Who is Sofia Richie?
Sofia Richie can tell you how hard it is to grow up in the shadow of a famous father and a famous sister. She can also tell you what it’s like to occupy a niche, despite all the speculation and pressure. She is constantly in the news, and all for the right reasons. She is a future model with big contracts in her pocket and an impeccable fashion sense that is the talk of the town. Her long, messy blonde hair and liquid brown eyes have captured the hearts of many of today’s celebrities, including Justin Bieber. Whether it’s her publication in a magazine or an appearance on her sister’s reality show, Sofia has captured the attention of viewers. From hanging out with Hollywood celebrities to dating teen idols, Sofia leads the life most people dream about. She has a significant social presence, with millions of followers from around the world following her Instagram and Twitter.
Sophia’s initial claim to fame may be that she is the younger daughter of iconic musician Lionel Richie, but since her modeling debut in 2014, she has carved out a stable niche for herself among the hottest glitterati in Hollywood and the fashion world.
Prior to her modeling career, Sofia was a regular on her sister Nicole Richie’s TV show based on her own life, “Candidly Nicole,” which aired on VH1.
Her first appearance appeared in the “Who Wears What” feature issue of the acclaimed Elle magazine. The magazine has a huge circulation worldwide, and Sofia’s face became instantly recognizable after this article. Very soon she received a number of lucrative commissions, including publications in magazines such as Nation A-list Magazine, where Sophia was featured on the cover, and collaborations with Teen Vogue and Olay Skincare to promote the #FreshtoSchool online campaign.
That same year, she became the face of Mary Grace Swim and was signed with Select Model Management. In 2015, her modeling career exploded and she was involved in one major campaign after another. She participated in editorial shoots for Elle, Vanity Fair Italia, Unleash’d, Love Culture and appeared on the cover of Popular and ASOS Magazine. She has also participated in commercial campaigns for brands such as Brandy Melville and Young & Reckless.
While legendary pop icon Madonna announced Sofia as the face of her exclusive Material Girlin Fall, 2015 clothing line, designer Stella McCartney suggested Sofia attend Met Ball, 2015, as her personal guest.
In 2016 and early 2017, Sophia appeared on the covers of magazines such as Galore, W and Flaunt, and her then-partner, Justin Beiber, took to social media to praise her.
She has also starred for top brands such as Tommy Hilfiger’s spring/summer 2017 denim line, Moschino, Pretty Little Things, Adidas Originals and Foot Locker. She is currently considering a career in film and is in talks with big names in Hollywood.
