Sofia Richie's Modeling Career Has Real Potential, and Here are 6 Moments That Prove It

The Richie family (as in Lionel and Nicole) is notorious for being loved by the camera. Now, Nicole's younger sister Sofia is launching a modeling career, joining the family tradition. The 15-year-old is diving headfirst into the industry with a swimwear campaign for Mary Grace Swim. Could Sofia be the next Victoria's Secret Swimwear model? We took a look through her Instagram and discovered six snapshots that suggest some serious modeling success in Richie's future.

Fabulous in Fur

It appears that Richie has already mastered the art of high-low fashion. Sofia pulled together a full-on fur coat with denim cutoffs and a high side ponytail. We’re not sure whether Anna Wintour would pleased or horrified by Richie’s interpretation of the trend.

Street Style

Sofia has already nailed the obligatory model-about-town street style shot, complete with a beautiful Céline Luggage tote and a bag from luxury department store Harrod’s. The leather motorcycle jacket and dark skinny jeans merely add to the insouciant vibe of the ensemble.

Fierce in Animal Print

Sofia clearly understands that any model’s greatest weapon is her mastery of facial expression. Here, Richie rocks an leopard print sweater and a red bandana poolside while staring down the camera. If this isn’t a Top Model moment, we don’t know what is.

Model Eyes

Say what you will about her ensemble in this shot, but Sofia knows how to work the camera. Richie gives her photographer the stare down in rose-colored glasses and a vintage letterman jacket.

Sofia knows how to strike a playful pose, and pull off a trend as well. Here, the model displays a trendy chunky knit and messy side-braid. Based on the comments corresponding with the image, it seems Sofia already has quite a few fans of her burgeoning career.

Sporty Style

Sofia loves to rock a trend, and her oversize letterman jacket strikes a more modern note when paired with cutoffs and a crop top.
