Sofia Richie’s Rich And Glamorous Life

Early Life

Sofia Richie was born in Los Angeles on the 24th of August 1998. Alongside Nicole Richie and Miles Richie, she is the youngest daughter of Lionel Richie with his second wife, Diane Alexander. Growing up, she considered her time visiting Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch and befriending Paris Jackson the best memories of her childhood.

Taking after her father, Sofia Richie grew up being passionate about music. She started taking singing and piano lessons at a very young age, and she also made appearances in some of her father’s shows and her sister’s TV series. However, she decided that pursuing music and living up to her father’s fame wasn’t how she envisioned the rest of her life to be. This moment was when she found her true calling in fashion and tried out modeling.

Sofia Richie began her modeling career when she was 14 years old and got her first break when she made it in a Teen Vogue spread. At the age of 15, she was able to land her first fashion contract and eventually joined London-based Select Model Management. Since then, she has modeled for Elle Girl, Tommy Hilfiger, Adidas, Michael Kors, Nylon, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Jeremy Scott, Philipp Plein, Yeezy, and many more. 

It may surprise you to know the height of the Richie sisters, especially as they both made it big in the fashion world. So, how tall is Nicole Richie and Sofia Richie? Nicole is 5 ft. 1 in, and Sofia is 5 ft. 5 in., which are considered not tall enough in the fashion world, but they proved these archaic standards wrong by becoming successful.

Besides being a fashion model, Sofia Richie is also a fashion designer and has collaborated with Frankie’s Bikinis to release a swimwear line with vibrant colors, tie-dyed patterns, and floral prints in 2019. To continue making her mark in the fashion designing world, she teamed up with Rolla Jeans and her sister’s lifestyle brand. She unveiled to the world their collaborative collections called “Rolla’s x Sofia Richie” and “Sofia Richie x House of Harlow 1960” in 2020 and 2021, respectively.

Sofia Richie’s net worth is $8 million, only a small portion of Nicole Richie’s net worth of $40 million and Miles Richie’s net worth of $200 million. But her net worth will continue to grow as she is also conquering the social media world by becoming an influencer. On her Instagram, she promotes beauty and wellness, including products from Suspicious Antwerp, Darya Hope, Nip & Fab, Lulus, and Cotton On. Doing this on the side is a perfect source of passive income that would allow her to continuously make her net worth grow.

From August to December 2016, Sofia Richie dated pop singer Justin Bieber. It was a relationship that was much-covered by the media since he is one of this generation’s most popular pop stars. Unfortunately, the singer wasn’t ready for a relationship based on several sources, which initiated their separation.

Their age difference had also caused a media frenzy, especially when they made their relationship known to the public in September 2017. They both admitted to having an on-and-off kind of relationship until August 2020 when they decided to go their separate ways. Recently, she has been dating music executive Elliot Grainge, the son of Universal Music Group chairman and CEO Lucian Grainge, since April 2021.
