    omg! we like the same music. she has so much potential, I see it shining

  • S.

    Crystal stilts? I’m surprised. I like the same bands, the same movie, and Schiele is my favorite painter as well. Considering all this, I can’t but to think she’s super cool. On top of that I also like her look a lot. It seems very London.

  • erich singer

    Sorry, but none too attractive this one is. In this man’s opinion, models should be pleasant to look at, like Adriana Lima and Doutzen Kroes. Just my two cents.

  • Lucia

    That´s funny – she looks like female version of Robert Pattinson. :)

  • She has great taste in music, art, culture films, dark dark and smoking hot!

  • love the face! but i hate the way of “hide your neck” posing

  • F

    she’s brilliant!! love her face and style.

  • Nora

    Amazing!!!!! looks like we have a new rising British little star on the way!

  • ariadne

    There’s something about this girl.. I just love her. Need to work the expressions tho.
    And nice taste in music.

  • My name’s Sophie, Yall’!

  • kmodl

    Too short and needs to work on facial expressions – they seem a little too listless in the polaroids. she does have a great couture look, though. hopefully she will grow!

  • erika

    ??? This choice completely confuses me. What am I missing here?

  • I really really REALLY hope she grows. I love love her look. So edgy yet not. Agree with S., very London.

  • Yasmin

    cool face and cute ears :-D she reminds me a little of Daria Strokous…
    Too bad she’s only 5’7.5″ !

  • aaaa

    Glad someone whose height just like me can do modelling! she has a potential!

    did she just say she loves ‘The Dreamers” and kinda has watched it so many times? it’s a story about duck, tatas, and BUTTerflies!

  • aaaa

    why did she hide neck a lot? isn’t it making her shorter? LOVE HE! ALL THE WAY PATTS!

  • Nora

    why do you people pick on her personal taste in films/music/whatever?! this article is about modelling and she is only 16, very young and in her right start of her career, she has great potential, looks very cool, not just a ‘boring pretty face’. she soon will be listed on, im sure ;)

  • London

    love the face, but 5’7 :( no thanks

  • Dave

    Trying a little too hard to be interesting.

  • NEX

    she’s good, but need more intensity in her eyes.

  • Yasmin

    :-D @ Fredrik!! But you write it ” Y’all” and not “Yall'” … in case you didn’t write it by mistake that way :-P

  • HH

    This is I love London girls =D good luck Sophie!

  • Clarence

    She’s with IMG which is definetely the biggest agency! if they took her its for certains reasons! i can see a huge potential in her, she’s very givenchy/burberry and many others..

  • Izzy

    I don’t understand what happened to the Fashion industry! Supposedly models have to inspire women, make them
    Want to have and look like they do! Now I don’t know any woman that would like to look like this girl!! Besides the fact that she is 16 years old… I think women should start speaking up for themselves and not allow this industry to make us believe thats what we “need to look like.

    She is cute and probably an interesting person with a huge marketing behind her, but from that to being desirable… Nah don’t think so. She can sell books that’s pretty much

  • Jordan

    @ Izzy

    Models need to be desirable if they’re selling SEX, lingerie, playboy, FHM, etc. don’t think this is the case, she’s 16…

  • Izzy

    @ Jordan, not saying desirable in the sexual way. But anyway, I will not engage in this discussion as obviously it won’t change anything!

  • Izzy

    @ jordan by the way ISAbeli Fontana signed with VS when she was 15 and has starred in huge campaigns as we all know!

  • Love her,and we like her expression, can tell she has a great sense of style!!

  • sascha

    She got a great style, but she’s not a model to me, sorry :/

  • She has an unique look, and I really like it! And I love how she is 5’7.5 so it gives hopes to girls who aren’t so tall@ :D

  • The eye

    Absolutely gorgeous! Love her beautiful sad eyes . . . and she already has a great sense of style! OTW for sure!

    -The Eye x

  • ronie

    I like her eyes. soft looking. :)
