Lionel Richie tells his daughter Sofia to ''surrender to the moment'' when she's working.

The 18-year-old model is currently working with Michael Kors on the latest chapter of the designer's 'The Walk' series and has said her father - and musical legend - Lionel, 67, taught her to ''give 1,000 percent''.

She said: ''My dad's advice is to always have fun with everything I do. And when I get to set to give 1,000 percent and surrender to the moment.''

It isn't just the 'Hello' hitmaker that Sofia has been receiving advice from, as 35-year-old Nicole Richie - who Lionel legally adopted in 1990 after being her guardian for six years - taught her younger sister to be ''confident'' and ''comfortable''.

Sofia added to People magazine: ''Nicole has taught me to be confident within myself and comfortable at the same time. And to not let the small things get to you.''

And Sofia has been using her big sister's advice recently as she's had to fend off being in the public eye after she enjoyed a month long romance with pop star Justin Bieber.

The pair split in September but ''still communicate'' as the beauty was spotted at the 'Sorry' hitmaker's show in London last month.

A source said at the time: ''Sofia is still kind of annoyed at how Justin handled a few things, but they still communicate. They haven't hooked up in a minute.''

Whilst another added: ''They are still friends though and will continue to see each other like they did before they were dating. They are taking a backseat though on the romance side of things and just focusing on being friends at this time.''
