Sofia Richie used to dream of being a singer and got help and advice from her singer father Lionel.
Sofia Richie used to dream of being a singer.
The 18-year-old model would turn to her father, 'All Night Long' hitmaker Lionel Richie, for advice and support on her career plans, and she learned a lot from him.
She said of her singing dreams: ''That was when I was younger and I was heavily in singing lessons.
''My dad would just sit with me and coach me through things. Those are definitely moments I'll never forget.
''He has the best advice and he's the greatest, but then, yet again, he's my dad!
''So, it's not like you'd take the advice like a regular teacher at school would give you. It's like, 'OK, dad, yeah yeah yeah!'''
But Sofia turned her attentions to a fashion career in 2014 and though she's posed for the likes of Elle, Vanity Fair and Nylon magazines, and was the face of Madonna's Material Girl line, she admits she wasn't very confident when she started her career.
She told Wonderland magazine: ''At first, I felt like I was a fish out of water. I did not feel like I fit in whatsoever.
''Now, I get it. I understand it, I understand the people, I understand the meaning, I understand the models, I understand the people sitting and watching.''
And one of the most memorable jobs the teenage star has landed so far was walking in Kanye West's Yeezy Season Four show in New York City, and she had a great time working with the rapper.
She said: ''[Kanye] literally was like, 'Go out there and have fun!'
''All he wanted was us to express his clothes the best way that we could, there weren't really any guidelines to walk in. He was just kind of like, 'Alright, you guys look great, kill it!'''
Sofia also recalled how ''bizarre'' it was going out with her older sister Nicole, now 35, when she was appearing on 'The Simple Life' with her then-best friend Paris Hilton.
She said: ''[Nicole] used to take me to fairs and all sorts of things.
''It was bizarre! It was definitely a weird life, going out and seeing her with a million paparazzi.''
