The 18-year-old model stuns on the cover of Wonderland magazine's winter 2016/2017 issue, rocking an off-the-shoulder bomber jacket and bandana tied around her neck, with her blond locks slicked back into an edgy 'do.
Nicole, who was adopted by Lionel and ex-wife Brenda Harvey in 1983, rose to fame after appearing on The Simple Life with her then-BFF, Paris Hilton, who has recently become close pals with Sofia. While chatting with the magazine, Sofia says that at the time, witnessing her sister constantly receiving so much attention and being followed around by the paparazzi was peculiar.
"[Nicole] used to take me to fairs and all sorts of things," she remembers. "It was bizarre! It was definitely a weird life, going out and seeing her with a million paparazzi."
Before she decided on a modeling career, Sofia once dreamed of becoming a singer like her dad. "That was when I was younger and I was heavily in singing lessons," she tells Wonderland. "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!" she adds. "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!'"
Sofia began modeling in 2014, and has already appeared in a number of fashion magazine editorials, including Elle, Vanity Fair Italia, Vogue China, Nylon, Lady Gunn, Unleash'd, ES, Complex and Who What Wear. She was also the face of Madonna's Material Girl fall 2015 collection, but admits she wasn't all that confident while first starting out.
"At first, I felt like I was a fish out of water," she confesses. "I did not feel like I fit in whatsoever."
"Now, I get it," she continues. "I understand it, I understand the people, I understand the meaning, I understand the models, I understand the people sitting and watching."
The talented teen recently got to walk in Kanye West's Yeezy Season 4 fashion show on Roosevelt Island's Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park in New York City, another experience she'll never forget.
"[Kanye] literally was like, 'Go out there and have fun!'" she says of the "Famous" rapper. "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!'"
