Sofia Richie is somehow getting paid to wear clothes at the Venice Film Festival

76th Venice Film Festival, Italy - Opening Night

Here are some photos from last night’s Venice Film Festival opening ceremony/premiere red carpet for La Vérité. Considering what a snooze this year’s Cannes Film Festival was, I didn’t have any expectations for Venice as far as fashion or buzz. But I’m surprised to see that various companies, sponsors and modeling agencies really did send some young models to Venice just to be the “pretty faces” on the carpet. Sofia Richie was there, and please don’t judge Americans – we don’t know why she’s a thing either. She’s a “model” and she’s dating Scott Disick. That’s her claim to fame. And now she’s getting paid to go to Venice and look bored in a two-piece Please Don’t Buy by Twinset.

Juliette Binoche in Armani, with wet-look hair. I think so much of Binoche’s beauty but wow, she has some consistently bad styling, huh? Catherine Deneuve walked the carpet with Binoche – Catty wore Gaultier and looked kind of awful.

Iman wore Valentino and while this piece is confusing and weird, I kind of love it on her.

Martha Hunt in Alberta Ferretti. I wish the bodice was a little bit longer? You know what I mean? Like, this would have been awesome if the grey part was just a tad longer.

Candice Swanepoel was one of the few models there who did NOT wear black. She wore this Etro gown in a champagne shade. Blah.

    Sofia Richie and Nicola Peltz are starting to morph into each other.

    I thought Candice Swanepoel was Miranda Kerr at first.

    • Kitten says:

      Nicola Peltz is far prettier IMO.

      • S says:

        I used to think Peltz was gorgeous but her lip fillers are awful and put her whole face out of whack.

      • Kitten says:

        See, I don’t think the lip injections look *bad* per se but I do think that they ruined the uniqueness of her face, which TBH she didn’t have a lot of to begin with. She was always very conventionally pretty but now she’s just extremely generic-looking. Like, she could easily be confused with a number of other actresses and models.

      • S says:

        Yep, it’s a fine line between conventionally beautiful and numbingly generic and those fillers pushed her over that line.

  2. BeanieBean says:

    Sofia: so young to look so dissipated; Catherine D: do not understand that dress, but I like her shoes; Juliette B: never wear wet hair again; Iman: goddess.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      WHO IS THAT HOTTIE WITH IMAN?! And agree, she is a goddess. not many people could pull off that dress. Maybe just her and Grace Jones. Hoult looks absolutely YUMMY, too.

      I don’t get why Sofia Ritchie is a thing. she’s not UGGO by any means, but she really isn’t anything special. had to laugh when I read the info on the link that CB posted about how Disick bought her an Aston Martin…she was all braggy on insta but I guess didn’t notice the message on the dash about how the car was 129 days past due for service.

      • Oliviajoy1995 says:

        I know! I kept thinking it was Ryan Gosling with her. I had to keep going up and looking over and over. (It’s not him btw)

    • Still_Sarah says:

      @ BeanieBean : Agree (Sofia). Agree (Catherine). Agree (Juliette). Damn right (Iman).

  3. Sarah says:

    That horrible outfit is exactly what Catherine Deneuve deserves. Ce n’est qu’une imbécile.

  4. Char says:

    Imagine being Young, rich, with privileges enough to buy you education or even an career and still trying to be famous by attaching yourself to a lesser Kardashian. Sad.

  5. MachineElf says:

    Beyond awful tailoring on Sophia Ritchies outfit.

    • Gail says:

      The top looks as though it was a “my first project” in my 7th grade home ec class, decades ago. Ghastly.

    • Kosmos says:

      I just don’t understand the importance of Sofia Richie, do you? Not even sure over time if her relationship with SD will work out. He hasn’t been able to stay with one person for long. I would run if I were her, but she’s so impressionable and she probably thinks he walks on water……

  6. OuiOkay says:

    Her claim to fame should be her dad and sister. I can’t believe people care about this Scott person so much

    • serena says:


    • manta says:

      Yeah, her claim to fame is being the daughter of a mega successful singer/songwriter, Grammy and Oscar winner. I’m pretty sure for a European audience, Richie’s fame >>Disick’s.
      The same reason Paris Jackson is apparently a model or Coco Sumner or Georgia Jagger. Daddy’s a superstar.

  7. Lady Baden-Baden says:

    Absolutely nothing wrong with so-called plus-sized models – they should be standard – but that skirt on Sofia Richie looks like she insisted on forcing herself into a typical ‘sample’ size. Maybe that’s why she looks so miserable?

    • Kath says:

      ummmm… she is not considered plus size by anyone. She is quite petite actually. She’s only 5’6″ which is why she looks stocky compared to real models.

    • Anna says:

      No one refers to Nicole Richie as plus sized. She’s not a plus sized model.

  8. Lucy says:

    Does Nick even realize how ridiculously good looking and sexy he is? And if he does, who the f*ck told him he f*cking could? Come to think of it, I don’t think there’s a single former Skins: First Generation guy (Nick, Dev Patel, Jack O’Connell, Daniel Kaluuya, Joe Dempsie) who didn’t grow up to become hot AF.

    • Kitten says:

      That’s so true about the cast. Nick was always gonna be hot but this might be the hottest I’ve ever seen him look.
      I loved Skins.

  9. Lady Baden-Baden says:

    Who is kinda dirty looking but definitely hot dude with Iman?

    • alexc says:

      That’s Francesco Carrozzini – he’s married to Anna Wintour’s daughter. His mother was the late Franca Sozzani of Vogue Italia.

  10. Eenie Googles says:

    Why does she have such a cheap dye job?

    • Gil says:

      Her hair is the least of her problems. She did something to her lips, it doesn’t look like she had fillers, she did something weird to it.

      • SK2 says:

        She’s definitely had something done to her lips and it does not look good. I also think she’s in the process of getting her sharp widows peak lasered away…

  11. Bella Bella says:

    Those young women… I have no idea who they are! LOL

  12. Savannah says:

    Don’t hate the wet look on Binoche but it should be lying on her shoulders like that.
    If they had pulled it all the way back it would’ve looked good on her. The waves in the front is very flattering.
    The dress how ever.. Not so much. Too bad, she is one gorgeous woman.

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      Apparently, the wet look is making a big comeback in the fall shows. And I agree; should have been more “styled” and not hanging in strands on her shoulders.

    • MsIam says:

      Not understanding wet look hair at all. Outside of being in a swimming pool or the ocean, who wants to look like that? It looks greasy and dirty to me. Sorry.

  13. ME says:

    Has she done any acting? What exactly does she do? Is she an actual model that does runway or is she “the daughter of Mr. Richie so let’s just make her famous for no reason”?

    • yo says:

      she almost never does runway shes short but she has done somewhat relevant modelling stuff (tommy hiilfiger, adidas, mackage, fendi). she was also on her sister’s reality show . anyways you guys are weird bc whenever celebrity offspring get into acting/singing/modelling everyone shouts nepotism but if they dont do much they are also criticized lol

      • aurora says:

        Well, there actually IS something inbetween acting/singing/modelling and doing not much, so…criticizing is totally justified IMO.

  14. serena says:

    I don’t really get why Sophia Richie is a thing, sorry but I think she has zero appeal as a model. Also she has reaaaaaally bad hair.

  15. Meg says:

    I read kids used to say they want to grow up to be astronauts etc now most say they want to be reality show/YouTube stars. That is so depressing and I fear a result of seeing girls like Sophia Richie get paid to go to events looking bored, not even showing she has talent as a model

  16. Mia says:

    I am absolutely delighted by Iman’s outfit.

    • LeaTheFrench says:

      Me too. Original but not in a try hard kind of way. It just looks elegant and interesting on her. Then again, she would make a trash bag look like high fashion…

  17. Suzieq359 says:

    Forget Sofia. We’ve got Iman in this post, who has been winning all week. I like Sofia, though she has zero model qualities, but she isn’t worth a mention when Iman is present and looking this fab!

  18. Ann says:

    Sofia Richie has zero presence, she’s just there and she’s blah. The top she is wearing looks really cheap. Like someone rolled it up under to hide a bad hemline or something.

  19. tw says:

    Starting to believe the rumors about richie, lohan and various models being escorts.

  20. Nev says:

    Iman is EVERYTHING.
    Julliette tried a Met Gala Kim but no dear…..
    Sofia looks nice.
    Candace looks fantastic.

  21. clairej says:

    Sofia annoys me more than anyone. Plus Martha Hunt struck it very lucky. I always forget her face.

  22. Karen2 says:

    Just remembered Venice was where TC first rolled up with KH. I can still see the photo. They both looked so gorge. Or am I wrong.

  23. SM says:

    Oh Nicholas. So pretty. As for that Richie girl, she was paid to fly to Italy and put into some nice clothes? Would it kill her not to look like this was done by holding her hostage? And why is a wet look a look? It always looks like they just jumped on the carpet right from the shower. At best. At worst – it looks as if the hair has not seen a shower in a month and instead of showering someone just decided to solve the problem not by suggesting a shower but by throwing some hair gel.

  24. MeganBot2000 says:

    That red thing looks like your nan’s special raincoat, you know, the one that folds up to the size of a hanky, comes with its one tiny little container made of the same fabric, and doubles as a shopping bag.

  25. PutnamPrincess says:

    Nicholas Hoult is a total snack.

  26. Ash says:

    Sophia Richie is not model material in any way, shape, or form. Awkward.

  27. Ash says:

    Candace and Martha on the other hand, look stunning as always. Although I think Candace had something done to her face recently?
