For this month’s Scout Model Spotlight, we sat down with model, Sophia Jackson our spunky, green-eyed bae from the bay!

Name: Sophia Jackson

Where are you from? San Francisco, CA /Los Angeles, CA

How did you get scouted? Where were you? I was 6 years old shopping with my aunt at Old Navy in SF when I was approached by someone at Gap Kids.

Tell us details about your first job? I don’t remember much (I was 6), but I know it was a hot day in August and we were shooting winter coats so it was really hot. Still loved it though! 

What’s your favorite thing about being a model with Scout? I love the community within the agency #SCOUTFAM and I love that my agents at Scout are kind and easy to communicate with. They’ve made my dreams come true and exceeded my expectations to say the least!

What is the most memorable photo shoot you’ve been on? What was your favorite job/Client and why? I really love my job so it’s tough to narrow it down, but Anastasia Beverly Hills was super fun. Full glam and a rainbow wig – I’m sold.

 

 

What is the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you on set? Did anyone notice? One time I missed my morning flight to LA which made me over an hour late to a shoot and when I got there I spilled coffee all over the craft service table. Yes, people noticed.

Who would be a Dream Client that you would love to work with? Tom Ford.

When you’re not working, where would we find you? Probably shopping for black clothes or a new moisturizer.

Who is your style icon? Celebrities would be Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid but I also draw a lot of inspiration from my friends, family, people I work with and people on the street.

Who is your favorite fashion designer? Ricardo Tisci’s work at Givenchy stands out to me. Phoebe Philo. Tom Ford, of course.

Who is your celebrity crush? Pharrell and Emily Ratajkowski.

Who is the one musician/band (dead or alive) that you haven’t seen, but would love to? The Cure.

What do you always have in your model bag? I try to keep makeup wipes and moisturizer with me, plus pasties/nipple covers.

What is the best and worst purchases you’ve ever made? Best: High waisted lululemon leggings. Worst: Jackets without pockets!

What ridiculous thing has someone tricked you into doing or believing? I’ve learned the hard way that not everyone can use coconut oil as face moisturizer.

What is something that is really popular now, but in 5 years everyone will look back on and be embarrassed by? Fast fashion. It may take a lot more than 5 years to sort this one out but I think at some point, we’ll be embarrassed at how little we considered waste and sustainability in consumer expenditures.

What is your favorite go-to restaurant in San Francisco? Chez Maman. I recommend the Potrero Hill location for relatively easy parking and city views. Get the fries.

Where do you shop? Nordstrom. Aritizia. Zara. Revolve. Azalea SF. My all time favorite is Fwrd.com

If you could have any superpower what would it be? Teleportation.

What is an interesting fact that most people don’t know about you? I’m still not super comfortable wearing my hair curly. I straighten it on my days off because it’s easier to brush.

 

 

What was the last text you received? My boyfriend checking in. He’s cute.

What is the funniest gag gift you have received? I love getting random snacks as gifts. Hot cheetoh fries are the key to my heart!
