At only 19 — two years after being discovered in her native Copenhagen — Frederikke Sofie has caught the attention of designers and casting directors with her natural curls and effortless style. She’s already appeared in numerous issues of Vogue and i-D; nabbed Céline and Zara campaigns, and recently walked a slew of top shows for fall including Chanel, Givenchy, Versace, Céline and Michael Kors. But New York Fashion Week was special for a different reason: “It was my birthday on Feb. 15, right in the middle of shows, plus my family and a few close friends were in town,” Sofie said. “It was really great…celebrating my birthday alongside the fashion parties.” As for what she never left the house without: “My cigarettes, my phone…and a big smile, of course.”
