Sophie Dahl Net Worth: Produced September 15, 1977 in London, England, UK, she was understood in the ’90s and early 2000s for her significant physical look, which she turned to her edge on the international trend period. She was the face of some ad campaigns on behalf of designer brands and style magazines. As a writer, she composed her first novella in 2003 entitled The Man with all the Dancing Eyes and followed it with Playing With the Grown-ups in 2008. In 2010 Dahl composed The Delicious Miss Dahl, a cookbook featuring recipes that have been recreated to get a six-part BBC 2 show of exactly the same name. Blow introduced her to direction at Storm Model Agency in London who signed her to modeling efforts for Versace, Alexander McQueen, Patrick Cox and Pringle, amongst others. Dahl is the daughter of celebrity Julian Holloway and writer Tessa Dahl. Her paternal grandparents were celebrity Stanley Holloway and former chorus dancer Violet Lane. Sophie Dahl is married to the vocalist Jamie Cullum.

In addition to modeling and acting, she also writes short stories, several of which have been published in various magazines.
Was first discovered by Isabella Blow, a Vogue stylist/fashion expert who also lived in Sophie's building. Sophie had just had an intense argument with her mother, and was sitting on the front steps of their apartment weeping. The two women (who up until that point were strangers) struck up a long conversation, and Isabella was awestruck by Sophie's beauty. Soon after, she referred Sophie to Sarah Doukas of the Storm modeling agency in London.
Maternal granddaughter of children's author Roald Dahl and Acadamy Award winning actress Patricia Neal.
On her ideal of happiness: "Being incredibly rich, living in Italy, cooking pizza barefoot and pregnant."
I'd rather be treated like any other model - being booked because a client likes the look of me, not because I'm size 16 with big tits. There's nothing sexual about model's typical androgynous skinniness.
To my detriment, I'm quite rosey-visioned about the idea of love. It's slightly embarrassing but it's part of who I am.
