Storm Models

Sophie Sumner (born 15 January 1990) is a British fashion model. She first came into the public eye as the runner-up of Britain's Next Top Model, Cycle 5 and later won America's Next Top Model, Cycle 18.

Early life

Born on 15 January 1990 in Madrid, Spain to Lloyd Sumner, an electrician, and Nancy (née Redman), an English teacher. As the oldest of four siblings; Anna, Jeffrey, and Joseph, Sumner had to adopt a mature work ethic and mindset. Sumner spent the majority of her early years in Oxford, England. She studied at Headington School, a comprehensive boarding school for girls, in Oxford where she met and befriended, Harry Potter actress, Emma Watson. Throughout her time at Headington School, Sumner was occasionally mocked for her slim figure and ginger hair. But being an active member of the school's field hockey team increased her self-esteem drastically. After going on a summer vacation to Penetanguishene, Ontario, Canada Sumner began colouring her hair blonde. Sumner had plans to complete a degree in cell and molecular biology at Exeter University, but decided to defer it to focus on modelling after successfully auditioning for Britain's Next Top Model.

Reality TV

Sumner was a part of the cast of Britain's Next Top Model, Cycle 5, and was the 10th girl chosen to enter the top model house, due to her unconvential and unique look. However, Sumner's first week in the main part of the competition was a negative one, as Sumner struggled at the photoshoot and produced a weak photo. It was in the 4th episode that Sumner became a true stand-out, with her photo being deemed as the best in the bunch, earning her a first-call out. Afterwards, Sumner avoided the bottom two and produced strong photographs, but notably landed in the bottom two again in episode 8, for her seemingly bad attitude and know-it-all personality, however, the judges rejected the idea of Sumner being a know-it-all, saving her from the bottom two. Sumner made it all the way to the final 2, but was beaten by Mecia Simson.

America's Next Top Model

Sumner was chosen as one of the 7 British All-Stars to compete in America's Next Top Model: British Invasion, along with her fellow Cycle 5 contestants, Annaliese and Ashley. The judges regard her personality as "lit up a room", leading to her being labelled as "Illuminata" by Banks herself. Sumner earned a total of 2 first call-outs, 4 second call-outs, and 3 third call-outs. Her consistency, personality, strong runway walk and portfolio led to Sumner becoming the eighteenth winner of the show, over Laura LaFrate.

Simultaneously, Sumner becomes the first foreign winner of the show. Sumner's win also means that quite like other winners such as Jaslene Gonzalez, McKey Sullivan, Nicole Fox, Krista White she is the fifth winner without any appearances in the bottom two.

After Top Model

Sumner's debut single, 'Aiming For You' is now on iTunes, her Vogue Italia photos are featured in the August 2012 issue, and her CoverGirl ad will be featured on billboards all over the U.S., as will her ad for the America's Next Top Model perfume, Dream Come True. Sumner has stated that she is moving to the States and is currently deciding whether to move to New York City or Los Angeles. She is also currently active in raising funds for Breast Cancer Research with the help of her pink dog, Darcy. She created a fund raising page on a website of Cancer Research UK which she named PinkDarcyDog. In 2012, Sophie was seen playing Deepika Padukone's friend in the Bollywood movie Cocktail. She had dancing sequences and scenes in the movie as Deepika's close friend.

Personal life

She has a boyfriend named Rory Cottam, who is a member of the British band The Cheek and a dog named Darcy, which she frequently dyes bubblegum pink, matching her own hair color, which frequently is dyed either blonde or pink.
