The Select Guest

TS7_Sophie Elgort-12.jpg


Featured 1.15-1.21.18 | With a talented family that includes esteemed fashion photographer Arthur Elgort and teen heartthrob Ansel Elgort, this week’s guest could’ve rested on her laurels. Instead, she's built a ridiculously successful career as a photographer in her own right, shooting for some of the world's most highly esteemed publications including Vogue Thailand, Elle, Glamour, Paper Magazine and Teen Vogue. Sophie Elgort, who spent her youth and college years as a ski racer (yes, you read that right), is passionate about playing the guitar and singing (yes, you also read that right). She was also named one of Forbes 30 under 30 in 2016, and is just as often found in front of the camera as a judge and guest speaker as she is behind it. She co-created the style column for The Financial Times — Suits in the City — featuring the looks of NYC's best-dressed professionals shot by, you guessed it, our Select Guest. In addition, Sophie co-founded Through Our Lens, a non-profit that mentors teen girls from underserved communities through photography, and speaks regularly at some of the coolest museums on the planet. Oh! And she's also about to have her first baby. I mean, it's an understatement for sure, but this born-and-raised New Yorker is a force, and she's only just begun. Welcome to Sophie’s week.
