Sofia Richie looked chic as ever as she stepped out for a romantic date at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica on Friday night, with her fiance Elliot Grainge. The 23-year-old daughter of singer Lionel Richie wore an all-black ensemble for the night, tucking her velvet top into her sleek black pants.
The model added a pop of color to the look with a pair of vintage-style violet heels, and was seen showing off the massive sparkler on her hand as she fussed with her hair. The blonde beauty wore her long tresses parted in the middle and cascading down her shoulders.
She accessorized the look with a stylish structured handbag, and looked glam with a hint of bronze eyeshadow and nude lipgloss on her pout. Meanwhile her beau, 28, matched her in a black sweater and pants, along with a pair of black sneakers and black-rimmed eyeglasses.
The couple recently celebrated their new relationship status with an engagement party, where Sofia stunned in a white and floral print Bernadette dress with white platform heels. The social media sensation shared photos from the event to her Instagram, featuring her future husband in a cream-colored double-breasted suit with a crisp white shirt.
The party was also attended by her siblings Nicole Richie, 40 – who came with rocker husband Joel Madden, 43 – and Miles Richie, 28. In the caption she said she was ‘obsessed’ with her better half who is the CEO of indie record label 10K Projects and works with Trippie Redd and Tekashi 6ix9ine.
His father is Universal Music Group chairman and CEO Lucian Grainge who has worked with Elton John and Katy Perry. The model shared her engagement news on social media on April 20 with photos from the romantic candle lit proposal.
The outdoor proposal went down at sunset with photos showing a shocked Sofia standing with her hands over her face as Elliot got down on one knee.Grainge curated a romantic scene, placing himself and Richie on a bed of white flower petals surrounded by dozens of cream colored candles in glass vases.
Sofia shared a snap from the big moment on social media followed by one of the pair sharing a kiss. In the second photo, a large emerald cut diamond ring rested on her left hand. Sofia has been dating Elliot for a year. The pair were initially spotted in each other’s company last year, and they went Instagram official in March.
A source spoke to Entertainment Tonight at the time and expressed that the happy couple had known each other for an extended period of time prior to the start of their romance. ‘They have been friends for years and Elliot is also close with Sofia’s brother, Miles. It’s very nice for Sofia to date someone who her family approves of and likes,’ they said.
Previously, Sofia was in a high-profile relationship with reality television personality Scott Disick, 39, whom she began seeing in 2017. The two have a 16-year age gap. The pair remained together for nearly three years before they broke things off in May of 2020. The former couple reconciled that July, although they went on to separate for a final time in August.
