From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Sophie Dahl (born September 15, 1979) is a British model and author. Her mother is author Tessa Dahl, the daughter of the author Roald Dahl and his wife actress Patricia Neal. Her father is actor Julian Holloway, the son of the actor Stanley Holloway.

Dahl is largely known for being a plus-size model. Her best-known work was a magazine and poster advertisement for an Yves Saint Laurent perfume called Opium, showing her lying naked on a black velvet sheet. There were many complaints about the advertisement, resulting in it being removed from billboards in the UK.

As a child, Sophie Dahl was the inspiration for the character Sophie (the giant's helpmate) in Roald Dahl's The BFG. Latterly she has become an author herself, writing several short stories and in 2003 publishing the novella The Man with the Dancing Eyes, an "adult fairytale" (ISBN 0747563721).
