She’s also done fashion campaigns, and maintains the blog called “Somewhere With Her”.
The Net Worth of Ashley Sky
How rich is Ashley Sky? As of mid-2019, sources estimate a net worth that is over $300,000, earned largely through a successful career in modelling. She’s signed to several modelling agencies, and has travelled the world for her work. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Discovery
Very little is known about Ashley’s life before her rise to fame as a model, as she has not shared a lot of details regarding her family and education. It is also not known if she already intended to become a model at a young age. She grew up in Miami and is of Native American as well as Brazilian descent.
Sometime during her youth, she became inspired by professional models of Brazilian descent such as Alessandra Ambrosio. She then tried her hand at forming connections with other aspiring models and professional photographers through the website Model Mayhem, which is owned by the new media company called Internet Brands – the parent company also owns CarsDirect, Crafster, and “WAHM” magazine. Shortly after doing photo shoots with several professional photographers, some of her photos gained attention as they circulated online, eventually catching the eye of the modelling agency Wilhelmina, based in Miami. She was contacted and offered a contract, which of course she accepted – the first step on the ladder to success.
Wilhelmina Models and Modelling Projects
Wilhelmina is a talent agency and modelling agency based in New York, though they also have offices in Los Angeles, London, Chicago, and the Miami office which contacted Sky. The company was founded in 1967 and provides full-service representation to models. They also have contracts with athletes, entertainers, artists, and musicians. It is the first and only publicly traded modelling company, opening its doors in 2009 after its acquisition by New Century Equity Holdings Corp.
Ashley stayed eight months with the company, and gained numerous projects, however, she felt that she was limited by Wilhelmina, and decided to leave the company to try things out on her own. Soon she started getting features for various publications such as “Maxim”, which is a men’s monthly magazine with a circulation of over nine million readers, focused on photography of models, actresses, and singers whose careers are at a peak. She also did work for “Vice”, a Canadian-American magazine focused on arts, culture, and news, owned by Vice media which also owns a broadcast news unit, a publishing imprint, a record label, and a film production company.
Recent Projects and Blog
Ashley’s work with popular magazines continued, as she also appeared in an issue of the magazine “FHM”. It is a men’s magazine published around the world and features models, artists, reality stars, singers and television presenters. The magazine is known to have featured several high profile models such as Miranda Kerr, Irina Shayk, and Emily Ratajkowski. She also appeared in the ad campaign for Buffalo David Bitton in 2014, a fashion company focused on selling various types of clothing with a focus on denim, appearing in the campaign alongside professional basketball player Chandler Parsons.
She also appeared in the music video entitled “Otis” by Kanye West and Jay Z; the single is a part of the duo’s collaborative album called “Watch the Throne”, and has a posthumous feature of soul singer Otis Redding whose song “Try a Little Tenderness” is sampled in the song. She also managed a fashion, lifestyle, and travel blog called “Somewhere With Her” which featured a bit of her life away from modelling, and gained a lot of attention in line with her popularity.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, it is known that Sky has been in several relationships in the past, and has been known to disappear from her online endeavors when things get serious, only returning when the relationship sours. However, many of her followers have noted that she has disappeared from her online work once more, which may indicate a new relationship. There is also a possibility that her actions are a response to her no longer being interested in pursuing modelling.
