Early life and family
Khia Lopez was born on 29 August 2004, in Los Angeles, California USA, so her zodiac sign is Virgo; she holds American nationality. She lives with her family, and gets a lot of support from her parents, who attentively follow all her endeavors. Her father is James Lopez, and her mother is Tiffany Palladine who works as a makeup artist, and also lands minor roles in TV shows. Khia has two younger brothers named Jett and Kash, and Khia spends time with her family whenever she is not busy with her work.
She draws inspiration from her mother, who is her best friend and role model.
Khia is now studying at John Glenn Middle School, scheduled to matriculate in 2022. She hasn’t shared any plans on her further education yet.
It is known that Khia started working as a model when she was only three years old. Her mother has always been very enthusiastic about the appearance and talents of her daughter, and took her to various rehearsals and castings to find a child modeling agency which would notice the growing-up star.
She started appearing on TV as a child model in news blocks, demonstrating clothes for kids at the age of nine. Khia was 11 years old when she participated in Isabella Couture’s Spring/Summer collection fashion show in 2015, walking gracefully on the catwalk, presenting the “Blush Pink” line at the LA Fashion Week in front of around 750 guests. The same year she appeared as a child model in the “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” TV talk show. Such clothing brands as Jak & Peppar, Rebel Yell among others invited Khia to work with them, and she was featured in their Instagram profiles and websites.
She now has commercial contracts with such brands as FashionNova, Oh Polly and Forever21. As of 2019, she has collaborated with such brands as Lidzkandi and Little Trendsetter; The Weekend Wardrobe has signed a long-term contract with Khia.
We’re So Fancy fashion blog
In September 2014 Khia’s friend Vandy Jaidenn Holder created a blog along with her mother, Terrah Jade, who is a photographer and social media manager. The blog was entitled “We’re So Fancy” and was intended to be a fashion blog and a news source for those who are keen on shopping, photography, fashion trends, etc. Khia and Vandy were supposed to be the main subjects of the blogs, sharing the teenagers’ point of view on fashion.
The blog was occasionally active until 2016, when it stopped being updated. During this period of time both girls gained sponsorships with Kenmark Eyewear, and modeled for several online stores, such as Joyfolie, ModerneChild and Panda Kitty Studios. However, the YouTube channel of the blog has only one video entitled “We’re So Fancy Intro Video”, and a couple of several-seconds-long vlogs about the girls filming an episode for the channel. However, nothing else has been posted since the channel, and the blog’s website is now unavailable.

Khia shares her daily looks, outfits, manicure details, etc. Her profile on the TikTok (former Musical.ly) application gathered more than 1.1 million subscribers, on which she often shares her dancing videos.
