Sofi Green

I met Sofi at an event back in 2014. I complimented her look and she obliged - then stated something like...that's what I'm talking about women supporting women. I said "oh yes, I'm totally a girls - girl... no hate LOL !" This was way before we started our blog.  I knew I was going to create a cool platform for women, just didn't know what. However, what I did know from that interaction - is that she was the kind of girl that  I liked ; fast forward 3 years later not only has she extended her title from VH1 host to Reality Show personality, she also has a great single out. We caught up with her to chat about it all.

Hi Sofi, 


Style: How did you get started in the entertainment industry?

Sofi: I wrote a few songs with my cousin, Dominique. What we created caught the attention of these dope producers in Atlanta. I eventually moved there to record a project, shortly after I was offered a deal in NYC - Short version of hard work.

Style: What would you being doing if, you weren't in entertainment?

Sofi:  I think that I would be a great personal trainer/nutritionist.

Sofi: Before being cast on reality TV - what was your opinion of it? Has that changed since becoming a member of LHHNY?


I thought reality TV was simply just shooting and storylines. It's not. It's a lot of time consuming work. We shoot for over 6 months. I also felt that people were crazy for exposing their love lives. LOL! I still think that. However, everything is so exposed now with social media, it's just smart to get paid for it; if you are going to share. 


Style: Can we expect any surprises from you in the new season?

Sofi: You will have to stay tuned. I will be offering up a little more for sure. 


Style: What does being an "It" Girl mean to you?

 

Sofi: Being an "It" Girl to me is  living unapologetic. Relentlessly going after your dreams and smashing your goals. We don't see limits - no glass ceilings. "It" GIRL's have an authentic quality about them that can never be explained, or copied. We are the trailblazers.


Style: What is your "It" factor? 

Sofi: I am soft and feminine...yet fearless.  My style is classic never trendy, therefore I'm always in style. Always myself. 

 

Style: What are you "It" Fashion items for S/S/17? 

 Sofi: I am definitely feeling head scarves and crop tops. I also have an eye on the neutral tone Ala├»a suede sandal and a blush toned jacket.

Style: What advice can you give to aspiring talent wanting to break into the industry. I would say to be strong and get prepared to sacrifice. It is going to require all you have to get yourself out there. It's a daily grind; no one is going to grind for your dreams except you.
