This week we are crushing on Abla Sofy!
Abla was born and raised in Morocco. After earning her Master’s Degree in Business from the International University of Rabat, she moved to Los Angeles at the age of 21 to study Fashion at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. She soon began putting her skills to use as a fashion stylist to up and coming Hollywood starlets.
Abla’s big break came when she got the chance to style Mohammed Hadid, father of none other than supermodel sisters, Gigi and Bella Hadid. Since then, she landed the job of creative director for GUESS & Paul Marciano, helping style and launch the Hailey Baldwin GUESS campaigns of 2016 and 2017. On top of styling, Abla has just made her music video debut in “Boom Boom” by international superstars RedOne, Daddy Yankee, French Montana and Fifth Harmony’s Dinah Jane, which topped charts all over the world and has garnered over 60 Million views in less than a month.

Talented, driven, beautiful and ambitious, there’s a lot to crush when it comes to Abla Sofy!
What is the first thing that you notice about a potential love ?
Vibe and connection at first sight. I need to feel it the first time I see or meet the person. If I don’t get the persons attention the first second, I know it will never happen. First impression is everything to me. It’s either we have it or not.
What is your instant deal breaker?
My instant deal breaker is people that are self-absorbed or when they only speak about themselves. That really pushes me away. When I don’t feel any curiosity about me or my life, that tells me he’s not really interested.
What is the piece of romance advice you have ever received?
The best romance advice I have ever received is to be with someone with similar values. When you get into a relationship with someone that has different values, I think it’s a conflictual relationship from the start. The person will try to change or you will try to change the person, but it will only make both of you unhappy.
What’s the strangest thing someone has done to get your attention?
I had a neighbor from China and he tried many times to invite me for dinner that I nicely refused and then he came to me one day with a real tattoo that had my name in Arabic in the back of his neck. I couldn’t believe it!
