Of her love for acting, Jazzy says that there is no end to exploring a character. In her signature boots, lipstick, and hats – that have not changed since her idyllic early years in Jamaica– Jazzy’s got that certain cool about her, with a wealth of warm vulnerability. Seemingly care-free in her mom’s Vivienne Westwood shearling coat, a 60′s-era black dress and motorcycle boots, Jazzy has a deep story to tell. It takes guts to turn the camera on yourself, especially when you’re young and and struggling with a hidden and onerous disease called Hepatitis C, as Jazzy did in order to find a way to express her feelings and bring awareness to a cause that few understood.
Jazzy wears the support and love of her large and extensive family on her sleeve in a button-up shirt inherited from a step-grandfather, a Parliamentary barrister, which she wears as a dress. Under a classic Alexander Wang blazer with major 1970s-by-way-of-2011 Charlotte Olympia wedges, Jazzy makes a staid staple rock. She owns and wears many pieces from her grandmother, whom Jazzy describes as “the most beautiful woman” she’s ever seen, with “amazing long, black hair and piercing bright, blue eyes, she was always perfect, always immaculate with her makeup. With six sisters and two brothers on both sides of the ocean, one of the Jazzy’s biggest wishes is to have her entire family in one room, which has never happened as yet– but, for now, that room is not big enough in her East Village digs, where Jazzy studies acting in NYC.
