Full Name: Jean Estene


Occupation: Actress, Model, Filmmaker, Writer


Star Sign: Libra


Where are you from and where do you live now? I’m from Los Angeles and I live in New York now.


What are you into? I’m into colour schemes, the 90’s, oddities, freckles and velvet


What else do you do? I’m in Tisch Film at NYU. I really like photography and I’m into spirituality. I’m a vegan and I dig yoga and meditation also. I co-founded a collective called Chromatic and I’m the editorial director there. I’ve done some editorial write-ups and interviews for Milk Studios and Bunch Magazine. Poetry, jazz and N.E.R.D. all interest me as well.


What’s Chromatic about, why is it important? Chromatic was started by 6 of my friends and I at NYU. It started off as an artist collective and we soon thereafter decided that we had an obligation to breed change. Chromatic is redefining pop culture. We’re reshaping the definition of what it means to be an artist of color and more importantly, we’re shedding a light on the importance of integrity. We want to be more than just a group of dope people doing cool things. We want to make a difference. We want to change lives. We’re aiming for greatness. It’s a motion. It’s a wave. Really, it’s the recreation of Warhol’s factory, the recreation of the Harlem Renaissance, the recreation of Aaliyah, Missy and Timbaland in the 90’s. We’re opening a space wherein artists will be welcomed in to create freely. We’re making pop-up shops, holding charity events, throwing parties and through it all we’re focusing on the vibes. Out with the ego, in with the art. I’m excited.


What’s important to you? Integrity. Unconditional love.


Favorite Song? “Run to the Sun” – N.E.R.D.


What scares you most? Fear.


What’s a skill you wish you possessed? Teleportation!


What’s your secret obsession?  I Love Lucy.


Favorite books?  I’m a really big book worm!

  • The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz
  • The Alchemist – Paulo Coelho
  • How to Win Friends and Influence People – Dale Carnegie
  • Keel’s Simple Diary


Best fashion moment? Rihanna at the 2014 CFDA awards.


Favorite word: Somewhere between “groovy” and “aesthetics.”


What pisses you off? Arrogance.


Favorite Brand? Alexander Wang. Would love, love, love to work with him.


What fictional character do you relate to the most? Joan from Girlfriends. She’s really quirky, kind of clumsy, has an open heart and is very stylish!


What celebrity do you have a crush on?  Frank Ocean…River Phoenix (R.I.P.)


What inspires you most? Love inspires me. I think it’s the most fantastic thing that life has to offer.
