Who... Zuri Marley

Bob Marley’s granddaughter.

Daughter of Carleene Samuels and David ‘Ziggy’ Marley

Where... In Vogue and Nylon magazines

Current status... student at New York University, musician, actress, creative mastermind

Aspirations... to inspire people to do, whatever they want to do regardless of social norms or status. We all have to break through something, so hopefully we can fight together!

My signature look is... influenced by dancehall fashion. When I perform I really pull from the golden age of the dancehall queen!

Style Tip: Add texture! Minimalism doesn’t have to be boring; play with your silhouettes and add pieces that have some texture or shape that will elevate your minimalism. It’s not expensive, either; this can be done using things you may already have in your closet or hand-me-downs and vintage pieces!

My fave places to shop are... thrift stores. It’s way cheaper and you can find pieces that no one else will have. I have a collection of vintage dresses that I don’t wear because I’d rather put them on display.

My must-have make-up items are... a full coverage foundation, blush and a beautiful eye gloss. I love a good glow!

What works best in my hair is... water, there’s nothing better. Other than hydration, I’d say the Jane Carter Solution scalp serum when my hair is straight. I still haven’t found the perfect products for my hair when it’s curly (any recommendations?) but I always lay my edges with ecostyler gel or some other edge control product! I also wear a lot of wigs and usually rock a black wig cap, I find it to be très chic!

What I miss most when I am not in Jamaica is... the food! Let’s be real — I used to eat, like, four patties at once back home. I’m simply addicted to them. Also you can’t get a Hellshire fried fish abroad — nothing compares. Also, I miss having access to a dub club! Dub music is so important to me; you can feel so much history and heart when you listen to a good mix!

My favourite Marley song is... I’ve been enjoying Bad Card lately, but maybe one of my all-time favourites is Conscious Party by the Melody Makers!

Five years from now Zuri Marley will be ... working hard as hell!

Being a Jamaican has taught me... you can make something out of nothing.
