EDITOR'S LETTER

Modeliste’s November issue is all about the journey. Not only are our pages filled with the most enticing travel destinations, in particular Aruba where she had our Cover photoshoot, but also the ambitious path one takes to fulfill a dream or branch out into an entirely novel realm of opportunity and exploration. Our Cover Girl, Jean Watts, has risen the ranks from fashion and beauty influencer to emerging singer, with her first hit single Spirit Animal being released last month. As stunning as she is sweet, Jean is a true artist who exemplifies how a strong work ethic and dedication can lead to that adventurous leap into the professional culture of the music industry...and she’s rockin’ in.

Armed with natural beauty, an independent spirit, and sheer self-confidence, singer Jean Watts is as powerful of a voice as she is a rising star. With Modeliste’s Cover photoshoot set in the tropical paradise of Aruba on the grounds of the Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino, we got the first glimpse to Jean’s music with her latest single, Spirit Animal, being released that very week. We were instant-fans.

MODEL DIARIES

Q&A with JEAN WATTS

Tell us how you began your music career? Well, I was working on music in Chicago for a while until I moved to LA alone. Moving to LA was the best decision I've made, but I definitely went through it all. Lots of ups and downs. It was really hard. Eventually, I made some right decisions and now my team is more amazing than I could ever ask for. I am very grateful.

Current beauty obsession? Skin care was always a big thing for me, but I feel like it is even more, currently. Probably because we are doing more video stuff lately.

What’s next for you? Upcoming projects? Oh yeah, baby! I’m releasing my first single for radio from the EP called Blow, which is a track that I feel people will really like. And then after that I What do you love about Fall fashion? release the EP and my favorite songs! I am so excited! I’ve also, started Ugh, everything! It's so much easier to rehearsals for LIVE SHOWS which I create a great look with some layering am soo stoked for. and being able to add and take away. Thigh highs and key piece jackets are What would you like to say to your really my thing, at the moment. fans? Cannot wait to meet you guys and for 3 words to describe your personal you guys to get to know me! I love them style. very much! Random, edgy, and black. haha I love wearing black.

How would you describe your music? My EP is definitely fun, edgy, and diverse. I wanted my EP to show the different sides of me. Performing is a huge thing for me, also. When we write music, I really envision the What 3 things (aside from phone, performance on stage, music video, etc. wallet and keys) do you always carry I consider them all one piece of art. with you. Perfume, gum, and deodorant haha. What was the inspiration behind your newly released single, Spirit Guilty pleasure. Animal? This is so embarrassing, haha, but I We thought of the title Spirit Animal. play this little girl game on my iPad and I loved the idea of doing a fun themed I'm obsessed. All my friends make fun song that would be a blast to perform of me for it. It's called COVET ! I just to. Damon Sharpe and I listened to tried explaining what the game is, but it a bunch of different world songs and sounds even worse in writing haha. But, sounds to get some ideas and stay true it's a styling game that's very addictive! to nature. lol What’s your spirit animal? I really would like to think that I am my own spirit animal in a way, which is what Spirit Animal is about. When I was younger, I didn't like who I was molding to be because of the life around me, so I woke up one day and decided I didn't want to feel that way anymore and promised myself to be the best person I could possibly be. That decision changed my life. So I live to create art and to really inspire people that a healthy change no matter what the situation is, is possible. I hope to make some type of difference in the world and beat out the stereotype. Most played song on your iTunes? Any song from the album, 'Hurry Up, We're Dreaming' by M83. Life’s theme song at the moment? Still Down in the DM haha 26

Favorite look from your Modeliste Cover shoot? I will always have a personal attachment to the one in the water with the abandoned boat because the photographer, Dominic Petruzzi and I swam out there, mind you this boat was pure rust and jagged. So there was no safe place to stand and with the waves crashing, it was hard not to get sucked in and out and step on something sharp. So while trying to balance on the impossible, I tried posing and looking calm in the shots. So it was a lot of fun and definitely challenging, which I love.

Photographed by Dominic Petruzzi Styled by Maureen Borosdi

What did you love most about your Cover shoot in Aruba? The location! It didn't feel like work at all. And the Marriott Hotel was so beautiful and I loved my room. Shooting in the water was magical. The water felt like bath water, the stars, the music, the beach... breathtaking.

FALL IS BOUNTIFUL, FEED YOUR SKIN!

DON’T OVER EXFOLIATE

Over manipulating the skin is a big NO! Regular, excessive exfoliation using chemicals or mechanical methods can lead to damage on your skin.  If your method is to exfoliate to the point that your skin turns red and flaky, STOP!  Be gentle to your skin and treat it with care.

While November brings us Thanksgiving, a day to gather with family and friends while indulging in our most treasured family recipes to our heart's content, it also celebrates our skin. Yes, November is National Healthy Skin month! Celebrity dermatologist Dr. William Schweitzer suggests that as you prepare for your Thanksgiving celebration give your skin a treat with fall fixings and skin care tips that can help you keep your skin looking festive all through the holiday season.

KEEP YOUR SKIN MOIST

The moisture in your skin can be preserved by avoiding the use of harsh soaps that can strip away natural oils. Use instead a mild, non-abrasive, alcohol free cleanser. Minimize your exposure to moisture depleting elements such as the sun, harsh winds, low humidity, alcohol, and prolonged baths.

www.papiamentoaruba.com Papiamento Restaurant is a family-owned iconic treasure in Aruba. Founded in 1983 by Eduardo and Lenie Ellis who are still very much involved in the restaurant, Papiamento embraces proud traditions and precious European antiques that reflect the diverse heritage of Aruba. Eduardo and Lenie’s son, Edward Ellis, is now the head chef of the restaurant, who carries on the inventive culinary spirit of the restaurant’s cuisine. The restaurant name refers to the native language of Aruba. Its rhythmic cadence emerged from the blending of the languages of African slaves and their Spanish and Portuguese masters who fled the Inquisition. From the 1500’s, the language evolved to incorporate words from the French, English and Dutch colonists. Today it is still spoken by locals who may greet you with a cheerful, “Bon bini!”, meaning “welcome”.

82

Set in a lush tropical garden accented with native flowers, surrounding a sparkling reflective pool, Papiamento creates a magical ambiance reminiscent of times long past with antique treasures displayed in the 126 year old “cunucu” house which anchors the property in time. Dining here is rich in island elegance and history. Chef Edward has a well-deserved reputation for creating culinary masterpieces of Aruba’s Caribbean cuisine, using famed spices, fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables harvested from a plantation near the restaurant. Native ingredients include unlikely combinations of cactus and okra, favorites like squash laced with cinnamon, curries, local fish, and savory delights.


Daily specials surprise diners with creative blends of spices and herbs, introducing innovative fusions of traditional dishes, nouveau cuisine, vegetarian delights, fresh seafood, and original presentations to delight every palate. Family dining is especially celebrated by this family-owned restaurant, and the welcome at Papiamento is so personal that each guest feels a part of the greater Ellis family. Under twinkling lights, the magical island ambiance, the delicious Caribbean cuisine, and the warmth of friendly service make Papiamento Restaurant a wonderful dining experience in Aruba.
