The Saxon Princess

Metisha Larocca is Magical. Her beauty is as undeniable as her source material, she’s a constant reminder that while we are just mortals, we can be so encapsulated in our flesh and bone beautifully. We are excited to feature her in our current Issue not only as KISS International, but one of the most dynamic woman in the pages. Enjoy these slices of Victorian fashion in original period fashion that I shot with her at the Deliciously Vintage Boutiquein Chicago, IL.

KISS: As an emerging actress, will we sfee you in comedies, dramas or action films or all of the above?

Metisha:  Well I am training for all 3 genres but my preference would be dramas.

KISS: Give us one fact about you that people don’t know?

Metisha:  Most people don’t know that I have my masters in journalism, and that I used to play basketball…I was a point guard

KISS: Moving from Germany to the Miami, what was your biggest adjustment with American life?

Metisha: One of the biggest adjustments was the American mentality, secondly I would have to say the weather. It is always nice and sunny in Florida, while it rains and is very cold in Germany so that was a very pleasant adjustment.

KISS: You have gone from celebrity gym trainer to, video and magazine model to now actress all in a short time. What are some secrets to your growing success?

Metisha: I can just put it all in one sentence “LIVE YOUR DREAM” never doubt yourself always stay focused and always get up no matter how many times you fall.

KISS: Describe life back home growing up, family, friends, social life, things you miss?

Metisha: Well my life in Germany was very settled. My main focus in Germany was to finish university…and in my free time i was playing basketball. I miss my friends and family, but most of them come visit me quite often here in America.

KISS: What are some of your favorite things about the states, places you love to go to, restaurants, foods, clubs, cities?

Metisha: I definitely love the weather in Florida!!! I love NOBO restaurant, and my favorite cities are New York and Chicago. Both cities are so cultivated I love the vibe and atmosphere of both cities.
