How well do you think you know Larrisha Renee?

How did you start modeling?
I always wanted to model since I was little, but never really pursued it. I just decided to go to a casting for a local fashion show and was picked. I invited my friends and family to come see me in the show and one of my family members introduced me to my future manager. And that was it, pursuing a modeling career was it for me and it was all I wanted to do from that moment.

What other models do you admire?
I admire Bria Myles. I think she’s so gorgeous and her body is amazing but she’s also very versatile. She doesn’t allow herself to get stuck in one category and pushes beyond what others think of her. The result is girls taking over the world.

What are your favorite clothing lines and who would you kill to work for?
My favorite clothing lines right now is the Matte Brand and the Lyirna Label . I love how their clothes fit m e and working on campaigns with them would be amazing.

What do you need during a photoshoot?
I definitely need wine and trap music lol . I feel like wine puts me in a good mood makes me feel really sexy during the shoot and the music just keeps me in the zone. There’s something about the music that just keeps me going and allows me to focus.

Who is your favorite artist?
Bryson Tiller. I absolutely love his music. When I listen to his music It feels like he’s singing to me and only me.

What artists would you work with and what would be the project?
I want to work with The Weeknd His visuals for his videos are like movies and he’s so creative and different I would definitely want to be apart of any project that he does, he’s amazing.

Tell us what you’ve got going on besides being a professional model?
I have a lip gloss line called KISSHER dropping soon with all different types of vibrant and nude colors. I am all about vibrant colors and a great “lippie” is a girl’s best friend. I wanted to share that passion with others. My team and I have spent lots of time putting together the first palettes designed to be every girl’s ‘go-to’ colors for the spring and summer.

Tell us a little bit more about your upbringing? Did you grow up with a large family?
I had a very good upbringing I lived with my mom and dad and two brothers. What can I say, I’m a daddy’s girl so I was ‘ kinda ‘ spoiled. But not as much as you might think. They made me work for what I wanted and I’m convinced that that is what has conditioned me to be so determined and focused. I’m an extremely independent woman and ridiculously persistent
.
What do you do in your free time?
I like to spend my time with my nephews, I have four of them and they are my world. I’m very family oriented. But when I don’t have them I spend my time at t he TRAC SHOP studio in New Haven. Besides modeling being around music is like breathing, totally gives me life. So I hang with my big brother and add my ‘two cents’ to some of the music that’s produced.

What’s your favorite city to visit?
New York is my favorite city. I spend a lot of time there mostly in the summers and being there I’ve learned a lot about the modeling Industry so I can say New York molded me in a way.

You’ve got a lot going on. How’s your personal life?
My personal life is non-existent at the moment. I’ve had bad situations that I’m just over and I’m just focusing on my work but I would like to have one, just has to be the right guy.

What turns you on about a man?
Appearance is the major key. Appearance is everything to me you have to look and dress clean and your mind has to be just as bomb. He’s gotta be able to keep my attention. I work a lot and the right guy would be able to respect my hustle.

Since you’re single, tell us the best way for a guy to get your attention?
Pretty boys are my weakness. You have to be different with the way you approach me. H ow he carries himself is important, I don’t want an easy dude I want the one that’s hard to get because that’s what excites me I like the challenge. If every girl can have him, I won’t even entertain him. This is probably why I stay single, I’m very hard to please.

Tell us about your support team?
My support team is amazing they are really there for me every step of the way especially my manager she works night and day to make sure things are perfect for me. W e have a great bond we are a family and we make sure that no matter what we are always going to look out for one another.

My parents are also super supportive. They chime in always at the perfect time to encourage me to keep going especially when things get so busy.
