Straight from the pages of the Summer Issue of KING, get to know Maria Allure
Armed with a new name but keeping her sultry side intact, the Jamaican beauty (yes, she’s Jamaican) formerly known as Maria Maria definitely makes the following pages more alluring…
The last time you were in KING, you pulled a Jimmy Two-Times and called yourself Maria Maria. Now you return as Maria Allure. Why the change?
MARIA ALLURE: The name change comes from a character I often, coincidentally, become cast as: the alluring woman with mysterious intentions [laughs].
Being alluring is glamorous, charming and engaging—also, by definition, the power to
attract, interest. What more can you ask for in a name?
A B-12 shot, perhaps? But for
those who didn’t pick up that issue (Mar./Apr. ’08) with you in your birthday suit, sitting on a stool, what is your ethnicity?
[Laughs] I’m Jamaican, but I am so mixed.
Getting back to your ethnicity and look, do you mostly get approached by Jamaican men?
Different races approach me. They can never really tell what I am in the beginning. But being that New York is a melting pot, you’re surrounded by different ethnicities all the time out here.
In that case, what type of man piques your interest? Are you looking for a rude bwoi?
I look for qualities like ambitious, confident, caring, funny, educated, street smart, protective and family oriented.
That’s all well and good, but you don’t see that on some random guy when he’s walking down the street.
Physically…whew, don’t we love that word?
If it’s used in the sentence, “I’m not looking for a serious relationship, just something
physically fulfilling,” then yes.
[Laughs] No, but seriously, I like my men tall, lean, built, with an amazing smile! And for what it’s worth, handsome is best. Pretty boys aren’t really my thing.
