These are the kind of stories we love reading about. We need more women like the gorgeous British model Iskra Lawrence to empower other women! Yah!
Her amazing figure and equally amazing body-positive image is garnering tons of buzz online.
So what’s so special about her? Well unlike other so-called “Instagram models, Iskra refuses to retouch any of her photos – or even make money off of her posts!
“’Going for a swim in the jungle yesterday,” says the Instagram post below, “no filter and no retouching, because who says cellulite is a flaw—YOU decide what beauty is and it’s deeper than skin deep #iskralawrence #everyBODYisbeautiful.”
💙🌊going for a swim in the jungle yesterday🌴🐳 doing a meet & greet TODAY 6-6.30pm at plaza las Americas mall in Puerto Rico at the Aerie store! 🚫no filter🚫 no retouching, because who says cellulite is a flaw - YOU decide what beauty is and it's deeper than skin deep💚 #iskralawrence #everyBODYisbeautiful
Of course, a move like that will only attract more and more followers for the 24-year-old blond bombshell, who has more than 849,000 Instagram followers and counting, using social media to promote her particular brand of self-assurance and self-acceptance.
✨💕 oh hey there.. Yes this is clearly a booty pic but do you see why? Because I haven't airbrushed my tiger stripe stretch marks 🐯 or my cellulite lightening bolts ⚡️ or my back fat 🌮🍔🍕because this is my body, I love it it's real and I love posting pictures showing how confident I am because society has taught us we have "flaws" and I'm telling you who gives a.. Because you are more than your body and you get to decide what beauty is❤️ #iskralawrence #everyBODYisbeautiful pic by @imruhul tag a friend who's flaws are flawless & are imperfectly perfect 😚💕✨
☀️I hope that as we stand strong together in 2016 we will change societies perception of beauty. From a standard set by others opinions of our outwardly appearance to that of the appreciation of each individual's diversity of mind, spirit unique talents & gifts. My focus this year will remain the same, love harder, give more and be grateful everyday 🙏🏼✨💘 #iskralawrence #everyBODYisbeautiful my personal journey of body image & the media @therunwayriot 👆🏼link in bio👆🏼👙 @aerie 🚫no filter 🚫no retouching
Though Iskra clearly exudes confidence, it wasn’t always the case. According to Runway Riot, the gorgeous star was repeatedly rejected by modelling agencies for being “too big,” but that didn’t deter her from pursuing her dream.
“I realized at around 18 that instead of trying to change my body to fit into sample sizes I would try to change the industry,” she told The Daily Mail. And we think she’ll be doing it – one photo at a time!
✨🌴 Happy New Year all 700,000 of you😚 ILY and thank you for your support...I will keep putting out images that have 🚫no retouching 🚫no filter because It's not up to society or the media to tell you that your so called "flaws" or "imperfections" aren't beautiful - you are all perfectly imperfect because you are you! And no matter if someone calls me fat I can laugh it off because I've learnt to love myself internally not by what others think of me.. I wish you all happiness & health for 2016 😚😚😚💕✨ #iskralawrence #everyBODYisbeautiful wearing @aerie 👙
She was once asked who her celebrity crush was. Would you believe she answered Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel, saying “She’s the boss.”
