I am Iskra Lawrence, a British model represented by JAG models in the Americas and Models 1 in Europe. I believe #EveryBODYisBeautiful! I’m a champion of body diversity and self-care, and have long been committed to improving the image of women in the media, having been told that I was both “too big” for straight-size modeling and “not big enough” for plus-modeling. I was honored to be included in the BBC’s World’s 100 Most Influential Women.
As Aerie’s #AerieREAL Role Model I have been included in unretouched intimates, loungewear and swim campaigns and tour universities across the USA to speak with students about body positivism. I am also a brand ambassador for the National Eating Disorders Association, creating the NEDA Inspires Award and working to generate awareness and support for individuals and families affected by eating disorders. I am a guest author to many publications including Time and the Huffington Post, and SELF magazine.
