Size 12 Model Iskra Lawrence: “So you don’t think I’m good enough unretouched?”

Size 12 US model Iskra Lawrence stars in Aerie’s latest campaign, where beauties of different sizes are unedited – and recently, the blonde model opened up about a past experience that destroyed her confidence:

‘I tested with a photographer about a year ago and loved the pictures at the shoot. He sent me the pictures two weeks after and he retouched the hell out of them. I said to him, “I don’t feel like I can use these. Can you send me the raw files?” and he was like, “No, I’m not comfortable with that, and I was kinda of like, “Oh OK, so you don’t think I’m good enough unretouched?” After so many years of being rejected and having my body scrutinized…. for Aerie to come along and basically say, “we accept you, we don’t care about your size.” To see those pictures on a Times Square billboard and they were completely unretouched, I just was like, “Wow. I finally feel good enough!

… says Iskra.

She is super cute and I find it refreshing to see non-retouched (or at less retouched) pictures in ads.

I don’t see what’s so fascinating about her. Her body doesn’t look good to me. Her face is washed and forgettable Imo

She has a lovely figure. We need more models like her. She’s beautiful and healthy. Not everyone looks that good in unretouched pictures.

I like the ad, they all look beautiful in their own rights, also Iskra has beautiful curves, a beautiful face and a cute bubble butt.

Too bad these shots are definitely retouched! They might have used less photoshop than usual, but everything here has been retouched, from light and colors to skin texture. So much for natural beauty

I don’t think these were retouched nearly that much. I’m sure they were shot with the absolutely most flattering possible lighting but the rest of it seems normal (other than possible retouching some of the undies since none of them have a cameltoe – just sayin’)

I think they are retouched to showcase photography skills and setting, but not to lessen her age or weight.

She’s cute. I love her name, it means “spark” in my language.

I still see the pattern here, these girls are calculatedly “different” than, say, Vs models, but this shoot still doesn’t hold true diversity. It’s a thoughtful attempt but still only halfway there. I also don’t think these are just raw pics. I like Iskra but her facial features need a bit more help than super natural makeup.
