Iskra Lawrence: “No one else has the right to tell you what to do with your body”

On not caring about what her critics have to say:

I stopped caring what people think a long time ago. I think it’s the best thing that came out of getting into modelling at such a young age, going to castings and being criticised. It gave me such a thick skin that now I’m like, “You know what? I don’t care what people think.”

On whether she lost weight since becoming famous:

I’ve been reading a few of your comments saying I’ve lost weight & need to stop working out erm no. First off our bodies are allowed to fluctuate its natural, and also no one else has the right to tell you what to do with your body. That’s why it’s called yours. I love posting pics celebrating this body I have & I love seeing communities online where woman & men feel free to share their pics & are doing it because THEY want to.

On how she became a successful model:

People see the finished product but don’t know the 13-year struggle behind it. They don’t know what I went through, that I had to think outside the box, how I used social media to grow, how I networked, how I’ve spoken at different places. I’ve even spoken at Harvard! The more you try to be like someone else, the less successful you’re going to be,’ she said. ‘You need to be different. That’s what’s going to make you stand out.

you’ve spoken at Harvard? like……in the hallways? …..with the janitor? talked about what? you said the same 4 sentences “you need to love yourself” “i hope to inspire” “posing half naked is so empowering”?

I don’t know about Harvard but I really liked her ted talk. You can google and watch it if you’re interested. I do think it is important to talk about body image even if it is a first world problem. I think you should inform yourself before voicing such a negative opinion.

every “body image” talk is absolutely the same: different people saying “you should love yourself for who you are” in different ways YET they all get surgery (someone here in a comment said this woman got a butt lift), they all retouch their instagram pics etc etc.

Love everything about your comment gee 🙂 Iskra: “I’ve got into Harvard!” “What did you do, open the door?”

I don’t think these quotes are meaningful but I appreciate her beauty.

How does she stand out? I didn’t even know about her. Just saw her on this site a couple months ago. She’s bland Imo. And those quotes sound so cheesy and repetitive.

She got a BBL so she could be famous, that’s how little she cares about what other people think. If you look at her old photos, it’s really obvious. It’s funny, given how strongly she feels about Photoshop etc.

What’s BBL?

Brazilian Butt Lift, it’s the same procedure the Kardashians use. Basically, the surgeon uses your own fat to inject it back into the areas where you want more volume. She probably had it transfered from her stomach area to her hips and butt to achieve the shape she now has.

I like her body a lot and there are worse body confidence idols out there for sure – but her face just isn’t modelesque. I kinda want them to put her in different makeup, but at the same time I appreciate that they’re not trying to contour the sh*t out of her face or photoshop it.
