Iskra finally has a StyleLikeU video out! Aaaannnd…it’s incredible.
She opens up about high school, how she walked through those intimidating halls, totally judged, trying as hard as burnt brownies to exude fake confidence (hello, self).
And then she talks about how she turned into the real-human-sized and totally lit mode, we know today.
P.S. So we’re not going to bore you with a literal transcription of the actual video like…erm…some sites do. Just watch it yourself (trust me, you NEED to watch it):
And…if you scrolled down for some background deets, here they are (there’s some Insta pics below):
The Low Down: Remember when that Aerie Real undie campaign came out and NONE of their models’ pics where photoshopped (ahwsummmm amarite?!)? Iskra Lawence was one of those oh-so-sassy models who totally slayed it.
✨?new for @aerie in one of my fave bralettes ? someone asked me what does it feel like to not be retouched – “for years I was retouched where I could hardly recognise myself. Limbs where slimmed giving me complexes that there was something wrong with me. When cellulite spots scars moles even freckles are retouched it makes you believe that they are imperfections and you should not have them. You end up comparing yourself to this flawless image of yourself that you can’t even relate to yet anyone else! So to finally model for a brand that doesn’t retouch anything finally makes me feel good enough. And that’s the best feeling”? ✨ #iskralawrence #everyBODYisbeautiful
