Iskra Lawrence slips her hourglass curves in Women of the Year Awards

She’s an active body confident advocate, passionate about getting the modelling industry to represent women of a all size. And Iskra Lawrence certainly made the most of her enviable curves as she attended the Glamour 2017 Women of The Year Awards in Brooklyn, New York, on Monday.

The British-born model, 27, accentuated her hour-glass physique in a vibrant optical illusion dress, posing up a storm for cameras.

Iskra has always been passionate about body confidence, refusing to label herself a plus size model and previously protesting against the lack of diversity during London Fashion Week.

It is no wonder the blonde has bagged many high-profile invites, after forging a successful modelling career, with the aim to change the industry’s perceptions on beauty and size.

A passionate advocate for body confidence, she recently spoke out about unattainable beauty standards in the fashion world in an interview earlier this week.

‘The whole concept of Photoshop is an illusion,’ she said. ‘They’re not flaws. They’re part of your body. We were just convinced by society and the media that there was something wrong with them.’

She also described how she realised at 18 that instead of trying to change her size 14 body to fit into sample sizes, she ‘would try to change the industry’.

In recent years she has become known for her empowerment movement, and often shares inspiring images and quotes about body confidence on her Instagram page.

A recent Instagram post reads: ‘Hey body parts, I know in the past we didn’t understand or love each other but please forgive me.

‘I was brainwashed by societal ideals and expectations of perfection.

‘When I looked at you all I saw was the imperfections I had been taught to see, using descriptors of shame and hate because that’s what I read and heard other women say to themselves.’
