Another day, another reason to obsess over Iskra Lawrence and her killer curves! On Friday, September 27, the 29-year-old British model took to Instagram to show off her body in a faux snakeskin jacket and well, not much else — ahem, nude underwear and a bra.
While the majority of her caption was promoting the trendy clothing item, Iskra did use the hashtag “sorry, dad” which obviously made us LOL. Good one, girl.
Unsurprisingly, her 4.5 million followers couldn’t help but gush over Iskra’s cheeky (literally!) post. “Inspiration!! Keep it up, beautiful,” one user commented. “You’re an angel!” added another. “Such a baddie,” a third user chimed in, while a fourth echoed, “Literally perfect.”
Perhaps our favorite comment, though, was, “Thank you for giving me confidence in my own body shape!!!” After all, Iskra’s mission on social media is to be her most authentic self with fans and clearly, they appreciate it!
“For me, to just be able to be real, it’s just a very healthier, balanced way to live,” Iskra told Life & Style in April of her approach toward social media. “I feel like I needed it for myself in the sense that holding myself to a perfect ideal every single day on social media, it would be so draining and tiring and not good for my mental health as someone who has been through an eating disorder.”
Beyond avoiding triggers, Iskra believes that being true herself is also a responsibility to her fans. “When I meet people, they don’t have these unrealistic expectations of me,” she explained. “They already have seen the real me, so that for me, is a weight off of my shoulders.”
Sounds like a win-win situation! That said, Iskra did admit that on occasion, she still feels pressure to look a certain way. “I still think that there is a part of you that still struggles — even as real as you can be — you still want to put the picture with the best lighting and with the cutest background, and I think you will never get away from that, and you have to just be aware of that online,” Iskra said.
“There is also nothing wrong with that and again, as long as you are honest about it.”
