Model Launches Defiant Campaign To Share The Body Love
Iskra Lawrence is gunning for the body shamers. Known for her body positive attitude and plucky responses to haters, the 25-year-old model from Worcestershire, has been busy breaking down beauty boundaries one Instagram at a time.
Just last week she shared a side-by-side photo of herself to demonstrate how easy it is to fake a thigh gap on social media and how utterly ridiculous it is to worry about things like that.
And now she’s turning her attention to a body positive campaign that is all kinds of inspirational. Iskra and her bestie Alex Light, a fashion editor from London, have launched the #HeartNotHate initiative which encourages women to high five other women in the body/beauty stakes. The campaign wants women to snap a picture of their mate, write a compliment about them and upload it to a social media channel with the hashtag #HeartNotHate.✨ no thigh gap or thigh gap who cares. We all think we want different things and we should because we are all different, there's no wrong way just be the healthiest & happiest for you. I'll be the first one to tell you pics are all about good lightening and angles. Always remember social medias not real life never let anyone else's pics make you feel insecure about yourself. If you don't look like her and she doesn't look like you that's how it's meant to be. You are meant to be YOU no one else, your body is your home so love and respect it. When you look after it beautiful things happens ✨ #iskralawrence #everyBODYisbeautiful
✨💕🦄🦄 I'm so excited @alexlight_hello and I have something we'd love to share with you all. ✨I will dedicate all the time and platform I have to try and help improve healthy body image in the media. But really what it boils down to is we need to love ourselves more and each other. 💕It can be tough when bombarded with campaigns saying love yourself, why don't you already? etc...but it's a journey. 💛it won't happen over night and there are still days when I catch myself feeling insecure or down and you have to learn ways to turn those negative thoughts into positive. 💙One way I love doing this is celebrating someone else. 🌸their strength, intelligence, wit, creativity or that they are having a bomb af hair day. 💁When you spread positivity and love you receive it back. 👩❤️👩So this is why I hope you will join @alexlight_hello and I to #HeartNOThate w a friend or tag a friend and tell them what you love about them. 💕Because the world needs less trolls, bullying and self deprecation and more self acceptance and celebration of others. 🙌 why not have your whole squad feeling good and releasing they are special and beautiful because they are them. 🦄 #iskralawrence #everyBODYisbeautiful ps find out what I love about this gf 👆🏼 and all about why we wanted to create this campaign in our Facebook live video for @dailymail 👆🏼link in my bio👆🏼 have to scroll to find it (I didn't know it was live for like the first 5mins😂🙈)
“I’ve been pushing body campaigns a lot but what I haven’t seen much of is celebrating another person, celebrating a friend or a family member who might be struggling or dealing with body issues and needs that kind of pick-me-up,” Iskra told Femail.
✨👀 oh hello there trolls, made a video about you👋🏼head to @therunwayriot 👆🏼link in my bio👆🏼now to watch me talk openly about how I deal with online bullies and my advice to you if you're also getting abuse, haters or trolls👹 it is NOT ok the body shame. ‼️And by ppl commenting on my body saying I'm too this or that to campaign and promote body positivity or the effects of trolling just take a seat. because you are also body shaming me. So let me do me, and you do you. 💯 and for all the incredible 1.9milly of you following and supporting me I've got madddd love for you😚❤️✨ you are my inspiration and I won't stop till we get more diversity and healthy body image in the media 🙌 #iskralawrence #everyBODYisbeautiful wearing all @aerie
