Model Iskra Lawrence proudly showed off her cellulite in a side-splitting gown that “lit up” the red carpet.
The size-12 British model attended the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday in Los Angeles wearing a long, black, asymmetrical dress with a waist-high slit that revealed a flash of hip and thigh.
Lawrence, 27, posted photos of the look on Twitter and Instagram on Monday, writing, “Cell-U-lit up the red carpet.”
Lawrence draws attention to her supposed “flaws” like it’s a full-time job. In September, she posted an Instagram tutorial on seven different ways models are posed to appear slimmer. “I wanted to get super real and show u how drastically and instantly ppl can change how they look simply by posing!” she wrote on Instagram about the before-and-after slideshow, a collaboration between Fashion for All and Elle magazine. “Let alone good lighting, high-quality cameras, and Photoshop!”
Over the summer, she posted an Instagram video of herself dancing on a Santa Monica beach with the caption, “Sorry, not sorry … I don’t play. I said I don’t retouch or Photoshop the pics I post of me years ago. And I’m a woman of my word. So you can talk about something else now, pretty sure there’s MUCH more important things to talk about.”
Lawrence continued: “If we stopped picking each other’s bodies apart we wouldn’t have so many body-image issues. And I’ll stay out here feelin’ like a 10 no matter what anyone says.”
The model also expressed approval for photos that aren’t retouched, writing on a photo snapped that day, “Grateful I don’t hate my legs anymore, grateful I see their strength and appreciate my body’s capabilities. Also, I realize I’m highly privileged but damn I love seeing pap pics that aren’t retouched and some of those [tiger] stripes. Because I don’t believe anyone needs retouching — why I don’t ever Photoshop my own pics.”
In addition, Lawrence has strong feelings about the word label “plus-size model.” In December 2017, when the Independent ran the headline “Plus-size model Iskra Lawrence is the picture of body confidence as she hits the beach in Miami,” the model did a quick edit for her Twitter followers, retweeting the headline while omitting the term “plus-size.”
