Iskra Lawrence

Iskra

IMAGE: A size 14 model from UK, Iskra Lawrence's advice to women is: 'We are beautiful because we are us and we are so much more than our appearance.
True that, especially when the advice comes from such a stunning model.
In fact, when someone told her that her thighs were too big and she shouldn't wear white jeans as the colour makes things look bigger, she went out and got a pair for herself.
That's the spirit, girl!
