Female Model of the Month for February 2023
Iskra Lawrence is a British model who is now 29 years old. She grew up in Wolverhampton and was involved in swimming and youth theater. Lawrence is known around the United States for her involvement and success modeling for Aerie which is a brand of intimate apparel from American Eagle Outfitters. Her vast experience and notable ability to spread body positivity and inspire girls around the world to be confident in their own skin earned her spots modeling at New York Fashion Week and for L’Oreal. Not only has she been named as a brand ambassador for Marina Rianali’s Persona collection campaign but also for the National Eating Disorders Association.

As a woman, society tells us how we should look, what we should eat, and what we have to mimic to be “beautiful.” Social media consumes our generation and pushes females especially, to look a certain way to gain acceptance. Women like Lawrence defy stereotypes and are the progress we need to make towards a less judgemental world of fashion and modeling.
