Iskra Lawrence is not one for typos, especially when they’re in reference to her.

The Independent published an article including photos from her vacation with the headline, “Plus-size model Iskra Lawrence is the picture of body confidence as she hits the beach in Miami.” In the article, she is referred to as a “plus size model” who is “becoming a bastion of body confidence.” While the second half of that sentence is definitely true, Lawrence doesn’t approve of the first half.
Iskra Lawrence is one of the most recognizable faces in the plus-size modeling industry, having worked extensively with retailer Aerie and landed a number of other high-profile campaigns. As a celebrity, she uses her fame to act as a champion for body positivity by advocating for individualism worldwide.
