Iskra Lawrence Shows How Deceiving Modeling Poses Can Be On Instagram

Warning: Objects may appear smaller than they seem. At least, that’s what Iskra Lawrence wants the world to know. On Monday, the model took to Instagram to show her followers seven different poses that can considerably change the way your body appears in photographs. “I wanted to get super real and show you how dramatically and instantly people can change how they look simply by posing,” she wrote in the name of self-care. “[Leave the] good lighting, high quality cameras, and photoshop [alone]!”

Let alone good lighting, high quality cameras and photoshop! I've talked about this a lot in the past but in this video I show you 7 ways in which posing can dramatically change how we look. I'm super excited to share this with you, I myself still pose and there's nothing wrong with moving your body in ways you feel most comfortable or confident but let's be honest and show the actual process. I've been modelling 14years so I learnt some stuff I want to share with you all. Because life's not perfect, social media lives aren't Perfect and neither are us or our bodies. And that's exactly how it's meant to be! Because we are all imperfectly perfect and 100% unique. So s/o to all the real ones who keep it 💯 celebrate every single inch of pinkcandyfloss you and who you are!

The post teases a video created in partnership with Elle and Fashion For You aimed to fight back against the misconceptions and unrealistic body standards perpetuated by social media. In the almost seven-minute long clip, Lawrence shows off the poses she’s learned during her 14-year career as a model. “I'm super excited to share this with you, I myself still pose and there's nothing wrong with moving your body in ways you feel most comfortable or confident but let's be honest and show the actual process,” she added.
In the YouTube video, Lawrence reminds viewers to be “super aware when you look at perfected images what actually goes on behind the scenes,” saying “not everything is real, but you are.” As she said on Instagram, “life's not perfect, social media lives aren't perfect and neither are us or our bodies. And that's exactly how it's meant to be” — because, it’s your choice whether or not to add a filter.
