Yesterday, Iskra Lawrence celebrated her 3.4 million Instagram followers by reposting what she called “the vid that started it all.” In the clip, the model and body positivity activist dances enthusiastically to Yo Gotti’s “Down in the DM” while wearing only a pair of undies and a white crop top.
When she originally posted the video, way back in December 2015, she wrote in the caption, “I encourage silly faces, dancing in your undies & never taking yourself seriously.”
Lawrence’s Instagram followers leave a near-constant stream of comments admiring her physical beauty, but in a recent Cosmopolitan interview, she urged them to focus on feeling good about their own bodies instead. “You can be inspired by how far I’ve come with my body and my career and you can see my journey of self-love. But it’s time for you to accept you and feel beautiful being you.”
With that in mind, you’re welcome to contemplate Lawrence’s many accomplishments as you check out the following images—but if you’re tempted to compliment her body, turn those kind words inward, and tell yourself how hot you are instead. C’mon. It’s what Iskra would want.
