Iskra Lawrence on Her Struggles as a Model: 'I Felt Like Sample Size Was Right, and My Body Was Wrong'

Written by  Kaitlyn Frey

It’s become pretty common knowledge that celebrities and models gracing the covers of magazines, fashion spreads, advertising campaigns and even their own Instagram posts are often Photoshopped and retouched to perfection. That’s why former model Sarah Dubbeldam — who’s starred in campaigns for Target, InStyle and Budweiser — decided it was time to make a change and launched DARLING Magazine, the first (and only!) women’s magazine that refuses to retouch women’s skin or bodies.

Now, Dubbeldam’s Darling Media, in association with Aerie, proudly presents “self(i.e.),” a feature-length documentary about the search for self-esteem in a retouched world. Featuring over 80 interviews with influential women from age 8 to 80, the film explores the history and impact of retouching, as well as the dangers of its unchecked use in social media. As the number of eating disorders, mental health diagnoses, and body image issues skyrocket, “self(i.e.)” will present a hopeful alternative to impossible fake standards; one found only by rising up together to celebrate our real beauty.

The series launched Wednesday featuring Dubbeldam and model Iskra Lawrence, an #AerieREAL ambassador, who both discuss the pressure of reaching perfection.

“I felt like the sample size was right, and my body was wrong,” Lawrence shares.
