Body positive model Iskra Lawrence treated her 4.5 million Instagram followers to a throwback picture over the weekend. In the snap, she modeled a white wedding gown.
The stunning dress was a strapless design with a sweetheart neckline. The gown was fitted throughout the torso and hips, accentuating Iskra’s figure. It flared out at the bottom in a mermaid style, with flowy white tulle brushing against the floor and extending in a long train that ran the length of the picture frame.
To make the gown the focus of the shot, Iskra kept the rest of her look simple by wearing no accessories. Her makeup consisted of brown eyeshadow, a hint of bronzer, and a soft plum lip color.
Her hair was styled in sleek waves in a hairdo reminiscent of Old Hollywood. The setting was similarly glamorous, consisting of a black wood bar with spirits decorating a shelf behind her.
That said, fans who hoped that the Aerie model might be sharing some details about her own wedding plans might have been disappointed. The only hint that Iskra dropped about her own future was emphasizing that it was her choice when and whom to marry.
However, followers of the blond beauty will no doubt be hoping that she might tie the knot soon with beau Philip Payne, with whom she is expecting her first child.

“You look absolutely beautiful… you’re one in a million Iskra,” gushed one fan, adding one red and two pink hearts.
“Because of this photo, I chose this exact wedding dress for my wedding. You helped me be so confident,” confessed another follower, with both a besotted face emoji and heart symbol.
“ABSOLUTELY STUNNING… THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN,” proclaimed a third admirer, adding a number of heart and star-eyed faces.
“You are such a Queen!” concluded a fourth devotee, along with two yellow hearts.
In characteristic fashion, Iskra also highlighted a worthy cause in her caption — ending child marriage.
Explaining that around one in five women worldwide are married before turning 18, Iskra added that a dollar would be donated for interaction from her followers in honor of International Women’s Day.
The post is just the latest example of a long history of activism from the British beauty. Another one of Iskra’s causes is her commitment to body positivity, especially throughout her pregnancy. In fact, the blond bombshell recently wowed fans by flaunting her baby bump in a mismatched bikini, as was previously covered by The Inquisitr.
