Ask the average bloke about Costa Rica and the chances are that names like Paulo Wanchope and Bryan Ruiz will probably feature. Iskra Lawrence may be about to change that.
The curvaceous model and promoter of all things big and beautiful seems to be on a one-woman mission to promote the Central American country as the go-to destination for holidaymakers seeking sun, sea and skimpy outfits.
And the Brit has decided to demonstrate her love for all things Costa Rican in the only way she knows how: though a series of revealing Instagram posts that have proven popular with her online following.
Lawrence is more than just your average good-looking girl though.
Like similar so-called “plus-size” model Ashley Graham, Lawrence is on a quest to change the way people view beauty.
Having grown up as part of a society and media mind-set that possesses a very specific set of criteria for what constitutes feminine beauty, Lawrence is doing her level best to dispel such notions.
From posing alongside enough packets of crisps to leave even Gary Lineker feeling a little overwhelmed to the more back-to-basics photoshoots designed solely to showcase the killer curves that have made Lawrence such a hit, the size 14 model is further proof that bigger is better in 2016.
And with the plus-size revolution showing no signs of slowing down, we are looking forward to seeing more of Lawrence in the coming weeks and months.
As part of her crisp modelling, Lawrence retaliated at Instagram troll Sean Brown who called her fat by telling him: “This is for everyone who’s ever been called fat. Thanks for the inspirational words… Opinions are like arseholes. Everyone’s got one.”
For now though, we are just happy she had a nice time on holiday in Costa Rica and we are pretty sure you guys are too.
