Iskra Lawrence — international model, Instagram star, and advocate of healthy body self-image — is hosting a documentary series exclusively on Facebook Watch that will explore how people view themselves and how they can change their perspective.
Lawrence’s “The Mirror Challenge,” which comes from digital-media company Defy Media’s women-targeted Clevver brand, will follow people of all shapes and sizes as they bare it all, in some cases literally, on a journey to embrace who they are inside and out. She’s host, co-creator and producer the series.
The five-episode series will premiere on Facebook Watch on Tuesday, June 5, with new episodes rolling out each following week. Each episode — running around 15 minutes — highlights one person’s story and path to self-discovery with the help of Lawrence and her “mirror challenge” techniques. It will be available exclusive on Facebook for a six-month window.
In addition, Defy in August plans to debut “What Your (Blank) Tells Her” on Facebook Watch. From the company’s Smosh comedy brand, the show is hosted by Melanie Iglesias (MTV’s “Girl Code”), in which the actor-comedian-writer-musician-influencer will join the Smosh cast and celebrity guests as they decipher the unspoken language guys send to women through what they do, wear, eat and put out on social media.
Iskra is currently in Cannes, France for the Cannes Film Festival. She was spotted today, May 13th 2018, while out & about in Cannes. She was also pictured at Nice Airport in Nice yesterday, May 12th 2018.
Iskra is a new ambassador of The Prince’s Trust & L’Oréal Paris.
L’Oreal Paris has always believed that everyone is worth it, whoever you are, wherever you’re from.
Since February 2017, with ambassadors, employees and The Prince’s Trust we’re helping young people through the “All Worth It” training programme, online and in all Prince’s Trust centres. Helping to transform self-doubt into self-worth for 10,000 young people across the UK.
Here’s why they picked Iskra:
When dropped from her modelling agency for the size of her hips at the age of 16, Iskra’s self-esteem took a huge knock leading to her battling with eating disorders and body dysmorphia. Iskra made the decision to stop trying to conform to somebody else’s beauty ideals and learnt that there is so much more to life than worrying about your insecurities.
