Model Iskra Lawrence came through drippin’ at her first appearance at the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival. She walked the red carpet for the screening of Sink or Swim (Le Grand Bain) during the festival at Palais des Festivals in a custom gown from designer Justin Alexander.
Known for unapologetically being herself — from posting unedited photos on her Instagram with the hashtag #celluLIT to encouraging self-love in others with her body-positive platform everyBODYwithiskra — the model was feeling her look in a video she shared. In a caption thanking the designer, she again touched on body inclusivity, writing, “It’s a shame how some designers still only have sample size gowns for red carpets.”

She also shared the inspiration for her stunning look — Who Framed Roger Rabbit‘s femme fatale, Jessica Rabbit, a cartoon known for her curves and red hair.
Fans were enthusiastic about her lavish look, with all of her posts receiving over 100,000 likes.
“Your new hair color is absolutely awesome! And it fits you soooooo well!!!” wrote one.
Another said, “Jessica Rabbit wishes she looked as amazing as this xx You’re such an inspiration to everyone!”
Recently, the curvy model posed with mother, Wilma, 50, in Aerie’s latest swimwear campaign. Lawrence has long been a star of the intimates brand’s campaigns — all photos for which are unretouched. Although fans have fallen in love with the way that Lawrence has shown her beautiful body, they were just as excited to see where she got it from.
