Lourdes Leon is one of a kind.
Madonna’s eldest daughter, who goes by the nickname Lola, is a breakout star in the fashion industry. In addition to modeling for Swarovski, Marc Jacobs and Savage X Fenty, she recently graced the cover of Vogue and made her Met Gala debut.
But the 25-year-old dancer/choreographer isn’t looking to follow the pack when it comes to her look.
“I feel like there’s such a lack of personal style, like actual style that doesn’t have to do with trends or TikTok. Cause when something’s in, everybody is wearing it. Or everybody that’s trendy, but trendy for the masses,” she told Paper Magazine.
“Because of TikTok and trends on social media, there’s so many different iterations of the same jacket or the same … It’s like everything is copied by everyone.”
One particular trend Leon would never wear?
“I can’t get into the casualizing, or the casualization, of the blazer. The oversized blazer. Cause I’m not a blazer girl,” she said, citing Hailey Baldwin as a lover of the look.
Leon totally transformed for her Paper photoshoot, sporting heavily frosted makeup and blond hair with chunky highlights as well as a fiery red wig with blunt bangs. She also stripped down to model sexy scarf-top bikinis, furry boots, micro-miniskirts and a dress with a completely open, strappy back.
And the star’s quick to defend her signature sultry style against social media critics.
“I think it’s a bit ridiculous that people are still living in this world where we’re equating showing skin with wanting attention or being a hoe. Literally, like let a bitch. Let her wear what she wants,” she said.
Leon has other reasons to avoid Instagram, too.
“I have a complicated relationship with [social media] because a lot of times it makes me feel s—tty about myself if this algorithm has made it so I’m only seeing people that look a certain way or live a certain lifestyle, and then I’m going to compare myself to those people. That’s not healthy for anyone,” she said, adding that her own account is more lighthearted than self-serious — taking a page out of mom Madonna’s book, who often posts scantily clad photoshoots.
“I have a base layer of hatred because so many people like to hate on my mom, so it’s obviously like I’m the spawn, I’m the oldest daughter, I’m going to see the tail end of that hate. So anything I do negative, it’s ‘Like mother, like daughter.’” Leon said.
“Y’all are so unoriginal.”
