LOURDES LEON TALKS ABOUT FASHION AND HER SUPERSTAR MOM

Posted in Lourdes Leon on August 10, 2011 by fadedblog

Lourdes Leon is opening up about the growing pains she experienced when she first launched the Material Girl brand.

“It was really hard at first because I didn’t know what I was doing,” the 14-year-old told the AP in a recent interview. “I was like, ‘You know, not a lot of people wear this. Let me just wear it.’ It wasn’t even that it looked good on me. I was just like, ‘Let me do this because not a lot of people are doing it.’ Now I feel like I can follow fashion a lot better than I used to, but also have some of my own take on it.”

A few more highlights from Lola’s interview, including her vision for Material Girl, her mom and fashion dos and don’ts.

AP: It’s been a year since your clothing line launched. What have you learned about fashion over the past 12 months?

Lola: I learned a lot of things that I shouldn’t wear or do. Like don’t wear white to school, because then stuff gets dirty really fast. I don’t think you should wear shorts that are too small and I don’t think you should wear shorts that are too big either because I find myself looking really awkward. It takes me a really long time to find the perfect pair of shorts. I like the ones you can pull up to your bellybutton almost, which makes it look extra weird and retro.

AP: Your mom once told me that the two of you don’t always agree on designs.

Lola: Absolutely. Every day. … I will be like, “Mom, you can’t wear that.” Or she will be like, “Lola, you can’t wear that.” A lot of the time we don’t listen to each other, but sometimes we do.

AP: When it comes to designing Material Girl, who wins out?

Lola: Me. I have to tell her, “Mom, it is the in thing. This is what kids are doing now. If you don’t do this, then it is going to suck.” And then she usually gives in.

AP: Do you go to your mom’s closet for inspiration?

Lola: Her closet is huge. All the time. I am always in there and if no one knows where I am in the house, it is usually my mom’s closet and I am usually taking something without asking her. She gets mad at me.

AP: How does it feel to have a clothing line at such a young age?

Lola: It is really cool, and also it is a lot of fun to know that my friends enjoy it, and to know that a lot of people enjoy it because it is also a lot of what I like. My friends have great style. I go to an arts school, so a lot of them are really artistic and passionate about a lot of things that inspire what they wear.

AP: Advice time. What is your idea of a fashion faux pas?

Lola: Don’t wear white. I am all for crop tops, but I don’t like it when people wear crop tops that are excessively cropped. Really, don’t be a skank with your crop top. I think boots are always a “go-to,” no matter what you are wearing, but you always have to make sure they don’t cut off your leg because that is not right. When you are wearing heels, it is more comfortable to walk in platforms. Platforms always look good and they are more comfortable to wear and they make you look way taller. I used to do this a lot, but the hippie bands around your head are very out. Don’t ever wear that again.

AP: Your line has expanded to include nail polish and undergarments. What is your ultimate vision for the collection?

Lola: I think it has continued to evolve and now it is at a point where we have so much stuff that I use and that I think other people will really enjoy using, so I like it.

LOURDES LEON’S LOW ENERGY EXIT

Posted in Lourdes Leon on November 23, 2010 by fadedblog

Lourdes Leon was spotted leaving her school in New York City on Monday (November 22) while texting on her phone.

The 14-year-old daughter of Madonna looked exhausted as she continued balancing her daytime gig as a grade 8 student and moonlighting role as an up-and-coming fashion designer.

Meanwhile, Dancing with the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba claims Madonna kissed her during a crazy after-show party at the end of her 1993 world tour.

“She came and she sat right here,” she says, pointing at her lap. “I was like ‘Okay, I love Madonna. Hi.'”

The 42-year-old former dancer reminisced about her time as a backing dancer on Madonna’s 1993 ‘Girlie Show’ world tour during an appearance on George Lopez‘s late night talkshow.

Carrie Ann also mentioned how Madge first took her by surprise by kissing her in the middle of one of her concerts.

“We had this moment on stage where there was this huge orgy,” she explained. “Suddenly Madonna’s coming to kiss me and I’m like ‘Oh my god, Madonna’s going to kiss me.’ We kissed – it was very nice. We had this amazing kiss on stage. At the very end of the tour we played truth or dare. I don’t remember what happened, but when somebody dared Madonna she came by.”

Although Madonna failed to ask permission for a kiss, Miss Inaba met her gaze and the pair puckered up.

MADONNA AND HER KIDS FLY BY PRIVATE JET

That’s a wrap!

After spending the weekend filming her latest movie, Madonna was seen boarding a flight on a private jet in Le Bourget, France today (August 2) bound for London.

The 51-year-old singer-turned-director was joined by her brood of four children, Lourdes Leon, Rocco Richie, David Banda and Mercy James, as she prepared for an early morning flight back home.

Meanwhile, the Material Girl says that she immediately started writing her new movie W.E. after directing her first movie, 2008’s Filth and Wisdom.

“It’s been kind of an obsession of mine,” she tells Vogue magazine. “It was actually an idea I had before that, but I made Filth and Wisdom because I realized that I didn’t really have a right to make a bigger film until I made a smaller film — and learned how to make a film.”

WHILE MADONNA IS AWAY, THE KIDS WILL PLAY

While mom Madonna was hard at work on her new film in Paris, France today (August 1) her kids Mercy James, Mercy James, David Banda, Lourdes Leon and Rocco Ritchie enjoy themselves at the Tuileries.

Joined by some friends and nannies, the fashionable foursome could be seen enjoying a slew of different rides and games before snacking on some pink cotton candy.

Still sporting her braces, 13-year-old Lourdes proved to be the rebelious fashionista her mom was so many years ago as she donned some funky eyewear and a wristband with a marijuana leaf emblazoned on it.

Madonna is currently filming her latest film, W.E.

The 51-year-old singer made her directorial debut in 2008 with Filth and Wisdom, about a Ukrainian cross-dressing punk-rocker.
