Let’s start from the fact that stopping traffic on the welcome red carpet of an event of such a level as the Met Gala is not an easy thing and that Lourdes ‘Lola’ León, Madonna’s first-born and Cuban-born actor Carlos Leon achieved it in his first appearance at the event, which was held in September, shows that the girl of yore is already a celebrity and an impressive adult figure.
Was it because of her glamorous Jeremy Scott for Moschino outfit in Magenta with rhinestones, inspired by the timeless style created by Cher in the ’70s? No! The reason why Lourdes caused a sensation was by showing, without shame, the hair from her armpits.
The fact that it was shown like this was interpreted as a direct challenge to the patriarchy that for years has dictated the statutes of conventional beauty in women and denotes a feminist and libertarian attitude on the part of the model and influencer who just turned 25 years old.
And of course, what is inherited is not stolen: ‘Lola’ —as she has been nicknamed from practically the day she was born, one wonders why the hell Madonna Veronica Louise Ciccone did not give her that nickname from the first moment and she stopped being cute – she is, by her own merit, a force of nature and not everyone can be compared to her … and I’m not saying this because this is necessarily because of being her mother’s daughter.
It is true, then, that Lola (that is how we will refer to her from now on, because hey, it is very confusing for me to go around changing her name in the middle of a sentence) had a certain privilege to be able to open the doors of the world of fashion – Come on, for the Versace house to consider you for a Spring-Summer collection show, that your mum is intimate with Donatella helps a lot — her unique style and individualistic personality have given her her own path.
Another proof of this was her recent photo shoot for the cover of Paper magazine – of the fashion magazines she is probably the most avant-garde and leaves the Vogue edited by Anna “El Diablo” Wintour as a pasquincillo for grannies with a pearl around her neck. —In which he broke the mold of his image and became a trending topic that lasted for days. The outlet called her an iconic figure and boy, yes, in her own way, she is.
“For me, my values are that you can be the least or the most sexual you want. I will never judge a person for that. I think that is something that people have not realized yet, of sexual autonomy. No I judge other women that way, so I don’t apply those rules to myself, “she said in an interview for Paper, adding:” I feel there is so much lack of personal style, like a real style that has nothing to do with women. trends or TikTok. Because when there’s something out there, everyone wears it. Or everything that’s trendy, but in vogue for the masses. Because of TikTok and the trends on social media, there are so many different iterations of the same jacket or jacket. the same … It’s as if everything was copied by everyone, I mean? “
Lola is more unique: raised as a dancer (just like her holy mother), she has a college degree, and is more cultured and open than average. Although she currently has an account on Instagram, it took many years to decide to open it since people criticize her a lot for being the daughter of one of the most famous and controversial singers of all time, and that, you know, is part of the territory, but he has always sought to be his own person.
“I have a complicated relationship with (social networks) because many times the algorithm manages to make me feel bad about myself if only people who see themselves in a certain way or live a certain lifestyle appear, and compare me with those people. That it’s not healthy for anyone, “he said. “Maybe one day I’ll close it [su cuenta de IG], but as long as it is useful to me, I will keep it. “
It is unpredictable to know what Lola’s next step will be, but one thing is certain: wherever she goes, her walk will be original and will not adhere to the rules, exactly as it has happened before with her mother, who is a woman who it has always refused to conform to convention.
