Lavender hair, knuckle tattoos and all.

For her latest fragrance, Pop by Stella McCartney, Paul McCartney’s designer daughter picked talent from a slightly younger generation than she typically works with. Over the past week, McCartney revealed the fresh new faces of her fragrance (launching April 7), a list which includes musician Grimes (Claire Boucher), actress Amandla Stenberg and Quincy Jones’ daughter Kenya Kinski-Jones. The last name to be revealed on Friday: Madonna’s eldest, Lourdes Leon.

Considering how much of a natural she appears to be in front of the camera, it’s a bit surprising that this marks the 19-year-old university student’s modeling debut. The campaign for the tuberose and sandalwood scent is definitely lighthearted and girly, but the girls still have a bit of edge. Leon, for example, appears to have knuckle tattoos, and her long locks are dyed a mermaid-worthy shade of lavender.

Leon is also very clearly her mother’s daughter. (And her mother, in fact, is a longtime friend of the designer’s.) In the ads for the fragrance — McCartney’s first in four years — there’s no doubt about the source of Leon's impeccable arches. Her striking brows hark back to Madonna’s early days and surely are being coveted already.
