Madonna's Daughter Lourdes Makes Modeling Debut for Stella McCartney
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.
So happy to have Lola on the POP team! Lola, who I’ve known her entire life, is at the beginning of her career as a performing artist. She’s an independent, inspirational and free-spirited young woman. Despite being born in the spotlight, she has kept her feet firmly on the ground! X Stella #POPNOW #LolaLeon
