Lourdes Ciccone Leon Reflects On Her Fashion Choices
In her latest blog entry on Material World, the fashion blog for the Material Girl, Lourdes Ciccone Leon, daughter of Madonna and Carlos Leon, writes about her impending high school graduation from LaGuardia High School (aka the Fame school). Yes, little Lola is finally leaving Mama’s nest and heading to college in the fall. How’s that for making you feel ancient? In her entry she reflects on some of the “unfortunate outfits” she wore to school over the years. We’ll let her explain…
“Oh how I wish I could go back in time and urge my 14 year old self NOT to wear black rhinestone studded t-shirts with bloody skulls on them, purchased from really ‘hip’ stores (wtf is hip anyways). I like to reassure myself though, that I had to go through that awkward time of ‘trying stuff out’ to figure out what I liked wearing best. I still don’t think that I have a defined style, maybe because I don’t want to limit myself to what I should wear. Makes me happy knowing that I went to an arts school where any kind of style could fly: It gave me the confidence and the yolo spirit I needed to successfully look like a clown (it’s fine). Despite my unfortunate fashion choices I definitely don’t look back on High School with any bitterness. Even the times when cockroaches crawled out of my locker, or when trying to concentrate during an exam next to a room full of people rehearsing for show choir (ha), or walking up 7 flights of stairs on a Monday, or the lunchroom flash mobs.”
Like most college freshman, Lourdes will also have her successful Material Girl line continue to be sold at Macy’s in the fall.
