2010 has proven that the under-15 set can be just as fashion forward (and influential) as their older counterparts. Kids also happen to be really, really cute. We love when they walk in fashion shows, and we’re jealous when their parents buy them designer duds. (But we hate when they act like insufferable brats.)
Normally, we don’t pay that much attention to Taylor Momsen‘s attitude — despite her distaste for clothing that covers the lower half of her body, we can relate: we were all 17 once. But Momsen looked so downright miserable at last night’s launch of Macy’s Material Girl line that it actually gave us pause.
As part of the launch of Madonna’s new line Material Girl for Macy’s, daughter Lourdes Leon has been blogging up a storm on the brand’s website. At times insightful, at times hilarious, and at times somewhat illiterate, the posts prove that Lourdes is what we’d always suspected: a natural blogger.
Growing up with a mother who goes by the name of Madonna is no easy feat. Talk about living in someone’s shadow. But Lourdes Leon, Madonna’s first child, has never seemed to have a problem standing out on her own. And like her mother, fashion has always been the way by which the 13-year-old asserts her individuality.
Unlike a certain Cruise, celeb-heir Lourdes Leon has managed to keep a pretty low profile. But now that Madonna‘s eldest is all of 13 and has a clothing line to promote, it seems mom is finally letting little Lola loose.
Remember the good old days when being a kid meant playing in the dirt and swinging on the swings — when your parents thought you were a prodigy when you rolled a ball of Playdough into something resembling a three-legged dog and you thought all things stylish were purchased at the Limited Too? Well, childhood it ain’t what it used to be it seems like everyday there’s a new pre-pubescent prodigy making us twenty-something adults look like complete slackers. Curious as to who was going to be stealing our jobs before they’re legal, we did a little digging and unearthed a few youth quakers who seem bent on shaking things up.
We’ve got to believe it hasn’t been easy growing up with the Material Girl as a mom: the semi-embarassing girl-on-girl make out sessions, occasional African custody battles — not to mention the relentless entourage of paparazzi. But somehow Lourdes Leon seems to have turned out pretty normal and, we might add, stylish beyond her years. So the opportunity to work on a Junior’s line for Macy’s seems like an almost natural next step.
