Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon is officially a NYFW model

Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon made her New York Fashion Week debut in a body-baring outfit.

Walking for Gypsy Sport in the Big Apple on Tuesday (11Sep18), 21-year-old Lourdes donned a beaded, shell adorned, body-chain bra and ripped flared jeans. The look was finished with chunky white sneakers, a headpiece made from bright green leaves and sunglasses.

The presentation started with a moment of silence and contemplation in honour of the victims of 9/11, and was followed by a parade of FernGully fairy children, reports Vogue Australia, which described designer Rio Uribe’s new line as “Mother Earth–meets–urban goddess clothes”.


It marked the first time Madonna’s eldest child, who Uribe revealed reached out to him to ask if she could appear in the show, has walked the runway in the Big Apple, though she’s not totally new to modelling; she posed for a Converse x MadeMe campaign earlier this year, a standalone MadeMe advert and a Stella McCartney perfume ad.

She also knows a thing or two about design, after starting label Material Girl with her famous mum in 2010, when she was just 13 years old.

In a promo clip for Stella McCartney’s Pop fragrance in 2016, Lourdes, whose father is actor Carlos Leon, hailed her superstar mom as her style icon.

“My mom has helped me so much,” she explained. “She has great style and she’s an amazing dresser.”
