Madonna - Fashion's All in the Family

03/01/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

She’s one of the world’s biggest fashion stars, but the Material Girl hates to shop. It’s true: “I’ve never liked shopping — I don’t like going into a store and going through racks,” Madonna tells the British edition of Elle. “So I’m happy to have girls who do it for me. What’s wrong with me?” But even still, she’s surrounded by fashion-conscious family members. “I like it when my husband wears suits and I tell him that on a regular basis,” Madonna says. Does he listen? “Yes, he does. He’s very obedient in the clothing department!” Her kids are another story. Though daughter Lourdes, 10, is modeling and testing the prototypes for Madonna’s children’s clothing line, a tie-in with her English Roses book series, she has her own outfit of choice. “My daughter is going through a phase of wearing jeans that are so tight she can’t bend her knees in them. I have a go at her and say, ‘Can’t you wear something else? You have a closet full of clothes and you wear the same pants every day. And please wear a belt because I don’t want to see your butt crack when you bend over.’ ” Likewise, her 6-year-old son, Rocco, “never wants to take off his Gap army fatigue pants. They both wear the same thing over and over again.” Guess they learned that from Mom.

I’m surprised that she is telling her daughter to dress better considering what she herself used to wear. I realize she is only 10 but maybe she is just wearing her clothes just like mommy did.

Madonna only know’s how to dress herself and husband. What happened to her kids? Her daughter could use a hair trim and her son is wearing black pants, sneakers and a winter coat…They don’t look like rock star kids!

Let’s remember Fingerless Gloves, leggins and big lacey skirts and bustier Tops. Now 30 yrs later ok 25 She’s english royalty. Thank God my Daughter understands if you can’t bend in them you can’t leave the house in them.

Her husband looks like he has a fencepost sticking up his behind.

I’ve listened to Madonna’s music since I was five. I love her.

Her family is so cute.

Who is Madonna’s real dad? Why is nothing ever said about him? Does she see her real father?

Who is Lourdes real dad? Did she buy him off?

Patty: I think he was her exercise coach at the time. I think she did buy him off though.
