VIDEO: Madonna Dishes on Blogger Daughter Lourdes' Material Girl Style

06/30/2010 at 12:40 PM ET

Ask Madonna for fashion advice, and she just might refer you to her 13-year-old, Lourdes Leon (aka “Lola”), who, according to her mother, is “much more fashion-forward and savvy than I am at this point.” Now the teenager and fashion-lover is sharing her natural style acumen as a blogger, posting her first musings yesterday on, the site for the juniors clothing line that the mother-daughter duo are designing together. “I am totally obsessivo about 80’s shorts,” writes Lola. “You know the kind that makes your butt look kinda big, with a grunge-looking shirt tucked in.” And the tweenager has certainly put her stamp on Material Girl’s debut collection, which includes ’80s-inspired pieces like a sleeveless biker vest, plaid shirts, floral miniskirts, and high-waist shorts–all meant to be layered and mixed together. To read Lola’s blog and for more on the Material Girl Collection–which launches August 3 exclusively at Macy’s–visit Tell us: What do you think of Lourdes Leon’s new blog? –Marissa Patlingrao Cooley

Every child is special in his/her own unique way. Lola is probably a very special girl. She is definitely special to her mama, big star or not! As a parent your work is to uphold your own kid’s spirit. Can you blame Madonna for doing just that? Saying spiteful things about someone else’s fortune only degrades your own children and you… it separates you and your kids from success instantly. Do you really care to do that? My guess and my hope is that you love your kids. While Lola may have an amazing style, you may want to focus on your own kid and celebrate his/her own style, talents, their unique being. Throw your TV out of the window while you are at it! No kid should be stripped of love and appreciation. It doesn’t matter whether your mama is a celebrity or not! :-)

Esme – Orientated is in the Webster’s dictionary, an alternate of oriented. So not nice to call someone a fool!

I agree with several comments, there is nothing extra special about Lola other than her mother is Madonna and she has been afforded the luxury and opportunity to move forward with her fashion. I think most 13 year olds love to draw and come up with their own fashion styles and fashion sense, however, not all 13 year old have millions behind them in their mother’s name… no jealousy or hating involved.. just the truth, it’s as simple as that, she was born with a golden spoon in her mouth and will become rich from that and that alone.

Now we have to endure that little brat, obviosely her mother will push her career as much as she can.

Esme,you are the fool. Before you criticize, you should check to see if orientated is in the dictionary…which it is. Orientated is the preferred word in general British parlance (uh…that means speech). Oriented is prevalent in technical use, and in the US. What a dweeb!

you go girl!!!! there is nothing wrong with a 13 yr old having a blog about fashion…as madonna said herself her daughter is more fashion oriented than her….so all you adults handing out negativity, GET OVER YOURSELVES….all girls need to make their own clothes is a sewing machine and material….and trust me those don’t cost a lot

Lori on

Jessica, it is not about the cost of material or a sewing machine (which I assure you some people still can’t afford) but the fact that her little blog is being pushed by people magazine and she has been afforded the oppurtunity to go to many prestigious events and meet many prestigious people.
Also, in the sense that she is not special, she is no child prodigy in the fashion world, she is an ordainary girl dressing however she wants to dress. Which most 13 year olds do. I’m sure a lit of them have blogs too. So yes, in my eyes, she is not special.

Give the kid a break. You can’t pick your parents but having one who is loaded doesn’t hurt if you want to design clothes or anything else. remember Madonna didn’t have anything before she started working hard so she’s done what anyone who has a dream and determination,she went out there and EARNED it. So a little slack here people.

Esme on

Nope. Lori’s use of ‘orientated’ is WRONG. It’s not a verb or an adverb and to use it that way is incorrect. Go back to your dictionary, Lisa, and read the WHOLE ENTRY. You and Lori can incorrectly use ‘orientated’ to your heart’s content. Enjoy.

Madonna’s support of Lola’s creative talent is amazing!Lola’s passion for fashion is great..She is an inspiration for all teenage girls who share her flair for style and fashion. I wish her much success and happiness doing what she loves..
