It was a night of lace tights, skirts, and mother-daughter bonding for Madonna and daughter Lourdes Leon, 13, as they celebrated the launch of their Material Girl clothing line Wednesday night at Macy’s Herald Square in N.Y.C. Despite being a fashion icon, Madonna was content to take a backseat when it came to choosing the items for the Material Girl girl. “Lola did most of the work. I just kind of hung out in the background and went, ‘That’s nice,’ but she pretty much did all of the work. I was just overseeing it,” she said. But when your mom is Madonna and you’re creating a fashion line for teenage girls, it isn’t always that simple. “There are some definite pieces [inspired by my mom]. The tulle skirt because that’s like her thing—she made that. The necklaces, the gloves, the lace tights, the combat boots…that tough girly thing,” Lourdes told PEOPLE. As for the items in Mom’s closet that she covets most? “All of her shoes are ridiculous! I love to try on her [Christian] Louboutins,” she said. Also on hand for the celebration was Material Girl face Taylor Momsen. “It was such an honor to be chosen by Madonna and Lola. They’re such talented people and I’m just ecstatic,” gushed the Gossip Girl star. The night concluded with the three ladies gathering on the fourth floor of Macy’s, as dancers performed and a DJ spun many of Madonna’s songs. “Lola has been so inspiring and it’s been so great to watch her focus, her determination.” Madonna said. “I’ve achieved many things in my life, but I have to say watching my daughter make her dreams come true and achieve her goals is more exciting than anything I’ve ever done.”–Carlos Greer

Great. So she copies clothes from the 80s just like the ones her mom wore. How … original.

Madonna was happy “watching my daughter make her dreams come true”. Lourdes did not do it on her own. She had the help of Mommy’s money!

Lourdes looks so much like her mom when she was younger. She really is very pretty.

Although Lourdes clearly had mom’s money and influence (and name) to carry her ambition- I don’t blame her in the least. At least she is working on making something of herself and starting a business. That is fantastic.

In a world of Paris Hiltons….. Lourdes seems to have her head on her shoulders, and if she gets help from mom- well, what good mom WOULDN’T help out their child? Kudos to both!

That’s nice to hear!

I think they are so sweet together, and look so much alike! I have to say, people can criticize Lourdes for being too young for this, or overprivileged or whatever, but the fact is she’s following her dreams and she has the fantastic support of her mother. Not every teenage girl can say she has that and I love that they’re doing this together :).
