Remember begging your parents to let you shave your initials into your head, or dye your hair purple, or wear your pajamas to the drug store during the summer? Why not, right? You didn’t have to go to school! You could finally taste glorious freedom! Your parents probably said no, but that’s because they weren’t fashion-forward millionaires with a huge children’s clothes budget. We’ve noticed a lot of celeb kids busting out edgier looks than usual this summer, and as such thought it was time to give a shout-out to the famous children who are leading the sartorial pack. From Willow Smith to Lourdes Leon, Maddox Jolie-Pitt to Julez Knowles, these kids are walking to the park like their walking down the runway. Kingston Rossdale in particular makes us want to reconsider every single one of our outfits. And our glasses. And our hair. And the fact our shoes don’t always have dinosaurs or bugs on them…

Other than her hair color (which we pray she never bleaches into oblivion), Lourdes Leon is growing up to be the spitting image of her mom. Looks aside, whether she’s co-designing their Material Girl and Material Girl Beauty lines or, um, crying outside a Kabbalah Centre, Lourdes has basically become a little Madonna. So is it so surprising she’d want to try on the most iconic look of her madre’s career: the cone bra? Lola tweeted a photo of herself rocking the leather Jean Paul Gautlier bustier her mom has been wearing on her current world tour, explaining, “Lola backstage at MDNA.” Is it wrong we think this is kind of sweet, in a weird way? It’s not like Lourdes got her hands on a copy of Sex, after all. Then Madonna would probably have to go to jail for being a terrible parents.
Unfortunately for Lourdes, the photo and tweet were later yanked off Twitter, which we’re assuming means Madonna’s eldest is struggling to hold back tears in the backseat of a limo right..now. Our heart goes out to her; we would not want to be on the receiving end of Madonna’s mom wrath. Maybe this will make you even more like your mom, Lourdes? We’re sure Madonna was grounded for a million years when she was in high school too.

On The Tonight Show last night, Jay Leno dared to ask Madonna about movie auditions that didn’t do so well for her. This is after she claimed that when casting for W.E., she tried her best to make actors “feel at ease” during their audition process because she knows how much auditioning can suck. Her reaction was the kind of classic Madonna that makes us wonder what director would dare make her not at ease.
“What did you audition for that you sucked at?” Leno asked.
“Oh. [Pause] … I’m not telling,” she said, laughing a little as she say back and crossed her arms. “I just remember doing an audition once and then afterwards it was just total silence, and the director just went, ‘Thank you.’ … Then there’s the other kind of audition where you audition for something like eight times. You just keep coming back and auditioning. It’s like a kind of torture. I did that for a film and then I ended up not getting the part and that was not very pleasant. I have a voodoo doll of that director.”
So, who would that director be? Read more…
Lourdes Leon was destined to be a fashion prodigy from the start. In fact, we definitely could have made this list when she was still in diapers. The gal’s got a look that’s equal parts class and sass, with her momma Madonna’s killer smile to boot. She cruised through those awkward middle school years without missing a beat, and even started her own fashion blog to try and help the rest of us look a tiny bit as good as her. She’s collaborated with her famous ma on developing the Material Girl fashion line, and went all teen mogul on us with her own brand of makeup. And this was all before she could drive! To celebrate Lourdes’ 15th birthday today, we’ve put together a gallery of her 15 most fabulously fashionable looks. Enjoy!

Madonna‘s daughter Lourdes Leon was spotted in tears outside the Kabbalah Centre in New York yesterday. The 14-year-old walked out looking like she was in real distress and Madonna went into full Mom mode comforting her and guiding her towards their car protectively. The mother-daughter duo looked as if they were discussing something. This is a very different Lourdes than who who we saw at Macy’s just days ago, celebrating the ‘Material Girl’ one year anniversary. We hope that it’s not anything too serious. Cheer up, Lourdes! It’ll be okay!

She definitely is her mother’s daughter. Celebrating the 1-year anniversary of the Material Girl collection, Lourdes Leon took centerstage at Macy’s along with Kelly Osbourne. The duo went for diametrically different looks. Lourdes — only 14 but somehow pulled off — red lips, a printed yellow mini dress and high heels. Kelly went hipster chic in matte hot lipstick with glasses and a leather jacket and tight skirt combination. There was a little fashion show as well as a part and Kelly and Lourdes both walked the pink runway. How is this girl so self-composed being so young? We’re so starting an L.L fan club!

Lourdes Leon, will you be our friend? It’s not a conventional thing for us to ask a 14 year old, but let’s face it, this teenager is far cooler (and more savvy) than we’ll ever be. Case in point — Lourdes has launched her own make-up collection now! Madonna Junior was on hand in New York to launch Material Girl Beauty. Wonder where Mom was? She probably backed off so Lourdes could have her moment.
The collection’s not too hardcore comprising lotions, body washes, eye palettes, lip glosses and nail polishes — but it’s a start. We’re happy that they’ve kept it light and easy because even though Lourdes has this life, she’s still just 14. years old. Either way, what’s the bet that it’ll sell out? All the bottles have that Madonna fingerless glove floral-and-lace print! Heck, we’d buy the stuff!
Lady Gaga might want to consider keeping out of the child-rearing game. While it was awfully nice of Madonna to take daughter Lourdes to the Vanity Fair Oscar Party, her daughter was reportedly aghast at how mom was pushing her bottom through her see-through mess dress, sighing “Mom, do you have to?” With “Born This Way” at No. 1, you know the answer damn well is “yes,” girl. Lourdes also allegedly complained “But you tell me to behave like a grown-up”—sounds like a teenager to us!
One former familial of Madonna’s didn’t seem to mind—screenwriter Dustin Lee Abraham tweeted that he saw Madonna dancing with ex-husband Sean Penn at her manager Guy Oseary‘s shindig later that night. Lourdes had probably gone back to the hotel to sulk by that point.

How gorgeous did everyone look at the massive Vanity Fair Oscar party at the Sunset Tower in West Hollywood! We had already seen the likes of winners Natalie Portman and Colin Firth at the show, but plenty of other celebrities, who we hadn’t necessarily focussed on, came out to play. And one couple who got adorably frisky together were Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber, who held hands and were quite cozy through out. Can we also say Selena rocked it in a gorgeous red Dolce & Gabbana gown? Sure it’s grown up, but Ms Gomez pulled it off admirably especially with the Biebs accessorizing her arm! She also was cutesy with pal Taylor Swift who sparkled (as usual) in a strapless gold beaded Zuhair Murad mini dress.
Gwyneth Paltrow also changed out of her Oscar gown into the Michael Kors number she wore to perform onstage, and posed with buddy Cameron Diaz. The latter’s legs went on for miles in a flirty short-short Carolina Herrera. Other couples included Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel who wore sexy Versace, and Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin who looked great in a red Monique Lhuillier dress. For a fun gallery of stars at arguably, the most important post-Oscar bash, check out our gallery below. [Photos: Getty Images]
Our favorite sullen, raccoon-eyed punching bag is back! Taylor Momsen attended the Material Girl clothing launch with Madonna and Lourdes Leon last night, and despite being in the presence of one of the world’s most famous women, she still couldn’t be bothered to smile. And what’s worse, her bitchface seems to be rubbing off on Lourdes, who also never cracked a smile. Nooo! You can grimace all you want, Taylor, but you can’t have our Lourdes!
Our favorite pic might be the one where Taylor – in what has to be the dictionary definition of “begrudgingly” – waves to the camera. “Must! Lift! Arm! And! Wave! Oh f*ck it, forget it.”
