Madonna's daughter, Lourdes Leon, has once again captured the public's attention, this time with her audacious fashion choice at the Marc Jacobs show on July 1, 2024, in New York City. She stepped out in a provocative cutout fishnet dress that left little to the imagination.

The 27-year-old fashionista's hair was styled in effortless beachy waves, and she highlighted her look with dark eye makeup and a glossy lip, creating a blend of boldness and glamour. The revealing outfit quickly became a hot topic on social media, igniting a mix of criticism and praise from netizens.

One critic lamented, "It's like the young ladies now a days are trying so hard to 'shock' folks and out naked one another. It's sad! Tacky and not so classy [sic]!" Another user quipped, "It's a bit much. Lol."

Others questioned the practicality of the ensemble. "Doesn't look like she can walk properly in that. Does she have guys who carry her around?" one person asked skeptically.

Some comments were less forgiving. "Lourdes did not inherit Madonna's beauty. Even Madonna, back in the day, wouldn't be caught dead in this get-up," remarked one commenter. Another bluntly stated, "Not acceptable attire to wear in public."

Another balanced the critique with a nod to her confidence, stating, "I get that she has a body and I applaud to flaunt what you've got.... But there's waaaaayyy better outfits than that [sic]." Amidst the backlash, one supporter declared, "I think she looks 🔥🔥."

However, another commented, "Beautiful dress same as if she's wearing a bikini chillax!! She's looks stunning in it stop hating [sic]." A last supporter noted, "Very Madonna, I like it," drawing a direct comparison to her mother's fearless fashion sense.

Reflecting on her fashion journey and her relationship with her famous mom, Lourdes humorously revealed in a 2021 interview that she does "steal" her mom's clothes. "I do, but now there's a lock on her closets. When she's not in the house, those things are locked tight, because I take everything I feel that I'm entitled to," she said.

Lourdes has also shared Madonna's advice regarding the fashion industry, highlighting her caution to "think about what you want to be known for." She reflected on how being a model can focus too much on looks, causing insecurity.

"Obviously, you're not going to look the same your whole life. My mom is very insistent on making me think about what I want to be known for beyond my looks. That's not what I want people to remember me by. It's not real," Lourdes explained.

On another note, Lourdes' father, Carlos Leon, has often praised her healthy lifestyle and keen fashion sense. In a 2016 interview, he shared, "[Lourdes is] very much into the healthy lifestyle."

Carlos said he offers Lourdes some nutrition advice, advocating for a daily intake of greens beyond just salads, including broccoli, peas, cauliflower, and other raw vegetables.

The proud dad mentioned that while Lourdes enjoyed eating junk food, she kept herself active. "She takes dance classes. She's very healthy," he said.

Beyond wellness, Carlos added that he and his daughter often exchange fashion tips, with Lourdes advising him on his style choices. "If I wear my jeans too tight, she'll tell me," Carlos shared.

Lourdes Leon's eye for style and bold fashion this year was not the only thing that caught netizens' attention. Last year, she also set Instagram ablaze after sharing pictures of herself wearing purses that covered only sensitive body parts in a fashion campaign.

One picture showed her with chains attached to her eyes. In the next slide, the young model appeared nude, hands on a computer table, as she looked at images from her shoot.

Lourdes thrives in the realm of creativity and finds joy in being involved in various creative endeavors, making her journey in the entertainment industry both fulfilling and fun. According to her, modeling is a smart and enjoyable choice.

Alongside her modeling career, she embraces her talents as a singer and dancer. Despite receiving numerous job offers, she has expressed little interest in acting. She demonstrated her musical talent by releasing her single, "Cuntradiction."

Despite being raised in a privileged family, Madonna's daughter revealed that she never received handouts from her parents because her mother wanted to instill a sense of independence in her.

As she continues to navigate the spotlight, Lourdes' bold fashion choices and the public's reactions highlight the challenges faced by celebrity offspring. With her fearless approach to fashion and her family's unwavering support, Lourdes is making her mark in her own unique way.
