At previous fashion week shows, a flock of celebrity kids traded in their FROW tickets for a chance to sashay down the runways of some of the hottest designers, from Dolce & Gabanna’s fall ’18 show at Milan Fashion Week to Kaia Gerber’s fashion world domination. Now, add Lourdes Leon, daughter of Madonna, to the growing pool of celebrity offspring-turned-models, as she made her official runway debut at Gypsy Sport.
Although this was her first runway appearance, this isn’t her first time at New York Fashion Week. In 2016, Leon sat front row at Alexander Wang’s Spring 2017 runway show, so it was only a matter of time before she took it to the next level.
Now 21, Lourdes – known as Lola to her friends and family – has maintained a relatively low profile for much of her life, only joining Instagram in August of last year, and attending her first Fashion Week in 2016.
