Madonna, famous for her outlandish fashion sensibilities, says she wishes her teen daughter Lourdes would ‘dress more conservatively’.“You could say it’s in the DNA. I could never tell her how to dress,” the Telegraph quoted Madonna as telling a US weekly.
The singer, 51 and her girl, 13, have paired up for a teen clothing line, Material Girl, which will hit stores later in the year. “If anything, I wish she’d dress more conservatively. How’s that for irony?” exclaims Madonna. Madonna also believes her daughter, nickname Lola, is more stylish than her.
“I am boring, basically. She reminds me of me when I was younger. She just goes for it and tries different things. It doesn’t look like she thought too much about it,” the Telegraph quoted her as saying.
Talking about their new clothing line, Madonna said: “Lola has been bothering me for ages about designing clothes. Stella McCartney is a good friend of mine and she got her mind thinking when Lola was a little girl, about eight-years-old. She started giving Lola fabrics and inviting her into her showroom and asking her opinion on things, giving her sketch books and stuff like that. Stella always pushed her.”
She added, “I have a lot of friends who are clothing designers, whether it is Gaultier or Dolce and Gabbana. Lola has been around all of the shoots I have done and all of the campaigns I have done.
The last two tours I have done, she has been working in the wardrobe department. On this last tour she dressed all of the dancers.” “It’s good because she does have good taste in fashion. I respect her taste and I rarely disagree with her,” said Madonna.
