Madonna has never been shy about showing a little skin, but she’s got a different set of rules for her daughter Lourdes.
“Sometimes she puts something on, and I'll be like, ‘My God, that looks amazing!’ And then I'll go, ‘Oh my god, that's my 13-year-old daughter,’” she told Teen Vogue.
While Lourdes is allowed to wear makeup to special events, “there's always a little bit of a discussion about how short the skirt is... or is there some cleavage showing,” explained Madonna, 51. “And I always say to her, do you want everybody to be staring at your breasts, or do you want people to talk to you?”
Just like her mother, Lourdes likes her attire to be a bit edgy. "Lola will leave in the morning with a pair of tights on,” the singer noted.“Then when she comes home, they're all ripped. I'm like, 'What happened?' And she goes, 'I did it on purpose, Mom.' OK, then."
While the entertainer controls what her daughter wears at home, she let her have free reign when they designed their Material Girl juniors collection for Macy’s, which debuts in August. “I didn't really do anything," the star claimed. "I couldn't even say it was a collaboration. It was 90 percent Lola.”
In creating the Material Girl line, Lourdes drew heavily on items from her mom's closet –- just as she does for her own everyday street wear. "She steals from my closet all the time,” says Madonna, “whether she's allowed to or not.”
And does Madonna ever borrow from her baby? “Um, yeah,” she confesses. “She's got some really cool flat boots and I steal her Converse sneakers."
