Yesterday (Sept. 22nd), Madonna and daughter Lourdes walked the pink carpet at Macy’s Herald Square in New York City for the launch of their collection, Material Girl. Taylor Momsen, lead singer of The Pretty Reckless and the face of the new collection, was also on hand.
Material Girl was designed by [lastfm]Madonna[/lastfm] and Lourdes along with Iconix Brand Group‘s in-house fashion department. The collection includes apparel, footwear, handbags and jewelry and will be available exclusively at Macy’s stores.
13-year-old Lourdes is quickly becoming a fashion icon. The Material Girl Collection is cute and affordable, and Lola started her own fashion blog to help promote it. Lola and Madge handpicked Taylor Momsen to be the face of the line.
Lola on teen fashion: “I think it’s really changing, a whole new scene is coming in. The geek chic is totally where we’re going. I think the 80′s are really back right now.”
She also cited Momsen, [lastfm]Lady Gaga[/lastfm], the late Alexander McQueen and Alexander Wang as her design influences.
So far, Lourdes seems like a pretty grounded and hard-working little girl. But is Taylor Momsen really the best role model for her and other young girls? (Don’t get me wrong, I love T-Moms. But I’m an adult, so it’s allowed.)
As we previously reported, Taylor Momsen likes to do some strange things in her free time. And, well… you’ve seen what she looks like and how she dresses.
Surprisingly, Momsen’s band is actually good. Really good. If you can get past the raccoon eyes and the fact that a 17-year-old is writhing on a buffet table.
