Madonna‘s romances and breakups have always been front-page tabloid fodder, but the Material Mom has done an excellent job keeping her children’s lives private. Since her arrival 13 years ago, the world has seen little of her first child, Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon, other than in paparazzi photos. (Her father is Carlos Leon, a Cuban-American trainer.) Lourdes, who goes by “Lola,” is inching more and more into the public eye with her Macy’s clothing line, Material Girl, and her mega-adorable blog that’s developed a following by more than a few Frisky staffers. On her blog, Lola likes to share her made-up words — fabnosity! — and her favorite bands — My Chemical Romance. But don’t let the normal tween-y behavior fool you: Lola leads a pretty charmed life.

Fashion catchphrases come and go. Everyone was obsessed with “fierce” for a while, “fashionista” had its reigning moment, but now Lourdes Ciccone is working hard to add a new term to the world’s vocabulary. She’s been blogging non-stop about the new Material Girls’ Collection for Macy’s, and in between her style stories, It Girl features, and personal pictures, Lola’s introduced a new fashion term to her followers.
“I’m not the designer of the line but my mom and I inspired it and do the styling and the putting together, staying on trend, yadayadayaaaahh. No but for rizzle, it’s a great line and if you guys like it that that is FABNOSITY.”
We’re going to assume that fabnosity is a mix of fabulous and generosity, which would make sense given the context. Despite her genuine attempts to make the term work, this seems like a word that’s limited to the realm of 13-year-old girls who would use it for a week before it dies out again in favor of the latest hot vocab mashup.

Look, it’s Madonna showing Taylor Momsen, 16, how to work it, work it. Madge was directing and photographing Miss Momsen for a commercial featuring the former’s Material Girl line collaboration with daughter Lourdes Ciccone, 13.

“[Lourdes is] influenced by everything from bands she listens to, kids she sees in hip-hop and ballet classes and she’s been to enough photo sessions, video shoots and seen me put my tours together to have developed a great eye. She’s also worked in the wardrobe department on some of my tours. I love the way she puts different things together that are sometimes unexpected. She’s the fashion police at our house and has a point of view on what everyone is wearing. I’m not saying we agree on everything but we enjoy collaborating together.”

Things The Frisky-ers find adorable: hugging cats, little mermaids, Lourdes Ciccone. Madonna’s daughter has posted another update to her fashion blog that focuses on the upcoming launch of the Material Girl Collection collaboration between her and her mom. She uses the word “uber” (“I’m like uber happy you guys like my blog”), is preparing to dye her hair (“a kind of cherry blackish thingy bobbie”), and listening to Florence and the Machine. As for the Material Girl line, she reveals it will be vintage-y: “there’s gonna be a whole area of like one of a kind vintage things!” We love Lola. [Material Girl] Keep reading »
Cat’s out of the bag—”Gossip Girl” star and angsty teen Taylor “Bad Attitude” Momsen will be the face of Lourdes Ciccone’s Material Girl line for Macy’s that she’s designing with mommy Madonna. Think little Lola had a say in hiring her? Our instincts say yes as Lourdes has been pushing her juniors collection towards an edgier style, and Momsen seems like the type of style icon Lola would admire.
Of course—and it’s so obvious, do we even have to say it?—the critics will inevitably rage against Momsen for presenting herself through yet another avenue as a bad role model for teens. She’s got a bitchy attitude, she smokes, she acts way too old and reckless for a 16-year-old, etc., etc. What do you think about Taylor Momsen modeling for Material Girl? Would you have rather seen Lourdes do it herself? [E! Online] Keep reading »
