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.

When you hear that a certain not-yet-available-in-America skincare line is how famous English roses like Victoria Beckham and Kylie Minogue — along with in-the-know and often on-the-beach celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, Renée Zellweger — keep their cellulite under control, even the most jaded beauty editor snaps to attention.
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.”
– Madonna reveals some of daughter Lourdes‘ fashion inspirations and divulges that Lourdes tries to make the fashion decisions in the Ciccone household. Could this explains Madonna’s recent Run-DMC look? [USA Today] Keep reading »

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 »
Madonna is directing yet another Britastic film. After last year’s “Filth and Wisdom,” she’s now doing one called “W.E.” The flick is about Queen Elizabeth and how she was once a savvy, powerful chick. Natalie Dormer of “The Tudors” will be playing the Queen Mother and James Fox of “Sherlock Holmes” has been cast as King George V. Madonna totally loses us on the plot, though, which goes on a confusing journey through England’s royal scandals, like the love affair between King Edward VIII and American divorcée Wallis Simpson. During the relationship, Simpson was accused of being a witch, a hermaphrodite and the king was thought to be gay and a Nazi sympathizer. Supposedly, their relationship will be juxtaposed “with a 1998 romance between a woman in a loveless marriage (Abbie Cornish) and a Russian security guard.” Got it? Yeah, me neither. Vera Farmiga, Ewan McGregor, and Margo Stilley have all dropped out of the project. Stilley cited “artistic differences” and said Madonna is “really something.” In a good or bad way?

Even the housewives on Bravo never looked this good while performing their mundane tasks, but Stefano Gabbana maintains that the down-to-earth quality of the ordinary woman was the inspiration for the fall Dolce & Gabbana ads featuring Madonna. The images, which were shot by Steven Klein in Harlem, were inspired by the Italian classic film “Mamma Roma” and continue the story of Madonna’s spring ads with the fashion house. “We wanted to continue pushing our current message that shows fashion’s more human nature and our heritage. This is yet another tassel of that mosaic,” said Gabbana. “We believe the campaign is comforting and that people will somehow identify themselves in the images, which again display a more human and approachable side of Madonna,” he added. In the ads, Madonna has a strange moment with a baby, wrangles some chickens, has a skirt hemmed, and goes grocery shopping — all while looking quite extraordinary thanks to the power of designer fashions, great photography, and Photoshop. More photos after the jump. [WWD, Absolument Madonna] Keep reading »
