Lourdes Leon Shows Off Underarm Hair In Met Gala Debut
Lourdes Leon attended her first Met Gala as she continues to make her name known in modeling.
The daughter of pop legend Madonna walked the carpet in a fuschia, gem-encrusted Moschino by Jeremy Scott piece. Her mother did not attend the event. The sparkly halter top has straps that wrapped around Leon’s stomach and matched her equally dazzling skirt and pink purse to match. She also wore her hair straight and past her waist. What caught more attention was her unshaved underarms. She proudly displayed and posed for photos with her armpits tastefully shown.
Leon has been making her mark in the world of modeling and fashion. She was featured in September’s issue of Vogue with Bella Hadid, Kaia Gerber, Precious Lee, Anok Yai and other models are also on the cover.
The 24-year old wanted to make known she wasn’t a “talentless rich kid who’s had everything giver to her,” she told the magazine and how she keeps away from the Hollywood lifestyle and paid for her own college tuition.
She already has an impressive fashion resume. She was included in the Marc Jacobs Spring 2021 campaign, modeling her unshaven armpits. However, Leon pays no attention to critics commenting on her body hair.
She is also going to be the face of Swarovski’s upcoming campaign which will “serve as a platform for representation of people from all cultures and orientation,” the brand stated.
The Met Gala saw many new faces Sunday evening. The guest list included Amanda Gorman, Timothee Chalamet and Billie Eilish. This year’s theme was “American Independence,” inspired by the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s upcoming exhibits, In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, which will be public September 18, and In America: An Anthropology of Fashion, set to be public May 5, 2022.
