Should a Mother and Daughter Dress Like Sisters?carolyncastiglia
Last night, Madonna and her daughter Lourdes, 13, walked the pink carpet together at Macy’s for the unveiling of their new Material Girl line. Madonna, age 52, looked as youthful as ever in a funky black dress with leather gloves and lots of jewelry. Lourdes admitted to not only stealing clothes from her mom’s closet, but that Madonna has been known to raid Lourdes’s collection as well. But do you think it’s appropriate for a mother-daughter pair to look more like sisters? Especially when that means mom might be dressing too youthfully while baby is looking perhaps too grown-up?
Though I do believe schools have a right to impose dress codes, I’m generally not a big stickler when it comes to what people wear: if you’re happy, so be it. But I won’t say I’ve never cringed when seeing a woman coming down the street who is obviously trying too hard to look young or fashionable. Madonna’s physique is hotter at 52 than mine has ever been or will ever be, so she obviously has lots of wiggle room when it comes to appropriate dress, but what do you think? Is she too desperate to evoke kid culture? And is Lourdes too provocative in those ripped tights?
One thing is for sure, this pair seems to love each other a whole bunch. Check out their adorable interview below.
