Lourdes models Madonna’s cone bra
Thursday 28 June 2012
At 15, Lourdes Leon has taken raiding her mum’s wardrobe to another level, posing in a revamped version of Madonna’s infamous cone bra, originally worn on her Blond Ambition Tour in 1990.
The snap of Madonna’s eldest child sticking her tongue out and grabbing the bra for the camera, was taken backstage at Madonna’s MDNA tour and posted on Twitter on Wednesday. Along with the pic was the tweet: 'Lola backstage at MDNA!'
A short while later her mum Madonna took to the stage on the European leg of her 80 nation MDNA tour, which kicked off last month in Tel Aviv, layering the corset style costume over a suit. The tour is her ninth since 1985.
The 53-year-old singer had eight outfit changes during the show, the conical bra being the highlight of them all. Designer Jean Paul Gaultier reinvented the bustier for the world tour, which he originally created 22 years ago. He commented, 'We played with the idea of a suit and a corset. But the corset is now like a cage. What I have donethis time is a nod to the conical bra corset of the Blond Ambition tour butreinterpreted in 3-D, in patent leather on the outside with metallic leather on the inside. It's all about masculine and feminine, Madonna and Jean Paul Gaultier classics reinterpreted for 2012.’
In an interview in April, The Queen of Pop revealed that she worries her daughter is growing up too fast and that she needs to be a tougher mum to Lourdes Leon, who was photographed smoking a cigarette earlier in the year. She added, "Idon't approve of anyone smoking cigarettes, most of all my daughter."
