Madonna brings Lourdes out for ‘Nine’ red carpet


Madonna decided to give her oldest daughter a special treat last night – a red carpet, and the premiere of Nine. Some days, I think Madonna just might be a cool mom. What a great mother-daughter activity! I’m totally serious, and I’m shocked that Madge was so cool about it. Anyway, these are the photos of Lola and Madge on the red carpet – they posed together the whole time, which was probably a precondition for Madge letting Lola go.

First of all, Lola really is a beautiful young woman. She seems very self-possessed too. The camera loves her, and she loves the camera right back. Oh, yes. She’ll be in the spotlight soon. Her skirt is a little too short for my taste (Lola is only 13 years old!), but she still manages to look like a kid with her boots and her braces. I used to think Lola looked just like her mom, but I’m seeing more of Carlos Leon in her face now. It works for her. As for Madge… well… it looks like she’s done something new to her face. And it looks painful.

Madonna turned the New York premiere of Nine into a family affair last night as she arrived with daughter Lourdes.

The film may have been set in the Sixties, but Madonna was clearly going for an Eighties look as she turned up in a figure-hugging outfit strongly reminiscent of her Like A Prayer look.

The 51-year-old singer looked nearly as young as she did during the 1989 video as she stepped out in a lace D&G bustier dress, long gloves and silver crucifix.

Her 13-year-old daughter was also going for the Eighties look in a Dolce & Gabbana fringed skirt, biker gloves, leather jacket, Doc Marten boots and several beaded necklaces.

With her boyfriend Jesus Luz DJing in his native Brazil, the Material Girl treated her eldest child to a night on the red carpet.

Yeah, I swear I’ve seen Madge wear this dress before. Maybe Dolce & Gabbana keeps churning out the same little black bustier dresses? Probably. Also, I don’t get Madge’s hair these days. Her hair says “50-something bottle-blonde cougar” while her body says “clinging-to-youth gristle”. If Madge wants to look younger, she needs to do something different with her hair. Maybe she could even mimic her daughter’s lovely brunette shade!

    She actually looks like a decent human being and a mother in this pictures not a neurotic woman trying to cling onto youth. Yes she is botoxed to the nines but at least she looks human.

  2. Risa says:

    WOW… her daughter is going to be very pretty-hopefully she won’t follow in mom’s grissly footsteps-or fitness steps…

  3. Maritza says:

    Madonna is looking her age, no matter what she does she can’t fix it. Lourdes definitely stole her spotlight.

  4. Len says:

    I think her hair looks much better than before, when it looked al ratty and unkept, in her Ed-Hardy-days.
    Is she wearing gloves to hide her hands? i wonder..

  5. Jojo says:

    Lourdes is drop dead gorgeous, even with braces. WOW!

    Madonna is looking a bit tired however. She should take a break!

  6. Dorothy says:

    I would be so embarrassed if my mother went out of the house dressed like this… Of course my mother is 75 but still….

  7. snowball says:

    Unrelated to Madonna’s stuff, I clicked on that 50 cent Starpulse link up there. It’s a story about 50’s new song referencing Paul McCartney and unflatteringly, Heather Mills. His comment about the song?

    “50 says, “That’s interesting. You figure if you’re gonna marry a woman with one leg, she’s gonna stay!”

    Anyway, Lourdes does look like her dad, but if she did look like her mom, no one could tell because of all the work Madge has had done. Her face looks odd in these pics, like what’s left of her body fat is dodging her insane exercising and taken up residence in her face.

  8. Annabelle says:

    Lourdes is very pretty. Do u think she’s normal, or stuck up? Do you think she’s allowed to eat normally, or forced onto madonnas weird food issues?

  9. happymom says:

    Lourdes looks lovely-and I think part of it is that her eyebrows finally got waxed-definitely makes her look older. She had that young, Italian girl unibrow thing for a while-and I say that as someone who has one-and who has an 11 year old daughter with it too!

  10. Firestarter says:


    Madonna, imo, looks awful. That dress, her make-up, just off to me. She is looking her age. She was never what I would call a gorgeous woman to begin with.

    Lourdes looks nice.

  11. poopie says:

    me too happymom !! that unibrow large catepillar thing was awful ! and doesn’t madge have enough money to get the kid invisilign clear braces ? just sayin..

  12. mel says:

    Lourdes is beautiful!!! I luv her style and I think her skirt is ok. I’ve seen worst on a teenager but she looks age appropriate.

  13. Goddess711 says:

    Lourdes looks like Madonna when Madonna was a natural brunette Italian chick from Detroit. Pretty kid!

  14. Ethel says:

    Lourdes is really cute. And I’m so glad her mom finally let her get her brows waxed. Or maybe she rebelled and did it on her own. I did that when I shaved my legs at 13. My mom was so old fashioned and got pissed. You do what you have to do.

  15. Tiffany says:

    I have to give props where props are due, given the rep that Madonna has a Type-A personality and controlling ways, I like that all of her children have great relatioships with their father’s. When Madonna announced the first pregnacy, I was thinking that she was just using Carlos to procreate and his job was done. Same with Richie once the divorce was final. All the kids seems to have awesome relationships with their father’s and I commend her for that.

    Annabelle, this is just me but I think that the father’s spoil the kids with junk food when they are with them and Madonna has them on the same microbiotic stuff she eats, she talk about it in Vogue a few years back along with no TV watching, just DVD’s.

  16. ligeia says:

    she looks like 30 something in these pictures to me, i think she’s doing great. demonizing someone for trying to look good while aging is meh. we’re all going to be there one day. what should she do, become a shut-in, sit in a rocking chair on a patio all day and wear mumus? growing older is not a crime, sheesh. she doesn’t look 20, but shes probably fit and healthy enough to outrun and outdance a lot of 20 year olds out there. she is a mature woman, not a little girl and it shouldn’t be a crime for her age to start showing.
    the reasons all these stars go to extreme lengths with surgeries to try and erase the signs of aging is because growing up and maturing isn’t cool nowadays…apparently being young is only thing that counts.

  17. crash2GO2 says:

    I have always longed for Madonna to go with her natural dark hair color – she looks gorgeous and exotic with it. As a blond she looks harsh. Always has, always will. I like her expression here, she looks soft and you can see how much she loves her daughter. However, she is dressed like a damn hooker. What kind of roll model is that?

    Lourdes is beautiful.

  18. CadieBelle says:

    Happy to see Mom & daughter spending time together. Lourdes is pretty.

  19. lucy2 says:

    @crash, I agree, I always thought Madonna looked better with dark hair, it brought out her eyes more.
    Her face does look PAINFUL. I have no problem with trying to look good, healthy and a little younger, but her face looks bloated, waxy, and just…ouch! She looks uncomfortable in her own skin, and is just trying way too hard.
    Lourdes is pretty. A few years ago she looked exactly like her mother, but now she does really look more like her dad. And in the second photo, she looks exactly like my cousin!

  20. CadieBelle says:

    What’s with Madonna’s blue eyes? She has brown eyes & looks much better with her brown eyes and light brown hair – she is startting to get a barfly look about her

  21. WTF?!? says:

    Very pretty girl, but it looks like her mam dressed her out of her ’80s Greatest Hits closet, right down to the fingerless gloves and many necklaces. All she needs is the ridiculous hairbow and she’s a ringer for Madonna’s fashion circa Like A Virgin.

  22. Anastasia says:

    I agree with y’all–Madonna should go with a nice warm dark hair color, which is her natural color, and not wear colored contacts. Yuck.

    Her daughter is very cute, though I wouldn’t even let my 15 year old daughter wear fishnet hose along with such a short skirt.

    And YES, I think she’s wearing those gloves to cover her awful veiny gristly man hands.

  23. MsTriste says:

    Lourdes looks so much better now that she got her eyebrows fixed. I always wondered why Madonna let her keep them that way, considering how vain she is. Maybe she’s so busy looking at herself she didn’t notice her daughter had such horribly bushy eyebrows.

  24. Trillion says:

    I’m not positive but I think Madonna’s eyecolor is either green or blue. I seem to recall her having to wear brown contacts to play Eva Peron.
    Lourdes is gorgeous and is a perfect combo of Madonna and Leon.

  25. Sumodo says:

    Madge had something new done that really makes her look like Marlene Dietrich–not a good move. Even Joan Crawford looked better at this age! I am 53 and advocate the natural look many women get with non-invasive procedures.

  26. C-DUB says:

    I’m with everyone about Madonna and the dark hair. Lourdes is super cute! I’m glad she went with the boots and not the four inch heels.

  27. EMV says:

    I think people forget what kids wore in the 60s and 70s. Please watch a brady bunch episode and notice the length of the skirts…very short. I think madonna’s dress is awful and Lordes looked great…she was covered up. Anyway it’s good to see them out together having fun.

  28. Raven says:

    I think Madonna looks fine–just not the old Madonna of 20 years ago. She is showing her age and people age, regardless of attempts to hold back the clock. She was never really pretty, but her style and youth allowed her to put forth a certain image. Now the youth is gone and so is the image, despite her fighting to keep it. Those long gloves help because her arms are really unattractive. She’d be better off gaining a few pounds and becoming a music producer, developing her own acts. She’s got a great eye for style and knowing what sells. She’d be able to keep herself very wealthy.

  29. Ron says:

    Dolce and Gabbana need to retired the bustier bra strap dress, it has been done to death. And.. Madonna needs to stop buying them. I would love to see Madonna go for something a bit more elegant for a change. As far as being a Mom, I think Madonna is a good mother. People who lose their mother at a young age tend to be good parents. Madonna has done a great job with Lourdes, she’s lovely.

  30. diva says:

    For Dolce and Gabbana to be making a statement with Madonna as their new face of their campaign they should have come with a better dress. This dress looks dated and cheesy, especially at the bottom where you can see through it. This dress isn’t doing the material girl any favors, it makes her look as dated as the dress.

  31. jzhz says:

    Sheesh – 13-year old girls are supposed to get invisible braces and their brows waxed, while Russell Crowe is allowed to be a big fatty? Talk about double-standards!

  32. birdie says:

    Why does Madonna wear a cross if she’s “Jewish” and practicing Kabbalah?

    And personally I think neither Madonna nor Lourdes looks very good. Lourdes will, of course, be shoved down our throats whether or not she’s really talented, she’s being raised by a fame-whore who has already announced her daughter’s desire to continue the family tradition.

  33. Laura says:

    I wonder….if Miley Cyrus wore Lourdes’ outfit, would people say she looked nice?

  34. juiceinla says:

    They look adorable together. This is Madonna’s “Evita” look- redux. I liked it then a lot. Its fine here too.

  35. DrM says:

    Madonna looks her age…she should chill on the procedures for a bit though…Lourdes looks fab

  36. morgs says:

    I guess her surgery finally settled. Ugh.

  37. lastwordlinda says:

    She wore the gloves so that we wouldn’t comment on her ugly arms. Commenting anyway. We know what’s under the gloves Madonna, Skin, bone and gristle. The same thing that seems to be appearing on your face.

  38. Nikki says:

    I agree with ligeia. A lot of people are way being harsh and projecting onto Madonna & Lourdes. I bet if we were talking about a man- he could be bald, fat, have a unibrow, and back hair yet nobody would say a negative thing.

    Madonna looks great. I don’t care what she’s had done, she looks younger than her age and she’s a good-looking woman. Her body also looks great.

    Madonna’s natural eye color is blue-green. You can see baby pictures and school pictures of her to realize that’s true. The only time she ever had brown eyes was during Evita when she wore contacts.

    Madonna’s not Jewish. She studies Kabbalah which isn’t a religion. You can be a part of a religion and still study Kabbalah.

    I actually commend Madonna for not forcing Lourdes to wax her eyebrows at age 6 as some people wanted her to do. She let Lourdes be a little girl for as long as possible and Lourdes got her eyebrows done shortly after her 12th birthday. Lourdes dresses herself and is into the 80s in terms of fashion and music, that’s her prerogative. Madonna’s not forcing that onto her.

  39. waldemar says:

    I find it funny that people call madonna vain and then in the same sentence say the Lourdes should have waxed her unibrow at age 6 because it is ugly.


  40. paranel says:

    They both look ridiculous and average. Please.

  41. Linda says:

    I think Madonna looks absolutely beautiful…How many of you ladies look as good…even in your 30s and 40s.Most of you ladies should be as critical of yourselves! Shes a star and looks like one!

  42. jenna says:

    Why does Madonna wear a cross? She has made a lucrative career out of blasphemizing Jesus Christ by wearing a crown of thorns and making obscene gestures with a crucifix. Madonna is the vilest performer in the history of pop music.

  43. Lila says:

    is madonna forcing her daughter down?
    so she is a white trash chic from detroit!
    she is desperate to get into old money.
    she will end up in a tyrant class.

  44. Michael Bruno says:
