Lourdes Leon is undoubtedly following in her legendary mother Madonna’s fashion footsteps when she donned a daring red corset for the runway at New York Fashion Week.
Leon recently made headlines after trying to enter the Marc Jacobs show in New York and being turned away because the doors were closed and she was a little late.
In a TikTok video, Leon was seen trying to enter the venue but was stopped by security, prompting onlookers to stage a brief protest, shouting, “Let her in!” A video later posted by Vogue showed the rising star eventually getting into the show and even had a front row seat to boot.
Lourdes Leon Don’s devil-inspired corset at NYFW
The Queen’s daughter Madonna took New York Fashion Week by storm when she walked the runway in a deep red, devil-horned corset.
Leon’s look was paired with a hat with little devil horns on it and accessorized with cherry red lipstick. The super short leather ensemble hugged her skin tight and showed off the singer’s curves.
On her Instagram, she shared a picture of her in the outfit, along with other stunning models, who were wearing similar corsets with horns on them, so there was definitely a theme to the event.
She was recently denied participation in a fashion show
Leon was denied entry to a Marc Jacobs fashion show after arriving fashionably late. She was the face of the fashion brand’s Spring 2021 campaign, which made one wonder why she would be denied entry.
In a TikTok video, onlookers could be heard shouting for Leon to be allowed in while she was standing on the stairs unable to enter. Some even tried to identify her to the guards.
She arrived at the event wearing a full denim ensemble with matching jackets and a denim bag with tall stiletto boots.
After the clip of Leon being denied entry to the Marc Jacobs fashion show went viral, Vogue posted a video on Instagram showing the model sitting front row at the event. This served as proof that Leon eventually got in despite being rejected at first.
Fans had a lot to say about Lourdes Leon being rejected
When several fans saw the viral post about Leon being rejected from the fashion event, several fans took to social media to share their opinion on the matter. Some of them pointed out that it was good that she was turned away, while others said that the guards did not do the right thing.
“Everyone’s time is valuable – glad they didn’t let her in, Be respectful and get there on time,” one fan noted.
“She got the same ritual as the mother, she was always late to all her concerts, like three hours,” wrote another fan. “Finally someone takes their job seriously. be on time!”
“That’s really how it goes, at fashion shows. As soon as it starts, no one is allowed in,” explained one fan.
Lourdes Leon says she doesn’t get preferential treatment
The 26-year-old model and singer revealed in an interview with The interview magazine that she does not receive dividends, contrary to what many believe about “nepo babies”, and that she was exposed to a rigid upbringing.
Leon was then asked if the information that she was left to pay for her tuition and apartment was true.
She replied: “We don’t get handouts in my family. Of course, I grew up with extreme privilege. It cannot be denied. But I think my mother saw all these other children of famous people, and she said, “My children are not going to be like this.”
She then went on to explain that she feels that if your parents pay for things, it gives them leverage over you, pointing out to the magazine that her mother is a control freak and has controlled her her whole life.
Leon went on to say that her mother’s advice serves as a reality check for her. She said: “Remember this shit isn’t real. It’s not about the money, your face or how hot you look. It’s about what you bring into the world and what you’re going to leave behind.”
