Madonna’s oldest daughter, Lourdes, is all grown up. See her prom pics and read her thoughts on graduating high school.
It seems like just yesterday that Madonna was starring in Evita and thrilling fans by announcing her first pregnancy — but now, her baby is graduating high school and sharing prom pictures.
Madonna Instagrammed a snapshot of daughter, Lourdes Leon, with her gal pals on prom night, and the teen beauty — the spitting image of her famous mom — is pretty in polka dots.
Lourdes waxed philosophical on fashion and the rite of passage that is leaving high school in a new blog post.
“Looking back on the past four years of high school means looking back on unfortunate outfits I wore confidently to school (good for me),” she wrote.
“Oh how I wish I could go back in time and urge my 14 year old self NOT to wear black rhinestone studded t-shirts with bloody skulls on them, purchased from really ‘hip’ stores (wtf is hip anyways). I like to reassure myself though, that I had to go through that awkward time of ‘trying stuff out’ to figure out what I liked wearing best. I still don’t think that I have a defined style, maybe because I don’t want to limit myself to what I should wear. Makes me happy knowing that I went to an arts school where any kind of style could fly: It gave me the confidence and the yolo spirit I needed to successfully look like a clown (it’s fine). Despite my unfortunate fashion choices I definitely don’t look back on High School with any bitterness.
“Even the times when cockroaches crawled out of my locker, or when trying to concentrate during an exam next to a room full of people rehearsing for show choir (ha), or walking up 7 flights of stairs on a Monday, or the lunchroom flash mobs. You know, standard things.” she continued. “I know that I was lucky enough to go to a truly exceptional High School that produces high quality shows and actually teaches you the craft of what you’re studying. So many things that have been a part of my everyday routine for the past four years now suddenly aren’t and it’s weird because so much more lies ahead – yet it feels almost empty to wrap up high school. Of course I’ll miss the friends that I’ve made and the family that makes up the drama department, but it’s really beautiful to be able to see all of the people I dearly love and care for, people that I grew up with for four years, go on and pursue their passions, whatever they may be, and find their place.
“I feel like High School Graduation is something I’ve been talking about forever and now its finally here. I was so excited about ‘being done with school’ and now that I’m actually done I’m like clammy and sweating and nervous because… WHAT?!?! Knowing that I’m going to have to wake myself up for class, and not someone banging vigorously at my door for 5 full minutes, relieves me and worries me a little. Wrapping up High School has been pretty hectic (not actually doing THAT much so idk why) and words cannot express my excitement to sit in the sun and jam wiv friends.”
No word on what’s next for Lourdes, besides running her Material Girl fashion line, but she and Madonna were spotted touring the University of Michigan last fall.
