Lourdes, 25, is a model in demand and her latest venture is an underwear campaign for “America’s Best Designer” Calvin Klein. Also in the campaign are celebrities such as The Pet Shop Boys, Willem Dafoe, and Dame Joan Collins.

In the pictures, Lourdes, nicknamed Lola, can be seen showing off her toned, curvy figure in the timeless Calvin Klein underwear.

She makes a point to raise her arms, revealing her natural body hair. The model does this to challenge society’s beauty standards that are forced onto women.

Her unshaven underarms made headlines last year at the Met Gala, where she fearlessly lifted her arms for the photographers, and indeed the world, to see.

“Did I have fun at the Met Gala? I’m really grateful to have been able to go. Maybe because it was my first time, but it felt crazy,” she told actress Debi Mazar in an interview with Interview Magazine.

“You’re just shoved into a room with all these famous people and you’re supposed to talk to them and be their friend, even though you don’t f—king know them. That’s not my vibe.”

“I’m sure it’s fun if you’re someone who is friends with a lot of famous people, but I’m not,” she added about calling her boyfriend Jonathan Puglia during the event. “I didn’t know who the f—k to talk to. I felt so awkward that I literally called my boyfriend in the middle of it.”

On the topic of featuring Lourdes, Calvin Klein said: “Marc has a long storied history with Madonna and so it only made sense for us to tap Lola to be the face of the campaign as she perfectly encapsulates the youthful spirit and uncompromising sense of individuality central to this younger expression of the brand.”

When asked about her nickname, Lourdes said: “The Lola attitude to me is provocative.”

Lourdes also recently modeled for British luxury brand Burberry, as well as Savage x Fenty, the hugely successful underwear brand owned by Rihanna.

At first glance, the shoes worn by Madonna’s daughter, Lourdes Leon, at the Vanity Fair Oscar party at Sunset Tower in West Hollywood in February 2011 may seem like just the usual black platforms.

Her shoes look like your ordinary noir pair of leather platforms upfront. However, they were actually rather unique.

Lourdes styled a tiny Aztec-inspired AllSaints mini dress with a pair of unique perspex heels from the same British fashion boutique.

How do you like Lourde’s avant-garde wedges? They feature screw detailing that’s been embedded inside, leather upper, rubber soles, a square toe, and heel tips.

This “Ovid” wedge has an industrial feel that’s quite unique and refreshing. I could see this pair styled with dresses, skirts, and skinny jeans.
