Lourdes Leon hails Madonna after making her modelling debut

Madonna's daughter Lourdes Leon has hailed her mother as her fashion inspiration after making her modelling debut.

The 19-year-old student, who is more commonly known as Lola, features in a new campaign for Stella McCartney's latest fragrance, Pop, and has revealed how her chart-topping mother's eye-catching sense of style has influenced her over the years.

She said: "My mom has helped me so much. She has great style and she's an amazing dresser."

This comes shortly after Madonna settled her differences with her 15-year-old son Rocco following a high-profile custody dispute.

The duo previously fell out when Rocco prematurely left Madonna's Rebel Heart Tour in order to spend more time with his father Guy Ritchie in London.

But following a recent family reunion in the UK capital, Madonna took all four of her children on a trip to Africa in an effort to raise awareness for charity.

They visited some of the most impoverished areas on the continent as part of Shining Hope For Communities, which provides clean water and free healthcare to all-girls schools.

Among the places the family visited was Kibera in Kenya, where Madonna shared a photo of a badly polluted river.

She captioned the image: "Imagine this is where your water comes from!"

Meanwhile, the 57-year-old pop star also posed with Rocco, Lourdes and her two other children - David, 10, and Mercy, also 10 - alongside local residents.

Prior to the trip, a source close to Madonna admitted she saw a summer-time getaway as a chance to get her family "back on track".

An insider previously said: "This is a big summer for them - the chance they've been looking for to get things back on track.

"It's part of the compromise they've reached - and a chance for Rocco to see his brother and sisters, as they all miss each other a lot."
