Lourdes: Madonna's Little Fashion Plate

Here's Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon, spawn of Madonna, stepping out last weekend in Los Angeles dressed to the nines -- which also happens to be her age (click on the photo box).

When your mom's the original Material Girl, best known for her outrageous dress sense, could you expect anything less?

Little Lourdes was styled to a T -- sporting trendy Converse All Stars, green knee-highs, a retro 80s-style denim skirt and a striped henley.

"I think her stylist was trying to go for 'The Littlest Pussycat Doll' look," says celeb stylist Shane Cisneros. "Lourdes has the ability to wear anything just like her mother -- here, she's channeling mom's Danceteria days."

And yes, you read that right -- the 9-year-old has a stylist.

Whatever the look, it's clear from this picture that Lourdes is precocious, says behavioral analyst and body language expert Maxine Lucille Fiel.

"The way she's standing shows that she may be coming into early womanhood," Fiel says. "I think she's now entering a very interesting phase of adolescence and I wish Madonna luck."

Lourdes' attitude, more Avril than angel, is no surprise -- Madonna's push-the-envelope genes and rebellious streak are in her blood, and their mother-daughter shopping trips to Harvey Nicks and Harrods have fostered her posh fashion sense.

This wee fashion plate, like mom, eschews prissy frocks in favor of pushing the limits of fashion, favors clothes from boutique Bunny London, facials at London's Eve Lom, manicures from Daniel Galvin's salon and posh department store makeup.

Designer-to-the-stars Stella McCartney has also been known to knock out some one-of-a-kind children's pieces for Little Lola.

Clothes, ever a commodity in our material world, are even used as punishment in the Ciccone-Ritchie household.

"My daughter has a problem picking up in her room," Madonna told Ladies' Home Journal. "So if you leave your clothes on the floor, they're going to be gone when you come home. She has to earn all of her clothes back by being tidy."

Still, even if mom's quarantined some of her wardrobe, it looks like Lourdes knows how to work what she's got -- "The swinging of the handbag is a symbol of her independence and early womanhood. That's the thing. It's right in your face," Fiel says.
