Lourdes the Material Girl gets a Trendy Undercut!

So, Lourdes Leon, the most famous teenager in the world, daughter of Madonna and one half of clothing empire, Material Girl, has had half her hair shaved off in that most intriguing of hairstyles, the undercut. Yep, just like Alice Dellal, the Brit supermodel and face of Chanel Boy, sugar-voiced songstress, Ellie Goulding and pop’s rising star of 2012, Emeli Sande, Lourdes has been clipped on one side, leaving her remaining flowing locks in an edgy, masculine style. 

Wowsers. She now has a totes rebellious look, to compete with her fellow material girls, like Kelly Osborne (with grey hair the colour of a cloudy November afternoon, and one squillion multi coloured tattoos) and her material girl models, who they selected from competition entrants, and who each have a kookier personal style, (mad shades of hair colour, bonkers accessories and tattoos as well) than the one before. 

What does Lourdes’s mother, otherwise known as The Queen Of Pop think of the development? We don’t know, but we’d hazard a guess that Lourdes won’t be grounded for this particular makeover any time soon. The reasons to suppose this are – 1: because back in her own Material Girl days, (the song, not the brand) Madge’s own style was extremely similar to that of Eighties bubblegum pop supremo, Cyndi Lauper, who, you’ve guessed it was an early pioneer of the shavey, ravey style. And number 2 -  the undercut, often chosen by posh birds as a way to look more edgy without doing themselves any lasting damage, is the modern equivalent of having your belly button pierced in the Nineties. It looks superficially daring, but in fact, if you get bored of it, you simply stop using clippers and it grows back on it’s own. (Belly button rings can be taken out and they heal up, of course.)

We have heard that Lourdes attends an extremely elite and academic private school in London, and Madonna has remarked in many an interview that she is quite a strict Mum, so maybe that is why Lourdes has taken herself off the barber’s to get clipped, rather than the tattoo parlour to get inked (!) But if she does, we’ll be the first to let you know!

    2015 Nissan Murano aims for the style-forward crowd

    Nissan says its 2015 Murano crossover, only the second major revamp of the car since it debuted in 2003, draws its design cues from the “age of future space flight.” That’s probably taking it a little far, but the new Murano, based off the 2013 Resonance concept vehicle, is an exceptionally lovely machine, all fluid, curved metal on the outside, and flowing, soft-touch materials on the inside. Certain kinds of comfort and charms that were unheard-of outside of premium vehicles five years ago have definitely trickled down, and reached a kind of design apotheosis with this car.

    Volkswagen brings new (ish) Jetta to New York along with Golf Sportwagen

    With its new President and CEO of America, Michael Horn, on stage in New York after just 100 days on the job, Volkswagen debuted its 2015 Jetta. You'd be forgiven for noticing little differences compared to the outgoing model, and in the words of Horn himself, the changes are indeed subtle. The most notable of those subtleties is the all-new 2.0 liter turbo diesel motor, offering 45 mpg highway and a modest increase of 10 hp. For VW, diesel is where it's at.

    With Vantage GT, Aston Martin races below $100,000

    Aston Martin is going downmarket, sort of. The 2015 Vantage GT, a sport-styled variant of Aston’s legendary flagship car, draws style and performance tips from their GT4 race cars, which will be running in North America this year. It’s also priced at $99,900, which shows that the market for these kinds of consumer sports cars has boomed in recent years.
