Last year was the year of rocking armpit hair proudly. Whether it was Lady Gaga shunning the razor in a sexy selfie or Gigi Hadid kicking ass and sporting some fuzz in the Love advent calendar, celebrities let their pits do their thing. In one final photo of the year, Lourdes Leon, Madonna's 21-year-old daughter, gorgeously followed suit.
In the photo above, we can see two things. First: Madonna is not like a regular mum — she's a cool mum. The second takeaway? Along with a bold red lip and absolutely luscious brows, Lourdes's impeccable beauty look included armpit hair. We have just three words for her choice to let it grow: here. for. it.
Many fans chimed in with a similar mindset. "It's just hair!" one wrote. "Women have it . . . You are so beautiful and inspiring!" Another urged trolls to "Celebrate our femininity, not what beauty standards tell us what to do." Can we get a hell yes?
Of course, Lourdes's mother has been an outspoken advocate for feminism and not giving a f*ck about convention for her entire career. As Madonna told us in December 2017, "The thing that makes you feel the most beautiful is when you're happy with yourself, and you're confident, and you've done something good." Guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!
