Almost three years after Madonna published a photograph on her Instagram account with underarms and joined the movement known as #sobaquember, a claim that wanted to break the prejudice that hair is unsightly and unhygienic in women, Queen of Pop has posted another similar image in this same social network, only this time with her daughter Lourdes as the protagonist.
On December 31, the singer uploaded a picture of her daughter Lourdes León, known as Lola, with hairs on her armpits and the phrase we are ready for you 2018 (We are ready to receive you, 2018, in Spanish).
The snapshot of Madonna’s daughter adds to the reflection on female hair removal that celebrities themselves , from actresses to writers, have been encouraging since 2014. Since then, many celebrities have shown some parts of their body without hair, from the actress and American singer Miley Cyrus to the interpreter Lola Kirke, known for her role in the Mozart in the Jungle series , which at the last Golden Globes gala showed her armored hair.
Other known cases come even before. In 1999, during the premiere of the film Notting Hill , the actress Julia Roberts also appeared with hair in the armpits.
The last example is that of Gigi Hadid : the 22-year-old model , one of the best paid in the industry and one of the favorite faces of catwalks, posed for Love’s famous Advent calendar with hair in the armpits.
