Her mother has never been one to stick to conventions.
And it appears Madonna's daughter, Lourdes, is also unafraid to stand out - as she showed off her natural underarm hair in a family photo.
In an image shared with Madonna's 10.6million Instagram followers, the pair can be seen smiling in matching red lipstick as the 59-year-old lovingly holds her daughter's face.

Her first born: Just before midnight on New Year's Eve, Madonna, 59, posted a photo to Instagram showing her cradling the face of her 21-year-old daughter Lourdes Leon
In 2014 Madonna shared a picture of herself posing seductively in a bra while showing off her unkempt underarm hair with the caption: 'Long hair...... Don't Care!!!!!! #artforfreedom #rebelheart#revolutionoflove'
Julia Roberts made the biggest splash when at the 1999 Notting Hill premiere, the elegant actress raised her arm to reveal a tuft of underarm hair
But as the beaming 21-year-old leans back to put her tattooed arms around her mother, she flashes her dark armpit hair.
Madonna, who was dressed in a black hat and a sheer black dress, made no reference to her daughter's natural look in the caption, simply writing: 'We are Ready For You 2018!'.
Some fans were unimpressed by the untamed underarm hair, with one describing it as 'disgusting' while another told her to go and shave.
A third simply commented 'yuck'.
However, some congratulated the model for making a statement and praised her for being 'happy natural and free'.
Happy New Year! Madonna also rang in 2018 with a pic of her adorable twins Esther and Stella whom she adopted from Malawi in February. She also has daughter Mercy, 11, and son David, 12, whom she adopted from the African country previously
It is not the first time Lourdes, who is the daughter of Madonna and Cuban actor Carlos Leon, has been pictured with her natural underarm hair.
In April, she showed her underarm hair while she was relaxing on a beach in Miami.
She may have been copying her mother, as Madonna has previously opted not to shave or wax – something she described at the time as a 'revolution'.
In 2014 she shared a picture of herself posing seductively in a bra while showing off her unkempt underarm hair with the caption: 'Long hair...... Don't Care!!!!!! #artforfreedom #rebelheart#revolutionoflove'.
But Julia Roberts made the biggest splash when at the 1999 Notting Hill premiere, the elegant actress raised her arm to reveal a tuft of underarm hair.

The 50-year-old star blamed the au naturel grooming on her partner at the time, actor Benjamin Bratt, saying: 'That's the way my boyfriend likes them'.
Other stars have also shown off the natural look, including American It-girl Gigi Hadid who starred in a Love Magazine advent video last month in which she had outgrown armpit hair.
Drew Barrymore, Pixie Lott and Lady Gaga have all refrained from grooming their underarms in the past.
Meanwhile, Madonna also spent New Year's Eve with adopted five-year-old twins Stella and Ester.
The Like a Prayer singer shared a picture of the pair in matching pyjamas and big curly black wigs with the caption: 'So Much YES! ! 2018! Love to and From Malawi!'
