On trolls coming for her for not shaving her armpits: “Yeah, come at me, bro.”

On people’s perception of her lifestyle: “‘People think I’m this talentless rich kid who’s had everything given to her, but I’m not,’ says Leon. As we speak, the 24-year-old is slouched on a sofa in a corner of the Vogue offices, her firm eyebrows knit and fists curled as if anticipating a punch. As she runs down a list of ways she’s independent from her mother (she paid for college herself; she lives in Bushwick so she can disappear into its polyglot creative community), it’s like she’s aiming bullets at a cardboard caricature of herself—an attitude that vanishes as soon as Leon is asked about her dancing.”

On her love of dancing: “A teacher of mine made me understand movement in a whole new way. You’re using your body to define the space around you—to change it. That’s a very naked form of expression.”

Lourdes Leon also recently opened up about dating a famous star.
