Madonna, Abbie Cornish and Andrea Riseborough Promoting W.E. at 2011 Venice Film Festival

Madonna and Abbie Debut W.E. at the Venice Film Festival

Madonna stepped out in a butterfly-bedecked Vionnet gown and matching sunglasses as she debuted her directorial project W.E. at the Venice Film Festival yesterday evening. The multitalented Madge gave the stars of her film, Abbie Cornish and Andrea Riseborough, a warm welcome on the red carpet, and she also had fans in Valentino and Marisa Tomei, who both turned up at the event. Reviews of W.E. have been mixed, but the period piece is so far faring better with the critics than her first effort behind the camera, 2008's Filth and Wisdom. Earlier in the day, Madonna gave a press conference to talk about the movie and credited her exes Sean Penn and Guy Ritchie with encouraging her directorial dreams. Madonna has dated several men in Hollywood, but the creative talents of her current flame lie elsewhere; Madonna's new beau, 24-year-old Brahim Zaibat, is a professional breakdancer.
