Madonna grabbed the media attention at the première of her latest film WE at the Venice Film Festival on Thursday, September 1. She walked the red carpet with dazzling tailed dress and red-framed spectacles.
Her grand entry received standing ovation at the Sala Grande (Palazzo del Cinema). Madonna also posed for photographers before she was joined by the lead actress of WE, Abbie Cornish, who sported dee purple Atelier Versace gown.
Talking about WW, she said “I think once you become famous, you have to pretty much relinquish the idea that people are going to see you for who you are, or look beyond the surface of things. I think that was a source of great frustration for Wallis Simpson and for Edward VIII, because after he abdicated, they didn't really have the opportunity to defend themselves."
“So hopefully, I have been able to do that for Wallis Simpson through my film." She concluded. WE is the story of Wallis Simpson, the woman England's King Edward VIII abdicated the throne to marry. It is Madonna's second directorial venture.
