I just realized that I've spent the last 27 years of my life admiring Madonna. There are many better singers and actors, but there's no one quite like her. Here she is at the Venice Film Festival premier of the movie she wrote and directed, W.E.. She's wearing a Vionnet gown that I hear was custom made. I'd sell my soul for a short not red-carpety version of this butterfly dress.
