Madonna was decked out in a black lace dress Dolce & Gabanna this morning as she left Venice's Hotel Excelsior and hopped into a water taxi. She made her way over to where the action is going down at the city's film festival, ready to tackle another day of press for her directional feature W.E. Madonna wore Vionnet to yesterday's premiere along with her leading ladies Abbie Cornish and Andrea Riseborough. However, W.E.'s reviews are pretty poor from critics. According to some reviews, moviegoers in Venice were laughing at inappropriate times and the film is said to be pretty, but without much substance. Producer Harvey Weinstein now needs to assess how much money he'll put into promoting the project ahead of its December release. She unfortunately has some other unpleasant business to contend with. Madonna's being sued over the use of "Material Girl" in her Macy's line, and she'll be required to appear in an LA courtroom next month.
