Jewelry proved to be a big part in Madonna's film W.E. and costume designer Arianne Phillips was determined to get it right.

Since the Duke and Duchess' real jewelry belonged to museums, Phillips reached out to Cartier and agreed to help recreate 10 pieces specifically for the film. Now that jewels have served their purpose, Cartier is plans to destroy them and for a very good reason.

Arianne explained:

Deets On Madonna's Harper's Bazaar Cover Shoot!

Filed under: MadonnaSpread 'Em

Details are slowly emerging about Madonna's photoshoot with Tom Munro for Harper's Bazaar.

According to sources who have seen the December issue, the cover features both the W.E. director and Andrea Riseborough, who plays Wallis Simpson in the film.

Since Andrea is the star of the film, Madonna plays more of a supporting role on the cover and lets Riseborough enjoy her moment in the spotlight.

We can't wait for it to leak — and we hope it's sooner rather than later!

Madonna's W.E. Film Gets U.S. Distribution!

Filed under: MadonnaFilm FlickersBusiness Blitz

madonnas movie gets us distribution

It's on!

We are VERY excited to report that Madonna's U.S. directorial debut W.E. has been picked up by The Weinstein Company for domestic distribution.

As a reminder, the film's story is about "a modern-day New Yorker obsessed with the royal love story between Britain’s King Edward VIII and American divorcee Wallis Simpson."

The film was directed/co-written by Madge, and it stars Limitless' Abbie Cornish, Secret Diary of a Call Girl's James D'Arcy, and Never Let Me Go's Andrea Riseborough.

Here's what Madonna had to say about the distribution deal:

"W.E. is about the nature of true love, and the sacrifices and compromises that are often made. I've wanted to tell this story for a very long time, and bringing it to life has been a great adventure for me. I'm looking forward to working with Harvey and The Weinstein Company on this film."

Congratulations, Madge! As we've said before, we cannot wait to see this!

Are U pumped to hear that Madonna's W.E. is getting a U.S. release? Will U check it out when it hits theaters?

What's Up With The Accent, Gillian Anderson?

Well, this is certainly odd!

American-born actress Gillian Anderson was recently nominated for a BAFTA Television Award for her role as Wallis Simpson in Any Human Heart, and strangely enough, spoke with an English accent for the majority of the ceremony!

Check out a clip (above)!

Apparently, she's lived in London for the past few years, as well as a significant portion of her childhood, so we're not really sure whether or not she's deliberately putting it on! Maybe it was a joke?

Personally, we can't take her seriously unless she's got her Scully voice on! LOLz!

What do U think?? Was Gillian doing her best Madonna and Gwyneth??

American socialite Wallis Simpson's lingerie, purses and luggage will be up for auction later this month.

Items up for grabs on the 17th include a scarlet chiffon nightdress and a 1960s Louis Vuitton vanity case.

As you may have heard the story of Wallis and her scandalous relationship with King Edward VIII, who ultimately gave up the throne to marry her, is currently being made into a movie by Madonna.

Madge should totes buy some of this stuff!

Madonna Plans To Premiere Her Movie At Cannes!

Filed under: MadonnaFilm FlickersEvents

madonna movie to premiere at cannes

Back in September, we caught a glimpse of Madonna hard at work on her upcoming movie W.E.

Looks like the hard work paid off, because Madge plans to premiere her movie at Cannes in May.

In the meanwhile, she'll hold a private screening for "select distributors" in Berlin next month.

Madonna's movie, W.E., is about "parallel stories of the early 20th century love affair between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII and a modern romance." It stars Abbie Cornish.

We're SO excited for U, Madge! We bet you'll be a serious highlight of Cannes this year, bb!
