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!

Madonna Moving Back To London!

Filed under: MadonnaAnglophiliaFilm FlickersGuy Ritchie

It sounds like it — at least for a little while!

As she'll be filming her upcoming biopic about Wallis Simpson, it makes sense for Madonna to be moving back to London and she's bringing the kids with her to ex-husband Guy Ritchie's delight!

A source dishes:

"The Big Apple hasn't gone sour. M has just rediscovered her interest in Britain. She still owns her place in Marylebone and will be moving back there…She has surrounded herself in the history of the great Royal scandal and that has played a part in stoking her love of all things British once again.

"Guy is hoping the move will be permanent for his sake with the kids, though he isn't holding out much hope. He is desperate to get the kids over here and be able to see them more often."

Sounds like a good idea for their family, but we doubt Madge stays their permanently since she loves New York!

Ewan McGregor To Star In Madonna's Movie!

Filed under: MadonnaFilm FlickersEwan McGregor

Seriously?

Ewan McGregor is the latest actor to sign on to the upcoming Madonna-directed film W.E.

McGregor will play Edward VIII who abdicated the throne in 1936 to marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson. Vera Farmiga of Up In The Air has already signed on as Wallis and Abbie Cornish will be playing a "present-day" character in the vein of Julie and Julia.

Once again Madonna is DIRECTING and writing the script along with Alec Keshishian.

We absolutely adore her as a musical artist, but we're not holding our breath for a hit film — especially with her track record!

But maybe she'll prove us wrong with these casting choices? What do U think?

The Queen Of Pop Calls In A Favor From The Queen Of England!!

Filed under: MadonnaAnglophiliaFilm Flickers

Oh wow!

A bold move, even for her!!

Madonna is directing her second film, W.E. - which involves the 1936 scandal involving Edward VIII and the twice-divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson - and has written to the Queen of England for permission to shoot on location on Royal grounds!

One of Madge's associates says in a statement:

"Madonna is keen to make the film as authentic as possible and would be very grateful if we are allowed to film at certain locations. She loves the UK and holds your Queen in the highest regard."

Girlfriend probably shouldn't hold her breath, though.

A royal courtier says:

"I can't imagine that Her Majesty would make an exception, particularly for a film about Wallis Simpson."

Eh. Worth a shot, right??

Best of luck, Madge!!
