Madonna is the Queen of Cannes

Madonna is the Queen of Cannes

Madonna (in Chanel) joins director husband Guy Ritchie and actress pal Sharon Stone at the premiere of her new film, I Am Because We Are, at the Palais des Festivals during the 2008 Cannes Film Festival on Wendesday in Cannes, France.

I Am Because We Are is a documentary written, narrated and produced by Madonna. This movie documents the concern over the millions of orphans in the African country of Malawi who have lost parents and siblings to HIV and AIDS, many of whom live on the streets. The film also shows the efforts with Madonna‘s charitable organization Raising Malawi in helping with improving their lives and conditions.

UPDATE: OH MY, THAT DRESS IS MIGHTY SEE-THROUGH. ACK! MY EYES!

  • nikomilinko
  • suh

    interesting dress.

  • nina

    She truly is the Queen. I’m from France and they are televizing her arrival LIVE. Even the head of the Cannes Film Festival was there with a camera taking pictures of her. They said that’s the first time they’ve seen that happen. French TV is going crazy over Madonna. It’s incredible.

  • marly

    Love the dress! Who’s it from?

  • nikomilinko

    the queen of cannes is Jolie

  • ReadTheLetter

    Madonna has always been the Queen of Cannes ever since her infamous 91 Red Carpet debut..

    wow nice rack Madge… totally see through

  • bejeebus

    NO NO NO NO NO and NO

  • erin

    Gross. Not even women in their 20′s should have on see-through dresses. So trashy.

  • pinkydoo

    Her husband looks thrilled to bits. I could do without seeing the nip.

  • nikomilinko

    sorry, for all the post, I thought that no upload.

  • anna
  • parisian-Boy

    I thought LA Madonna & Guy Ritchie were separated , what are they together?

  • Luiz

    Dude, so fucking hot.
    I see boobs, and thats awesome
    lol

  • johnythecrazymuthafucka

    for an old lady, she looks hot!

  • nina

    Even French TV has just annointed her the Queen of Cannes!!! They said that after 25 years, she’s still the biggest star in the world.

  • bae

    She’s gorgeous… best dress so far in cannes

  • null

    She looks great! Can’t wait to watch her concert. Sharon Stone, on the other hand, is looking a bit rough. I think it’s the hair. Guy Ritchie – LOL. Can a guy look more miserable? I hope he’ll be able to resurrect his career because Lock, Stock… and Snatch were pretty good.

  • Some chick

    The True Queen of Cannes!!

  • dionne

    the queen for sure. she looks gorgeous. and i love the dress. it’s formal but unique. europe isn’t as uptight as america so the sheer fabric works.

  • Dean

    She looks amazing. She never fails to look better and better each year

  • http://oy..... oy…

    oi…the nina & somechick are teaming up 2gether, wow!!! same as they do in jp’s thread ,now i understand . little brains are better thn none.

  • julie

    awful dress… she’s got money, but not style

  • lilyanne

    Somehow the dress works for Madonna. She has never been shy and demure. She knows exactly what she is doing and I admire her uniqueness. I do like her hair and make up with the dress.

    Is Sharon Stone riding the Madonna fame train?!

  • http://oy..... oy…

    just one last thing , well see who gathered much accolades, attentions, awards and the winner rips it all… i bit u , tht ‘s the real queen of cannes .

  • julie

    AWFUL dress

  • lilyanne

    If body language counts for anything, Madonna looks happier when Guy is not by her side. Guy looks likes he’d rather be anywhere else and they don’t come across as the “happy couple”. She looks happier with Sharon. LOL.

  • http://oy..... oy…

    ohh…forgot , i noticed if nina & somechick noticed tht guy guy richie looks like bored, not smiling like he don’t even want to be there?…why no comments as such?….does it mean tht only applies to the jp’s ?…..becoz they were truly sensational right now?…

  • Mike

    love her…not the dress….

  • nina

    Hey oy,
    What’s up with you, why are you getting mad and so defensive. If you think Angelina Jolie is the Queen of Cannes, then so be it. I love Brangelina to death too. But I’m just reporting what French TV is saying. It’s not a competition. Madonna is Madonna and Angelina is Angelina. They’re both beautiful & exceptional human beings.

  • lilyanne

    #33 Nina, I agree.

    Variety is the spice of life. There is room for more than one Queen in the Cannes Kingdom!

  • Jo

    ew Gross

  • lola

    She looks like Gwyneth

  • nina

    Hey oy,

  • Ingrid

    She is the queen, fúck Angelina Jolie. She’s accomplished more than her.

  • leni

    The dress is trashy. You can see treads hanging off the bottom dress. Clean cut dress would be appropriate for a movie premier.

  • Some chick

    I’ve never commented on whether or not I think Brad is happy in his marriage by the way he looks when in public. I would not assume I could tell just by looking. Nor do I think you can assume he’s happy for the same reason. Again, I think it bears reminder…YOU DON’T KNOW THESE PEOPLE.

    Pretty much the only things I have said about Jolie were things she’s said about herself. Sorry you don’t like it.

    And as for “teaming up” with Nina, I don’t have time for that crap. And the time I’m spending responding to your insults is wasted. I really wish I could stop. But you’re such a bully.

  • lilyanne

    leni #39

    I have never seen Madonna in a “clean cut dress”. If she would appear in a “safe” dress, it just wouldn’t be Madonna. She has always pushed the envelope for “shock value”.

  • nina

    More from French TV. A very popular show here had Madonna live just after the screening. The show was aleady ending but they still aired the interview. First time i see the show ending almost 10 minutes late…ever. And again they repeated that Madonna is the Queen of Cannes.

  • jane

    Omg Jolie fans are so jealous, get a life.

    Madonna is the Queen period. Nobody not even Jolie will reach her status so accept the reality.

  • baby

    Some of you Angelina Jolie fans are so paranoid. You think anyone who is beautiful or doing charity or adopting a child or have beautiful kids are in competition with Angelina. You trash Madonna, Gwyneth, Tom Cruise or anyone you think is in competition with Brangelina. Angelina has been a superstar for 3 years. Madonna has been a superstar for more than 25 f***ing years and still going strong. She is also the most famous woman in the world and the biggest female in music in history.

  • Dieter

    I want Madonna to give me a valium shot in the butt while I´m licking sharon´s hot pooper because I am a naughty boy !!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Adoring Fan

    That dress is nothing short of atrocious. But then, she has never had much fashion sense.

  • lilyanne

    There is not much comparison between Angie and Madonna. We certainly can’t lump them together because they both adopted children from Africa!!! For the most part they are from two different industries. They will never be up for the same movie role or sing the same music. They are both popular and have their own fan bases. Madonna is almost old enough to be Angie’s mum (sorry Madonna, I’m closer to your age so I feel it, too) and therefor has a different following and has had more time to add up the accomplishments. Can’t we celebrate two great women without coming to blows ?!

    The things they do have in common are that they are both “worldly” , independent, and intelligent women. Neither lives her life in private. I bet it could be done but they choose to be in the limelight. Their fans are “fanatic” and think they “know” them personally and will defend them to the bitter end. Kind of silly if you think about it. All any of us truly know about them is what they choose to tell us or what their publicity people spin for us.

  • Nathalie

    She is ugly, the dress is ugly.

  • null

    I’m a fan of both Angelina and Madonna. I, for one, am thrilled that they are both there and making waves. It doesn’t have to be an either/or thing. As someone already said, they are from two different industries – Madonna = music (sorry, I know she tries to act, but no dice), Angelina = film, and they’re both excellent in what they do.

  • gigi

    I think there is no bigger fashion icon in the world today than Madonna. Just ask Jean Paul Gautier, Dolce & Gabbana, Donatella Versace, Stella McCartney, Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Lacroix, the House of Gucci & Louie Vuitton. They not only dress her, they’re inspired by her. And that’s because Madonna doesn’t go for what is stylish and classic, She goes for what is Madonna. Edgy, sexy and strong.
