Madonna doesn't always take herself so seriously.

At the Venice International Film Festival premiere of W.E. Thursday, the 53-year-old Material Girl looked youthful as ever in a colorful custom-made Vionnet gown. Complete with red butterfly embellishments, the dress showed off the singer's toned arms and tiny waistline.

"I see myself as a story teller and don't see it as such a big jump from songwriter to filmmaker because in the end we are all telling stories," she said. "I am and was attracted to creative people, which is why I married Sean Penn and Guy Ritchie, who are both talented directors. They both encouraged me and were very supportive."
