Who's that girl? Bedraggled Madonna gets caught in a downpour

She once had a hit single called Rain - but Madonna didn't look very happy being caught in a downpour last night in London.
The Material Girl was on location shooting her first feature length film W.E. - and must have been happy to be behind the camera for once with her uncharacteristically bedraggled look.
Sheltering under a giant complementary umbrella from the swanky Mandarin Oriental Hotel in London's upmarket Hyde Park, the soggy 52-year-old was less than her usual polished self after being caught in one of summer's biggest deluges.
Half a month's worth of rain - up to 30mm - fell last night on the capital, with 11 flood warnings along the Thames this morning - and Madge's hair seemed to have been doused in its fair share.
Madonna is quite literally calling the shots on her new movie, a two-tiered romance based on the affair between King Edward VIII and American divorcée Wallis Simpson, spliced with contemporary romance between a married woman and a Russian security guard.
Bright Star actress Cornish plays Wally Winthrop, a young married New Yorker in 1998 who is obsessed with what she perceives as the ultimate romantic love story, King Edward VIII’s abdication for his love of Wallis Simpson.
Andrea Riseborough, who recently played Margaret Thatcher in The Long Walk To Finchley, has been cast in the role of Mrs Simpson, with James D’Arcy from Secret Diary Of A Call Girl as Edward VIII.
The movie also stars British acting legend James Fox as King George V, and The Tudors star Natalie Dormer as Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, aka the Queen Mother.
