PARIS (AP) - The Material Girl is illuminating the City of Light, where she’s shooting her latest film, “W.E.”

Dressed all in black and heavily accessorized in dark shades, a hat and a patterned scarf, Madonna directed Saturday’s shoot in Paris’ tony 6th district.

The 51-year-old singer made her directorial debut in 2008 with “Filth and Wisdom,” about a Ukrainian cross-dressing punk-rocker.

Madonna is not the only U.S. star to film in the French capital this summer.

Last week, Woody Allen was shooting his “Midnight in Paris” on location near the Pantheon and in a park behind Notre Dame cathedral. The film, starring Owen Wilson, also includes a performance by France’s first lady, model-turned-singer Carla Bruni-Sarkozy.
