SEE PICS: Madonna's star-studded film premiere
Premiering in New York, Filth and Wisdom is the singer’s first foray into film directing, and is a musical comedy based around the lives of three roommates in London.
Madonna arrived at the screening in what appeared to be a conservative black dress, but never one to cover up her enviable figure, it soon revealed itself to have a completely sheer skirt, flashing her toned pins beneath.
The black dress was the fashion hit of the night cropping up on many of the singer’s celebrity fans and friends.
Mirroring the Material Girl’s look, Lindsay Lohan donned a black minidress, with sheer top panel, and tumbling blonde curls.
Three more of the night’s LBD’s came courtesy of the Ugly Betty cast; America Ferrera in a simple chic shift dress, co-star Becki Newton in strapless and super-short, and Vanessa Williams flaunting her curves in a figure-hugging satin gown.
Brooke Shields added to the list, in a structural knee-length gown, with exaggerated frilled shoulders, while Jessica Alba showed off her stunning post-baby figure in a pretty prom style strappy style.
But the night wasn’t an all-noir affair. A heavily pregnant Naomi Watts proved that a baby bump would not get in the way of her style, arriving in a stunning short satin purple gown teamed with on-trend black ankle boots.
Juliette Lewis worked the red carpet in a blush pink fringed number, and Gossip
Girl Taylor Momsen scored another fashion hit with a neat grey shift and patent show boots.
