Pop icon Madonna has been hard at work on the set of her upcoming romance, W.E., which tells of the love affair between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII. It seems that she must really be enjoying her time behind the camera, as she recently added a new directorial gig to her resume by accident.

Ginta Lapina told Love magazine (via Elle UK) that Madonna showed up on the set of the Miu Miu autumn/winter 2010 campaign film to meet up with famed photographers Mert Atlas and Marcus Piggott. She ended up showing the girls some moves, instead.

Lapina said, "We were supposed to shoot a video, so Madonna said she wanted to direct it. They said she could do it but they weren't going to pay her and she started laughing. She put on her iPod and taught us moves and we shot the video for two hours.
