International and human rights lawyer Amal Clooney continues making the effortlessly elegant and timelessly chic choices that have elevated her to the height of today’s style icons. Nobody did it better at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Critics dubbed her the most fashion-forward guest at the royal event for her slim cut, mustard yellow Stella McCartney dress. Details of the monochromatic ensemble included a pinched square neckline, slight cap-sleeves, midi length and ankle-grazing train.
Stella McCartney is not the only A-list designer in Clooney’s arsenal. She began a fashion relationship with Giambattista Valli when she wore the designer’s amazing haute couture minidress after marrying husband George in Venice. The design of intricate floral embroidery and asymmetric hem was a memorable highlight of the weekend.
The beautiful barrister continues to showcase the Italian talent. She recently wore an oxblood jumpsuit of his design to celebrate the opening of the Giambattista Valli Couture new London boutique. The jumpsuit featured a ruffled, asymmetric top for added femininity with soft contrast provided by eyelet detailing. Metallic stilettos finished a look that was perfect for a summer’s night.
Clooney has often favored a similar fashion-forward one-piece design for evening. Case in point: the Stella McCartney romper she wore for George’s birthday dinner before the Met Gala. She kicked the classic romper up a notch on that occasion by accessorizing with a waist-cinching belt and neutral tone scrappy sandals for sophisticated polish. Clooney finished off the effect adding a gold box clutch that coordinated with the romper.
The flirty leg-baring look proved once again that Clooney isn’t afraid to be playful after hours away from the office. Her wardrobe staple at work is the skirt suit. Ladylike choices have ranged from printed Gucci dresses to suiting by Max Mara.
Another Clooney signature is a fondness for the power color red. She wore a red Max Mara suit when she stood by Yazidi refugee Nadia Murad at the United Nations. Upon her return to the United Nations after the birth of her twins, Clooney chose the bold shade again in a Bottega Veneta skirt suit. Her choice for her first Met Gala in 2015 was a stellar red ensemble from John Galliano for Maison Margiela.
Back again at the Met Gala this year as co-chair, she made her grand return in Richard Quinn’s majestic creation of silver foil strapless bustier with navy cigarette pants and dramatic floor-skimming, floral-printed train. The effect was an ethereal interpretation of this year’s theme and gala, Heavenly Bodies.
