Amal Clooney And Sideshow George ~ One Year And Counting

On yesterday’s flight home from Australia I was reading 
Grazia Magazine‘s article about Amal and her ‘arm candy’ George. 
All the newsstands had pictures of her killing it in a green Versace dress this week, and there was also mention of their one year wedding anniversary.
I can imagine these two going the distance. He always seems both in absolute awe of her, and as though he is endlessly chasing her to keep her interested in him.

I just love Amal. Quite apart from the fact that she is brilliant and accomplished and is at the top of her international game in a non show biz career, she has a flawless sense of style. Personally I think she is already becoming iconic.

I also love that George (The Chairman) is so completely eclipsed by her. In any photo of the two of them your eye is immediately drawn to her. Every time I see them I think “it’s Amal and Sideshow George“. 
But don’t you just love how proud he looks? One year on and he still looks as though he can’t quite believe he actually got her. 

Interestingly she also manages to steal the spotlight from Cindy Crawford in any photograph, even though Cindy has spent 30+ years training our eyes to land directly on her.
The Gerbers and the Clooneys spend so much time together – do you ever wonder what Cindy and Amal talk about? Amal is fashion. I can’t imagine her being overly interested in talking about it endlessly. Who knows, maybe Cindy can talk human rights and international politics?

Anyway, here is a quick look at what Amal has been wearing this week.

Goodbye Oscar de la Renta

Just last week I wrote a blogpost archiving some of designer Oscar de la Renta’s magnificent moments in Vogue Magazine.(linked here)

“My job as a designer is to make a woman feel her very best”
Oscar de la Renta


Yesterday I was terribly saddened to hear of his passing at age 82.

Dominican born Oscar de la Renta spent half a century dressing the most glamorous women in the world.
De la Renta apprenticed for Cristobal Balenciage in Spain, and then Lanvin and Balmain in Paris before launching his own line in 1965.

An arbiter of style and timeless elegance, de la Renta’s gowns were both a fixture on the red carpet, and also at the White House. He  was the only designer to have dressed every first lady from Jacqueline Kennedy to Michelle Obama.


More recently he designed the wedding dress of George Clooney’s bride, Amal Alamuddin.

Never one to fall into the extremism of the fashion industry, 
De la Renta famously said “I’m not interested in shock tactics. I just want to make beautiful clothes”.



And how incredibly beautiful his clothes always were.

Recently he helped Vogue editor Anna Wintour in her efforts to rehabilitate the career of fashion genius John Galliano. ( read about it here)

The passing of Oscar de la Renta is a major loss to the fashion industry, and to women all over the world who love beautiful clothes.
