When we heard that George Clooney, a.k.a. Hollywood’s most infamous bachelor, had, in fact, put a ring on it, we knew his wife-to-be must have some serious style. And over the past year Amal Clooney, a renowned international human rights lawyer, has proven that she can hold her own in the courtroom and on the red carpet. To celebrate the couple’s first wedding anniversary, were reminiscing about some of their best sartorial moments.

George & Amal Clooney's Civil Ceremony

Tying the Knot in Style
Amal sported a white flowing jumpsuit with navy trim and a chic matching floppy hat at their civil ceremony in Venice, Italygiving women everywhere permission to rock an unconventional wedding look. Playing the perfect leading man, George went for a classic grey suit that complemented (and didn’t upstage) his blushing bride.

George & Amal Clooney Met Gala 2015

Best Dressed at the Met Gala
This year’s “China: Through the Looking Glass” theme meant white tie for the guys and Asia-inspired attire for the ladies. While George was ever the dapper gentleman in his coat and tails, Amal’s controversial choice to wear a gown by headline-making designer John Galliano put her on the fashion industry’s radar – Anna Wintour herself even showed up to the fitting.

Amal Clooney Style

Not Your Average Office Wear
While George’s professional wardrobe depends on the costume for his next role, Amal’s highly respected legal position doesn’t necessarily mean a boring 9-to-5 closet. Coming from a lunch meeting, she opted for a bold Gucci top balanced by a neutral-hued midi skirt for a work look that was equal parts fun and polished.

Now it’s your turn in the spotlight. Take a cue from the dynamic duo and shop our Meet the Clooneys: Style Inspired by Amal & George Boutique, which opens Sunday, September 27, at 11AM ET.

This weekend, George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin’s wedding in Venice, Italy was one for the books. Not only did Amal manage to snap up one of the most eligible bachelors in Hollywood, but she did it with pre- and post-ceremony outfits that rival the looks at fashion week.

We’re guessing it took a small army to carry her wardrobe bags. Amal wore a black and white Dolce & Gabanna dress for the first round of canal boating on Friday, an all-over lace Giambattista Valli couture dress for another casual boating trip, a stunning Alexander McQueen red gown for a Friday night dinner, and a simple and super-chic Stella McCartney trouser suit for the civil ceremony. Yep, that’s a lot of designer fashion.

If her wedding dress is anything like the aforementioned looks, it’s going to be epic. The one thing we do know? It was designed by Oscar de la Renta. Cue the anticipation.

The jig is up: Perfection does exist. And it lives in Clark Gable‘s multi-bajillion-dollar house. Oh, and it’s a dog person.


Or at least according to Esquire‘s Tom Junod:

He has a long neck, upon which his long head, adorned by long ears, wobbles like a tulip. Everything is to scale with him. Many people have long eyelashes; he has lashes as long on the bottom as they are on the top… He has recently showered, and a careful modicum of product lifts his hair off his forehead. He has surprisingly fine hands. He smells like soap.

Okay, okay, rub it in a little more. Clearly Mr. Junod was too distracted by Clooney’s eyelashes to ask about his love life. I suppose that’s how the man of mystery wins everyone over – chivalry and charm. They’re so flattered that personal inquires seem insulting.

So until one brave soul manages to break his shell (has Oprah tried yet?), we’ll just have to settle for perfection.

Apparently… wait for it… beard transplants are trending. According to the Daily Mail, the number of men opting for a little fuzz help has upped sixfold in the past five years – a reiteration, I think, of George Clooney’s undeniable cross-gender sex appeal. Or something like that.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Movember aside (if even), no one I know would willingly get behind an aggressive amount of male facial hair. Okay, that might be an overgeneralization. But regardless, a clean shave is like a well-tailored suit: a leading factor in one’s ability to nail everything. And said clean shave depends on a few key items:
