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, we’re reminiscing about some of their best sartorial moments.
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, Italy – giving 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.
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.
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.
