Not only does George Clooney's new wife Amal Alamuddin have degrees from Oxford and New York Universities - the accomplished, 36-year-old attorney also has one phenomenal wedding wardrobe.
Alamuddin stepped off the plane in Italy Friday in a striped Dolce & Gabbana dress. I love, love, love this option, as I'm obsessed with all hemlines midi-length. Her shades were Prada. And the hatbox was a classy touch.
A floor-length gown in deep scarlet by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen was Alamuddin's rehearsal-dinner pick. The demure silhouette featured cap sleeves and a cinched waist. Random fashion trivia: Michelle Obama wore the same red-and-black waterfall print to a 2011 state dinner.
For Saturday's ceremony at the luxurious Aman Canal Grande hotel in picture-perfect Venice, the bride chose a slightly off-the-shoulder French lace Oscar de la Renta gown. Only Oscar will do when Vogue editor Anna Wintour is a guest at your nuptials.
And I'm betting the mimosas at the post-wedding brunch weren't as divine as the cream Giambattista Valli Alamuddin wore there. The macramé embroidered petals in orchard and coral hues delicately danced on the high-low dress' bodice. Stunning.
And I'm still in awe of the off-white Stella McCartney pantsuit she wore Monday for the civil ceremony. The wide-legged trousers and hits-perfectly-at-the-waistline top is one of fashion's freshest (and might we say futuristic) silhouettes. And the floppy-brimmed chapeau - carted, we presume in that classy hatbox - was a lovely touch.
