British-born, Lebanese-by-descent human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin didn’t really tickle my fancy until her wedding weekend where she literally turned into a fashion icon overnight. Her entire persona and style just oozes class and confidence, and it seems to come very naturally to her – as apparent by the 4 looks she donned over the wedding festivities. Let’s have a look.
Amal (and George) touched down in Venice for their (DREAMY) wedding wearing a striped Dolce and Gabbana Spring 2013 midi dress which sold out immediately online. She pairs the dress up with D&G earring and sling-backs. This was a great look – understated and chic – she looks like an old Hollywood star. The hatbox is a clever little addition that just adds to the class of this look.
Amal perfectly played up to the part of Lady in Red at the rehearsal dinner. She wears an Alexander McQueen gown altered to have a high-low hem for some added drama. I never expected Amal to be a risk-taker so this look came as an amazing surprise. Red lips and glossy hair finish this look off.
Amal’s wedding dress was designed by the master himself. Oscar de la Renta worked his magic and whipped up this dreamy lace concoction with a matching veil for the big day. Honestly this dress is perfect for Amal and she looked stunning as a bride.
The day after her wedding Amal made a show-stopping appearance in this stunning Giambattista Valli gown. Giambattista is one of my favourites precisely for this reason – just look at that dress. It is beautiful, feminine, modern and intricate at the same time. And those shoes? Dying.
Um. Can you say perfection? Amal slayed the fashion world when she stepped out in this white Stella McCartney ensemble for her civil ceremony. She is statuesque, glamorous, age-appropriate and just flawless. I love this.
That is all.
