Amal Alamuddin wears a custom Alexander McQueen in Venice: stunning?


The Wedding of the Year/Decade/Century hasn’t happened yet. But it will happen soon. Within the next few hours, I’m guessing. For now, we have these lovely photos of George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin partying last night in Venice. Partying… separately. You see, Amal and George did their separate bachelor and bachelorette parties last night, I’m guessing just after the rehearsal dinner.

For the special night, Amal wore a customized Alexander McQueen gown in red and black. It’s a mullet dress! Short in front with a long-ass train. This is actually a McQueen design, not a Sarah Burton design. McQueen was doing those insect-exoskeleton-like designs shortly before his passing. And, as always, Amal’s hair looked blow-out perfect. She’s a slender little thing, isn’t she? She’s also giving me Elisabetta Canalis vibes in these pics.

Some other little details about last night & the wedding festivities:

*Everybody is rolling through Venice in water taxis, which have all ben personalized with little “AG” flags to denote that particular taxis are for Amal & George’s wedding party. Still, the paparazzi are rolling in water taxis too, and it got so bad that there was a traffic jam last night.

*Celebrity guests include Anna Wintour, Matt Damon and Luciana, John Krasinski & Emily Blunt and George’s best man, Rande Gerber, plus Rande’s wife Cindy Crawford.

*Amal’s hen party was held on the second floor of the Aman Hotel: “They dined on the second floor. There were candles on a terrace overlooking the Grand Canal. Gondolas were parked up outside the venue, and one of the gondoliers even serenaded them from the water!”

*George and his bros partied at Da Ivo: “They arrived around 9.30 p.m. and dined amongst other patrons. They didn’t leave until 12:30 a.m., when George’s driver pulled up in a grand taxi boat to pick them up. There was a crowd of well-wishers who cheered loudly when George came out. He flashed a beaming smile and saluted everyone who was there, it was very sweet.”

*E News also said last night that George is having some last-minute jitters. HA!

*George is reportedly really pleased that his dad, Nick Clooney, is there. A source says: “George more than most things, is excited to have his father, whom he has so much respect for, be there to see his wedding along with his mother. Having them there is tremendously important.”

*This is probably my favorite horsesh-t quote: “George wants to make sure Amal is comfortable and to be honest she’s not comfortable with all the attention, that’s not the kind of the girl that she is and that’s why George loves her. They want something fun, a party, but don’t want it to be a spectacle so that her family is comfortable.” Blowout, please!!! YOU LIE!

    my god, I’m slowly discovering how much of a fame whore she is!!! Look at the way she search for the cameras and how she likes all the attention, she loves this fame game!!!

    • Megan says:

      Seriously, she is posing harder than Lea Michele in these pics.

      • Katherine says:

        That poor dear. She must have to have that hair blown out every day to tame it.
        Love the dress. These things and more will all be at her disposal from now on. She’s one smart cookie.

    • Melly says:

      You wouldn’t marry one of the biggest celebrities in the world if you didn’t like the fame

      • Sabrine says:

        So, who cares if she’s posing and loving the attention. It’s her day/weekend. She can pose all she wants to. Good for her.

        She looks lovely in red. The black design is a bit strange. It looks like a masked demon. Her hair is gorgeous.

      • SuePerb says:

        +1 Sabrine.
        Imagine the hoo-ha if she flipped the photographers the bird told them to f-off?

        I don’t know one bride who wasn’t walking on air during wedding celebrations; ok, maybe Princess Charlene who married Prince Albert II of Monaco

      • Stef Leppard says:

        Is there a bride who doesn’t love attention during her wedding?? She looks gorgeous and wants to show off. So what? She seems pretty low-key in her regular life.

      • aqua says:

        +3 She’s having the wedding of her dreams, and she should be enjoying it. It all goes by much too quickly.

      • Chris2 says:

        Sabrine et al
        Yes, who’d blame her for enjoying this? It must be a blast. (Seeking out cameras? Surely more likely responding to hearing her name called.)
        There’s such juvenile begrudgery about her new position. If I were she I’d try to be as unbothered as possible, and mince about, dazzlingly!i I think she’s playing a blinder, good for her.

        This dress……yuck for my taste, though she looks fab, but blimey she can wear the whole spectrum of fashion, from Cavalli excess to Armani sobriety….isn’t that rare?
        (Wouldn’t it be smashing if the Jolie-Pitts were there? Angelina and Amal, wow.)

      • Stephanie says:

        There are plenty of brides who don’t like the attention. I was one, but I have heard it from others as well. It just depends on your personality. I would marry a celebrity if I fell in love with them, but would have made damn sure that at least the ceremony was private. Just something tiny so it wasn’t a spectacle.

      • FLORC says:

        Amal isn’t just doing this because it’s her wedding approaching and she wants to soak it in. She’s been doing this since her name was attached to Clooney. And it’s being done in a way to heavilly suggest Clooney’s camp is releasing and staging bits for publication and promotion.

        Also, this isn’t just any actress/fame hungry person. She’s packaged and sold to us as a serious lawyer. Highly educated and not even close to George’s past fame hugry gfs. Only she is exactly that. Only she has a better education.

        That’s why this behavior brings criticism. She’s not the package being sold and she wants the attention. Not simply appreciating the attention without a feel of entitlement to it.

    • briargal says:

      She’s eating up the attention like a cat lapping up cream! Everyone is right–she has turned into a famewhore before our very eyes!!

      • Anne tommy says:

        She may eat Attention but doesn’t look as if She eats much else- a bit Thin Perhaps ( random caps syndrome at work )

      • Chammy says:

        Pre- and post-wedding glow.

        I think she should be given some more time to get back to “normal”. And I hope she gains some weight.

      • joy says:

        And she’s had subtle but glamorous makeover I think also. She’s slowly seeming more attractive all the time. I’m shocked this site isn’t ripping her for not pulling her hair back they way they do the duchess of sausage curls.

    • Feebee says:

      Agree here. I looked at the photos and thought that I’m surprised at the publicness of all this. It feels stage managed in a much bigger and obvious way than George ever rolled with in the past if he bothered at all. And I look at Amal and thought, oh it’s all for her, look at her go, this is her thing, this is why it is like this. Then I read the comment about her not being comfortable with the attention… ?? No, words and pictures do not add up here. That is not a woman uncomfortable with the attention, because if she is, stick her in a movie cos she’s giving Meryl Streep a run for her money.

    • Eve says:

      I agree, she really is loving all the media attention and celebrity lifestyle that comes from being Mrs Clooney, in fact her all family seems to like it as well. As for her looking stunning, I for one certainly don’t think so, I am sorry but she looks too skinny, too mannish and too below average from the face to come off as stunning in anyway, might be a bit harsh of me saying it but the media and a lot of people seem to throw the word stunning far too easily these days. I am not a fan of Clooney at all, never seen the appeal of him and I think Amal is above his league on the high achievement intellectual/educational level (although he likes to think of himself as intellectually worldly), with her being a barrister and him just an actor (although a very successful one at that), but on purely appearance wise I think Amal is one of the least attractive partners he’s had (not that I think he is anything special, especial at his age now).

    • Eleonor says:

      Oh please: she is THE BRIDE, it’s her big day, she has the right to glow and enjoy all the attention she gets.

    • Fue McCormick says:

      Doesn’t like the attention? Bwaa-haa-haa! She probably spent the entire day in an orgasmic state. What a load of horse-sh*t!

    • Adrien says:

      Fame-ho? She’s well-known in her field. She’s an accomplished woman and I say, even higher status than Clooney, no way in the level of Mrs. Baldwin.

  2. Frida_K says:

    The color is gorgeous on her and her hair, OMG, her HAIR!

    In spite of being a mullet dress, it is pretty on her.

    Problemo: in the second to the last photo, the one with her mom and friends? The pattern on the front looks like a rendering of what I see in my anatomy textbooks. Anyone who has seen anatomical drawing of structures in a textbook will agree I think. To wit: the black tubular structure at the bottom of the pattern on the front of her dress looks like either the descending colon or the vag_i_na.

    • mimif says:

      Hm. I was thinking it looked like some sort of locust, but your interpretation is much more amusing.

      • Kiddo says:

        Are you penning their wedding song yet?

      • mimif says:

        I am a candle in the wind compared to you in that department, Kiddo. I’m more of a rocket propelled potato launcher crafter myself, I just need Jaderu to show up because she’s got all my ammo.

        Wait, is it Saturday? And does it hate you?

      • Kiddo says:

        It does, but I did get some stuff done and stayed up, so it doesn’t hate me as much as I hate potato people.

      • mimif says:

        How can you write that? Are you familiar with the utterly fascinating history of the humble papa? I mean, this isn’t just some random nightshade plant that American celebrities chose to have at their celebratory luncheon to make them seem more classier and high end. This is the f-cking potato* we are talking about for Chrissakes.

        *Jaderu, this is all your fault and there will be retribution.

      • Angie says:

        I have no idea what you guys are talking about, but it sounds hilarious anyway.

  3. PunkyMomma says:

    It’s a gorgeous dress. And she totally gives me the Canalis vibe.

    • Kiddo says:

      I read that as “cannabis vibe”. I might actually like it better if I still smoked pot. I like the concept, but the results are leaving me a bit cold. I don’t like the sleeves and the pattern reminds of a multiplied Rorschach blot or as @Frida_K above says ^ anatomical diagrams or cross sectionals.

      What’s going on with her arm in the top shot, did someone put it on backwards?

      ETA: Kaiser, lol
      Hen party? Peck peck peck.

      • Zainab says:

        I think I’ll need a joint to get thru this showedding.

        I’m suffering from Train Wreck Syndrome …. I can’t look away from the inevitable calamity.

      • Kiddo says:

        I’m procrastinating.

      • mimif says:

        Her arm in that pic is decidedly not comfortable with all the attention.

      • Suzanne says:

        She looks double jointed there in that one her arm IS on backwards. Glad I’m not the only one who noticed that! She does that weird chest forward, arms back thing like a chicken…most of the time…and her hands seem really odd in most shots of them too. Cartoonish like…the bend weirdly. Who knows. I think she’s gorgeous…so many say they don’t think she’s pretty. Hell, I ‘d like to look that NOT PRETTY. ..any day. George definitely likes women with lots of dark hair and this one wins the prize! Lets hope this one lasts!

      • FLORC says:

        She often holds her hand that way and is in motion. Her gesture in that quick moment isn’t enough to counter all of the evidence she seeks out the cameras.

        It’s like saying Amal clearly never opens her eyes when a cameras snaps a shot of her mid blink.

    • PunkyMomma says:

      I’d like to change the Canalis vibe I cited earlier. This wedding harkens back to the old Aristotle Onassis/Maria Callas circuses. You know, creepy bent up old guy with tons of money hot after dark haired beauty, all happening with Italy as the backdrop. Amal reminds me of Callas appearance wise, even though she is trying to channel Jackie O with the shades. JMO. (Canabis, anyone?)

  4. Melly says:

    Gorgeous dress. I really don’t like her and I don’t know why.

  5. CentralParkSouth says:

    Kaiser’s favorite horsesh!t quote is the best: “To be honest she’s not comfortable with all the attention…” O RLY? George and his PR people totally aim for the ‘you can fool some of the people all of the time’ segment of the population with their constant BS and they are especially try hard in searching for their core demographic with this crazily overly staged fameho wedding fiasco. Unreal.

  6. Miss M says:

    She got very thin like canalis did and she got canalis haircut too. Gorgeous hair!

    I can’t wait for the marriage of the equals happen. Then, I can speculate when it ends.

  7. Laura says:

    She looks absolutely stunning. The dress is amazing and her hair is almost awe inspiring; she just seems so skinny to me! I’m not trying to body shame though, she’s been slim since we’ve seen her – but the concerned mother in me wants her to eat some pasta!

    • SideEye Sally says:

      OMG! She is really greyhound-thin.

    • Charlie says:

      I think she looke great, but the makeup is too harsh for her, IMO. The shade of her lipstick also seems wrong.

      • norah says:

        too much makeup for the night nothing natural and the dress not nice – emily blunt and luciana look so pretty –

    • SnarkGirl says:

      She’s a beautiful woman, but she’s venturing into the “too thin” zone I think. It’s making her look like a collection of angles and hard lines.

      To each their own of course, but I think she was much prettier before leaning down so much.

    • Abby says:

      I agree. Pasta baby on the honeymoon!

      I came down here to say OMG her hair. If that’s all hers, I’m jealous. She has incredible hair.

    • Katherine says:

      I said it above but don’t be too envious of her hair. It looks good in the end but that type of coarse hair requires a lot of maintenance – probably daily blow outs which she can now well afford without leaving home.

      It may seem mean to speculate on divorce but they are sorta asking for public attention. They barely know each other and they barely spent much time together during the past year and less time before the engagement. It’s easy to put on your “please marry me” facade for short periods of time and when you’re on fabulous vacations. The high and excitement from a new relationship and the anticipation of a wedding can carry you along for quite a while. The true test will be when they settle into their routines – and everyone has one no matter how exciting their lives may seem. If I were pressed to give a due date on the marriage – I’d say 5 years and even longer before there was any public acknowledgement of its demise. Of course there is a prenup no matter what is later “leaked” and Clooney knows ahead of time what any damage would be to his assets.

      Their saving grace will be, if they encounter trouble in the marriage, that they have the means to afford themselves escape valves of living apart in different cities for what will appear to be valid reasons. I do hope they are happy and enjoy what ever time they share together.

  8. HH says:

    I saw these pics on the dailymail last night and you can’t tell me she’s not loving the attention. Moving forward, George and Amal better not even mention the word privacy after this spectacle of a wedding.

  9. Zainab says:

    I too call bullsh-t on not liking the attention. Amal never looks the least bit shy or uncomfortable with all the cameras around.

    If Clooney wanted to keep his shy bride comfortably hidden, they shouldn’t have married in such a showy way.

    PS. George looks drunk. Hope he doesn’t have a hangover today.

    • chick b. says:

      I think he looks like a drunk Adam Arkin.

    • wolfpup says:

      I think that she is stunningly beautiful almost everytime I see her, and George is the lucky one! This wedding is very nice, and a gift from her parents. Is it wrong that she smiles and enjoys her party on *her wedding day*?

      • OhDear says:

        I know, right? I get that people think that the rollout of this relationship is weird, but I really don’t get why people dislike her so much. She’s intelligent, accomplished and attractive, and she hasn’t been reported to be rude, unkind, etc. If she wasn’t smiling people would be talking about how she has an attitude problem.

  10. pretty says:

    why do these American celebrities marry in some random European countries? brangelina and clooney.. do they view having a wedding in European countries as more classier and high-end?

    • lisa2 says:

      I don’t think Italy or France is a “random” country for either. Both have homes in the places they married. I don’t think it is any different than the people that marry in different locations than they live.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Amal is not American. She lives in one of those “random European countries.” I have to say, your remark really rubs me the wrong way, “pretty.”

      • Kiddo says:

        You’re full of sass, piss and vinegar today. I like it, it’s cracking me up.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Maybe I need to go back to bed, but it’s just too early for condescending, uniformed comments. These “random” countries have centuries of history and culture and beauty on us. But why would any American want to go there? When we, like, have America? Is it “more classier?” Lol. Maybe I’ll put some rum in my next coffee.

      • Kiddo says:

        Oh, I thought maybe you already had one. :0. Is this dress from the Just Yikes!™ collection?

      • Bridget says:

        GNAT is just jealous because she wishes her wedding was more classier.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Ok, I apologize for being rude. There is never, well almost never, any excuse for being rude. Even if you’ve had some rum coffees and are jellie wishers your wedding was more classier. My bad.

      • Kiddo says:

        @Bridget, GNAT’s wedding would be the epitome of more classier amazingly. She designs the Just Yikes!™ collection along with SJP. Nathan Lane would be setting rose petals down before her feet set forth on a path.

      • mimif says:

        I think you should be rude more often, GoodNames. I’m not going to write that you’re good at it, because I don’t want you to think I’m rude, but at least you’re articulately rude. Unlike some potato haters around here (cough).

        *chugs rum*

      • InarticulatelyrudeKiddo says:

        I’m trying out a new name. What do you think? I just want to say that *I’m more than a little disappointed that not one of you bitches mentioned the FRANCO. *(inarticulately rude comment)
        ** (flagged my own comment as offensive and abuse)

      • mimif says:

        What’s FRANCO got to do, got to do with it?
        What’s FRANCO but a sweet old fashioned notion. (Ooooh)

        *reports Kiddo for reporting under multiple usernames and harassing people into divulging sensitive information that could get them banned*

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Hmm…I have a real weakness for compliments, I’m ashamed to say. Good at being rude is not one I would pick, but what the FRANCO it had articulate in there, so…thank you!

        Another rum coffee, please. Hold the coffee.

    • Altariel says:

      Yes, it is more exotic for them…as if America isn’t posh enough. Fine, then the Brangies and the Amalooneys can just stay away.

      • Bridget says:

        I sincerely doubt either couple finds the location of their wedding “exotic” – the Brange got married in their home, and not only has Clooney kept a home in Italy for many years (perhaps you’ve heard about his Como house once or twice) but his soon-to-be wife isn’t even an American.

    • chick b. says:

      I think its due to – in part – the same reasons celebrities like Clooney and Pitt take endorsement deals overseas. They’re mostly concerned about how their image is portrayed in the U.S. than any other area, and the foreign press is a little more coddling (depending on the outlet).

    • Toot says:

      Angelina and Brad actually got married at their place, so I don’t understand the issue with them. George, just wants a big ass show.

      • wolfpup says:

        This is the party her parents created, and aren’t we lucky to watch the display? I think that it’s a glorious party, longer than the royal wedding, and better than just photos after the fact, from Brad & Ang.

      • hmmm says:

        I wonder if some of it can be a tax write off as ‘business’?

    • Jaded says:

      Brangelina have a home in France. Amal is from Lebanon. If I were to characterize a country as being “random” I’d have to say Albania or Uzbekistan, not Italy or France.

      Dumb comment award of the day goes to you.

      • Charlie says:

        Well, to me your comment sounds more snobbish that pretty’s.

      • Eve says:

        I think the dumb comment of the day award goes to you too Jaded. First of all Albania is one of the oldest European countries with lots of history and culture and has beautiful Mediterranean beaches and climate (that sits next to Greece and right opposite of Italy) to add and although it’s small and not many people know a lot about it because of it’s reclusiveness, it certainly is not more “random” then any other country.

      • mimif says:

        Whoa, who dropped a duece in the punch bowl? I thought we were here to celebrate the most glorious wedding of the century, not rip each other to shreds.

        *prepares potato launcher*

      • InarticulatelyrudeKiddo says:

        Was trying really hard to win Dumb Comment, *(says sniveling-ly)*, but as runner-up, I fake smile while hugging the winner, with a concealed potato shank in my pocket.

      • mia girl says:

        And here I thought the Dumb Comment award was mine for dubbing the weekend the “AmalGemation” down thread.

        “Gretchen – Stop trying to make AmalGemation happen. It’s not going to happen”

      • mimif says:

        AmalGemation should get like the Mensa award for brilliance. Everyone around here is too dumb snobby and random to even get how amazingly your wordsmith capabilities are. 😀

        *we are going to make this happen if I have to launch every last potato I have!

      • Kiddo says:

        OMG, this comment “Whoa, who dropped a duece in the punch bowl?” gave me tears in my eyes, I can’t stop laughing.

      • mimif says:

        So basically what you’re saying is that you reported my comment as rude, offensive, random & spammy.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Pretty, who wrote: “why do these American celebrities marry in some random European countries? brangelina and clooney.. do they view having a wedding in European countries as more classier and high-end?”

      Random European countries? George Clooney has had a Villa–Villa Oleandra–in Lake Como, Italy since the early 2000’s, and he actually lives there most of the year. He owned it when they shot much of the “Ocean’s Twelve” film (yes, all of those interior and exterior Villa scenes of the Night Fox’s home were actually filmed in George’s Villa) there.

      Likewise, Mr. and Mrs. Pitt were married in the Chapel on their Chateau Miraval Estate, not some random site in European picked to impress. That’s why they were able to keep their pre-wedding plans under wrap … well, that and by not inviting Angie’s big mouthed father.

      I mean, you have the right to shade whomever you want, but the two couples you’re shading for picking a ‘place to impress’ with their weddings, didn’t. Both couples actually own property and occasionally live in the countries were they were wed.

      • mia girl says:

        I agree. I think these two couples are not AT ALL good examples of picking a location to impress others.

        Now, if this were a Kim and Kanye thread, or back in the day Tom and Katie… maybe @pretty’s comment would make more sense.

    • Kiddo says:

      Rough crowd. I feel like I should preemptively flag my own comments as spam.

      • lisa2 says:

        These people travel all over the world.. for work and pleasure. They have been to almost every local.. so exotic is a random comment really. That would applicable if they never traveled and never went anywhere.

      • Sugar1 says:

        i am scared to even comment for I am defenseless if attacked no potatoe ammo in my house but I have cannabis;)

      • MariPoodle says:

        Kiddo wins.

    • sigh((s)) says:

      I always thought more celebs did that because of more stringent pap laws? Especially in France.

  11. Nev says:

    I wanna see pics of the hotness that is Cindy. C please!!!!!!

  12. Anniefannie says:

    George has jitters? While that maybe true, in the photo of the hen party, note the death-like grip she has on the boat rail. Girlfriend has some pent up anxiety too!

  13. jane16 says:

    She looks gorgeous. Even her mother & sister look pretty, although I don’t like their dresses as much as Amal’s. My Italian in-laws are in a tizzy over it and keep texting us every little thing they hear. This is certainly the extravaganza of the year. Oh, Steve Lukather is there! One of our favorite guitarists.

  14. mimif says:

    Her nail color is disturbing to me.

    • Kiddo says:

      I think it probably matches her wedding gown. It looks weird with the red dress.

      • mimif says:

        Hm. I don’t know. It’s too Real Wives for my taste, perhaps distracting was the word I was looking for. Like, did you really just white-out your nails? So many questions, so much cannabis.

      • Kiddo says:

        Yeah, it might even be Jersey Shore.
        I think ‘people’s parties’ would probably be a good starting point for lyrics. George looks like a deer in headlights. Her thumb looks double jointed in the 3rd photo down. She has a death grip on that table. I vote for George wearing the lampshade crown, he’s already pissed and needs to hold someone’s hand to get down, but is clutching that drink like his life depended on it.

      • mimif says:

        I told you when I met you I was crazy….

        oops that’s already been taken 😉

      • Kiddo says:

        @ mimif, You have to finish it , here’s the start: (here’s the lyrics page

        All the people at this party
        they got a lotta style
        they got tramps from many countries
        they got white-out tiles
        some are hen-ly
        dress patterns from cuttings
        made of insect wings
        some are standing in the center
        holding hands, to avoid drownings.

        photo beauty gets attention
        and her boyfriend looks rundown
        he’s got a motive for this underneath
        acting like an attention clown
        one minute he’s yappy
        when he used to have a privacy plea
        now he’s saying, “Amal’s his equal”
        everyone else, “Come on, George, oh please”.

    Her thumb in the second to last picture is freaking me out. I didn’t even know you could do that with your thumb. I just tried, and I definitely cannot.

    • Kiddo says:

      Try harder, Sarah. lol

        I’m impressed that Sarah even had the gumption to try. Imagine explaining that one to your doc, “No really, I was on this gossip blog and this uncomfortable with fame chick with a violent Rorschach dress and white-out nails was amazingly pressing her thumb into a people’s parties table and…”

        Sorry you broke your thumb, Sarah. Cannabis helps.

    Something super weird is going on with the perspective/angle in the top photo. Or has it been shopped together badly from multiple shots?

  17. mia girl says:

    Her dress is very pretty – great color.

    While there are no pictures here, the dress I really loved from last night’s AmalGemation events was Luciana Damon’s. She looked amazing.

  18. Louise says:

    My husband is Lebanese. I know the culture very well. Her family will be loving the wedding and attention. Lebanese are brought up to believe that their wedding is the most important day of their lives. They have bigger productions than American weddings. An average wedding in Lebanon for a “normal” family is USD100K. They will bankrupt themselves for a wedding because it is about showing off, social standing, prestige and outdoing every wedding you have ever been to. Look how happy her mother is – it says it all. This is beyond a dream for her. So this does not surprise me.

    Amal looks completely stunning. Come on, she does! so she’s happy and enjoying it. Good for her! she landed him. Khalas!

    • Withheld says:

      Well I think she is stunning in her own kind of way, but she’s not barbie doll pretty like he’s opted for in the past which is another weird thing about all this.

      If it’s true love then that’s absolutely wonderful and I hope they have many happy years together; but from what I heard it took a fair amount of time to get the pre-nuptial agreement nailed (she wanted a HUGE amount should it fail which he kept saying no to, only to eventually give in), which is not a good omen.

      • wolfpup says:

        Good for her! Women need strong boundaries. We are worth it – and she let George know that for sure by the prenup. I kind of don’t like him, because of his arrogant way with women, and I hope Amal has put a nose ring on him, and will pull the chain when needed. George should no longer be the power broker in a relationship. He needs to know his place.

  19. Santolina says:

    Please let this phony, circus sideshow be over, soon.

    Fabulous dress. Amazing hair. Scary arms.

  21. Olenna says:

    Thanks, again, Ladies, for another day of great comments! I thought I couldn’t wait until this wedding was over, but your take on this dog & pony show has been one hellava hilarious ride. So, now I’m hoping this marriage is the union that keeps on giving, and giving, and giving!

    • wolfpup says:

      I’m enjoying the show, but like you, I hope that that they will continue gratifying us with endless story.

  22. Withheld says:

    There’s something very strange going on. George has openly said many, many times in the past how he’d never get married again; then within what – a year? – engaged … just like that! And he’s also usually at paints to keep his private life private. Not so now; in fact, he looks like he’s lapping up the attention (and I’m sure if he wanted to keep the paps away, he would’ve been able to have guards block off sections of the canal so they couldn’t get their shots).

    Something’s up. I have an idea what it might be, but will get blocked if I dare to speculate.

    • norah says:

      actually less than a year – he was engaged and due to marry. i mean engaged ok but getting married so quickly

    • Someonestolemyname says:

      I’ve felt that since the announcement, something is murky in all of this, which may be revealed in one way or another at some point, but it’s just too Tom Cruise/Kardashian behavior for George.
      Amal looks just as famewhorish as the previous women he dated, she’s loving the press attention, but They don’t look deeply in love with each other, their interactions with each other seem awkward and almost play acting.

      There is a murky vibe to all of this.

      P.S. Some rumors are floating , that she locked down a $20Million prenup, but George did NOT want to go that high, his cut off point was $10 To $12Million. Amal fought hard and closed the deal at $20Million.
      Sounds like a contract IMO……I wonder if she has to stay a certain number of years to get the $20Million?
      The rumors are that a few weeks ago when reports surfaced that George was getting cold-feet, that was the problem, he didn’t want to go as high as $20Million on the prenup, but she held firm.

      • wolfpup says:

        I think that George wanted to rush the wedding because he was afraid Amal would back out, and he wanted to lock it down before she got to know him better.

      • claire says:

        I don’t get the famewhore thing. Everyone was fine with her and pleased she was a smart working lady. Then all the attention is on her, she’s happy and appeasing to his fans and press, and suddenly she’s a famewhore. If she wasn’t being pleasant and happy (it’s her wedding, you’re supposed to be beaming), or was being shy and hiding from press, people would call her sullen, or bitchy or who knows what else. Seems like people just can’t be pleased and have to find something to knock her down about.

    • Isadora says:

      I agree, there’s something murky. When they started dating I thought it’s great that she’s someone different than his previous “girlfriends” and then then engagement happened so fast. It was peculiar, especially for someone like George Clooney, but whatever… love happens and stuff like that. But now this shotgun wedding and in that fashion, no. Really, I’m not a Clooney fan so I haven’t followed him closely, but he always seemed like a rather private guy (at least more private than other people in Hollywood) and not keen on having a family and all that. And now the public declarations of love, the short time frame, the talk about no prenup, the Kanye-like wedding… Something shady is going on. I just wonder that they don’t realise how much they overdo it.

      • serena says:

        George is the one famewhoring all the way, not Amal (although I think she is VERY pleased by the attention). Still, I believe there’s something shady too.
        First of all it was all too strage, coming from the very serious-private George, to act like he did.. almost couch-jumping like Tom Cruise at times.
        Also marrying her that fast? Shady.

  23. Sartte says:

    Yes – it’s all so phony and stupid. George is a bore and she is a fame hore.
    Does cLoony really think he’s going to be a successful politician? Lol.

  24. summer_daze says:

    Ok, I’m going to be “that person”…. There is something very off-putting about this whole thing. Usually, Clooney’s relationships are amusing, seem fairly fun and beyond that, good for him/her. This is…..I don’t know. Yes, she’s pretty (although I think her extreme slenderness makes her sharp features look terribly severe), but the pictures of them look…off. I’m articulating this poorly, I know, I just get a very uncomfortable vibe from the whole thing.

    • Isadora says:

      I think I know what you mean. For me it’s that Clooney just doesn’t seem himself anymore. She is practically a blank slate, nobody knew her before, but he was always … well… George Clooney. The guy who had a nice career, but lived in Italy to avoid all the Hollywood bling, who loved his freedom and random pretty starlets. Maybe he was a bit smug and not as funny as he himself thought, but that was all part of the package.

      This new Clooney however seems like an imposter. Maybe the real Clooney is already floating on the ground of Lake Como and someone else took his place to live the lavish Hollywood life and marry a pretty lawyer lol. He even looks slightly different.

      • siri says:

        I don’t think Clooney changed. What we used to see was his image, carefully fabricated by his PR over a long period. Just it made him look silly in te end, dating a new girl every second year, being over 50. So I see this as a simple image change, and he cannot wait another 10 years- it would be even less believable. The one person he truly cares about is himself, always has been that way. And of course, he takes care of the people around him serving this image change, including Amal & her family.

      • Isadora says:

        If it’s all PR then I don’t get why they rush it like that. A nice engagement with the odd outing together for the paps, the whole “changed man” routine, then a classy late summer wedding next year – after the way he has been in the past a slightly slower transition would make much more sense for his image and it hardly matters if it takes 1 or 2 years longer. Now everybody says something is fishy because it happened waaay too fast if it was a PR stunt.

      • Withheld says:

        The other girls were all contractors – contracted to do a job, which was to be a live-in ‘girlfriend’; once the contract was up then they moved on. Some got extended; others didn’t.

  25. Lee says:

    “Don’t want it to be a spectacle…”, “She’s not that kind of girl…”.

    So I guess this over-the-top wedding extravaganza was foisted on them? Against their will? They’re managing to smile through their extreme uncomfortable-ness with all this? Really, I’m shocked at their strength to endure, when all they really wanted was a private, quiet wedding, without all the chaos and paparazzi. Poor dears – so vulnerable to reluctant spectacle…I hope they’ll be able to recover.

    • Altariel says:

      Ridiculous, no?

      Clooney: ” Move along, nothing to see here, she really hates all this. Really she does. Btw, are you enjoying the non-spectacle? We’re low-key that way.”

    • kibbles says:

      Exactly. If she wasn’t that kind of girl, she would have requested that they have a secret wedding like Brangelina or just go down to city hall like Keira Knightley. There are much bigger celebrity couples who were able to keep most wedding details private and did not mug for the paps on the eve of their wedding. Amal and her family is loving every minute of this.

  26. aang says:

    I can’t see the dress, her bones are grabbing all my attention.

  27. Maggier says:

    She’s not a famewhore , she is somewhat oblivious. It dawned on me why everything may seem so odd this morning – looking at the photos.

  28. aqua says:

    Not only is Amal looking very beautiful, but so is everyone else, and I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m enjoying every minute of this. I can’t wait to see their wedding photos.I think both Amal and George will look absolutely incredible.

  29. lisa2 says:

    The wedding should be happening in the next few hours or less. I guess we won’t see pics. There were pics of George having breakfast with Randy and Cindy

    and I saw pics of Bono arriving with his wife. So I guess some of the guest are coming in today.

  30. sesame says:

    Yes, she may be Kardashian-ing the camera, but she looks bloody gorgeous in that McQueen dress!

    • wolfpup says:

      The difference between KK and Amal is that Amal is not trying to get us to think about sex when we look at her. KK is only about body parts.

  31. Jayna says:

    I have to admit that I love that dress on her. It’s very different and the color is beautiful on her. She does look glowing and softer looking than usual in the face because of it.

    The photos on Daily Mail of Matt Damon’s wife, Luciana, are great also. I have never seen Lucy look bad in a dress or gown or jeans, even after a baby. She never gets much attention on the red carpet because she’s not famous, but I have always thought she picks flattering outfits for her figure and height and skin tone.

  32. norah says:

    sorry i dont get it – why is she so badly dressed – pple like emily blunt and matt damons wife look so pretty and gorgeous – but the bride is wearing such heavy make up for the night and clooney seems pretty smashed already – the wrong vibe is wrong imo – means that brad and angelina probably no shows – just as well – it seems like a frat party more than a wedding

  33. boredblond says:

    Abc reported the cost to be 13 million dollars, not including cost to shut down part of city Mon so they can have another ceremony. Excess entitlement run amok, this is just insanity. I have considerably less regard for cloon–he chose this circus venue– and new respect for celebs who do have private ceremonies..Will never say a bad thing about Pitt/Jolie again.

    • lisa2 says:

      I doubt it was 13 million.. I mean that is a bit well crazy.. I would imagine the wedding getting up to 2 to 3 million dollars. But her family is paying for it.. so George could be covering the cost of all the other expense. So he may have come out very well.

    • wolfpup says:

      I think that it’s nice that they are sharing.

      • hmmm says:

        I love extravagant weddings. Since Harry’s dragging his heels on marriage, I’m happy to follow this one. It’s like a royal wedding, but without the hats.

  34. kibbles says:

    Michelle Obama wore a similar red and black McQueen gown in 2011:

    I saw more photos of Amal and her crew. She and her mom are total fame whores. Her mom was posing for the cameras too. They really remind me of the Middletons. Both families are social climbers who have used their daughters’ snagging rich and famous men to boost their own social status. Both families try to appear classier than they really are. It makes me wish that Clooney had just married one of his D-list exes or remained a bachelor.

    • hmmm says:

      Oh! Now that’s really nice (MO)! She looks fabulous! Thanks! Fits with my comment below that Amal’s dress needs a sleeker hairdo and a certain sensibility. It is not a party dress.

  35. JudyK says:

    I just do not understand all the negative comments about this woman. I admire her and think she handles herself beautifully and with class. She’s ten steps above any other woman Clooney has dated.

    • Someonestolemyname says:

      Not everyone is going to like her or admire her, or find her attractive, it’s no big deal, either way.

    • claire says:

      I don’t either. Everyone seems to want her to look unhappy and walk around with a coat on her head, hiding from the cameras. Now people are calling her ugly. There’s some real nutters in this thread.

    • OhDear says:

      Yeah, I get that she might not be to everyone’s taste, but what the heck did she do to deserve this much vitriol?

  36. Vava says:

    I think she’s gorgeous!

    Not a huge fan of the dress though. I don’t care for the print, or that hemline. Can’t wait to see the wedding gown!

  37. als says:

    I don’t know what is more embarassing for Clooney now, the fact that he proved to be a cheap fame whore underneath that polish, private, gentleman-like image or the fact that he keeps denying it.
    This girl, Amal, has the right to like the attention for whatever reason she wants (maybe she’s a born attention-seeker, maybe she’s just a happy bride) but the fanatical insistence with which Clooney’s people tell us she DOESN’T like the attention is ridiculous and a bit sick.
    In the words of Kaiser: “YOU LIE!”

  38. lisa2 says:

    Regarding Amal.. it is her first wedding.. I would imagine she is enjoying all the attention. She is being made to feel like a princess or queen. All the pictures.. people wanting to see her. It happens to every bride I would think. Problem is that is not the marriage. Just a big splashy beautiful wedding. What comes after is what is important. She and George have known each other really for a short amount of time. I know sometime it works but it is going to be difficult; especially as the camera and stories turn; as they always do.

  39. liab23 says:

    to much hair, to much make up

    • Someonestolemyname says:

      Her makeup is awful, why is she using pale colored makeup not suited for her Olive skin color. Her face looks awful. IMO
      Also her body looks terrible , In that photo.
      Gorgeous dress.

  40. Kristine says:

    Chick is a total bobble head. I know people think she’s attractive, but I don’t get it. She’s like an overpainted piece of gristle with a huge head.

    • Someonestolemyname says:

      I don’t get it either. I don’t think her face or body are attractive.
      Hair is glorious though.

  41. skippy says:

    Makes me feel so lucky and blessed when I see this stuff.

  42. Jayna says:

    Bono and Ali arrive. His wife is so pretty. She’s in her 50s, but never seems to age. Yet she doesn’t have the fake, overdone look. She’s like Julianne Moore that way, hitting their early 50s with confidence, not desperation.

  43. hmmm says:

    I am sure I have detected a DuchessKate™ wiglet in photos from the last couple of months. That’s an enormous amount of hair! Looks like with a strong wind, she’ll topple over.

    Is it just me/my screen, or is that dress too orange for her colouring? The dress is interesting, but I think it needs a certain sang froid to carry it off. And sleeker, pulled back hair perhaps? It just doesn’t look like a party dress.

    She looks really happy. She’s definitely in love with the cameras and attention. Curiouser and curiouser, given the PR.

  44. ickythump says:

    Shes no great beauty but thats th point – hes supposedly done with th dolly birds – we’ ll see why soon enough when he makes his play known – (senator clooney perhaps) not so much a trophy wife, more a running mate.

  45. Ag-UK says:

    She def looks happy as her entire family but too much concealer and her hair is v big. Looks nice but seems too much for her small face . I doubt a sleek bun will never see the light of day.

  46. Jayna says:

    Poor Kanye and Kimtrashian couldn’t get Anna Wintour to come to their wedding, but she’s at George’s. Burn.

  47. Leah says:

    Where’s Julia?

  48. margo says:

    no not stunning at all

  49. Jh says:

    I don’t know. Something is amiss. I really don’t understand the hype.

  50. Nameless face says:

    First time poster here.

    When the first photo (top of the article) of her loaded, I immediately thought “Death Becomes Her.”
    It looks very Meryl Streep to me, where her head was on her body backwards. Does anyone agree??

  51. aqua says:

    I was watching E news last night and Rupaul was the guest co host and his take on all of this is that George is a brand who makes a lot of money, especially overseas and that all stars need to update their brand in order to stay relevant. I’m not sure I really believe this because marriage to me seems like an extreme thing to do to stay relevant.

    • hmmm says:

      Aren’t we talking about the guy who contracted women to be his girlfriends every couple of years? A guy who carefully controls his image? If so, that’s a very cynical view of women and life, IMO. It’s not a stretch, then, to believe, that he needed to change his brand, and (especially after the Tina and Amy burn) he began to do just that. He just changed the terms of the contract.

      • Someonestolemyname says:

        And Rupaul is not going to say all of what he really thinks is going down on camera. IMO

      • kibbles says:

        +101 His image has been carefully controlled and crafted. He has wanted to come off as a suave and intelligent Hollywood A-list actor and director. He has succeeded for the most part except for his contract girlfriends. I believe the joke Tina and Amy made really, really got to him and he realized that he needed to change things up concerning his love life. But the jig is up. His years of dating contract D-list girlfriends told us all we needed to know about him.

  52. siri says:

    There are many more pics on Getty images. I don’t like the way she wears this dress, I also don’t like this kind of red. Too much of everything, hair &makeup. Of course she’s exited, she just closed a very lucrative deal. I wonder where her father is, though. Also didn’t see Clooney’s mother, just his father & sister.

  53. joyful says:

    They probably are both extremely happy. But to me all that grinning has an element of fear not to look serious as they might be accused of being discontent. Wishing them many good deeds ahead and genuine love and happiness.

  54. aqua says:

    So, could this dress be the reason why we saw pictures of her walking out of Alexander McQueens fashion house, and she still might have an custom designed Oscar de la Rent wedding dress?

  55. solanaceae (Nighty) says:

    Ok, how can anyone bend a finger like she’s doing on the 3rd pic? Ouch!! Or is there something wrong with my eyes?…

    • Daisyduck says:

      I also noticed that and immediately tried to do it…it’s not possible for me, maybe she’s double jointed in the thumb?! Very strange.

  56. Mischa Jane says:

    I think she’s a very striking woman, that dress looked amazing when she walked in it. She looks great in red. They seem happy.

  57. Trolleydolly says:

    Something amiss can’t put my finger onit but wow she has the most beautiful stunning tumbling locks and Clooney is a very handsome chap…… But something not adding up.?

  58. Az says:

    She reminds me of Anne Hathaway in The Devil Wears Prada après makeover.

  59. Janet says:

    I hate mullet dresses but that color looks great on her. And OMG I want her hair.
