Amal Clooney in Roland Mouret to ‘Our Brand Is Crisis’ premiere: lovely?


Here are some photos from last night’s LA premiere of Our Brand Is Crisis, the Sandra Bullock-starring film about white savior political managers “rescuing” an election in South America. George Clooney produced the film and reportedly convinced his friend Sandy to star in it. And last night, George sort of stole his leading lady’s thunder. George walked the carpet with a surprisingly affectionate Amal Clooney. Usually, when they walk the carpet together, Amal is too busy giving FACE to the cameras to really be lovely-dovey with George, but they were really handsy and grabby with each other last night. Hm.

Amal’s oddly cut dress is by Roland Mouret, apparently. I like Mouret’s designs usually, but I’m not crazy about this. The weird bubble of fabric at the neck is weird, right? Like, Mouret was going to do a small cowl but gave up on it and just left the extra fabric. I’m also not crazy about the hip pleats and the color. Otherwise, her look is fine. Great shoes, great blowout, great makeup. Now Amal and George need to work on their red carpet body language a little bit.

George and Amal celebrated their first wedding anniversary a few weeks ago. Which means they are no longer “newlyweds” right? After looking at these photos, I also sort of wonder if we are going to get a pregnancy announcement sometime soon.

PS… Amal’s posture is absolutely the worst. I get that she doesn’t want to tower over George, and it’s not even that George is short, at all. They’re just close in height and Amal loves towering heels, then she hunches on the red carpet (and in life). STAND UP STRAIGHT.

    My posture is the same, not quite as easy as just standing up straight, I get terrible back pain when I do stand up straight.

    • Clucky says:

      Ugh, me too. I’ve had bad posture since I was a kid (I remember my grandmother telling me to stand up straight all the time). My shoulders are rounded in. Wearing heels is especially killer. Standing up straight for any length of time ends up really hurting. I need serious core strengthening to help correct it. It’s one of the things about myself that I’m really self conscious of.

    • lorelei says:

      Yeap, the same goes for me.

    • Charlotte15 says:

      Fourth! My mother to this day corrects my posture and no matter how hard I try, I usually don’t remember to do it all the time, and when I do it is somewhat painful. I’ve learned to just accept that it is what it is!

      I don’t even think Amal’s is that bad, FWIW. It isn’t great in the very last photo, but it’s just how she stands and I really don’t see anything wrong with it.

    • herewego says:

      Someone loaded up on hair-extensions.

      Not feeling her look.


    • Bridget says:

      If it physically hurts for you to stand up straight and tall, that’s a sign that you likely need some serious core and upper body strengthening (and perhaps a good visit to a chiropractor). Spinal health is really important.

      • Savannah says:

        Be wary of a person who recommends chiropractic treatment…

      • Jenny says:

        Savannah: why be wary? Just because it’s not western medicine in its origin doesn’t mean that it doesn’t work. I’d say be wary of prejudiced western imperialism…

  2. Belle Epoch says:

    Did someone instruct them to act this way? He’s an actor, so playing the adoring husband isn’t very hard. Her gazing at him looks scripted. But she is playing her part of Mrs. Clooney well. Why did he decide he needed a wife?

    • Beatrice says:

      Maybe she’s been taking acting lessons. That dress doesn’t do anything for her–bad cut and boring color.

      • Wentworth Miller says:

        It’s ugly and so are her shoes.

      • belle de jour says:

        Yep. That dress is totally unflattering… and not really red-carpet, either.

      • antipodean says:

        The shoes really emphasize her bunion situation. She should really have them seen to. Very painful surgery, but very effective. Of course it would mean she would be out of circulation for at least six weeks, can’t have that, the paps await!

    • Bluebell says:

      Maybe he met her and actually, you know, fell in love?

      • parsleysage says:

        The real question is why the hell would she marry him. He’s a drunk.
        He’s got money and can give her fame that every defence attorney craves, but to live with a drunk would thwart all the other things.

      • claire says:

        There’s a lot of married drunks. There’s a lot of married narcissists, abusers, jerks, etc.

      • herewego says:

        I think she is just as Superficial and into Fame as the previous Beards….a opportunity for Fame, more Money was presented to her and she grabbed it.

    • OhHellNo! says:

      His PR people probably read all the comments of ‘why are they always so disconnected from each other’. This no doubt prompted the attempt at looking like an engaged married couple but it isn’t working is it? They aren’t actually looking at each other at any one time! I have never seen a picture of him looking her full in the face, he always seems to have his head turned to one side, I recall one picture after his speech where she talked the whole time and she kissed him on his return to his seat but instead of returning the kiss he had his eyes open and wasn’t even looking at her then! He just isn’t loving his married life at all, but why would he love a contract?

      • Sabrine says:

        I don’t think he’s that much of a drunk. Sure, he likes to have a few drinks when he’s out so don’t see how that makes him a “drunk.” The dress is pretty other than the neckline. It doesn’t seem to know what to do with itself. I have bad posture too. It’s just a bad habit that’s extremely hard to break as it becomes a part of you and you feel most comfortable slouching. They look very happy together.

      • Nimbolicious says:

        She probably also got the memo about ditching open-toed shoes…..

      • Jackie.aka says:

        OhHellNo! – I agree on all observations: scripted gazes (although not direct), acting lessons, hide bunions…

  3. savu says:

    Ugh it’s just weird. I don’t like it. And once you point out her posture I can’t unsee it.

  4. Fa says:

    You can’t work body language on the red carpet if you don’t have chemistry together, they absolutely don’t have chemistry & her posture is really poor that’s why she always twist her arms to have a better posture but she’s failing every time

  5. astrid says:

    I was going to suggest “pregnant” when looking at the front of the dress with the puffy layers. Then I scrolled down and saw the side shot – wow, no way she’s expecting.

    • Bluebell says:

      Just scrolled back up to look at the photo and yeah, wow. I know you’re not really supposed to comment on other women’s figures and that it’s not very nice to do so, but she really is extremely thin. I still think she’s beautiful though. It’s just, she’d be just as beautiful if she weighed a bit more and I hope she knows that.

    • noway says:

      Only if she carries the baby in her crotch does she look pregnant now. From the side that dress with her body lays very odd. I wish she would gain a bit of her weight back. I think her features look too severe this thin, but with a little more weight she is prettier.

    • Jackie.aka says:

      Amal has a very long torso. The tucks in the dress are above her waist. Time will tell if there is a pregnancy in the works.

      • noway says:

        Seriously!!! I think some people are just dying to make them have a baby. She may get pregnant, but she doesn’t know it now. There are tons of pictures of her drinking at this event on Direct Mail check it out. Now if someone says she’s European and they drink when pregnant, I give up and keep dreaming of little baby Clooneys in designer duds.

  6. Thinker says:

    George has such a proclivity for “Vegas girls” – I would expect that he got snipped years ago, rather than end up a Jude Law with a bunch of “Oops” babies around all his ports of call.

    Doubt very much these two will ever bring a screaming baby into the world.

  7. Fa says:

    So she is trying to look in his eyes but he is not looking at her at all in these pics, when one is looking the other one is looking at camera & vice versa

  8. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I think the dress is pretty, though I do see what you mean about the neck. Odd. I like the length on her. I hate it when she goes up a few inches, which she often does, and think she looks best in a slightly longer hem than this, but at least it isn’t too short.

    • Esmom says:

      I thought I was going to be the only one who said I liked the dress. Although I do think it’s still a tad too short. It complements her coloring nicely.

    • noway says:

      I like the dress, but it is just not quite right. Sort of like how I feel about Amal too. The neck line looks like he couldn’t decide what to go with it. The dress looks good straight on, but to the side it doesn’t lay right, and it has weird wrinkles popping up. Plus side, the color and sheen looks great, and I even like it on her, and the length is pretty good too.

      • swack says:

        The darts on the side is what makes it fit weird. I had to look a couple times to figure out what was wrong. Material is probably too stiff.

      • noway says:

        Why is it always the darts? I don’t really know anything about sewing, but what are the darts for in the first place. It just seems that a lot of these high fashion designs have dart issue and I can’t understand their purpose. Just curious.

      • taxi says:

        The dress doesn’t fit her properly. It wrinkles & bags in the wrong places. Her legs aren’t as show-worthy as she thinks they are & she’d look better in slightly longer skirts.

  9. als says:

    Amal’s greatest love is obviously not for Clooney but for her legs.
    If she could, she would probably wear bikinis all the time.

  10. Nayru says:

    I don’t see why people are so convinced they want a baby. I get the impression they are happy focusing on their careers, traveling, and each other. Honestly I think she is too underweight to get pregnant easily. I’m willing to bet they would need medical assistance.

    • M.A.F. says:

      Because apparently if one is married it is still assumed they will pop out a baby. Society has yet to get the memo: not everyone wants a kid.

      • herewego says:


      • noway says:

        +1 too. Come on he is almost mid fifties. I think it is entirely possible they have no desire for kids. Speculating on her non-existent bump is a bit rude. I hate that all these women are just seen as incubators sometimes.

  11. Nayru says:

    I didn’t realize our brand is in crisis is the movie title? I thought it was referring to the Clooney marriage at first 😛

  12. Rhiley says:

    Her dress is fine. George’s suit, however, is completely boring. He should have worn a nice grey suit, a navy dress shirt, and maybe a Tom Ford pocket square. His shoes are fine, but still a giant snooze. They look like Banana Republic dress shoes from the days of Will and Grace.

  13. Jayna says:

    I think she looks pretty in the outfit and color palette of the dress and the softer makeup. She’s looks really nice but not overdoing the outfit, thus not taking attention away from the star of the night, Sandy.

  14. Caitlin Bruce says:

    She’s so darn thin not trying to thin shame but has she always been this way or is it just since she met George. I thought the marriage was because of George’s desire to run for political office in the next few years but he denied that last week. Not that celebrities don’t lie.

  15. Catelina says:

    I think she looks good, especially above the neck. Was hoping to get a chance to post before all the negativity came pouring in but oh well.

  16. DaSH says:

    Great hair and make up but man, she looks scary thin on that fourth (side angle) photo. Like if she didn’t have that dress to cover her body, I would think she’s emaciated.

  17. SusanneToo says:

    They may both be perfectly happy in their relationship, we certainly don’t know. George looks better than he has in a while.

  18. What's inside says:

    This dress is wrong on so many levels for her. The thing at the neckline, it looks like a pouch. Has she gone back to smoking? That would explain the thinness and also give a great place to stash her ciggies.

  19. PennyLane says:

    I have to admit I gave a snort of laughter when I saw the dress – if I tried to put a dress like this on my twelve-year-old stepdaughter, she would instantly reject it as being too young-looking.

  20. wow says:

    Not a fan of this dress and the color washes her out.

    George finally looks handsome here again. And another plus is that they actually look like a genuine happy and in love married couple!

  21. Debutante says:

    Her body has morphed in a short time into a lollipop headed starlet type with big fake boobs.
    It’s ridiculous.
    If she wasn’t a “serious lawyer” , she would look like every other Hollywood trophy wife.

    • meme says:

      Exactly. And her dress is too short.

    • sills says:

      That’s the first thing I thought when I saw these photos–“Wow, she’s turning into Barbie!” Super long thin arms and legs, towering high heels, giant boobs, long brush-out… Still I do like this dress, it’s a lovely color and she owns it.

  22. Crumpet says:

    The neck is extremely weird. And wow, is she tiny. That’s all I got.

  23. BearcatLawyer says:

    She seems to love high-necked tops so the faux cowl does not surprise me. I usually love Roland Mouret, especially some of his red carpet stuff, but this design looks like it needs a rework and better tailoring.

  24. JudyK says:

    I wish she would wear skirts that come to the knee or just above the knee. She’s not in high school.

  25. Saywhatwhen says:

    Eat. FFS!!!!!

    • meme says:

      I was going to say the same thing but I thought I’d be accused of bodyshaming. She really is very very thin.

    • Jaded says:

      Agreed….and I’m not body shaming, she really is wayyyy too thin, unhealthily thin. She and the Duchess must be on the same lettuce, water and cigarettes diet.

  26. AlmondJoy says:

    “George and Amal celebrated their first wedding anniversary a few weeks ago. Which means they are no longer “newlyweds” right?”

    I agree. After a year or two, you’re no longer newlyweds in my opinion. But my mom says after FIVE years you’re no longer newlyweds. It’s probably because she’s been married forever, lol.

    I like Amal’s pumps. That’s about it. Her legs are painfully thin, and that’s what I’m always drawn to when I see pics of her.

  27. Colette says:

    Someone on another site said Amal reminds them of ” a newly born colt” .
    Now I can’t unsee it

  28. Liberty says:

    She is gazing dreamily at his forehead.

    (Contract Notes received, but misinterpreted.)

    • siri says:

      She’s a fast learner, knowing exactly how that photographs for people who don’t really look closely. In almost none of the photographs of them together they look directly into each other’s eyes.

      • LED says:

        Very camera-shy too. I thought she looked mighty shy and retiring from her pics, but from the Daily Mail video for the same event, I realised how much of an introvert and reluctant famous handbag Amal is. What struggle and what sacrifice for her husband!

      • OhHellNo! says:

        Did you see the video on the daily fail where they lovingly kissed? She goes in to kiss him, he turns his head so she just gets his cheek, obviously no lip action with these two, he just will not kiss this woman! She turns to walk away and he scrubs his face! Absolutely classic avoidance, they both got the PDA memo but George just can’t bring himself to do what is required, LMAO.

      • siri says:

        Yes, I saw the video. He should at least wipe the kiss off when nobody’s watching…he obviously can’t handle it.

      • nicole says:

        Siri, I agree he never looks her straight in the eye, something is so off about this, he actually looks at Sandra Bullock with more love and passion. And that kiss looked ssooo fake, if I was them I wouldnt even bother trying, its such an act for the camera.

      • Amal's Wardrobe says:

        It was like he’d leaned in to talk to the guy behind her and then she thought he was leaning in for a kiss and got the wrong idea. He looked a bit annoyed that she might have gotten lipstick on his face.

  29. Viv says:

    The colour suits her, she has beautiful skin and hair. Scary skinny though. She doesn’t look like they do any bouncing on each other, she’d break.

    Their bizarre massive publicity campaign to sell her and the relationship convinced me they’re a business arrangement. As long as they’re not angling for power to promote policies that have any negative impact over my life then I wish them the best.

  30. Bonnie says:

    Ugh, Amal reminds of the word “Fetch” from Mean Girls. Like, can we stop trying to make “Amal” happen? Ugh, I can’t with her body, her face, with him, her name ( I will always read it as “Anal) STOP TRYING TO MAKE HER HAPPEN!

  31. Ruyana says:

    I can’t help it, these two bore me into a coma…….. Really.

  32. Nikki says:

    I’m so surprised so many people like this dress; to me, it looks like a 14 year old’s. I usually NEVER think when you get to a certain age you have to cut your hair or wear a certain length, but for a sophisticated, educated woman with a strong, angular face to dress like a cuddly teenager in really short dresses, featuring pin thin legs… It just seems very odd and not attractive.

  33. lizzieb says:

    What happens to that dress when she sits down? Does it even cover her ass? Also, while I’m sure George spends a fortune on clothes he always looks cheap. I can’t figure out why, but that’s what I think. Plus he always gets to be comfy while she’s in something completely hideous and UNcomfortable.

  34. Goldenretriever says:

    Just read the post re: Rachel and Daniel. Now, That’s what I call chemistry.. The Clooneys remind me of two bits of cardboard. That kiss was cringe worthy. Based on their body language I reckon, she is coming off that insane pedestal he has had her on. Anyway in future outings, watch the feet…

    • nicole says:

      Goldenretreiver(love the name, do you have one, beautiful dog) anyway I agree, I saw the pics on DM of Daniel and Rachel and they looked the real deal, love the pic of her with her arms around Daniel after meeting the Queen, so natural and spontaneous. The Clooneys are so stiff and cold looking, aggh.

  35. Monalisa says:

    Both looking cheap!
