Amal Clooney wore a $1587 Tome jumpsuit in LA: fug, overpriced or hot?


Amal Clooney looks to me like she’s probably about 5’8”, give or take an inch. She’s taller than the average woman, so I don’t really get her love of platform heels. I was reminded of that with these photos – Amal loves a big, chunky platform heel. Does she like the added height? Does she not do well in regular heels? Does she want her feet to look like a big blocks of cork? Who knows?

These are pics of Amal with her dad Ramzi Alamuddin in LA on Friday. They were visiting the LA set of Surburbicon, which is being directed by George Clooney and his Casamigos shirt. While it’s nice to see Amal’s dad is visiting, I’m sort of missing sad-faced basset hound Millie Clooney. Millie got to visit the set on Thursday. I kind of wonder if Millie’s “not impressed” face means that Millie doesn’t get to come to the set anymore.

As for Amal’s outfit in these photos, she’s wearing a jumpsuit by Tome. Guess how much this costs. €1,458 (Euros). Or $1587. While this jumpsuit isn’t my cup of tea, I could see how someone (like Amal) would pick it out and think “oh, that’s kind of cool.” But not for that price! Good God. Who would spend more than $1500 on a weird, ill-fitting striped jumpsuit? As for the wedges… they’re Jimmy Choo. More than $400 for those monsters. I bet Duchess Kate would love them though. Honestly, these wedges – while hideous – are so much better than Kate’s wedges of doom.

On Friday I also mentioned that I thought Amal looked like she had a boob job. Other people noticed it too and now the British tabloids are trying to make it seem like Amal is looking “fuller figured” because she started IVF. It could be, although there have been IVF rumors for a year now. I kind of just think she had a boob job.

    Big-time boob job.

    • Suzanne says:

      Nah…when women get boob jobs…9 out of 10, show them off and there isn’t any trace of cleavage there…which generally there is unless she got a lousy job done and they’re six inches of a gap between them….screaming BOOB JOB!

      • mbh12 says:

        Definate Boob job, but I think she had one already even before wedding, engagement.
        I believed she always had one, she may have had another though to enhance.
        She is so thin, that her boobs look like bolt ons now.
        Whatever she is wearing looks like a hotel robe.

        She has hair extensions in too or she has on several occasions. The weft was spotted in some photos.

      • Sabrine says:

        IVF? That’s ridiculous. They are so not people who plan on having children. Their baby is Millie and they’re perfectly happy with fur babies only. I don’t know where these crazy rumors come from. Boob job? Probably not. She probably got a bra with more padding.

  2. Jules says:

    Boob job. Doesn’t Clooney buy a set for his women eventually?

    • Jayna says:

      He buys them a boob job when they are on the way out. I think it’s what the girls wanted, not him. I can think of two, the Las Vegas cocktail waitress and the Italian. Both got boob jobs towards the very end of the relationship. A parting gift? Lol

      He has said he’s a leg man. Which, Amal has nicely shaped, long legs, IF she would just put on a few pounds.

      • Jules says:

        She definitely needs a sandwich or a dozen.

      • Kate says:

        Yeah, he usually goes for tall-ish and slim or athletic. The couple who’ve gotten a boob job have done so seemingly after the relationships ended but before announcements have been made.

  3. als says:

    These IVF rumors are so intrusive although I know they have been encouraged by many celebrities that over shared about their reproductive function.
    Why doesn’t the press just ask access to the OBGYN consult? And why don’t the over sharing celebrities offer this access from the beginning and call it a day?

    • Emmet says:

      Blind Gossip had a story sometime ago that GC would not reverse his vasectomy and possibly that he would have an invasive procedure looking for viable sperm. Said it was too painful.

      Too much detail in this item as it was probably given directly from his team.

  4. Jennifer says:

    It looks quite pretty on her. The stripes kind of remind me of a circus tent but the cut is very flattering. She’s lovely.

    • Inas alsaadi says:

      lol @ circus tent and very true.

    • Suzanne says:

      What are you drinking….? I’ll have some of that! She has to parade to his job site every day as an excuse to dress up and have the press follow her. She’s an attention whore.

      • Amelie says:

        I can understand why a newly married person would visit their spouse on set if they were a director of a movie. George probably leaves very early in the a.m. and gets home late. This schedule continues day after day and the couple isn’t able to see one another. What I don’t understand is why cameras “happen” to be there when Amal visits.

      • OhHellNo! says:

        I actually thought that was George with her at first! She does love those cameras doesn’t she?

      • mbh12 says:

        Total attention whor;;;a. that she is. Loves it.
        She or her pr camp use to give phone tips into Tanna as to her London stroll walks,(, Kate’s former favorite papz .) They even tweeted it, in the early days of the romance.

      • Miss M says:

        As someone who figured out George Klooney’s pr game a long time ago *Hi George*, it is unfair to call his wife (Or any of his exes famewh*re- yeah, I fell in that trap too) as this is his way to keep his name in the press without being so obvious…
        ps: My sincere apologies to any ex that I called famewh*re, even to Mrs. Stacy Pobre…

      • Zelda says:

        I know right? the day this woman stops precision tracking every camera in a 2 mile vicinity and f*cking the life out of it is the day the Universe ends.

      • Sabrine says:

        She’s not an attention whore. She’s visiting her husband at work. A lot of women do that.

    • chaine says:

      I like it, too, and I usually hate jumpsuits and rompers and that sort of thing. It looks fun and breezy.

    • ravensdaughter says:

      It may be overpriced, but I like it. She is so slender it suits her.
      Oh, to have the figure and the money to spend on nice clothes! When I hit 50 everything went to hell. I have discovered nice plus sized clothes, which helps my self esteem. At first all I could do-it was a sudden weight gain-was look in the mirror and yell “fat, fat, fat”!
      I was skinny when I was 35…what a drag it is to get old. –

  5. ReineDidon says:

    Amal clearly has her own conception of style and she’s not quitting it. I mostly dislike her outfits but this one is a hit to me.

    • Chetta B. says:

      I like it as well. Smashing and different!

    • velourazure says:

      I would choose some sort of platform/wedge too if I was walking on grass. Heels and grass don’t mix.

    • Mumzy says:

      It’s cute that she is somewhat coordinating with her dad’s shirt.

    • G says:

      I really don’t like most things that she wears, but I do admire that she seems to stick to her own style.

      Also, I was focused on the clothes when I first looked at the pictures, so I assumed it was George next to her. Didn’t realise until I read mention of her father. Not a good sign.

  6. Sasha says:

    Her clothes are comped and most likely, she gets a check too.
    I sort of like the jumpsuit, but not with those hideous shoes. And, not at that price tag.
    I don’t think she’s a fraction over 5’6″. Maybe even 5’5″. George isn’t as tall as he’d like you to believe, for that matter.

    • Jayna says:

      She’s taller than five-five or five-six easily. At least, five-eight.

      • BonnieJean says:

        Google says she is 5′ 8″. She looks taller because…shoes.

      • mbh12 says:

        I am surprised to see how Short George Clooney is. I just noticed it , no way he’s 6ft, He looks more like 5:9.

      • Nic919 says:

        I have seen Clooney in person and he is 5’10” max, if that. He probably doesn’t stand as straight as he used to though because of his back issues.

  7. Luca76 says:

    It’s fine I guess but it looks like something you’d buy at what we used to call the 10$ store in high school. I know at her income spending 1500$ is nothing (if she didn’t get it for free) but it just looks kind of cheap.

  8. Jayna says:

    She’s walking on grass. A platform shoe is a good idea.

    I like certain platform shoes.

    I doubt she pays full price for any of her clothes and/or gets them free.

    • Karina says:

      I agree. The platforms are good for walking on the grass. Gopher holes/mounds with high heels are uncomfortable and unsightly.

  9. paolanqar says:

    She has an awful dress sense and an Olivia Oyl vibe. She looks like a deck chair here.
    And she obviously had a boob job.

    • HH says:

      A deck chair!!!! BAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

      I actually like the jumpsuit without the shoes, but that reference is HILARIOUS. My real issue with Amal, is that she always looks so…. camera-ready. I really like that she’s into fashion with her own sense of style, but something about it doesn’t come off as natural.

    • Inas alsaadi says:

      OMG hahahah @Olivia Oyl vibe . girls your killing me today here .

  10. Esmom says:

    I’m usually not a fan of her style but I don’t hate this for some reason. As someone else said, it reminds me of a circus tent but somehow it works in an easy-breezy kind of way.

  11. Barrett says:

    I did IVF. Ha l!!! it makes your ovaries/eggs go up a cup size. (Holy bloating) not your BOOBs.

    Why such a smart woman needs huge fake bolt-ones. She looked good before while running the world w her brain.

    • LAK says:

      Before i finished reading the post and that final IVF paragraph, i was going to make the observation that she’s clearly added weight. Her arms aren’t as twiglet as usual. I had a similar weight gaining reaction to her hipster jeans photos from yesterday’s thread because her hip bones didn’t look as razor sharp as always.

      IF she’s tryinb to get pregnant, it’s possible, no?

  12. SnazzyisAlive says:

    I could never understand how some women can go around with such small purse. Mine is giant, and always filled with crap, no matter how hard I try to streamline!

  13. TrueStory says:

    Queen! Amal is flawless!

  14. lwil2 says:

    you can get the same sh*t at Khols or Pennys for $30 – $50. FOH

  15. Abbess Tansy says:

    Fug on the colors of the jumpsuit, ok on the style. The shoes… just ugh. I hate these huge platform shoes. Almost like hooves.

  16. boredblond says:

    I bet all the runners and assistants working on this film just love arranging her pap strolls.

  17. Em says:

    She seems to like the ’70s boho aesthetic and platforms go right along with that. I have to say, I don’t get the level of hatred for them on here. No, they’re not the most elegant shoes but they’re fun and pretty darn comfortable if you compare them to heels. The arch is much less steep and the platform cushions the foot from the impact of each step. So if you’re on your feet for the whole day for an event, they’re a nice dressy-casual choice.

  18. mellie says:

    Those wedges…I bought a red pair at Payless in our local mall for $12.95, nearly identical. I just can’t with her.

  19. everlyB says:

    Whatever pants she is wearing, they are always too short cause she is 5.8 or taller. The chunky shoes might distract us from half mast. The optimum shoes for grass are flats, so that can’t be the reason to wear those monsters, rather problematic feet or a lack in sense of style, what her general problem is.
    She dresses like a teenager sometimes, that’s so ridiculous. And when she is very appropriate clothes, it looks try hard.
    Whatever she does, fails.
    Rant over

  20. Timbuktu says:

    I don’t get why the jump suit is ill-fitting. It looks good on her, does it not?

  21. gatinha523 says:

    As a Tall Lady myself (5’11), I feel like we are always damned if you do/dont re: footwear. If I wear flats, I get chastised for not wearing heels and “EMBRACING MY HEIGHT!!” and if I wear heels, I get to listen to “You are SO tall!!!” all day. Annoying. I never understand why people think it is OK to comment and gape at a woman’s height. You would never say “OMG You are sooo short!!” to someone, as that is obviously rude. I get that people mean it as a compliment, but its just uncomfortable. OK, rant over.

    • Dippit says:

      5′ 11″ too (was 2′ at birth) and spent a childhood being approached by strangers in the street (usually elderly women) just to comment on how tall I was. I’ve often thought it unlikely they would have told a short girl how short she was.

      Centre back row of all group school/childhood photographs. Asked countless times if I planned to join the police when I grew up. Asked if I got nosebleeds “up there”. Used to hate it.

      Now I wear heels, head up shoulders back and only regret that I topped out at 5′ 11″ instead of making it to 6′. I’m a throwback because my family are all very average height bar me, but my great-grandfather was 6′ 5″.

      I like being tall now and usually don’t mind when it is commented upon anymore. However dancing (in heels) at a party can be awkward as many men (including my husband) find their eye-level naturally at around my boob level.

      I think Amal got new boobs over the summer.

    • MrsBPitt says:

      I work with a lady who is 4′ 10″ and people are always saying “you’re so tiny” or “you’re so little”….so, yeah, some short girls get called out. Some people are just rude!

      • Sigh... says:

        Yeah. “You’re so little/tiny/teenie” is actually quite commonly heard by a friend who is 4’11”. Her coworkers (post office) have even taken it upon themselves to tag her “Lil Bit.” And the comments from certain men abt her “perfect height” are NOT subtle…

      • gatinha523 says:

        that is SO rude!!! AND such a double standard as I doubt people would be so comfortable with making a man’s height (or lackthereof) such public property to comment on.

      • Dippit says:

        @MrsPitt @Sigh it sounds as though, perhaps, as a child I was mistaken in having a sense of ‘grass is always greener’. Maybe the strangers who approached me to comment upon my tall height would have inclined towards doing so also towards young girls on the diminutive side likewise. I just never heard it.

    • A says:

      Preach gatinha523! I am 6′ and I’ve never very self conscious about my height (luck, extremely tall family, and tall friends), though now I’m an adult people seem to think it’s appropriate to critique my clothing choices. Mostly I find people are trying to get me to apologize for their discomfort with my height, as though it’s my fault/problem that they have an issue with tall women. Re: heels I just always say something like “If that’s your logic: I’m already this tall, what’s another 3/4/6 inches matter? Besides, anyone who is going to have a problem with my height already does, and I’m not dressing for them anyway.”

    • Maya says:

      Actually, I am 5’2 and people comment on how short I am ALL the time.

    • tekla says:

      I’m tall as well and I get comments like “do you play basketball/volleyball?” or just “wow, you’re SO tall”. It’s really annoying, but I still wear high heels, lately almost everyday. My ex husband used to have this rule about me not wearing heels in his presence, because I was taller than him then and he hated it… Now I wonder, are all men so self-concious about women being taller?!

      • Dippit says:

        I’ve never had a man (I’ve been involved with) let on that he’s been bothered by my height if he’s been shorter.

        My then to become husband caught me by surprise with our first kiss standing in the middle of St Andrew’s Square, Edinburgh; because I was wearing heels there was a good 5-6″ difference between us so I always admired his tenacity to go in for the kiss in the moment. He said “I love you” immediately following that kiss so I figured him worth the stroll to a nearby set of steps for a sat down second kiss… 25yrs on and he’s yet to complain at having to stretch up a bit and only gets vexed at the quantity of shoes I buy, not their heel heights.

      • Amelie says:

        Your post is so romantic and a testament to “real” love. Thanks for sharing. It reminded me of something one of your countryman wrote:

        “Let me not to the marriage of true minds
        Admit impediments. Love is not love
        Which alters when it alteration finds,
        Or bends with the remover to remove:
        O no; it is an ever-fixed mark,
        That looks on tempests, and is never shaken;
        It is the star to every wandering bark…”

  22. Felicia says:

    Clooney is about 5’10”. A bit taller than me and I’ve seen him in person. And platform or very chunky heels are the only thing to wear for grass. Otherwise you end upbplanted like a tent pole a couple of yards in!

  23. Joannie says:

    Outfit is fine shoes are ugly.

  24. Coconut says:

    It’s possible she’s gaining weight to be more conception-friendly (maybe she was so skinny, her ovulation was irregular).

    Love this outfit on her!

  25. Nimbolicious says:

    Look at me! Look at me! Look at me! Gawd, enough already…..

    Millie probably took one look at that getup and said, “No. No way. No. Not after those jeans. Get your dad to go with you — he needs the walk more than I do.”

  26. Karina says:

    Amal is circus chic!

  27. deevia says:

    She’s so lean she could wear anything and looks good! I love a woman who puts on the drama, even if it’s only style.

  28. hey-ya says:

    …to think her style used to be Zara…lol…

  29. Debutante says:

    I usually like her fashion choices, especially in dresses and gowns, but this jumpsuit is fug.
    As for the boob job, I think this is the second one !!

  30. Ange says:

    I would like it more if it was a cute knee length dress I think. I’d even keep the scarf/belt.

  31. Anare says:

    Amal’s jumpsuit looks a percale sheet from a sale table at Bed Bath and Beyond. You know just the odd colors and sizes are left at the end of summer. The flatforms are hideous. A dressier more slender wedge is still good on grass and would have looked a lot more attractive.
