George & Amal Clooney Wed in Venice: September 27, 2014
The most spoken about wedding of the year has arrived, George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin, congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Clooney! Considering the Clooney wedding is set for a feature in Vogue and the magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Anna Wintour, skipped half of Paris Fashion Week to attend the festivities in Venice, we wouldn’t be surprised if the stylish set played a part in Amal’s stylish transformation.
Ever After has the honor of featuring designers that were worn at the wedding festivities by the bride, Amal Alamuddin Clooney and her family; Giambattista Valli, Reem Acra, and her wedding gown look Oscar de la Renta.
Amal Alamuddin Arrival Look: George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin arrival look on Sept. 26, consisted of a sleeveless striped Dolce & Gabbana dress that fell below the knee. The bride-to-be looked sleek and sophisticated in her look, which seemed effortless and stylish at the same time.
Amal Alamuddin Civil Ceremony Look: was a white custom pantsuit by British Designer Stella McCartney, which the bride wore with a wide-brimmed hat, was the outfit of choice for the civil wedding ceremony. A local politician escorted them inside the building to sign the marriage papers. The Clooneys emerged 10 minutes later and looked ecstatic as they held hands and kissed. A local city council press person confirms “the ink was on the paper, finalized, at about 1:30. The rest was just happiness and joy.”
Amal Alamuddin Bachlorette Party Dress: For a pre-wedding dinner, Amal looked striking in a red gown that featured a high low hem-line from Alexander McQueen‘s Resort 2011 collection. The bride-to-be paired the ensemble with a bold red lip and a glossy blowout as her smile proved to be her best accessory.
The entire wedding venue was decorated with white flowers as well as hundreds of hand-crafted flickering candles.
Amal Alamuddin bridal gown: Amal Alamuddin was radiant in her traditional Oscar de la Renta French lace gown, which was hand-embroidered with pearls and diamante stones. The gown featured an off-the-shoulder neckline and a full train, and the whole look was finished with a cathedral-length lace-edged veil.
The designer, who has created wedding gowns for celebrities including Kate Bosworth and Jenna Bush, personally attended each fitting. “He’s such an elegant designer and such an elegant man,” Alamuddin tells PEOPLE of Oscar de la Renta. “It was simple and grand,” a source tells PEOPLE of the dress. “It had all the hallmarks of a grand de la Renta style.”
The next day, the newlyweds received cheers from hundreds of tourists, locals and photographers as they made their first public appearance as husband and wife.
Amal Alamuddin Mini-dress look:Took our breath away when she stepped out in — a Giambattista Valli mini-dress that featured a rise and fall hemline and long sleeves. The ensemble, which has long sleeves, also features hand-embellished blossoms — and it allowed the new Mrs. Clooney to flaunt her best feature, her endless legs, as she attended a post-wedding brunch.
“Everyone in Venice feels so privileged they did this here,” an eyewitness told E! News. “What a wonderful moment to see. We all say she’s like Jackie [Kennedy] Onassis. We love her and George does too. It’s lovely.”
