The wedding of actor George Clooney and human rights activist Amal Alamuddin was one of the biggest events in entertainment this year, and it is no surprise that the two looked flawless as they said “I do.” Their wedding pictures have graced the cover of People magazine, and the stunning photos are likely to inspire wedding day fashions for years to come. Find out how you can recreate George’s enviable wedding day look even on a tight budget.
George & Amal’s Wedding Style
George and Amal were the epitome of style when they tied the knot on September 27th
. George wore a custom tuxedo designed by his longtime friend Giorgio Armani
. The black tux from the Made to Measure
collection was made from an ultra-fine blend of wool and cashmere. Not to mention, that the tux was given a special touch when Armani stitched George’s name inside, directly below the label. George paired it with a white dress shirt, black bow tie, and matching Oxfords in smooth black leather. Naturally, he topped off the look with his million dollar smile!
The new Mrs. Clooney certainly didn’t allow her husband to out-shine her, and she had style experts in awe of her stunning designer dress. Amal looked breathtaking while wearing a white tulle ball gown by Oscar de la Renta. The dress featured beading and lace, accompanied by a long veil draped beautifully over her long, dark locks. Looking both elegant and romantic, the off-the-shoulder gown featured 14 yards of appliqués made from Chantilly lace, all embroidered and embellished by hand.
Recreating George’s Look
George’s wedding day look has driven home the point that a black tuxedo with classic bow tie is always in style for a formal affair. As one of the most popular formal wear options for men, a black tux is always a fashionable choice. While you may not have George’s connections and can’t call Giorgio Armani on a whim for a custom job, designers like Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, and Joseph Abboud create beautiful and affordable black wedding tuxedos
that are perfect for your big moment.
If you want to take your look up a notch by adding a pop of color, a wedding vest is the perfect addition. While George may have opted out of the vest for his nuptials, many grooms and groomsmen wear them in order to match the colors of the bridesmaid dresses. If you are looking to add a vest to your ensemble, but are concerned about comfort, a backless 3-button tuxedo vest
can enhance your style without leaving you constricted.
It’s also important to remember that you don’t have to spend a fortune in order to replicate George’s classic wedding look. An inexpensive tuxedo
that is tailored to perfection, can give you a dapper look on your wedding day, plus it's also a great investment for your wardrobe. Chances are good that at some point in your life you’ll need to wear a tux again, and having one on hand means you're prepared for any event that life throws your way.
