Here is your first look at Amal Alamuddin’s stunning wedding dress, courtesy Vogue, designed by Oscar de la Renta.
“George and I wanted a wedding that was romantic and elegant, and I can’t imagine anyone more able than Oscar to capture this mood in a dress,” she told Vogue. “Meeting him made the design process all the more magical, as he is so warm and such a gentleman.”
Alamuddin went to the fitting with de la Renta and head tailor Raffaele Ilardo in late July with her mother, Baria Alamuddin, and sister, Tala Alamuddin. The lawyer and actor George Clooney were wed this past weekend in Venice, Italy.
“It’s the most important dress in the life of a woman,” de la Renta told Vogue. “Any girl from any walk of life dreams of that special dress, and I try to make that dream a reality for her. Amal and I looked at a lot of evening dresses and wedding dresses together, and we discussed what she liked. That gave me the idea of what she wanted.”
The dress is “ivory tulle appliqued with 14 yards of Chantilly lace, its bodice hand embroidered with beading and crystals.”
