Amal Clooney’s 6 Best Fashion Moments in Oscar de la Renta
Since Amal Clooney (née Alamuddin) came onto the scene, she’s gravitated toward a certain ladylike look, and it’s no wonder that she’s made Oscar de la Renta, a brand currently helmed by designer Peter Copping, a go-to. The late great American designer created Clooney’s elegant wedding dress, a look that has influenced countless brides-to-be ever since.
After her lavish Italian wedding ceremony, Clooney swapped out the floor-sweeping train for a flapper-inspired number that showed her more playful side. When it comes to dressing 9 to 5, though, it’s the tailored separates that she’ll reach for more often than not: On a recent business trip to Athens, the attorney opted for a classic De la Renta sheath with a graphic mixed-media pattern, before switching things up for an evening meeting with an oversize Prince of Wales check outfit. During Clooney’s tenure as a Columbia Law School visiting professor, her working uniform has consisted of the brand’s knee-grazing tweed skirtsuits. When the 38-year-old met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, she wore a prim yet unfussy bow-trimmed sweater and full A-line skirt—globally influential and office-appropriate all at the same time.
