It seems as though the fashion world has a new darling! The new Mrs. Clooney, stunning international civil rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, has been making headlines with her fierce sense of fashion while celebrating her wedding weekend in Italy — but one of her dresses looked very familiar! Who do YOU think wore it better?
Amal Alamuddin, 36, has been making many fashion statements while celebrating her wedding in Venice, Italy — and she has received nothing but praise! From her one-of-a-kind, Oscar de la Renta wedding dress to her white Giambattista Valli couture mini, she has dressed to impress in one original look after another — but that’s not all! On the eve of her wedding, Amal showed off a frock fit for a fashionable first lady, wearing a scarlet Alexander McQueen Resort 2011 dress we first saw on Michelle Obama.
Amal Alamuddin & Michelle Obama — Same Dress Moment In Alexander McQueen:
In January 2011 First Lady Michelle Obama, 50, was the first to debut the dress when she stepped out in the stunning McQueen waterfall gown and paid homage to China, which was fitting as the family was wecloming Chinese President Hu Jintao to the White House for a state dinner on January 19, 2011. The silhouette highlighted Michelle’s favorite asset, her toned arms, and with her hair swept up she showed off the beautiful neckline of the gown.
While Michelle was the first to debut the dress, Amal made it her own as she stepped out for a rehearsal dinner on Sept. 26, the evening before her wedding. In a short-sleeved dress with a rise and fall hemline, the 36-year-old civil rights lawyer opted for a more flirty version of the frock — and it was totally appropriate for the occasion! With her long hair in a voluminous blowout, she pulled it all together with a bold red lip.
Both of these ladies have a different body type and I think they did a fantastic choice selecting a silhouette that was appropriate for both their figure and the occasion at hand. Even three years later, this dress is still just as stunning!
What do you think? Who wore this glam red gown better?
