We Need to Talk About George


I know you've seen it all a million times, and I usually don't venture off into the deep and uncharted waters of celebrity gossip often (beware...there be dragons), but it's Saturday, so whatever.

I was actually in Venice the weekend of The Clooney Nuptials, although I was not so lucky as to catch a glimpse. I have it on good authority however (from the waiter who served me my pasta al Nero on Sunday night, and why would he lie) that there was a huge effort that went into the whole affair. Buildings draped in black cloth to keep out the paparazzi, extra polizia brought in to block-off a radius around the various venues tantamount to the distance one would expect to keep themselves safe from a nuclear blast, and so on.  I saw none of it.

However. There is the rather large matter of the astronomical chicness at play here that we simply must acknowledge. The Clooney himself was impeccable, and Ms. Alamuddin-Clooney was just a few hemlines away from perfection. And who does her hair!? How is it always so perfect!? I have thick hair too, and I am dying to find a way to make it look like that ALL THE TIME. Girl, throw us mere mortals a bone. Sheesh.

Anyway. Here's a quick photo essay of The Clooney Nuptials, with (minimal...you're welcome) commentary.

  1. Thanks for this post! How exciting that you were there and you couldn't gate crash! I thought the white dress was way too short, even with fabulous legs, and there was a bit too much going on. However, she looks fab in the trousers outfit and the black and white dress, and the wedding dress was sublime. It will be interesting to see if she becomes a fashionista now!

  2. What I want to know is why they have a fan blowing on her hair while she is having a wedding dress fitting. Totally natural.

    1. I thought the exact same thing! This whole affair, while outrageously chic, must have taken an ARMY of stylists, art directors, set designers....I mean...who pitches up in Venice carrying a HAT BOX in the year 2014!? Yes, I had my army of attendants carry everything else inside and unpack for me, but I just thought I would take this one in myself. hogwash. Some stylist was trying to give her an Audrey Hepburn moment. With success, I might add, but still. I see the strings.

  3. Confession. I found her wedding dress itself kind of jejeune. But, hey, she's under no obligation to be chic while wedding;).

    1. I always giggle when I hear the work jejune used now...ever since Niles Crane from Fraiser....he used to always use that term to great effect. And I have to agree with you. It's lovely, but predictable.

  4. Your hair would look that perfect if you had someone "doing" it every day. I completely agree about the shortness of the hems. So glad you mentioned it. Other than that. Perfect. Look at them having the trifecta, Hello, Vogue, and People!

    1. I am inclined to agree. She looked good in clothes and photographs at this weight, but I think that in life, she likely looks a bit frail. You can tell by the way her head looks against her body that this is probably not her natural weight. A bit of the lollipop going on.

  6. And one would think with all that dough and assistance SOMEBODY would have hemmed her white trousers to the correct length. They are flowy, and should be on the long side, but not long enough to tread on. That just looks sloppy and lazy.

    1. EXACTLY. Anyone who has been to Venice would shy away from any white pant that actually trails across the ground if you are going to be walking around anywhere for more than a minute and a half. They will be covered in all manner of nastiness.

  7. I am sorry I do not think she was all that fashionable. I think HE was- just perfect.
    She is too skinny and the clothes she is wearing just underline this.
    The black and white one is awful, very unfeminine. She looks like a wallpaper.
    The lovely flower dress is much too short, sort of indecent, I'd expect my future wife to look like a lady and not, well, as you put it, like an ice-skating competitor at best. Same dress about knee-length would have been most elegant.
    The Stella McCartney pants - o yes happily there was no Acqua Alta in Venice on that day, in that case the flower dress would have been the most appropriate choice.
    I think she is clever but with no style.
    Apart from that - why is the skinny long brown hair type so much in demand? (Letizia, Rania, Amal all lookalikes!)

  8. I think she is really too thin... And some of her dresses are really too, too, too short to be elegant...
