Amal Clooney was beautiful with her Martin Margiela red gown dress by John Galliano yesterday at the MET Ball 2015.  All eyes were on her as she arrived yesterday evening, while putting on a loved-up display with George Clooney. A gorgeous couple. The red color was perfect with her dark hair. The make-up was flawless.

Amal ‘s dress in the chinese theme was designed by John Galliano for Maison Margiela

  1. Amal looks absolutely stunning here. This is perhaps my favorite outfit that she has ever worn. Absolute perfection! Of course, a woman really can’t go wrong in a Galliano dress….

  2. Gorgeous woman and dress. Not a fan of the make up though. Too harsh for her striking features and coloring. Could’ve been much better with softer lip, strong eye and less cheek/jaw contouring

    • I don’t like her makeup… I didn’t like her makeup at the Golden Globes either. I too think it is too harsh, and I don’t like the redish colour that Charlotte Tilbury applies to Amal’s eyelids. If I was in Amal’s position I would LOVE to have Pat McGrath working with me. She’s absolutely fantastic and really understands how to work with different skin tones. But since AC is Anna Wintour’s new project now, it makes sense that she would go with the latest it-girl in makeup, Charlotte Tilbury!

      Having said that, I think CT’s makeup line is great for neutral looks. I think CT did a great job on Amal’s wedding day, and I own so many of her lipsticks they are gorgeous. But just not liking her red carpet makeup at all so far.

  3. It’s the most overused word in the fashion press but in this case appropriate — they both look stunning. I wish that Amal hadn’t adopted Anna Wintour as mentor-in-chief since her marriage, however. Wintour, the utterly pretentious, narcissistic (sunglasses indoors, really?) queen of haute couture, cannot be a good influence on her.

    Like

    • Agree re Wintour. Amal has been firmly under Anna’s thumb since pre-wedding times. Taking AW’s advice on where to get her hair done, AW was clearly involved in her wedding outfit choices (why else invite the editor of Vogue to your wedding, most curious), and has also most obviously set up this dress. George maintains Amal doesn’t employ a stylist… she doesn’t need to – she has the chief stylist in Anna Wintour. I think the obvious change in Amal’s dress sense has a lot to do with AW.

      I dislike Anna Wintour. She is not only a pretentious snob, but she has been the driving force behind much that is distasteful in the fashion industry today (size zero models, anyone?). Can’t stand what that woman stands for. And Amal will be judged by the company she keeps.

      • I’m happy to hear that, Jane! I am so sick of Anna Wintour — from the helmet hair to her destruction of countless women’s body image. Not only that, but her style is so stale and dated. And I think most of us see how Amal’s style has become so much less interesting since she’s been under this woman’s spell — from the wedding dress (pretty but talk about boring and conventional!) to all the recent pretentious catwalk looks. Time to liberate Vogue — not to mention Amal — and boot Wintour out of Conde Nast!

    If you are going to have a ‘fairy fashion godmother’, Anna Wintour is the one to have for sure.
    She has more power and connections in the fashion industry than anyone. Kim Kardashian must be losing her mind right about now. 🙂

    John Galliano owes Anna big time for helping to revive his reputation. With one picture, she’s orchestrated a coup – she’s now made Galliano ‘acceptable’ again. His redemption is complete. She’s even gotten herself in the middle of the two of them in the picture.
    Well played, Anna…well played!

    Speaking of John Galliano designing AC’s dress – has there been much in the press where you are about the controversy? I wonder what her law firm thinks of it? Private thoughts….not the public thoughts…lol.

    Please, can ALL celebrity couples…and all non-famous couples… stop with the fake, cheesy gazing at each other ‘wedding shot’ pose?! Ignore the paps when they call for it. Those shots are silly.

    Love the picture of AC/GC walking down the stairs while leaving the gala…way better than all those other posed shots.

  16. Ok, I have to disagree with you all ….I really dislike this dress. The bodice is not bad (asian warrior) but strapless in this way is far too common and booooooring. The bottom half of the dress looks tacky at best. And way too much read. It was too much. The Met theme and her great figure allowed her to do something really outstanding and this is all her and John G. could come up with? She could of also done something new with her hair. Perhaps wearing it up for a change. Oscar and this outfit – 60 out of 100. Step it up Amal. Take a risk.

    Now George looked great. Handsome and elegant.

    The great thing is that they look very much in love which is the best outfit of all:)

    Like

    • I’m actualy glad she didn’t go further than this into the theme. She could have risked falling into stereotypes and even offending others. That wouldn’t have been nice because many rags and even people are just waiting to rip her apart. it’s actually a very well designed dress and it subtly captures the theme without looking like a custom. the bodice is so detailed and structured but still doesn’t compromise on the fit. this is a very hard equilibrium to reach. And it follows the theme as it’s clearly influenced by Chinese armors. As for the bottom part of the dress, I don’t usually like ruffles, but you can tell that much thought and skill was put into it. If you look closely, you can see that it follows a spiral shape. this shape is what makes the bottom works. it creates movement and flow. the bottom actually reminds me of the human dragons we see during the Chinese new years’ celebrations.
      This dress is one of the best I’ve seen last night. the closer you look at it, the move details you see, the more movement you notice, and the richer the color becomes.

  22. The Dancing Woman in Ruffle Red Dress Emoji (I jest). The ruffles and tight bodice gave the illusion of curves – much better gown option than the Golden Globes column gown which was a poor choice for her body type. The armour bodice looks as though it’s sculpted to create even more illusion of a bustline.

    I prefer the post-event hair – it fell more naturally and looked prettier (George’s tux collar is undone in the photos). Most importantly… no hair fiddling, petting or touching! Her best shots are demi profile photos. Not looking directly into the camera (ie. Doughty Street Chambers profile photo). And, they definitely got the “look loved up memo” too.

      As for the “controversy” people keep alluding to here: it’s over. Galliano has done a LOT to make up for what happened. He apologized years ago – very few people bother to apologize for anything they say or do, anymore. He’s sober, now, too. Finally, he’s commendable for his actions since, as well, and actions speak louder than words.

We are all equal!

      So, all this time that you are coming here you are doing it believing she is a man??? Does she looks like a man to you?? REALLY??? Dam!!

      • If I may interject, Jon321 was not stating that Amal is not a woman; and conversely Jon321 is not asserting that Amal is a man. She is most likely suggesting that Amal’s hip to waist ratio does not conform with traditional standards of a feminine physical form. which is defined as “typically narrower at the waist than at the bust and hips. The bust, waist, and hips are called inflection points, and the ratios of their circumferences are used to define basic body shapes” according to Wikipedia.

        Based on the photos, and taking the above-referenced definition into consideration, Amal does not have a feminine figure.

        Again, no one is suggesting anything as absurd and preposterous that Amal is a man.

        Nati – how can I post a pic here – if you can do it for me, it would be great. The pic of her standing up, taken from behind, from your May 2013 file, shows her beautiful round bum and the layers of healthy skin under her bra strap.

    • Jon321, your phase: “Her pre-George figure was amazing.” ,,is confusing to me because, she could not had lost such “feminine” measurements that you mentioned after marriage.. one is born with it or not. in her case, it is her bone structure that is like that, even if she gained more weight she could never be like Sophya Vergara. I personally do not see ANY difference in her wight from before her marriage. I think YOU need to look at her before wedding pictures, there is one she is walking with blue-flowery jeans and a tiny white shirt, front and back (not sure if it will show on the link bellow) and she has almost no much to imagination. I gues we just havent seen her back exposed before, but on her Golden Globe red carpet, one could see her hips prompting from her dress. She has also high shoulders, her collarbone is high and her spine is curbed, maybe due to bad posture?

      anyways, I think it is just her body type and it does not matters if she eats a lot or not. She does looks skinnier in certain clothing than others, for sure.

    George Clooney: I think he is starting to look older and tired or something….I think he lost something…still handsome though.

    General comment about the Red Carpet: I hope the naked dress- dresses will go out of style soon because they are now boring and really annoying to look at!!!! I prefer glamourous women wearing dresses with actual fabric on them, than naked bodies with feathers glued to them… (I never liked Kim’s style anyway…but this time she almost outdid herself in bad taste!!!!)

    • Oh, Anna Wintour isn’t all bad. Anyone who bans selfies at the Met Gala deserves applause, and she supports some good charities and political causes. But she has had a stranglehold on the fashion industry for almost 30 years, and it’s time to shake things up at Vogue, where the worship of socialites, luxury brands and high end lifestyles has become stale and predictable and decadent. Anyone think that Amal has embraced this ethos hook, line and sinker since she has become a Wintour protege?

      Amal seems to have a knack for choosing powerful mentors, which may be one reason she sometimes seems to lack confidence in herself. Time to trust your own instincts and be your own woman, Amal!

      • Hi Janet…
        I agree with you…..AC is certainly embracing luxury brands and high end lifestyles in the past two years….more and more by the day by the looks of the clothes.

        If AC were 19, maybe we could blame Anna Wintour as being too overpowering to a naïve young girl…but AC is 37, educated, and bright. She is not an ingénue. The choices AC makes are hers and I believe she is well aware of the impact of all of them (both positive and negative) and must take responsibility for them (e.g. Galliano…wearing snake skin).
        I think it’s a symbiotic relationship between AC and AW ….and between AC and the designers….and between AC/GC and the paps.
        They all need…and WANT…each other.

Think of how she turned to Geoffrey Robinson in panic when she was challenged in court. Or how she has allowed Anna Wintour to take charge of her fashion choices. Or, for that matter, how George Clooney — a man 16 years older than she is — in photos often seems to be leading her around like a child. I don’t want to be too judgmental — we all have our issues — but if I were her friend I’d urge Amal to take charge of her own life.

      • She is an Aquarious and many of them have the tendencies to find much older husbands-like fatherlike models…Father isues perhaps…I know at least 3 aquarious that chose semilar father-like husbands because they felt more secure and at ease.

      • I agree, Janet. She certainly comes across as lacking in assertiveness. Unusual in a barrister. Amal has always been a careful networker, a sift through her career will demonstrate that. She likes to be associated with powerful people and high-profile work.The downside of that, as I think ESR has said, is that she will never develop her own strengths, find her own feet, and actually lead on something.

  32. OMG, What is it happening with George? He looks like his father. He’s getting older every day. He’s nice in tailcoat. He reminds me of Cary Grant. The 2007 Dior dress is one of my favourite of all the times. I fell in love when I saw it. The golden years of Galliano. And this one is very similar, that’s really. I think I prefer the original version, but in any case Amal’s dress is a terrific dress. The hair is the only thing that I don’t like. I remember the  night, in the ivory McCartney jumpsuit, for example, when her hair was flawless and more natural. I don’t like seeing them in a fashion party. Cinema or charity events are ok, but I’m really surprised to see them here.

    • George has a new movie coming up in a couple of weeks, “Tomorrow-Land” so that creates momentum for the film release:) It actually has a interesting trailer, i may go see it:)

  34. Giving the Galliano dress a second thought- we all know that a dress isn´t simply a dress. By wearing a piece created by him Mrs Wintour has exerted her influence on Amal as a high profile human rights lawyer to tell the world “Money can buy almost everybody”. The message is subtle but clear.
    I wouldn´t be too surprised if Amal woke up one morning not knowing where she belongs- or being bored to tears by living her life in the media.
    Amal´s unique beauty draws from the fact that she has more to offer than her looks- she is not a superficial person. She could be a role model for many young women but she might lose her qualities choosing the wrong company and living with a husband who is what he is: an actor.
    By the way- I quite like the suggestion someone has made in this blog- why not indicate your nationality? Our comments surely reflect our different cultures.
    I´ m German by the way

    • Too funny. I’m Greek-Canadian, married a Lebanese man, currently living between New Zealand and Australia.

      Makes no difference Andrea, people are the same wherever you go. Especially in the First World.

      Besides, Anna Wintour’s and Hollywood’s reach is far – they reach all of us and tells us what to watch, buy and think.

      • Hi jon321,
        you seem to be a great mix of all sorts of nationalities!
        Yes, you are right- the reach of money and power is far indeed and it´s true- we are all human, we all want a good life. But the question for Amal and for all people who are fascinated by her is if a Hollywood life is a good life. We can see how much weight Amal has lost and that her sweet and open smile she had in Venice has changed somehow. Are the stylish clothes worth it?

      • Nope. Not worth it. Therein lies the vicarious pleasure of watching other people have what you haven’t got – and being relieved you haven’t got it!!
