Doll, like Dino used to croon, When the stars make you drool like a pasta fazool, that’s amore. Well, last week, no star shined brighter in the party galaxy than gorgeous Amal Alamuddin Clooney at her Italian wedding. But, hold onto your grappa, doll, because the dress we’ve chosen as the best party look of the week might just surprise you. It’s not the striped Dolce & Gabbana dress she wore upon her arrival in Venice or the red Alexander McQueen dress she donned for the rehearsal dinner. It’s not even the Oscar de la Renta wedding gown – gorgeous as it was – or the ivory Stella McCartney pantsuit and matching hat that she sported to the civil ceremony. The party look that had us all clinking our glasses of Prosecco was the Gatsby-style Oscar de la Renta dress that she changed into for the reception. Covered in silver and pearl beads and featuring layers of beaded fringe, it was the perfect frock for loosening up and dancing the night away.
But here’s the best part: Amal’s splendiferous shift, part of Signor de la Renta’s Fall 2014 Collection, used to be an ankle-length gown. Our gal, Amal, had it shortened to make it the perfect, jazzy dress for sashaying. Way to make fashion work for you, doll. Back to our guy, Dino. When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet, you’re in love. Signora Clooney, we sure were in love with your dancing dress. Brava, baby.
