    Dressing George Clooney’s fiancee: 5 ideas for the intellectual bride

    The impossible has finally happened—George Clooney is engaged. The world’s most elusive bachelor is finally settling down with international attorney Amal Alamuddin. A brainy brunette who holds degrees from Oxford University and NYU, the newly betrothed beauty will require a bridal look fit for Hollywood royalty with a Lake Como backdrop. The bridal collections lent themselves a sense of quiet elegance that the future Mrs. Clooney would appreciate with subtle detailing, pared-back necklines, and sweeping trains. Alberta Ferretti showed a subdued strapless dress accented with a tulle cape for chilly post-ceremony dancing outside, while Carolina Herrera and Marchesa proved that a hint of skin with an off-the-shoulder dress can be elegant and sensual. Oscar de la Renta accented a strapless trumpet gown with a bejeweled brooch with pearl accent for a vintage feel, but we appreciate the modernity of Vera Wang’s chantilly lace take on the shirtdress that she could wear with flats on the beach.

Really, the wiser move is to pick up one of the far more affordable—and just as pretty!—under-$150 options above.
