Amal and George Clooney were in Italy this weekend. They were seen out and about in Rome, and they got pap’d on their way to dinner on Saturday – go here to see. Then on Sunday, they made a visit to the Vatican. They attended the “A Wall, A Bridge” seminar organized by the Pontifical Foundation Scholars, as part of the Vatican’s multi-faith World Peace Conference. George and Amal also got to meet Pope Francis!
For Sunday’s trip to the Vatican, Amal wore this Atelier Versace ensemble which… the dress is fine. The turban-esque hat is a bit much though. I know many women like to cover their hair for a papal audience, but it’s not actually part of the dress code (I looked it up). You don’t have to wear a hat or a head-cover of any kind when you visit the Vatican or when you have a papal audience. Which says to me that Amal just liked this Eva Mendes-esque Turban of IDGAF. Also, the whole look is very Jackie O and this isn’t the first time that Amal has channeled a Kennedy-esque look. I think George gets off on that. As for the dress code… skirts are supposed to be knee-length or longer. I think Amal’s skirt is just a shade too high.
During their audience with Pope Francis, the pope gave George a medal for his work with humanitarian issues and the arts. The pope gave medals to several celebrities on Sunday, including Salma Hayek and Richard Gere. You can see more photos here.
