Amal Clooney in mink Giambattista Valli in Paris: ridiculous or lovely?

George Clooney & Amal Clooney In Paris

On Sunday (which seems like a lifetime ago), I covered George Clooney & Amal Clooney’s appearance at the Cesars in Paris. George received an honorary Cesar Award for his filmography, and Amal wore a custom Versace gown with ostrich feathers. Thankfully, that was not the end of Amal’s magical fashion tour of Paris. George and Amal stayed in France throughout the weekend, and they were photographed several times, in several different outfits. Amal knows she’s being photographed at all times now, and you can tell that she enjoys fashion and shopping. And now she has a reason to shop even more: she needs maternity clothes!

First off, we have this head-to-toe Giambattista Valli look, which is the horizontal-striped coat and crazy boots. Amal wore that while out to dinner with George. They went to Laperouse. I think the coat is super-fug, and I think the boots are crazy. I might like the boots with a different outfit though, an outfit where the boots would be the centerpiece. Also: the Valli coat has fur panels, and they aren’t made of fake fur either. That’s mink.

Amal also wandered around Paris in a vintage cape dress from one of her favorite shops, William Vintage. You can see those photos here. Then there was a floral maternity dress and a “power-clashing” coat for Amal and George’s departure (by train) from Paris. They returned to England, probably to their country pile. I’m actually okay with both of the pieces of this ensemble, I just don’t think they look great together. That coat needed a solid dress, or that dress needed a solid coat. I guess she didn’t want to wear the mink coat twice!

    Can she shop for George while she’s at it?

    • smith says:

      I despise the way she looks around, looks around, looks around …oh hi Mr. Camera, didn’t know you’d be here.

      • browniecakes says:

        That is true but it predict it will end. She won’t like the cameras being stuck in the babies’ faces.

  2. QQ says:

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE print Clashing so I Love love love This

  3. Maria says:

    Don’t like the horizontal lines and mink in the first coat, but I’m ok with second outfit. Actually I think she looks very nice.

  4. JudyK says:

    Hate the horizontal-striped thing, but LOVE the coat, dress, and boots…best thing I’ve seen her wear.

  5. Aims says:

    Amal is one of those lucky women who makes pregnancy look cute. If I were carrying twins I’d be swollen and walking like the hunchback . So I salute her.

    • JulP says:

      I know, she looks fantastic! I can’t believe she’s carrying twins, she barely looks pregnant!

      • sunshine gold says:

        Well, being that she was probably 95lbs before, an extra 25-30 lbs on her won’t look bad at all. In fact, it’ll probably look great.

    • Emily says:

      Like Amal I’m due in June, only I’m carrying a single baby. I look like I could eat her.

  6. minx says:

    I like both. She looks very happy.

  7. original kay says:

    poor animals :(

    • frisbee says:

      ITA, not that these people care about the animals they are wearing or indeed about anything very much apart from themselves.

      • Marlena says:

        +1000
        If someone wears fur in this day and age and with all the information that is available about how animals are needlessly tortured so that Amal and others can look fine, they are showing how much empathy they are capable of.

    • Lady D says:

      Reduces them to absolute scum in my eyes when they wear fur. Forever and ever.

  8. Wren33 says:

    I actually like the first outfit, but think the second one clashes way too much in terms of print, material, seasonality, etc.

  9. Bridget says:

    I truly do not understand how people can wear fur items anymore.

    • Lyka says:

      Right? Especially because she has access to wear literally anything – as bespoke and glamorous and expensive – as she likes. You’d think someone in the public eye would know better considering how hard PETA and others go after fur wearers.

    • kellybean says:

      Agree. I especially don’t get it when people have pets. I equate it to “would you like someone doing that to your beloved dog or cat?”

      And it seems every other person wears one of those stupid Canada Goose coats with the fur hood where I am (Toronto). I find it disgusting.

    • What-was- that? says:

      She should know better ..it is not OK in the UK to wear fur..Even the Queen does not wear her furs any more due public reaction would be negative….She is a clever woman and yet she is behaving in a truly ignorant way and then she will claim to be for Human Rights..yet is willing to be seen in this!
      There were protests at London Fashion Week about the return of fur by some designers….
      Wearing fur is unsupportable for any except Inuit and native peoples who need it and use the whole animal..a over paid..over hyped ..over publicised woman such as this has just shown her true colours…inconsiderate and narcissistic..

  10. shelley* says:

    I think she looks bloody awful, and nearly always does. She’s great looking but her styling choices are shite….imo.

    • Eska says:

      I agree. She’s so striking, but chooses the worst clothes. It’s always twee overload. She’s got no personal style, imho. She follows fashion’s whims rather than styling herself to what suits her. If I were her I’d Maria Callas the heck out of my wardrobe and get rid of the frou-frou for some sleek cuts and tailoring.

  11. mapley says:

    I think her decision to wear real animal fur and feathers is abhorrent. Animals are skinned alive and/or plucked alive. Leave fur/feathers where it belongs – on the animal.

  12. Jayna says:

    The first outfit is beautiful on her. I love the whole look on her from head to toe, with one exception. At least, I would love it if it were fake mink. I could accept real mink if it is a vintage piece. That doesn’t appear to be the case, or is it?

    I really like the second outfit also.

    I may not like everything Amal wears, but with most celebs dressing like schlubs or nondescript these days, I do get a kick out of checking out Amal’s latest fashion and oftentimes love of color. It’s never dull with Amal with lots of fashion or interesting pieces put together.

  13. Zuzus Girl says:

    There is no excuse for wearing mink in this day and age.

  14. Bitchy architect says:

    Love the boots in the second photo!!
    Need those! Does anyone know what make they are?

  15. Shame on her for wearing fur, but even if it was faux it would still be ugly.

  16. robyn says:

    Don’t like those broad stripes but the look seems to be in. With the variety and scope of the clothes that she wears, I think designers must be giving her dresses for free. She’s a walking mannequin but she looks great!

    PS: I always assume that synthetic fur is being used nowadays.

  17. Qzie says:

    Are the boots in the first photo even really boots, or just things wrapped around her legs and she’s wearing flats? I can’t tell–she’s wearing those tights (which look kind of meh, more black would have been better)–which seem to show at the bottom. Need an explanation. Help.

    • Zucchini says:

      They’re actually stilettos with wrap-around leather straps that keep going up and up and around. I think they’re supposed to be worn without hosiery for max impact.

  18. Laura says:

    I think it’s hideous, but I love it! She looks like she has fun with her style, and rarely looks cookie cutter

  19. Gene123 says:

    What designer still uses real fur in their designs?

  20. bees says:

    I don’t believe she’s pregnant. Isn’t she due next month? If you want to carry a pillow pregnancy, shouldn’t you at least research what size you should be at eight months if you’re carrying twins?

  21. LP says:

    “And they are made of fake fur either. That’s mink.” Do you mean “aren’t'”?

  22. Tara says:

    Don’t like at all
    Boots are very in fight with her outfit.
    Don’t these people have fashion eye or adviser?

  23. Zucchini says:

    Always thought she was ridic and very “nouveau riche” with her outfits and manner, but wearing fur, ostrich feathers, and so on is just disgusting. Saw an old vid of hers pre-George where she was supposed to be doing lawyering and she walked into a room and had eyes excitedly darting around to see who was looking at her, just as she does with the paps now.

    George uses her to get headlines and stay in the news. If she weren’t trying so hard to be a fashionista and churning out these ridic outfits, they’d never get in the news. She’s a handsome woman and looks good with the teeny bit of extra pregnancy weight, but normally she’s quite mannish and the famehoing just cringeworthy.

    • Nimbolicious says:

      +1000, Zucchini. Vom, vom and more vom: the crass outfits, the zero effs given about animal cruelty (despite all the crap they spout off about human rights), the desperate attention seeking. I feel like the pregnancy is about accessorizing their stupid brand; they’re too shallow and self-absorbed for it to be about anything else.

    • Sarah says:

      I still think this marriage is a contract marriage…wouldn’t be surprised if they end up getting divorced once the babies arrive. Funny thing about that is, you guys hear about that new show on E! called “Arrangement”, which is about a contract marriage between a well-known male actor and a female actress? George’s “marriage” is the first one that I thought of, except that Amal isn’t an actress.

      • SideEyeSally says:

        Sarah, we seem to be of like minds. I also thought of them when I saw the commercial about “The Arrangement”. We’ll have to tune in and compare notes.

  24. Goldenretriever says:

    I’m sorry but it is abhorrent that this woman wears fur. Agreed with the poster above – total scum… All for fashion. Basic and lame.

  25. bella says:

    Those outfits are horrible and don’t match at al,l not even when going for the non-matching look– if you know what I mean. Both boots are horrible too. I loved her dress at the Cesar awards and she looked beautiful. But these looks are a giant NO!!

  26. Anastasia Beaverhuisen says:

    Amal has zero compassion for the welfare of animals and we’re supposed to be thrilled she’s going to have a baby to care for. Riiiiight.

  27. Slushee says:

    I don’t begrudge her her obvious enjoyment of fashion, but this lady does not dress well. Her style is kind of immature, right? She dresses like someone gorging on shopping. Buying everything and anything that she has a whim for without any reflection on what suits her or what her personal style is. It’s really… impulsive, over the top. Hopefully she’ll settle down and maybe repeat an item?

    Dressing well takes discipline. She dresses like it’s a competitive sport.
