Amal Alamuddin wore Oscar De La Renta to marry George Clooney

Amal Alamuddin wore a dress by Oscar de la Renta to make an honest man of longtime bachelor George Clooney on Saturday.

WWD has learnt from the Clooney camp that it was the New York based label, Oscar de la Renta that dressed the bride on her big day.

Dominican-American fashion designer Oscar de la Renta is famed for his ultra glamorous evening-wear, think Upper East side.

Despite rumours that American Vogue had snagged the rights to the wedding images, it has also been confirmed that it is in fact People magazine which will feature images from the long-awaited nuptials.

While no images of the dress have yet been released (the no camera policy made short work of any sneak peeks), if Alamuddin's pre and post-wedding wardrobes are anything to go by, the dress is likely to be a thing of beauty.

Alamuddin has spent some time not to mention serious money on nailing her wedding wardrobe.


The human rights barrister first stepped out on Friday in a black and white striped dress by Dolce & Gabbana. She was then pictured later that evening at the rehearsal dinner in a red patterned dress by Alexander McQueen.

Post-wedding it was a white embroidered lace haute couture design by Giambattista Valli without even the tiniest hint of a hangover to accompany it. 

And today for the civil ceremony, in a look vaguely reminiscent of Bianca Jagger's Yves Saint Laurent white tuxedo for her wedding to Mick Jagger, Alamuddin chose a stylish tailored Stella McCartney trouser suit complete with matching over-sized hat.

Not forgetting the groom of course, Giorgio Armani was the tailor of choice for Clooney's wedding tuxedo.
