This, of course is world famous movie star George Clooney. Not to be confused with a wannabe starlet, Amal Clooney has already made a name for herself in the world of law.  Born Amal Alamuddin in 1978, she and the rest of her family hailed from Beirut, Lebanon. Once the Lebanese Civil War began, Amal’s family then moved to Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire. After completing high school, Clooney attended St. Hughes College where she graduated with a BA in Jurisprudence, which is basically an undergraduate degree in law.

Her law career took her all the way to the The Hague, which is a seat in the Supreme Court, where she worked in the Office of the Prosecutor at the UN Special Tribunal for Lebanon. With such a high powered career it can be hard to understand how she would have crossed paths with movie star, George Clooney. The two met in Italy at Lake Como where George Clooney famously resides. After being introduced by a mutual friend, George then pursued her for months, calling and writing love letters.

From red carpet events to shopping trips, Amal is always the epitome of regal style. It’s as if she was always groomed for celebrity life. Her go to designers are usually Atelier Versace, Marchesa, or Dolce & Gabbana. Against George’s classic black tuxes, Amal’s gowns are always a beautiful artistic expression. As Hollywood wives go, Amal Clooney could easily be ranked among the top five. Brains and beauty with impeccable style to boot will definitely keep her on best dressed lists.

When, singer, Florence Welch hit the scene in the early 2010’s with her band, The Machine, the fashion world collectively breathed a collective sigh of relief.

There had been almost a starvation for a band with a beautiful, yet fashion forward front woman reminiscent of the days of No Doubt and Blondie. Practically overnight, the fiery red head, who hails from Camberwell, London, England, was scooped up by almost every major fashion house, having performed at the Chanel runway show in 2012 as well as having Gucci design the wardrobe for her 2011 summer tour.  This would subsequently result in a long relationship with the house of Gucci as she has become a muse for Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele.

Despite all of the fashion press, Florence Welch + The Machine were still relatively unknown. Welch had had somewhat of a turbulent childhood, having had the traumatic experience of watching her grandmother commit suicide. By age fourteen she picked up a drinking habit and was known to frequent wild parties. Fortunately, Welch was able to kick the habit, and despite being diagnosed with dyslexia, was able to do well in school.  She would later drop out of the Camberwell College of Arts to focus on her music career. In 2009, Florence and her band, The Machine released their debut album, Lungs, which debuted at number seventeen on the UK charts.  By 2011, they were already creating a buzz in the music world, having had two successful albums.   The latter of which debuted at number one on the UK albums chart.  A song from this album would eventually be used in the soundtrack for Snow White and the Huntsman.  After releasing the single Sweet Nothing with Calvin Harris, Welch would receive her first Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording.

In recent years, Welch has had much success apart from her band.  She’s collaborated with Lady Gaga on a song for Gaga’s latest album, and also put her vocals to use on the Wonder Woman soundtrack. You can still find her beasting every red carpet event she attends and as the brand ambassador for Gucci, you can be assured she’ll most likely be the best dressed.

Never has there been more of a spotlight on fashion house Versace than right now.

After a successful spring collection, which was a tribute to the late Gianni Versace, as well as the hit FX TV show The Assassination of Gianni Versace, the Italian house is bigger than ever. The world has become obsessed with the Versace motif of the 90’s that once graced the backs of Biggie Smalls and P. Diddy. Thankfully, Donatella Versace decided to keep the train going with her resort 2019 collection.

Many of Versace’s signatures such as the Medusa, greek prints and gold hardware were present.  Another signature could be the broad shoulders that was seen on long top coats and leather jackets. This little accent could be a nod to the 80’s when Versace was just beginning to become a fashion heavy weight.  Broad shoulder jackets were complimented with t-shirts that bare the house’s logo, which will no doubt be a wonderful addition to anyone’s wardrobe. The t-shirts, which were shown in either black or white, was worn under dresses or tube tops ( Yes there are tube tops). Along with the t-shirts, the Verace logo was also seen on totes, fannypacks and on the sleeves of jackets and sweaters.

Bold prints are not uncommon when considering the Versace girl.  One would easily stand out in a crowd with any of the looks which featured that special Versace print. Many of the looks were printed head to toe.  It would take a certain level of confidence to rock one, however, that wouldn’t be a problem judging by their demographic.

Fringe was a major factor in this collection, having been seen on dresses, skirts, the shoulder of a beautiful jacket and the bottom of shoulder bags. The references to their work from the 90’s was a delightful mix of nostalgia and innovation. It’s truly a talent to be able to refer to the past all while giving the customer something new, albeit something that the customer didn’t even know they wanted or were missing.

Many of the looks featured tons of that signature Balmain glitter with some including mirror tiled dresses, pearl embroidered jackets and cardigans and heavily studded booties. Further research into the collection showed that most of the items aren’t for the financially squeamish. With most of the embellished garments ranging from $11,000 to a whopping $41,000 for a single dress, it would be safe to say that snagging one of these pricey duds would surely get you loads of attention. The more toned down (if you want to call it that) looks were the purple and blue raffia pants and skirts with some featuring sunset motifs.

The “logomania” craze, which has taken over almost every major fashion house, was not lost on Balmain. Many of the jackets, slacks, bags, and scarfs featuring the “Balmain Paris” logo will no doubt be one of their biggest sellers among the young Hollywood and hip hop stars alike.

In the fashion world, Balmain is often criticized for creating outfits that far exceed most of the world’s bank accounts. This, however, is what the house was built on.  Pierre Balmain was known for creating one of a kind haute couture dresses, that were well made and evoked an overwhelming since of luxury.  With the world in such a dire state, it’s a relief to be able to aspire to a better way of living.
