By Rosalyn Oshmyansky
The wait is over, and the wedding dress of Amal Alamuddin, George Clooney's wife, has been revealed.
After their wedding on Saturday in Venice, no photos surfaced of the bride fueling speculation about who she chose as her wedding dress designer. All weekend long, she was wearing designers including Dolce and Gabbana, Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney.
Voguewas at Alamuddin's final fitting with de La Renta and head tailor Raffaele IIardo in New York, where de La Renta spoke about the importance of a wedding dress saying it's "the most important dress in the life of a woman."
So for Amal, he created a cream French lace wedding gown with pearls and diamente accents that has an off-the-shoulder neckline and a full train. As Vogue reports, she asked de La Renta about a shorter veil for the wedding dinner and he replied, "No, I think after the wedding you take off the veil altogether; you don't need it anymore. Once you are married, you are married."
Her Cathedral veil had Chantilly lace, beading and crystal embroidery.
She told Vogue about her designer choice, "George and I wanted a wedding that was romantic and elegant, and I can't imagine anyone more able than Oscar to capture this mood in a dress."
As for her hair, the bride chose to have her hair down, and her accessories were personal.
People reports that her jewelry "consisted of natural pearl earrings with square-cut diamond accents, a gift from her parents, Baria and Ramzi Alamuddin."
The 36-year-old human rights lawyer married the 55-year old actor in a private ceremony on Saturday at the Aman Grande in Venice. After a weekend of excitement filled with celebrity guests, nights out in Venice, grand dinners and paparazzi,
the happy couple legally wed yesterday in a civil ceremony at the Venice Palazzo Ca' Loredan, an official council building.
