See Amal Alamuddin's Gatsby-Style, After-Wedding Dress
Finally! Here is your first glimpse at Amal Alamuddin's post-wedding dress, the one she wore following her vow exchange with George Clooney.
The "festive, Gatsby-style party frock" from Oscar de la Renta was teased in Vogue on Tuesday and can be seen in this photo of the international human rights lawyer during her reception.

The dress is from de la Renta’s fall 2014 collection and was shortened to Alamuddin's mid-thigh, "to show off her endless legs and to make it a true dancing dress," per Vogue, whose editor, Anna Wintour, was among the guests. The fashion bible was on hand to capture her final fitting of her wedding gown and afterparty dress, both created by the famed designer.
To complete Amal's post-ceremony look, de la Renta paired the dress with hand-embroidered beaded silver pumps. As he "proudly" admired his work, Oscar declared: "You look hot!"
No argument there. In fact, Amal shined during the entire wedding weekend celebration.
From the red and black custom poppy print Alexander McQueen dress Amal wore during the rehearsal dinner, to the Stella McCartney white two-piece bespoke suit she rocked during her and George's civil ceremony, there is no doubt that this British barrister is a fashion star.
Of course, all eyes were on what George's leading lady would wear on the big day. Oscar de la Renta crafted the custom, off-the-shoulder cream dress, which was made with ivory tulle and 14 yards of Chantilly lace.

"He is the man every woman wants to hug!" Amal told Vogue of the iconic designer. "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. Meeting him made the design process all the more magical, as he is so warm and such a gentleman."
Clearly, he was the right man for the job.
