Last night I had a little too much to drink. I woke up with a headache and needed a quick cure. My co-worker, Erika Ostroff, is a health nut (and has been trying to overhaul my diet forever) and instead of letting me eat cold pizza and stay in bed all day watching Friends on Netflix, she insisted we get some fresh air and grab juices to cure our hangovers. When in Los Angeles, right?

After sipping on a ginger, lemon, apple, and spinach concoction — which, I’ll admit, actually worked better than bingeing on grease and ‘90s TV — I walked bleary-eyed into the rain (raining! In Los Angeles!) and while waiting at the crosswalk, I saw a mirage: Amal Clooney.

Stepping out of the back of a car came long legs first, a head full of curls second, and what looked like two garment bags, to follow. Because I wasn’t completely cognizant, I was uncertain whether it was the newlywed, but I sucked in another sip of the super liquid and quickly put two and two together: The gossip wasn’t true and she’ll totally be attending the Golden Globes on Sunday. Rumors had it that her husband, who is receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award for his “outstanding contributions in the world of entertainment,” was going to walk the red carpet with his friend Cindy Crawford. But it seems like his wife will be on his side after all.

Walking into a tailor, it’s clear that she’s still doing some last minute prepping. For her wedding, she wore Alexander McQueen, Giambattista Valli, Stella McCartney, and Oscar de la Renta. The red garment bags were discreet and didn’t give anything away, but guesses are that she’ll wear something from ODLR’s last collection.  While that would be a sweet tribute to the designer who custom made her wedding gown, the fashion industry is abuzz that she will wear a custom Dior gown.

Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury even told Yahoo Style that she would be doing Mrs. Clooney’s for the event. “Amal will be in makeup head-to-toe,” she revealed.“With Supermodel Body Lotion and custom-blended Magic Cream from my own collection… and I predict there will be some big lip moments on the red carpet this season. There certainly will be a gorgeous lip for Amal’s look.” She even got her hair colored this week by Miles Haddad at the Bungalow Salon in Los Angeles.

Tomorrow we’ll see it all come together but until then, at least I’m feeling better!
