So, yes, George Clooney is notorious everywhere; for having the face of an angel, being a successful actor/director/writer/producer, for his generous humanitarian gestures, he is also quite the political activist. It’s no wonder his wedding is making headlines; costing an estimate of approximately £8m, with the likes of Matt Damon, Sandra Bullock and Cindy Crawford attending, water-taxis, 5 star hotels and poolside cocktail parties… sounds like quite a party!
I couldn’t help but notice though, many headlines seem to have looked over the fact that two people were being wedded here, not just George Clooney…
His beautiful wife Amal Alamuddin has been over-shadowed in press headlines on several occasions. For example, by the BBC (“Film Star George Clooney Gets Married In Venice”, Sky News (“George Clooney Ties Knot In Venice Ceremony”) and The Guardian (“George Clooney’s Wedding Weekend In Venice…”)
Amal Alamuddin should be a role-model for women everywhere. She is a successful Human Rights Lawyer, who has served as counsel to the United Nations. She also happens to be a published author. Oh, and tri-lingual. Oh and one more thing, shes gorgeous and is a style-icon to many. Bringing together sophistication and simplicity but without being afraid to step outside the box. Many have said George is in fact ‘marrying-up’!
The girl is just as newsworthy as her husband! Even more so now she has now made the transition from a Human Rights Lawyer, unknown to Hollywood, to an international style icon.
Let me leave you with this, something that made me laugh but makes a very good point…
Buzzfeed’s headline following up the wedding was “Accomplished Lawyer Amal Alamuddin Marries That Actor From “ER””
