George Clooney and Amal Clooney at the American Film Institute’s Life Achievement Award Tribute

Posted on June 08, 2018

And now, Amal and Mr. Amal step out for the latter to pick up his end-of-life award.  Seriously, are we wrong to think 57 is a little young for this sort of thing?




There was a time when folks were so enamored of her that we didn’t feel like we could say this openly without being eviscerated, but since people have a slightly more rounded view of her now, we feel a little leeway to just rip the band-aid off and get it out there.

Miss Girl’s got some vaguely tacky tendencies. There. We said it.

In a way, it’s sort of fascinating to us. She is clearly a highly intelligent and accomplished woman. And given the way she utilizes it, we think it’s fair to say she really likes fashion. And yet she can’t seem to master it, no matter how much of it is open to her and how low her difficulty setting is (i.e., tall, thin, angular women are the perennial muse for almost all designers). Many have noted her resemblance to Anne Hathaway over the years. We point that out only to compare Anne’s extremely adept red carpeting vs. Amal’s years of misteps and false starts. Harsh? Yes, ma’am. But it needed to be said. Barbie would take one look at this cheap-looking frock and slap the person who suggested it to her.

Amal, everything about your looks and life suggest a woman of devastating chicness. For whatever reasons, none of which are damning or speak bad of you, you just haven’t managed it, dear. Get yourself someone who can guide you through this. Call Anna Wintour if you have to. Call Michelle Obama or Meghan Markle or Catherine Cambridge or any of the other ridiculously powerful, accomplished, stylish women in your contacts folder. Come on, now. You’ve got crazy options, lady. Bad prom gowns shouldn’t even exist in your world, let alone show up on your back.
