Amal Clooney Fights For The Poor In £168,000 Maternity Ensembles
Six months pregnant and carrying twins, elegant Amal Clooney could possibly be forgiven for choosing comfort over fashion.
However plainly the human rights lawyer is taking impending motherhood in her very stylish stride — not to say in 5-inch heels.
Since saying her pregnancy final month, the 39-year-previous wife of Hollywood star George has dressed her rising bump in a series of subtle designer ensembles.
With out an elasticated waistband or billowing gown in sight, comfort clearly isn’t a huge concern — and neither is worth.
Whereas most expectant mothers may favour cheap maternity wear (after all, it will possibly ferragamo gold belt black leather only be worn for just a few months at most), Mrs Clooney has already stepped out in tens of hundreds of pounds value of designer gear, much of which is unlikely to fit her slender body after the infants have been born.
From an embellished coat by Valentino for £5,000 to a £120,000 Atelier Versace crimson-carpet gown, fashion editor DINAH VAN TULLEKEN reveals the secrets and techniques of Amal’s £168,135 pregnancy wardrobe.
On the Cesar movie festival in Paris with George, Amal chose this £120,000 Atelier Versace gown, finished magnificently with layered ombre feathers.
Amal appears to be like relaxed and elegant on this softly fitting velvet costume (£1,400), hand-stitched pink cashmere coat (£3,060) and matching bag (£2,010), all from Bottega Veneta — although did she really need a bag to match a costume that she might wear for under a very brief time She also donned one other pair of five-inch heeled court sneakers, this time from Prada (£600). Complete: £7,070.
For a significant speech to the United Nations, Amal’s again to her regular tailored workwear in a black vintage Christian Dior skirt swimsuit by Yves St Laurent, £3,000 from William Vintage, London, with a cropped jacket that sits elegantly above her neat bump. The heels are £780 from Salvatore Ferragamo. Complete: £3,780.
George and Amal have introduced that they’re expecting twins — however she doesn’t appear comfy with the world seeing her bump, hiding it underneath a red Stella McCartney coat (£1,995). Never normally pictured with out heels, she’s also picked up some trendy biker boots, £750. Whole: £2,745.
One more Sixties-inspired silhouette which doesn’t cling to her bump, Amal’s yellow costume and coat are by Bottega Veneta at a value of around £3,000. Oversized shades and a ladylike tote completed a basic look.
Still travelling in style, but Amal opted for something a bit comfier this weekend in a cosy, unfastened-fitting cashmere coat by Akris, priced at £3,805. She paired it with sensible flat Jimmy Choo boots at £850 and a simple jumper and trousers. Total: £4,655.
Retaining a low profile comes at a worth. Around four months pregnant but not ready to go public with her information, Amal seemed effortlessly informal in an understated cream jumper from Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini (£455) and gray denims from Body (£235). She added low-heeled shoe-field recent Penelope Chilvers tan ferragamo gold belt black leather tasselled boots (£475). Total: £1,165.

She hadn’t but announced her pregnancy — but the often tailor-made-to-perfection Amal raised eyebrows when she stepped out with George in this unstructured floral silk Dolce & Gabbana gown with black trim. Complete: £1,500.
It’s a far cry from her traditional determine-hugging favourites, however looser Sixties types like this one are quick changing into Amal’s go-to look. This monochrome Pierre Cardin-fashion shift dress and matching swing coat with geometric print detail date again to 1966. Mrs Clooney picked it up from William Vintage, London, where pieces like this sell for around £3,000.
An attention grabbing look fresh from Valentino’s 2017/2018 pre-autumn catwalk. Busy prints on the £2,000 gown and embellished jacket, £5,000, disguise Amal’s increasing waistline. She added £2,500 leather-based boots from the identical design house. Complete: £9,500.
What a unbelievable outfit for a date evening in Paris! Combining faux fur stripes and an intricate floral print, you’ll never guess there are two rapidly growing babies beneath it.
