LBD for the win.
Sometimes, celebrities wear something so complex and complicated, the only thing you can do is admire it from, well, your computer screen. Sure, you can incorporate elements of it into your own wardrobe, like Amal Clooney’s princesscore moment in Venice yesterday, but getting the exact look isn’t a cake walk. That said, sometimes an A-lister wears something so low-key, you simply have to copy it because, well, you can without much effort — and such was the case with another Clooney look that’s so attainable, I’m literally recreating it tomorrow night with what I already have in my closet.
Clooney has been serving style on a gold-plated platter for all of her Venice International Film Festival outings. First, there was this mod-inspired mini moment with the subtle sexy heel trend I’ve been living in, then there was that ethereal lace-and-tulle number that was just plain dreamy, and now it’s the most low-key outfit that needs your attention immediately. Sure, it’s not flashy or in-your-face, but that’s exactly what makes it headline-worthy.
The human rights lawyer was photographed walking on a dock with husband George Clooney (probably en route to the boat they were about to take to their next destination), coordinating in low-key looks. He went with khaki pants and a blue polo, while Amal opted for a little black dress, sandals, and a raffia shoulder bag.

Clooney’s A-line mini had a quietly sexy scoop neck, thin straps, and a slightly flared skirt that flowed in the wind. The dress’s material appeared textured in a cable-knit design that instantly elevates the otherwise simple style. That said, the beauty is in its simplicity, and her look reminds me that a good outfit doesn’t need to be overly loud or out-there. Sometimes, the most fuss-free piece makes for the most stellar look. Case in point: Clooney’s LBD.
The LBD is timeless and can be styled in so many ways, making it a closet essential you’ll reach for again and again. Clooney wore it with summery staples like sandals and a straw bag, but you can make it errand-friendly with white sneakers and a baseball cap or slip into tall black boots and throw on a leather jacket when the temperatures dip in the fall.
A black dress is the pillar of a well-rounded capsule wardrobe, and thanks to Clooney, I was reminded of its fashion powers. Shop more LBDs below.
