Sonam slams ‘name-calling’
AMAL Clooney angered fashion designer Tom Ford’s team after deciding at the last moment on a different look for the Met Gala. The 40-yearold human rights lawyer decided just hours before the annual fashion event to arrive in her ‘backup’ outfit by British designer Richard Quinn, according to an article on Tuesday by PageSix.
She stunned in a strapless gown with silver bustier, dark slacks and a long floral train at least four feet long.

When Amal told Ford’s team about the switch “they were annoyed, obviously, but they were gracious, and and said it was fine to go with [another designer], but they would prefer that Amal not wear the dress at all if she wasn’t going to wear it on the Met Ball red carpet”. Fashion forces at Vogue also reportedly urged Amal to stick to the original plan. Ford’s people hoped that if Amal didn’t debut the full-length gown designed to look like a stained-glass window that another star would be able to at a future A-list function.
