WE WATCHED FOR YEARS as Renée Zell­weger, Elisabetta Canalis and Stacy Keibler en­tered and left George Clooney’s life. The orig­i­nal ‘McDreamy’ ER in the mid 90s, so when news of his en­gage­ment to Bri­tishLe­banese hu­man-rights lawyer Amal Ala­mud­din broke in May, we could not be­lieve it was true. Fi­nally, the 53-year-old, who seemed des­tined to a life of throw­ing par­ties on his boat on Lake Como and drink­ing Ne­spresso on his own, had found the right woman to tame him. The web­site The­busi­ness­wom­an­media.com clev­erly turned the match on its head by say­ing that it was, in fact, George who had scored. ‘In­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed bar­ris­ter Amal Ala­mud­din mar­ries an ac­tor,’ it de­clared, be­fore de­tail­ing 36-year-old Amal’s im­pres­sive CV. And it’s not just her brain that’s im­pres­sive – her wardrobe is equally en­vi­able. At their wed­ding in Venice, she stepped out in gor­geous de­signer look after look, with George ad­mit­ting he was ‘mar­ry­ing up’. We agree, George!
