    The show business wedding of the year has taken place in Venice, Italy. George Clooney has married Lebanese lawyer Amal Alamuddin.

    'To keep out the uninvited, 400 security staff were on hand. Hotel staff not directly involved in the party were kept away from the celebrations and asked to give up their mobile phones, according to Il Gazzettino newspaper; The presence of American Vogue’s Anna Wintour, provided a clue as to which publication had bought up the exclusive picture rights.'

    The more I see her the more beautiful she is. She is a very smart dresser, I love her style, she wears everything so well. What a lucky man he is to have found her. Oh and she is smart too.

    "Much to do about nothing" in my opinion. I can't figure out who would give a "flying fig" about George Clooney getting married.

    Love that quote. I spent the weekend with a sick dog pacing in circles for hours. The Amal & Intern George kept me occupied. She's loving the camera, & those clothes, accessories. I wondered how she afforded all on a barrister's salary, until someone, somewhere said her parent had $$$.

    Still, Prada, D&G, etc. that's a lot to throw around. And the ring...long way from Darfur.

    Well, I suppose I would. I love juxtaposition of text.

    I am sorry. I don't understand the correlation between her ring and Darfur. TIA

    It's me & a glass of wine & Clooney with the Darfur interest & sending soooo much money on a ring when it could be used for one of his charities there. Just my reverse snobbery rearing its pointy head.

    MRS CLOONEY UNDER FIRE AS THE NEW KIM KARDASHIAN


    1412291515045_Image_galleryImage_Mandatory_Credit_Photo_by.JPG

    When this picture emerged, I started to become a bit uneasy with the entire event.
    I mean - really? How does one manage to sit down in this? Or even walk the stairs?
    One gush of wind and this voyeur-inviting lampshade (skirt) flips UP like an umbrella.


    Fortunately, Sebastian Shakespeare of The Daily Mail came to my rescue with an opnion by Natalia Naish, co-creator of Your Barrister Boyfriend :

    As the details of their four-day wedding emerge — the caseloads of tequila, the never-ending parade of Amal’s designer dresses, the boatloads of grinning celebrities, and the $13 million (£8 million) price tag — it all begins to seem slightly unseemly and in-your-face, especially for a couple who profess to be extremely private

    The blog he mentions no longer features the entire tongue-in-the-cheek article by Natalia Naish, or maybe I cannot find it, but you can find it here:

    I just have to say, IMO, this seemed like a really classy affair. It was not filmed for the E Network. Her wedding dress was gorgeous. She is gorgeous. They both seemed really happy and I am glad when 2 people find each other and know it is right. George seems to have finally found a woman of substance.

    This was no Kardashian/West wedding. JMV

    I agree that it was beautiful, joyous. I was Deweyed on another forum for suggesting that there's a hole in the ozone layer, there are children who go to bed hungry, there are girls being circumcised, there are bullies everywhere. I'm beginning to sound like Jagger in 'Gimme Shelter. I felt that perhaps subtly might enter the picture?

    And while I feel that anyone should have the kind of weeding they want, lavish or otherwise, in light of the conditions in the world, perhaps a bit more restraint?? As in not spending an obscene amount of money on a wedding?? If the two are really interested in the plight of the poor, disenfranchised, the situation in the Gaza Strip which Mrs Clooney called a 'horror.' Maybe some of that could have been channeled into more worthy causes than a bridal day. But I cannot deny that emotional tide of brides & weddings. Just my reverse snobbery.

    The response post was that Amal & her parents are independently wealthy. That's why there's a blog dedicated to everything she wears, clothing, purses, shoes, sunglasses. I leave you to your opinions, you have mine. It's just so unseemly that a man who has spent decades running away from the media should run toward it. Perhaps he should have said this is what my future bride wants. And too bad if you don't like the size of the diamond. My money, my rules, however disingenuous they might seem. OK that's my rant.

    NORWEGIAN WOMAN SOMEHOW HAS ENDED UP MARRIED TO THE ULTIMATE SILVER FOX


    The Guardian reminds us:

    To celebrate George Clooney's much publicised wedding, Ad Break decided to remind you of this 2012 Norwegian advert which has a woman waking to discover that somehow or other she has ended up married to the ultimate silver fox. There are obvious echoes of The Hangover as she pieces it all together and Clooney very ably contributes to the comedy. The text at the end translates as: "Some people are lucky ... the rest of us are well-advised to save." Indeed.
