She is one of the most-watched women in the world and can afford to shop anywhere she likes, not to mention having couture fashion houses clambering to dress her. But Amal Clooney not only doesn't employ a fashion stylist, but she has also been doing most of her shopping quietly and discreetly online at British brand WilliamVintage. The Lebanese-born lawyer has been enamoured with the online vintage shop for two years now, constantly rotating her wardrobe with one-off pieces from the collection, which is owned and stocked by British couture expert William Banks-Blaney.
The star is expecting twins with megastar actor George Clooney, 55, and style-watchers can’t wait to see what maternity looks she will be rocking. On Wednesday the lawyer looked business-like in a black two-piece 1959 suit by Yves Saint Laurent from WilliamVintage, teamed with a baby blue leather tote. The chic outfit showed off just a hint of her neat bump as she headed off in the sunshine to address the UN.
Amal kicked off the year wearing the brand to the World Economic Forum in Davos alongside some of the biggest talkers and leaders in the world. The stunning International human rights lawyer, 39, outshone her fellow attendees in a vintage, sequinned 1963 Chanel gown with dark green pumps and a midnight blue velvet clutch bag.
She wore a red, white and blue Mary Farrin dress with puff sleeves from 1975 when she spoke at the Foundation for Justice launch in mid January.
And last week she was picture perfect again in a WV monochrome Sixties swing dress with matching overcoat and oversize shades. The leggy star arrived at the Ritz hotel in Paris in the elegant get-up, clutching the ultimate accessory by her side – dashing husband George Clooney.
Perhaps the most stand-out dress that Amal has ever bought from WV was the black sequin Saint Laurent dress from 1981 that she wore on the red carpet in Berlin in February last year. Another find from the vintage brand which launched in 2009, the silk, bead and micro sequins gown featured a transparent chiffon trailing overskirt that made her look like a Disney princess.
"Amal has impeccable taste and understands fashion perfectly," said Banks-Blaney. Other WilliamVintage clients include Victoria Beckham, Tilda Swinton, Emma Thompson, Helena Bonham Carter, Gillian Anderson, Lily Allen and Lana del Rey.
