By George Clooney he's got it


Steal his Royal Wedding style

Respected actor, director, tequila entrepreneur and Nespresso salesman George Clooney brought Hollywood glamour and Lake Como chic to the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Clooney’s combination of grey suit, blue shirt and yellow accessories (no, we are not talking about his accomplished barrister wife Amal) were an Italian style statement in the capital of England executed with American flair.

Looking more relaxed than David Beckham in his stitched up Dior Homme suit from new designer Kim Jones, it's no wonder that George was the life of the wedding reception, reportedly pouring his own Casamigos tequila behind the bar and twirling both Markle and the Duchess of Cambridge around the floor. We are not sure if he participated in the games of Beer Pong orchestrated by tennis champion Serena Williams.

To be the life of your own wedding we suggest stealing Clooney's Como look (Amal is not required as it may upset your future husband).

The only thing we suggest taking a second glance at is the shoes - perhaps something with less of a prison guard silhouette would be best, unless that's your thing.

Another thing worth copying to the letter is Clooney's activism. The actor has been a longtime supporter of gay rights, appearing in Dustin Lance Black's (That's Mr Tom Daley to you) staging of the play Prop 8 in LA, way back in 2012.

"It is astonishing that gay and lesbian Americans are still treated as second-class citizens," Clooney said at the time of his casting. "I am confident that, very soon, the laws of this nation will reflect the basic truth that gay and lesbian people — like all human beings — are born equal in dignity and rights."
