12 Hidden Details On Amal Clooney’s Wedding Dress You Didn’t Know About
8. Her mother wanted to add additional layers of tulle to the skirt
According to Vogue, Amal’s mother welled up when she first saw her step out in the dress at the final fitting. Despite her awe and astonishment of seeing her daughter in a wedding dress, she made a comment about adding more layers of tulle to the dress. Her mother’s desire for additional tulle was denied by the committee who argued that holding the train of the dress might become too difficult if the dress was too heavy and voluminous.
7. The dress was not pure white
Despite initial speculation that the De La Renta design was pure white, the final fitting and insider scoop from Vogue proved it was not! The gown was actually a subtle shade of ivory rather than a stark white for a softer look. In the exclusive final fitting, the floor was covered with crisp white butcher paper to protect the dress from dragging across the floor. The pure white paper made it clear that the dress was not actually white when compared to each other. De La Renta explained, “Look at the color of the paper on the floor; that color is true white, so you can see the dress is cream.”
