Even if you spent it under a rock, you are probably aware that there was a royal wedding this weekend. The bride wore two excellent dresses, and best dressed guest *probably* fell to Amal Clooney, in a canary-meets-mustard yellow Stella McCartney ensemble which was altogether fabulous.Brief digression: thoughts on the wedding? I am still feeling jaunty – and when I think about the blazing love between them, I get something in my eye. (Don’t get me started on how proud Diana would have been…) And the dresses? I loved that Meghan chose a female designer (Claire Waight Keller, currently incumbent at Givenchy) – it seems a carefully-considered choice, as was the dress. Breathtakingly simple, sleek and classic. Possibly a little bit safe, but then perhaps MM figured she’s rocked the royal boat enough for now? And that veil elevated it into something altogether dreamlike. That Stella McCartney halterneck dress, though… Oh my. Dress perfection.
ANYWAY. Back to Amal. Granted, the woman has the best accessory ever in the form of one George, but she really hit it out of the sartorial ballpark in mustard Stella McCartney (again. Stella is one busy woman). She looked fabulous. Not just the cut on her whip-slim figure, but also the vivid pop of colour
Yellow is a divisive colour: you hear a lot of “Oo, I can’t wear it”. To which I say: of course you can, just keep it on your bottom half: personally, I find these shoes hard to resist. If, like us, you’re willing to go head-to-toe, I offer you plenty of options. (We loved wearing yellow for our dress up day with Feather & Stitch – I’m wearing this Munthe blouse and I also loved this; Alex’s dress is sold out there, so get it here or here.)
