George Clooney Celebrates Birthday With Wife Amal In Matching Outfits
George and Amal Clooney stepped out in style to celebrate the actor's 57th birthday. The happy couple chose matching outfits for their night out.
Coordinating In Style
Amal, 40, and her hunky hubby stepped out in New York City for a romantic dinner, just a month ahead of the first birthday of their twins Ella and Alexander.
The Clooneys were spotted smiling and holding hands as they left Laconda Verde restaurant, clad in matching navy blue outfits. Amal was in a comfy, yet stylish romper with a gold belt and Jimmy Choo heels, while George played it safe in a classic blue suit, the top buttons of his shirt left casually undone.
The happy couple were out in the city ahead of Monday night's Met Gala, where Amal served as co-host alongside Vogue's Anna Wintour and Rihanna. She was also in town recently for a lecture at Colombia University.
George, meanwhile, just returned from Italy, where he's been in pre-production on his Catch-22 series for Hulu. The project will begin filming on the island of Sardinia later this month.
Amal's father, Ramzi Alamuddin, was celebrating his 80th birthday at the Clooneys' spectacular Lake Como residence.
As the first birthday of the twins draws nearer, it's worth looking back on this time last year, when the couple were excitedly anticipating their arrival. On becoming a father, the actor was shocked by how much his life changed.
"[I was surprised] how much I thought I had in control and how little control I actually have. I have none! I think everybody quickly realizes that," admitted George towards the end of last year.
Lighting Up The Red Carpet
The stylish couple stepped onto the 2018 Met Gala red carpet looking just as chic. The two perfectly embodied the theme, "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination," with Amal in a stunning, strapless top from Richard Quinn.
The designer was recently awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design for her look, a silver foil bustier with a dramatic train that embodied both a dress and the pants revealed when she turned around.
The human rights attorney is a fan of the strapless look, having donned a custom crimson Maison Margiela Artisanal dress by John Galliano at last year's event.
Her 2018 look was significantly more daring, however, particularly the floral-printed train that skimmed the floor as she glided along. Her navy cigarette pants kept the look from going overboard, with her accessories kept to a minimum -- just a floral statement earring completed the ensemble. George, of course, was already the perfect accessory in a classic tuxedo.
