Date Night in Venice? Amal Clooney Has THE Dress For That

Amal and George Clooney are doing date night the right way. The couple dined with friends at a waterfront restaurant in Venice, Italy, on June 26, and of course, Amal chose the ideal outfit for the evening. Her little black dress was equal parts glam and sexy, a balance she’s used to striking with her flawless fashion picks.

For the couples’ night out, Amal opted for a dress with a dramatic skirt. No, it’s not a minidress, it just looked that way from the front. From the back, Amal’s LBD quickly became a full-length gown, complete with platform peep-toe wedges. Keep reading to see more looks at Amal’s full outfit below.

12 Stylish Things I Saved on My Instagram This Month

IDK about you, but when I’m scrolling through Instagram, I end up saving a ton of photos of items that I want to get. Whether I actually take the plunge and end up buying all of them is another story (sadly, my bank account won’t allow it), but that doesn’t stop me from saving these photos, because they’re just so nice to look at. It’s basically the digital version of window shopping, and it soothes my soul. I have a whole folder called “Things I Heart” that gets added to as the months go by, and it helps when I need a little outfit inspo.

Want an inside peek? This past week, I couldn’t get enough of Amina Muaddi’s Cinderella heels, which are sold out, much to my dismay. It probably has to do with the fact that Rihanna wore them with a sheer dress over jeans. I also couldn’t help but slam that save button when I saw By Far’s adorable mini croc bags. They’re a bit bigger than Jacquemus’s mini bags, so I don’t have to worry about losing my phone when I carry it (something that actually happened to me once, but don’t worry, I found it). Read on to see seven things I added to my Instagram saved folder this past week and shop some of the pieces, too.

Meghan Markle’s Engagement Ring No Longer Looks Like It Did When She Got Engaged

The Duchess of Sussex can’t step out the door without eagle-eyed fans spotting even the tiniest of details when it comes to her appearance. Their latest discovery? It looks like Meghan may have given her engagement ring a little makeover, swapping the original band for a slimmer, diamond-set design. It seems Meghan first debuted this new ring when she and Harry introduced their son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor to the world, and we got another look during the Trooping the Colour ceremony, as she also showed off a new eternity ring, said to be an anniversary gift from Harry.

Meghan’s engagement ring was designed by Prince Harry and the jeweler Cleave and Company. Harry added diamonds from his mother Princess Diana’s collection to a large central stone sourced in Botswana, where he and Meghan spent time when they were dating. The ring was originally set on a solid yellow gold band, but now it seems to be set on a much more delicate, sparkling band. There are a number of reasons why Meghan may have decided to make the change to the ring: perhaps to better match her new eternity ring (which is also set with tiny diamonds) or because of wear to the gold of the original ring.

It’s also possible that Meghan needed to resize or adjust the ring during her pregnancy: swelling (edema) is a side effect many moms-to-be suffer from, and perhaps she used this as an excuse to also change the design a little? Whatever the reason, we’re sure you’ll agree that Meghan’s ring looks just as beautiful now as it ever has.
