Amal Alamuddin’s wedding to George Clooney 2014. When human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin married actor George Clooney, there was one thing everyone was waiting for: to see her dress.

Jackie Kennedy was a first lady whom may still look at for her trademark, chic style often accompanied by her famous three-strand pearl necklace. It’s hard to go past this Oscar de la Renta creations as one of her best choices.
