Unfortunately, the gown was too much for Amal to handle.
The long train presented a challenge to the fashion-conscious human rights lawyer, who fussed with it so much that a film festival official has to carry it for her.
But that was a minor snafu compared to the gown's daring thigh-high slit!
Poor George maintained a frozen grin as his wife came perilously close to revealing all to the assembled throng of fans, film-stars and photographers.
Julie Roberts seemed amused as Amal struggled with the dress, throwing a look of 'Serves you right, you idiot" over George's head.
Why didn't someone at Atelier Versace instruct Amal on how to wear the dress? Were they punking the glamorous Mrs. Clooney or did they assume her legal training would prepare her for the ordeal of walking the red carpet?
Where was Donatella? Is she just jealous that Amal is moving in on her territory of malnourished toothpick-like thinness?
You know what, who cares.
The important thing is that Amal helped George to stop worrying about the audience response to Money Monster, by distracting him with her wardrobe malfunction.
Those who have cruelly speculated about Mrs.Clooney's gender were so close to solving the mystery that you can almost hear the collective groan of disappointment.
So close and yet...
It was a wonderful event for Amal-watchers, who will be interested to know that Charlotte Tilbury was responsible for Mrs. Clooney's heavy make up, and Rod Ortega styled her ravishing hair (i.e., extensions.)
Bravissimo, Amal! You have outdone yourself and we thank you.
Breaking down the bias of comfort films.
With the constant onslaught of complicated news that 2020 has brought, sometimes you just want to be able to shut off your brain, relax, and feel happy.
Enter comfort films. These are the feel-good movies that feel like a warm hug when you finish them, the ones that allow you to escape for a short while. We often turn to these types of films in times of trouble or extreme stress, and when we're not sure what films of this nature we should watch, we turn to the Internet for options.
The underground singer is set to release his new album Night Vision by the end of this month
Obai Ismail often finds himself unable to describe what his music sounds like.
The young crooner, who goes by the moniker 451, crafts rich atmospheric pop songs that teeter on the line between rap and R&B. He is clearly inspired by the hazy atmospherics of Trilogy-era Abel Tesfaye–but without Tesfaye's lumbering execution; instead, Ismail snaps with urgency and hits each note with buoyancy.
