Amal Alamuddin Wears Gorgeous Purple Gown to Officiate Cousin's Wedding

07/17/2014 at 01:52 PM ET

Amal Alamuddin isn’t afraid to mix up her style. And while we wait patiently to see what kind of wedding gown the London-based attorney chooses for her nuptials to George Clooney, we got a clue as to her taste when we spotted her at another black tie affair — her cousin’s wedding in Italy, which she officiated!

For her duties, Alamuddin selected a rich purple chiffon gown with floral appliqués on the bodice (as readers pointed out in the comments, it’s a J. Mendel design from 2013). She finished her look with soft side-swept curls and a plum lip for the outdoor ceremony held at the 15th-century Villa Mangiacan near Florence. Her fiancé also attended the private affair in a classic tux, but made sure to not take away any attention from the bride and groom, according to a source.

We keep a close eye on her adventurous, well-accessorized street style, but we usually don’t see the 36-year-old lawyer in formalwear. And after this elegant gown, we can’t wait for her to hit the awards season red carpet circuit with George.

What do you think of her gown? What style wedding dress would you like to see on Alamuddin? Share your thoughts below.

I hope her posture is better, maybe it’s just the picture angle.
Absolutely gorgeous!

She’s the real deal. Hope this one lasts. She’s intelligent and classy. A gem.

She really isn’t anything special (and no, I’m not jealous!).

Anne on

Not a fan of the dress….too busy, not elegant.

I give the marriage two years since that seems to be the time limit with George’s relationships. He has never once dated anyone like Amal so how is she ‘his type’…..

Dress makes the girl in this case. I know she’s smart and successful and has tamed the bachelor, but I just don’t think she’s as gorgeous and beautiful as people rave about her. Attractive, sure. Grace Kelly knockout? Not even close.

Sentoria on

She’s really very plain. And that posture…..oh well, wish them much happiness :)

Tracy on

She looks beautiful in that dress, great color for her.

Jazzicat on

Stunning, simply stunning! Oh my gosh, this girl has unbelievable style!

Areanna on

Leave her alone. She doesn’t need your dumb criticism of her appearance. Why do you feel you should comment on another person just trying to live her life?
