Scooter crash didn’t stop George taking Amal out on a date

  • The stylish couple, who own a villa nearby, left Gatto Nero in Cernobbio, Italy after dinner on Friday
  • Clooney was recently hit by a car while riding his scooter on location in Sardinia

JEDDAH: Hollywood star George Clooney and his Lebanese-British barrister wife Amal were out and about in Italy enjoying an intimate date night near Lake Como, just weeks after the actor was hurt in a motorcycle accident in Italy. reported the stylish couple, who own a villa nearby, left Gatto Nero in Cernobbio, Italy after dinner on Friday.
Ever the gentleman, George held Amal’s hand while escorting her out of the restaurant as she flashed a big smile.
The stylish duo stepped out in well coordinated ensembles as the 57-year-old actor-director looked suave in a black suit while his wife, 40, wore a black and white asymmetrical striped Michelle Mason dress paired with nude heels, black dangling earrings and a beige leather bag by Gabriela Hearst.
George has been recovering since his scooter accident on July 10. He was hit by a car as he rode to work during the filming of the Hulu Limited series “Catch-22” on the Italian island of Sardinia.
George was briefly hospitalized, but did not sustain any serious injuries. Although he left the hospital shortly after the incident with only bruising, his wife and family were devastated.
“Amal wouldn’t leave his side,” had reported. “It was obvious that she was concerned.”
It was not the first time the “Gravity” actor had been injured in a motorcycle accident.
Back in 2007, George suffered a broken rib when he crashed riding with his then-girlfriend Sarah Larson in New Jersey. Larson suffered a broken foot.
George and Amal tied the knot in 2014, in Venice, Italy. The couple have twins – a daughter named Ella, and son, Alexander.
In June, Amal paid a heartfelt tribute to her husband at the American Film Institute’s 46th Life Achievement Award Gala Tribute, where he received the Life Achievement Award.
“I met George when I was 35 and was starting to become quite resigned to the idea that I was going to be a spinster,” she had said.
“Then we met and started hiding out in my London flat and very soon it felt like no matter what happened I would never want to be with anyone else. Five years later none of that has changed. He is the person who has my complete admiration and also the person whose smile makes me melt every time,” Amal said.
“My love, what I have found with you is love that I’ve always hoped existed, and seeing you with our children, Ella and Alexander, is the greatest joy in my life. I’m proud of you, but I also know that when our children find out not only what you’ve done, but who you are, they will be so proud of you too,” she added.

Imaan Hammam gets colorful in Versace

DUBAI: Italy’s Versace played with bold prints, patchwork and leather in its Spring/Summer 2019 women’s collection in a star-studded show on Friday, the third day of Milan’s fashion week.
Dutch-Moroccan-Egyptian model Imaan Hammam, who has walked for the fashion house before, took to the runway in an elaborated denim pantsuit emblazoned with Versace’s flagship prints in neon colors.

Meanwhile, celebrity model Bella Hadid, who walked the show with sister Gigi, wore a tight one-shouldered mini dress in yellow leather and matching sneakers.
Singers Leona Lewis, Nicki Minaj and Rita Ora, model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, actor Luke Evans and Italian influencer Chiara Ferragni were all in the front row of an enormous industrial space in the modern CityLife neighborhood where the runway show was held, Reuters reported.

Pale yellow walls formed a background to a carpeted floor that echoed some of the prints used in the collection — colored stripes, bright flowers over pinstripes, checks, roses and small flowers mimicking animal prints.
“The style of the Versace woman is so recognizable that it need not be explained. She is not afraid of showing her personality and she is extremely feminine and confident,” read a style note by the fashion house, known for its daring designs.
Close-fitting silhouettes, ruched flared trousers and layered looks, with tulle mini-dresses paired with silk-printed longer ones, designed by Artistic Director and Vice President Donatella Versace, paraded down the catwalk in orange, violet and lime colors.

“The all-over prints of the clothes are overlapped with neat nonchalance,” the note said.
For the evening, Versace flaunted a black satin tuxedo paired with flared trousers, or knee-length leather skirts with golden buttons.
Nineties supermodel Shalom Harlow closed the show, donning a long tulle dress with colorful flower embellishments that flared out in a transparent, sparkly black skirt.
Some of the models carried big boxed bags that echoed old-fashioned travel trunks, or large PVC shopping bags emblazoned with Versace writing. On their feet they wore chunky sneakers, college shoes, or square-heeled sandals, while their ears featured big flower-shaped ear-cuffs matched with hairpins.
The brand with the famed Medusa logo said that her “mystic powers and ever-powerful persona are evident now more than ever,” according to the show notes.
Fake snakeskin, flowers, polished leather and layer upon layer, the Versace collection was eclectic and refined, AFP noted in its review.
