Amal Clooney style gallery

 

A NEW STYLE ICON HAD EMERGED: I was hesitant to give Amal Alamuddin Clooney a “style icon” title when I honestly hadn’t heard of her until recently when she represented Julian Assange from Wikileaks, and then became George Clooney’s fiancée (now wife – see photos from the wedding).

And I was worried that the label might be somehow demeaning considering her incredible credentials as a human rights barrister.

But who says that you can’t be clever and fashionable? She’s clearly embracing the ladylike styles I love, which means more to me than any Kardashian, and ought to be celebrated.

MUSIC TO SCROLL BY: Music from “The Notebook” soundtrack by Aaron Zigman

 

 

How beautiful is this music from the 2004 film, The Notebook starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams, James Garner and Gena Rowlands? The score is by American composer Aaron Sigman.

Mr Luscious has added it to our music collection, and we’re playing it as he puts the Sunday night roast on. I hope you can enjoy it too.

Buy the DVD and soundtrack CD for more.

ETIQUETTE How to be a perfect house guest

 

HOW TO BE THE PERFECT HOUSE GUEST: I’ve made a lot of mistakes as a house guest, especially in my younger days and the times when I was “between homes”, and I’m sure I still do make an idiot of myself from time to time, for which I would like to officially apologise.
