George and Amal were red carpet winners
Last night's Golden Globes red carpet was littered with loved up couples (Eddie and Hannah, Benedict and Sophie, Keira and James), but none held everyone's attention like newlyweds George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin.
Dusting off his Armani wedding tux for the occasion, George looked his usual handsome self, while Amal impressed the fashion pack in an aysmmetric Haute Couture Dior gown and opera-length white gloves that she allegedly made herself. Sure, they night be Hollywood's golden couple, but that doesn't mean George and Amal don't know how to be thrifty with their wardrobes.
And George's speech was just as great as his suit. Taking to the stage to collect his Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement, the 53-year-old melted our collective heart with his words on his love for wife Amal.
'I’ve had a pretty good year myself. Listen: It’s a humbling thing when you find someone to love—even better when you’ve been waiting your whole life. And when your whole life is 53 years, Amal, whatever alchemy it is that brought us together, I couldn’t be more proud to be your husband.' OK, someone pass us a tissue.
The actor, who accessorised his tux with a Je suis Charlie pin in support of those rallying in Paris after the attacks made on Charlie Hebdo, also used his acceptance speech as a chance to deliver a powerful political message:
'Today was an extraordinary day, there were millions of people who marched not just in Paris but around the world, and they were Christians and Jews and Muslims, they were leaders of countries all over the world and they didn’t march in protest. They marched in support of the idea that we will not walk in fear. So Je suis Charlie.'
But Clooney couldn't help but round off his speech with a classic self-deprecative joke. Acknowledging the recent Sony hacking scandal, George said:
'It’s always fun to come here and catch up with old friends and, now that we’ve seen that everyone’s been hacked, it’s also a good chance for us to meet face-to-face and apologize for all the snarky things we’ve said about each other.'
