It may be that there are some unhappy designers after putting many hours of work into this special dress. 


Amal Clooney had Vogue designer Tom Ford working to create a beautiful piece in keeping with the Met Gala theme of Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, but decided at the last minute not to wear it. 

PageSix has alleged that her decision disappointed Ford and his constituents, but that they accepted it and request that she not wear it to another event, stating that they would give it to something else to debut. 

Instead, according to the publication, she snubbed them completely by choosing to change into the design in the museum's gift shop, after walking the red carpet in another number. 


Vogue had also requested that she refrain from using the dress at a later stage. PageSix believes that Clooney gave them no warning about what she had planned to do. 

The dress designed by Ford and his team was a floor-length crimson number, and made to look like a stained-glass window. 

The stunning dress' creators were supposedly quite put out that Clooney chose not to wear it on the red carpet, but to still change into it once inside the much more private event. 

Clooney instead opted to wear a dramatic outfit by British designer Richard Quinn. The number consisted of a strapless silver bustier and a pair of blue satin pants with a long train attached to it featuring a rose pattern. 


She completed the outfit with a pair of matching blue pointed heels, and wore her hair up in an elegant chignon. She accessorized with a pair of feathery silver earrings. 

After changing into the Ford number, she loosened her hair and let her thick brunette waves hang loosely about her shoulders. She pulled on a pair of red satin pointed heels, a pair of red drop-earrings, and grabbed a red clutch. 

Both Vogue and Ford have declined to comment on the alleged unhappiness with Clooney's outfit change.
