Amal Clooney Has a Stylist After All

We knew it was too good to be true. Though it was widely reported that she doesn't work with a stylist, it appears that Amal Clooney, accomplished human rights lawyer, budding style star and wife of trophy husband George, may have been getting a little help after all.

At Monday evening's Tomorrowland premiere, Mrs. Clooney had the fashion world buzzing about her custom gold gown by John Galliano for Maison Margiela — which many believed the lawyer had chosen herself. However, a few eyebrows were raised given that this is the second time in one month that she's been spotted in Galliano's designs, the first of which was her appearance at the Met Gala in a ruby red tiered Margiela dress. 

Considering Galliano's rather controversial past (remember that whole anti-Semitic, alcohol-fueled rant fiasco?) and Clooney's high-profile political career, some fans have pointed out that the choice to wear the designer twice was a little suspect. 

This is where Alexis Roche — Galliano's longtime partner and stylist to several A-list stars including Uma Thurman and Kendall Jenner — comes into play. The stylist has added both of Clooney's Margiela looks to his online portfolio and posted several photos of the 37-year-old to his social media accounts with the blatant caption, "styled by me."

Though Margiela reps have yet to confirm that Roche is officially behind her Galliano looks, telling Yahoo Style that "the Maison wishes not to speak on this subject just yet," many speculate that outfitting a prestigious client like Clooney in Margiela is part of a carefully calculated comeback strategy being orchestrated by Galliano's team. 

But to be honest, Clooney could probably wear a sack and still look flawless.
