All the Details on Amal Clooney's Vintage Yves Saint Laurent Gown (It's Covered in 10,000 Sequins!)
Amal Clooney should add “Ph.D in vintage shopping” to her style résumé, thanks to the gorgeous gown she wore in Berlin Thursday night — which she happened to pick out herself.

Amal supported husband George Clooney at the Berlin Film Festival premiere of
wearing a shimmery 1981 Yves Saint Laurent gown with a black tulle overskirt. She picked up the piece herself from London’s popular haute couture vintage shop, William Vintage. The design is not only made from the finest black silk, but also covered in over 10,000 black sequins!
The owner of the store, William Banks-Blaney, told PeopleStyle, “Amal has wonderful taste and chose the dress personally. I was delighted to see such a superb William Vintage discovery come alive on the red carpet.”
He added, “The dress is an wonderful example of the great Yves Saint Laurent; one of the many reasons I included it within my book [25 Dresses: Iconic Moments in Twentieth-Century Fashion] — it’s an iconic and timeless piece by one of the greatest designers of all time.”

Amal’s worn pieces from the shop before, like the 1960 Lanvin two-piece crop top and culottes set, which she paired with metallic point-toe pumps and bombshell waves for Charlotte Tilbury’s flagship opening in London last December.
The fashionable 38-year-old barrister has also been spotted shopping in N.Y.C.’s high-end vintage boutique, What Goes Around Comes Around. Last year she purchased a Chanel knit dress, a metallic dress and mink fur baseball cap on a shopping trip with a friend.

Though we have yet to see Amal wearing said ball cap out and about, we’re hoping it will make it’s debut soon. (She recently went pretty edgy these printed trousers, so anything is possible.)
