Amal Clooney Is the New Princess Kate of Retail: All About Her Stylish Reach
All about the star's fashionable reach
You’ve all heard of the “Kate Effect.” (Refresher: Princess Kate wears something fabulous, it sells out within minutes.) It looks like Amal Clooney is following a similar stylish path. The 36-year-old lawyer’s eclectic wardrobe is inspiring her fans to take out their credit cards and shop.
Remember that time she purchased a mink baseball hat at N.Y.C. luxury vintage boutique What Comes Around Goes Around? PEOPLE broke the news of her vintage shopping trip, and Amal style fans wasted no time stopping by the store to pick up a fur cap of their own.
“The next day the other two we had in the store were quickly snatched up,” Gerard Maione, co-owner of What Goes Around Comes Around tells PEOPLE. “We got half a dozen calls after that, asking if we had any more mink baseball hats or if could locate some. It proves what a style trendsetter she is.”
Maione explains because of the demand and buzz Amal created, he had to hunt for more pieces. “These hats were one of a kind and are hard to find. For me to find three vintage mink baseball caps was enough in itself.”
He adds: “She is such a sweetheart. She is totally down to earth. She had been in the store prior to being Mrs. Clooney, but back then, she was a lot more under the radar.”
Popular denim brand Citizens of Humanity has also seen a spike in jean sales thanks to Amal, including one of her favorite styles the “Corey” slouchy fit boyfriend jeans, which she wore Sunday while visiting George on set in N.Y.C.
“Amal Clooney is a style icon as well as being fiercely intelligent and a great role model,” a rep for the brand tells PEOPLE in a statement. “She has a unique influence in the fashion world and consumers love to see what she is wearing. It’s always a thrill to see her in Citizens of Humanity.”
