Amal Clooney's Fringe Dress Is Summer Date Night in a Nutshell

Amal and George Clooney joined their friends Stella McCartney and Alasdhair Willis for dinner in Lake Como, and Amal has dressed appropriately in a fringe-trimmed mini from the English designer. Just imagine going out to grab a bite to eat with your gal pal, fielding compliments left and right about your outfit. All you have to do is turn to your BFF, point a finger, and say, "Thanks, she made it!" But of course, the way the human rights activist and lawyer styles her ensembles is the real kicker. Stella might have created her dress, (which, BTW, is a beautiful shade somewhere in between pink and champagne), but Amal selected her beaded drop earrings, her Gabriela Hearst Nina Bag with rose gold hardware, and matching metallic, strappy shoes, which she casually removed to board a boat.
