New Bride Amal Looks Like Modern Day Version Of Bianca Jagger Wedding Style

Gotta LOVE the big, white, wide-brimmed hat.

Classic, feminine + elegant.

We think new bride Amal has nailed each fashion change during her whirlwind 4-day Italian wedding weekend.

Today, we are adoring the gorgeous ensemble the new wife of George Clooney has emerged wearing following the couple's 10 minute civil ceremony today at the historic Ca' Loredan building which houses Venice's city hall.

We call this the modern day Bianca Jagger look. Remember her cool, white, big hat and the blazer/skirt combo she wore during her St. Tropez marriage to Mick Jagger?

Bianca was a trailblazer back in 1971. She wore her YSL Le Smoking jacket with a large, wide brim hat complete with a veil. And she was bra-less under the blazer.

Amal chose a chic, cream-colored, wide-legged Stella McCartney pantsuit with navy banding + clutch.

Wow! What a fab-looking couple!

Thinking about walking down the aisle in a civil ceremony a la Amal with a big, white hat and all?

We think it's a glamorous style and one you CAN copy.

On Etsy, we found lots of big, wide-brimmed white hats that are nice for the Kentucky Derby and/or a beautiful wedding.

Would you wear a big hat to make it official?

Beyonce Beautiful In White Lace Top Closes Out Central Park Concert

We don't claim to know anything about the state of Beyonce + Jay Z's marriage.

There have been tons of rumors floating around, and even recent gossip that the stunning pop star might be expecting her 2nd child.

But what we do know is true, is that Beyonce has NEVER looked better!

Jay Z's baby mama wowed the huge crowd at Central Park's outdoor Global Citizen Festival in New York City on Saturday evening. The pop power couple closed out the concert in high style with Jay Z's Holy Grail + Forever Young.

We couldn't stop staring at the Queen, herself.

Beyonce looked gorgeous in a white lace top + high-waisted black pants and intricate, statement necklace.

LOVE white lace. So-oooo lovely + girlie.

So Dolce + Gabbana. They do lace RIGHT!

We don't know Beyonce's label, but you CAN copy her white lace top look.

We found a super sale at Venus. $14 for this white lace, Beyonce-like top!

Stunning Bride-To-Be Amal Graces Venice Backdrop In Dolce + Gabbana

For all the haters out there because George Clooney's fiance didn't quite measure up to YOUR standards of beauty.....Look at Amal now!

This is how you do a glamorous Dolce & Gabbana dress, expensive sunglasses and er....bosom tucked in neatly.

In other words....Boobs don't have to be on display 24/7.

By the way, the dress--has already SOLD OUT.

We think Amal + George look chic + sophisticated BEFORE Saturday's nuptials. Isn't the city of Venice so romantic + unique?

And yeah....Amal Alamuddin happens to have long, perfect, healthy hair. NO extensions that we can find.

Amal's taste in sunglasses.....This movie star style by Prada, of course.

We think Amal has stepped up her beauty + fashion game. Yesterday, we posted about the exotic beauty plucking her brows a bit for a cleaner line that opens up her dark eyes beautifully.

Look at the water taxis speeding along the Venice body of water. Quite enchanting!

Congratulations, Amal + George!
Italy is THE place for big time weddings.

Has Amal Plucked Brows Before Big Day With Clooney? Tips On Brow Grooming

It's LOVE Italian style, as bride-to-be Amal Alamuddin touches down in Milan to prep for her BIG day marrying the ever-dashing George Clooney.

Amal + George are said to be joining hands for this momentous occasion in a lavish ceremony on Saturday, which is alleged to be at the Aman Canal Grande Venice hotel.

That means LOTS of beauty + fashion stuff BEFORE the impending nuptials.

The 36-year-old  Lebanese-British human rights lawyer is glamorous + striking to begin with, but it appears to us that Amal has plucked or groomed her naturally full, dark brows a bit. And we LOVE the change.

Take a look. Here is Amal as she was dating the handsome actor last spring

Now, check out Amal's more groomed, lighter brows today:

Wow....Looks cleaner with a higher arch. Well done, Amal.

Thinner brows + HUGE engagement ring. Perfect.

So, for all you brides-to-be, HOLD the tweezers + wax + scissors for just a moment.

Here are some smart tips we found at about getting pretty BEFORE your walk down the aisle

With DIY plucking, it's all too easy to get tweeze happy, says Christine Chin, celebrity eyebrow expert.
But if you insist at-home grooming, her advice is to keep it quick + simple.

"Remove unwanted hairs between brows, then clean up strays just below them. (Tweezing on top will mess with the natural shape.) No single shape works on everybody, Chin says, but in general, your brow should follow the line of the bone just above your eye.".

For Perfect Autumn Pout: Try L'Oreal Crayon Gloss In Vintage Rose

Autumn 2014 is looking over our shoulders. Tuesday will be the first, full day of Fall.

Soon, we will be easing into our blazers, cardis, leather jackets and more.....

Still, there are some warm days ahead for many of us.

And now we've found the perfect autumn pout! It's NOT a heavy, matte lipstick.

We're talking about L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Glossy Balm Crayon in Vintage Rose ($7.99, at Walgreens).

This sheer shade is so-oooo pretty in pink!

It's lovely for an everyday, little pop of color. Plus, the twistable crayon point tip makes it super easy to apply.

And while you're workin' your lips + smile, why not take your favorite floral frock and continue the feminine, flirty trend right into autumn.

Put on a little cardi or leather jacket over your floral dress and stride into style.

Short hair/long hair.....Taylor Swift has been in LOVE with floral dresses  for-like-ever! Gotta love the cardi + dress look for Fall.

We adore this floral body-con dress from ($43.99).
