George Clooney whispers sweet nothings to Amal Clooney on the Met Gala red carpet

After spending a rather casual weekend with his in-laws in New York City, George Clooney turned up the glamour (and turned on the charm!) to join his beautiful wife, Amal Clooney, on the red carpet at the Met Gala on Monday night (May 4).

Looking more in love than ever, the charismatic actor leaned in to whisper sweet nothings to the Lebanese-British lawyer, who blushed and giggled with glee.

Amal, 37, was stunning in a strapless red John Galliano for Maison Martin Margiela gown, while George, 53, was dapper in a black tuxedo complete with a red pocket square to match his wife’s dress.

It was a sweet moment that beautifully capped off the couple’s busy weekend after they had spent the past few days with Amal’s parents - Ramzi and Baria Alamuddin – as well as her lookalike sister, Tala.

While vacationing in Manhattan, the Alamuddins visited George on the set of his new film, Money Monster, and got to spend some rare and intimate family time together.

The couple looked incredible for their first Met Gala appearance together

This was Amal and George’s very first Met Gala together, but certainly not their last. The beautiful barrister regularly tops best-dressed lists for her elegant outfits on and off the red carpet, but it seems that Amal has been taking major steps in the world of fashion, with rumours swirling that she’s in talks with none other than Met Gala cohost Anna Wintour for a possible Vogue cover.
