The estimated total also includes the cost Mrs Clooney’s wedding dress. A glimpse of it can now also be seen on the covers of Hello and People magazines. It was a white lace gown, hand-stitched. It was equipped with hundreds of crystals and pears, and designed by Oscar de la Renta. It featured a floor-length veil and was in ivory color.
