George Clooney is going to be one dapper groom on his wedding day. As rumors continue to swirl about his fiancée Amal Alamuddin's wedding dress, the designer of Clooney's wedding suit confirmed his involvement in the highly-anticipated nuptials, which are slated to happen this month.
Famed Italian designer Giorgio Armani revealed yesterday that he's dressing the A-list actor for his upcoming nuptials in Venice, Italy. "George has chosen and been fitted for an Armani suit for his wedding," local TV reports quoted him as saying after his Emporio Armani show at Milan Fashion Week on Thursday.
Armani is a comfortable and unsurprising choice for Clooney. The actor is a longtime fan of the Italian design house and has worn the label's tuxes for many awards shows and red carpets. Earlier this summer, a design team from Armani was even seen at Clooney's Lake Como villa!
He's even been characteristically outspoken about his preference for the fashion house. "I have one tux. Just one," he told People when he was chosen as the magazine's Sexiest Man Alive in 2006. "It's a single-button [Armani]. There's only one mistake guys can make, and that is to try to do anything fancy. Just put on a tux. Just put a tie on, put a plain shirt on, don't wear a bolo tie, and don't wear a cummerbund that's crazy."
Looks like he'll add one more to his collection for his wedding! If the tux is a gift from his designer friend, it'll be a relief to Alamuddin's parents — the bride's traditional mom and dad are reportedly footing most of the wedding bill!
