    "The two kept a low profile until after Valentine's Day, when Alamuddin joined Clooney for a special White House screening on Feb. 18 of his film The Monuments Men. The couple held hands at the event with President Barack Obama. After, the duo joined Clooney's costars Matt Damon and Bill Murray at Willard Hotel's Round Robin & Scotch Bar, where, an onlooker told PEOPLE, they were stuck like glue.

    Then it was vacation time again: In March, they first spent some beach time in the Seychelles, then jetted to Tanzania for a short but sweet four-day safari. Clooney was photographed with his arm around Alamuddin – finally confirming the two were a romantic item.

    Days later, the couple landed in N.Y.C., where they stayed at Manhattan's Carlyle Hotel and dined at French restaurant Rotisserie Georgette with Gerber and another of Clooney's Casamigos business partners, real estate developer Mike Meldman.

    On March 27 they turned up on the West Coast at another dinner table with friends. This time, they feasted on Japanese with Clooney's friends John Krasinski and wife Emily Blunt at Kazu Sushi in Studio City, Calif.

    Almost a month later, they were ready to show off their big news. On Wednesday they were spotted at L.A. restaurant Craig's with friends, with Alamuddin wearing a huge ring, and the following night they met up with Gerber and Crawford at Nobu in Malibu."

    Do all attorneys get this kind of time off? Sounds like she's now spending all her time following him around and hanging out with his friends.

    Angelina is only 38, right? This woman is 36. I don't think GK's choice has anything to do with one-upping anyone.

    Kinda annoyed how everyone's like, "ooooh, she's sooo smart!" Like it's rare for a woman to have brains. Meh.
    It's rare for one of George's women to have anything other than a bikini.

    She's a self employed barrister so can work when she wants.

    She works in a barristers' chambers where they are all self employed. It's like a collective with admin staff as well.

    If you've got it, flaunt it.


    At a private dinner on April 27, George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin showed off their newly engaged bliss – along with the bride-to-be's new ring.

    In an exclusive photo in this week's PEOPLE, the couple joined close friends Cindy Crawford and her husband, Rande Gerber, in Santa Barbara, Calif., just five days after Clooney proposed to the stunning London lawyer, to celebrate Gerber's 52nd birthday as well as their own happy news.



    In another exclusive photo, Alamuddin has her hand resting lovingly on the back of her fiancé's neck – providing a close-up look at her ring, which Clooney helped design. It features an ethically mined emerald-cut diamond estimated at 7-plus carats and two tapered baguettes set in platinum.

    In PEOPLE's cover story, sources reveal more details of the surprise engagement. On April 22, Clooney proposed the traditional way – on bended knee.

    The actor had visited Dubai in March to meet his Lebanese-born, Oxford-educated leading lady's family, spending time on a yacht excursion with her siblings, says a relative of Alamuddin's.

    "They found George very easy to get along with, cool," the family member tells PEOPLE. "They felt at ease with him immediately."

    she looks like the love child of maria callas and anne hathaway.

    Opals and yellow diamonds aren't something I'll ever have to worry about owning so I'm not fussed about them one way or another. Pearls however... I'll never wear pearls, real or fake. It's something I picked up from Ma Kitty who always refused to even have them in the house. She calls them 'tears of the sea'.
