Though the Met Gala maybe over, Amal Clooney's dress is yet causing a lot of stir. Amal pissed of powerful fashion forces at Vogue and designer Tom Ford's team after they worked hard to make a custom gown for her and just hours before walking the red carpet at the Met Gala 2018 she decided not to wear it.

At the very last minute, she decided to wear the dramatic backup gown by hot British designer Richard Quinn, that had a bustier and pants with a billowing floral train.


When Amal told the Tom Ford team about her last-minute change, a source revealed, "they were annoyed, obviously, but they were gracious and said it was fine to go with [another designer], but they would prefer that Amal not wear the dress at all if she wasn't going to wear it on the Met Ball red carpet." Even Vogue wanted Amal to stick to the original script.

Ford Fashion House had hoped that if Amal didn't debut in the gorgeous gown - a crimson number designed to look like a stained-glass window, in keeping with the Met Gala's theme, "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination" -they would show it off at a different occasion on another star perhaps.

But they were shocked and beyond furious when Amal ignored their request and after the blitz of the Met Gala, she changed into the Tom Ford for the private affair.


Vogue editor Anna Wintour on the Late Night Show said that Amal insisted on changing her gowns in one of the museum's gifts shop. Vogue staffers were mortified by the scene caused by Amal, especially since Amal is Vogue's May cover star.
