Amal Clooney's Oscar de la Renta Wedding Dress Is for Sale.

Now you too can become Mrs. Clooney. OK, not at all. But you can look exactly like Amal Clooney did on her wedding day.

Today, Oscar de la Renta revealed an Amal-inspired wedding gown as part of its bridal fall 2015 collection. It's not the exact dress (Amal's gown was custom-made, after all!), but the copycat design embodies all the elegance and grace of Amal's wedding gown. The same lacy overlay, off-the-shoulder style and romantic silhouette characterize the replica design. In fact, the only noticeably missing details are the lengthy train and cathedral veil.

"It's the most important dress in the life of a woman," Oscar de la Renta told Vogue after working with Amal. "Any girl from any walk of life dreams of that special dress, and I try to make that dream a reality for her."

Mrs. Clooney and de la Renta collaborated on the dress design together, ultimately deciding on an effortless dress with Chantilly lace and hand-embroidered embellishments. The end result? A truly regal gown, fit for a Hollywood royalty wedding.

The 36-year-old's human rights lawyer has evolved into quite the fashion icon since announcing her engagement to George Clooney back in April. She regularly sports designer confections, with Dolce & Gabbana, Giambattista Valli Couture and Alexander McQueen all being familiar labels in her enviable wardrobe. And that crisp Stella McCartney two-piece suit and hat ensemble Amal wore to her official civil ceremony? That, people, was pure sartorial perfection.

But back to Amal's designer du choix, Oscar de la Renta. Mrs. Clooney's worn several eye-catching designs by 82-year-old de la Renta (especially this fierce little frock). And the world -enowned designer is no stranger to dressing fashion icons, even dressing Jackie Kennedy, who many claim is Amal's style doppelgänger. Two bold, beautiful, intelligent women--we see the resemblance too!

As for the designer's Amal-inspired wedding gown? We're not sure if it will spurn a full-on Kate effect, but we're guessing the luxe wedding gown won't stay on racks for long.

Price and release date are yet to be announced.
