Amal Clooney Nominated for British Style Award: What Her Hairstylist Has to Say

10/31/2014 at 06:00 PM ET

When Amal Alamuddin started dating George Clooney we noticed immediately she had an eye for fashion and of course, that perfect hair. But it wasn’t until her three-day Italian wedding extravaganza that she really showed off her full style credentials. And it looks like the British Fashion Council couldn’t agree more.

Mrs. Clooney has been nominated (along with Kate Moss, David Beckham and many other stylish veterans) for the British Style Awards, to be handed out at the prestigious British Fashion Awards on Dec. 1.

Max Coles, Amal’s longtime hairstylist at London’s Michaeljohn salon in Mayfair, says that the barrister’s style has always been consistent, since she first became his client several years ago.

In a recent interview, Coles described her style as “very glamorous, in a kind of bohemian, casual, chic way.”

The award which “recognizes an individual who most embodies the spirit of British fashion and is an international ambassador for London as a leading creative fashion capital,” has been previously awarded to Alexa Chung and Harry Styles.

Having recently styled Amal’s hair for their ‘second wedding party’ in England last weekend (prior to that he traveled with her to Greece on a work trip), Coles tells PEOPLE that her everyday hairstyle is a little different to what he created for the wedding weekend.

“It is very relaxed, down but more casual and less bouncy yet still high profile,” he shares.

And we have to say — Amal’s bouncy blowout definitely rivals Princess Kate’s. Now will just have to wait for the inevitable Amal vs. Kate red carpet faceoff!

What do you think of Amal’s style? How about her hair? Share your thoughts below!

Make the Halloween Cookies the Obamas Gave to Trick-or-Treaters

They might be known for projects like the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge but on Halloween, First Lady Michelle and President Barack Obama handed out a deliciously decadent gift to trick-or-treaters: a homemade butter cookie.

As acrobats dressed like spiders and cats performed on aerial trusses, the First couple — who opted not to don costumes — welcomed about 4,500 people to the lawn of the White House’s South Portico. Local students and children of military families were among their guests, and decorations included 200 carved pumpkins as well as topiaries of Bo and Sunny, the First Dogs, that were outfitted to look like circus clowns.

Along with the cookie, visitors received classic candies such as licorice and Hershey’s Kisses, kettle corn, Bo and Sunny baseball cards, and a snack likely close to the FLOTUS’s heart: a Gala apple.

PEOPLE got the stunningly simple make-ahead dough recipe, below. These cookies, which bake quickly and require just a few pantry staples, can be easily customized with your favorite frosting or glaze for any holiday.

Noureen DeWulf: My Son’s ‘Telling Me from My Belly’ He’ll Play Hockey

10/30/2014 at 07:00 AM ET

Anger Management actress and mom-to-be Noureen DeWulf wants to keep the puck sliding from daddy to baby.

“It is a boy and I think he will play hockey,” DeWulf told PEOPLE at the ASPCA Compassion Awards honoring Nikki Reed and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting. “That’s what he’s telling me from in my belly.”

Like any expectant mom, DeWulf, 30 — who is five months along with her first child — could not be more excited to meet her bundle of joy.

“It’s so special … when you are in love with somebody and you want to procreate with them,” DeWulf says of her hockey player husband, Olympian Ryan Miller, 34. “I want to see what my baby looks like.”

The expectant star has had a “beautiful” pregnancy so far, despite her insatiable craving for vegetable juice.

“It used to be a lot of French fries. Now, it’s tomato juice,” she shares. “I literally drank an entire gallon of Whole Foods tomato juice in a glass bottle. I also drank a whole gallon of V-8 on set. They keep restocking it for me.”

The actress isn’t letting her cravings slow her down: She’s still working out, but switching up her routines to accommodate her growing belly.

“I do spinning, I do weight training, I work out with a trainer, I work out just by myself, I do the elliptical,” she explains. “I’m still trying to do stuff like that while I’m pregnant, but it’s hard.”
