The Hollywood power couple, pictured here in 2016, were all smiles in Venice.

Amal and George Clooney have been keeping a low profile since welcoming their twins into the world in June, but the couple made a triumphant return to the spotlight at the Venice Film Festival on Saturday.

While they were walking the red carpet to promote George’s new film Suburbicon, it was Amal who stole the show in a stunning lilac gown.

The 39-year-old kept her accessories simple with pendant earrings and gold strappy heels. She added a splash of red lipstick to complete the look.

“[Alexander] is a thug already. You saw him,” he joked with Matt Damon. “He’s a moose! Literally, he just sits and he eats.”

Matt chimed in: “He looks like he could bounce right now, some place in Hollywood. Like, checking IDs on the way into the nursery.”

As for daughter Ella, Geroge explained: “She’s very elegant, and all eyes. She looks like Amal, thank god.”

George and Amal bucked the celebrity trend for creative and often odd baby names, with George explaining they “just didn’t want to have really dumb names.”

“We figured these kids are going to be looked at a lot and watched and [have their] every move sort of judged, and we wanted them to at least have a break with the names,” he shared.

“So we looked for some sort of normal names. We didn’t have any great inspiration. It wasn’t Alexander the Great and Ella Fitzgerald.”
