Profile: Amal Clooney

We would like to dedicate this page to a brilliant international human-rights advocate and United Nations barrister, Amal Alamuddin Clooney. Amal has spent the last {almost} two decades working in the international justice system to provide a voice to those who are suppressed by regimes and who are fighting to maintain their freedom of speech.

Considering all the humanitarian work she has engaged in, it seems fitting that her Arabic name "amal" translates to "hope".

Describing her life-long, driving, passion for academia to Vogue's Nathan Heller, she noted that "it was equally important to do things”—she chuckles—“in an effortless manner."

In 2014, Amal married none other than George Clooney. As she was in her early 30’s when she married, she had the opportunity to spend quite some time in the professional world. This time to develop a personal sense of style has surely contributed to her classic and elegant style.

Amal has reportedly lamented the perception that one cannot be both stylish and smart on one's own right. That said, she seems to welcome the opportunity to continue to dress with her own sense of smart sophistication. While being married to an A-list actor inevitably plunges one into the spotlight, Amal has effortlessly adapted her more public view.

Amal and George Clooney have set up a foundation focused on "advancing justice in courtrooms, classrooms, and communities around the world." In essence, the foundation strives to do at a community level what Amal does in the international courts. There are initiatives to combat against hate groups, help resettle refugees, and educate the estimated 250,000 Syrian refugee children in Lebanese schools, among other projects.

More information about the foundation can be found at their website, here

 

Get the Look:

Royal {or any} Wedding Attire. Amal set the stage for the wedding guests in attendance for the royal wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle, (now Duchess of Sussex). Wearing sunshine yellow, she and George led the parade of guests down to St. George's castle at the Windsor Palace.

Neutral Jumpsuit. An all white jumpsuit with hints of navy is the epitome of summer chic. We also love the pleated pant- a quick way to make sure your outfit looks fresh and professional

Summer Casual. A pair of white pants and a black blouse paired with other black and white accessories make for a neutrally chic summer ensemble.

Gingham Style. We are loving the tastefully vintage vibe in this outfit of navy gingham top, navy skirt, and navy pumps, paired with a round red handbag. Amal has quite the handbag collection, as this picture hints. (You can check out more of our favorite Amal looks and handbags here on our Amal pinterest board!)

Oversized sunglasses. When your every move is followed by anxiously awaiting cameras, a little privacy via fabulous Jackie-O-like sunnies helps.

Street style. As a high-profile attorney and wife of an actor, Amal has become quite the street style icon. We sure love her example of dressing all out every time she leaves the house- talk about fashion goals!
