Oxford grad, human rights attorney, wife, mother, and style icon. Prior to becoming known as George Clooney’s better half, Amal Alamuddin had interned with a Supreme Court Justice and represented WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange during extradition. Not to mention, she survived her own birth during a Lebanese civil war.
Still, we can’t help but be wowed by the multilingual humanitarian’s stunning sense of style. Here are ten looks that further prove Amal’s a force to be reckoned with.
1. Venice Film festival, 2017
As you’ll find, one of Amal’s go-to’s is Atelier Versace, and for good reason. This lavender confection stunned on the red carpet last year, merely three months after giving birth to twins. Husband George joked that he had to clean baby vomit off of his tux, but he needn’t have worried – no one was looking at him.
2. UN General Assembly, 2016
Yes, pink is the perfect power color for the modern woman’s power suit. This Max Mara suit complements dark, glossy hair and contrasting accessories. In this case, black studded heels with the unexpected addition of an ivory bag play well together.
3. 2016 Cannes Film Festival
This is THE perfect shade of buttercup yellow. The flowy Atelier Versace gown provided the opportunity to flash plenty of leg, even if it does make it hard to avoid stepping on your own train. A jewel-toned lip and Cartier statement earrings keep it from being pastel-precious.
4. Running Errands in London, 2014
Even fashion plates buy off-the-rack; Amal stepped out in a lacy Zara top on a balmy day in London. Instead of tempering the femininity of her top with something more staid, she paired it with some floral-print denim from Stella McCartney.
5. More UN Meetings, 2016
It was a very fashionable work week for Amal, but this look made the most headlines. A crepe Gucci pussy bow dress gave us ‘70s throwback vibes with pleating and bell sleeves. It’s brought into this century with black wedge heels and oversized sunglasses.
6. 2015 Golden Globes
There aren’t many women who can pull off opera gloves today, but to no one’s surprise, Amal makes it work. A fan of Grecian, one-shoulder gowns, Clooney also accessorized her Dior evening wear with approximately 30 carats of Harry Winston diamonds.
7. Press Conference with the President of the Maldives, 2016
What would you wear to a press conference concerning a deposed leader? Amal chose this crimson double-breasted suit with rich red velvet trim. She added a black leather tote and stilettos to the bespoke look.
8. Working in Athens, 2014
For this visit, Amal selected a classic, structured look from Oscar de la Renta, the very fashion house that designed her wedding gown. With a hounds tooth top and slim belt, it’s incredibly figure-flattering, but can we talk about that bag? The red hat-box-inspired satchel with scarf is more proof that her aptitude for accessorizing is unparalleled.
9. On a Film Set, 2015
If you thought that Amal wasn’t the holey-jeans type, guess again. She styles hers with – what else – a Balenciaga moto jacket and wedge sneakers with plenty of buckles. To keep the look from being too edgy, she includes a white blouse with cutouts, as well as a really cute cocker spaniel.
10. Meeting the Pope, 2016
Is the hat a pillbox, a turban, or an alluring hybrid of both? Doesn’t matter; it looks incredible with the fitted black lace frock by Atelier Versace. Mindful of being too matchy-matchy, Amal carries an ivory clutch and wears nude heels on her way to the Vatican.
