Inspired By … Amal Clooney

Amal Clooney, best known as George Clooney’s wife, definitely knows how to put together an envy-inducing outfit!


The 37-year-old lawyer first caught our attention when she was seen arm in arm with Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor, but the world’s fascination with Amal isn’t only due to her fairytale love life. Born in Beirut, Lebanon, Amal went on to graduate from New York University’s School of Law and become an accomplished lawyer for the Doughty Street Chambers firm in London, where she specializes in human rights, criminal law, international law, and extradition. Besides practicing law, Amal’s also taught it, teaching international criminal law to students at the New School in New York, the Hague Academy of International Law, the University of London, and the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. To top it all off, she’s also fluent in French, Arabic, and English, and wrote and co-edited The Law and Practice of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon.

Since stepping into the Hollywood spotlight, Amal has become well-known for her dramatic and sophisticated style. Never afraid to make an entrance, she’s often seen wearing glamorous tailored pieces that are adorned with bold statement accessories. Crisp shift dresses, over-sized sunglasses, and shoulder bags emulate Amal’s casual style while dinner or night wear is captured with wide legged trousers, structured tops, and a pair of fun heels.

The first look has Amal looking casual yet feminine as she walks the springtime streets of London. For your own beautiful day outfit, select a pale pink A-line dress and wear it with black cat eye sunglasses and a neutral satchel.

In this second look, Amal makes a stunning entrance at Venice’s Municipal Building for her civil ceremony with George Clooney. Take some cues from this glamorous but classic outfit, and go with some ivory wide-legged pants, a matching wide-brimmed hat, and strappy black peep-toes for a great dinner look.
