Amal Clooney's Style Is a Lesson in Looking Polished 24/7

Amal Clooney’s style is something we could all learn a few lessons from. Whether the human rights barrister is power-dressing at work or walking the red carpet with husband George Clooney, her wardrobe always hits the balance between chic elegance and current trends. Born in Beirut but brought up in Buckinghamshire, Amal’s style often reflects that fusion of cultures. Bright hues and vibrant prints mixed with classic tailoring and crisp cuts are what you might call a signature for the 40-year-old, while flowing gowns in lavender, gold and everything in between are a showbiz-event mainstay. Keep scrolling to see Amal’s best looks, from sleek workwear to her Venice wedding wardrobe.

Style Notes: Amal is officially the queen of polished style. Chic yet smart, this Oscar de la Renta tweed co-ord was the perfect choice for a trip to the U.N.

Style Notes: Nothing rivalled this dramatic Richard Quinn gown at 2018's Met Gala (nope, not even Rhianna's Pope's mitre). Featuring a pair of silk trousers and billowing floral skirt, Amal was certainly the belle of the ball.

Style Notes: Crushed velvet is the '90s fabric that has seen a resurgence this season, and Amal shows us how it's done with simple accessories and movie star hair.

Style Notes: Clooney reveals her more playful side with this asymmetric ruffled jumpsuit. This woman sure knows which colours suit her.

Style Notes: We're taking all our winter coat inspiration from this power-blue number, which features a fun fluffy collar and tortoiseshell buttons. We also reckon it would look just as good with jeans at the weekend as it does with stilettos.

Style Notes: There was universal agreement that Amal Clooney's Stella McCartney yellow frock was one of the best wedding-guest looks from Harry and Meghan's wedding. Also, kudos for rewearing her fave pair of gold stilettos.

Style Notes: Now that's what you called suited and booted. It may seem simple, but Amal has perfected the art of suit dressing, which is no mean feat. The high-waisted, bootcut trousers make her legs look a mile long.

Style Notes: A small glimpse into the other world of Amal Clooney: mum to twins Ella and Alexander. We guess this is as dressed down as she gets, but she still looked super pulled-together with leather trousers and a Stella McCartney waistcoat.

Style Notes: Of course, the Oscar de la Renta wedding dress was spectacular. But we fell in love with this Stella McCartney pantsuit Amal wore to make her marriage official in Venice.

Style Notes: Amal’s trick to making high-octane hues feel polished? Grounding accents, like the sleek black trim on this Bottega Veneta coat and shift dress. The cuts also make for a super-flattering maternity wardrobe… Who’d have guessed she was pregnant with twins here?

Style Notes: Vintage chainmail Versace and all-gold accessories. Proof that sometimes matchy-matchy is the way forward.
