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, Lebanon, 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.
