Amal Clooney Made a Case for 1920s Glam in a Gold Versace Gown


Amal Clooney went all-out with a glamorous red carpet ensemble in New York on Thursday after serving up plenty of workwear and party dress inspiration over the past few months. The Lebanese barrister attended the Albie Awards—a new event hosted by her and husband George Clooney’s organization, the Clooney Foundation for Justice—wearing a golden Versace gown.

The sleeveless and form-flattering number channeled 1920s flapper girl-style with its head-to-toe crystal beaded fringes that caught the light in all the right ways. To elevate the retro mood of her ensemble, Amal Clooney swapped her signature hairstyle for a voluminous ‘do with a side part and big, textured waves, while silver eyeshadow and a bold red lip completed her look. The glam was courtesy of Charlotte Tilbury, who took to Instagram to share a behind-the-scenes video in which Amal Clooney makes a rare social media appearance. For accessories, the mother-of-two matched the metallic look with a gilded chain strap clutch, dainty diamond earrings, and silver Aquazzura heels.


The evening saw Amal and George Clooney—who looked sharp in a black tuxedo and bow tie—honor individuals “global justice defenders [journalists, human rights leaders] who are at great risk for what they do.” The awards are named after  South African former judge Justice Albie Sachs, a lawyer, activist, and writer, known for “defending people charged under racist statutes and repressive security laws.” Stars in attendance that night included Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Dua Lipa, Drew Barrymore, Oscar Isaac, Dua Lipa, John Oliver, and Ethan Hawke.
