Amal Clooney’s (née Alamuddin) meteoric professional climb reads like an elite name check in law. Currently a barrister at Doughty St. Chambers in London, Clooney’s former roles at The Hague and special advisory roles at the UN and for the King of Bahrain, make her one of the globe’s leading professional women. With the limelight secured on her every sartorial move, Clooney’s philanthropic appointments are now closely dotted with dates for red carpet appearances with husband and fellow activist, George Clooney. French stylist, Alexis Roche is credited as inputting on Amal Clooney style selections for high season in her schedule, and has helped created capsule wardrobes for the star lined with Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney.
Clooney is known to navigate her way through the strict dress code for barristers in chambers with on-point suits by Chanel, and elegant numbers from Oscar de la Renta. Vogue Arabia decodes the wardrobe of the Lebanese lawyer. Her favorite brands from her clothing repertoire have seen her in creations by her staple favorite designers, Giambattista Valli and Versace, and rare finds from William Vintage, a specialist store in London founded by William Banks-Blaney. Clooney applies her IQ to her style choices too; in keeping with her formal daytime dress code, the barrister (clients include Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks; and Egyptian journalist Mohamed Fahmy) contrasts her on-duty look with her laid-back luxe armory of Citizens Against Humanity jeans, neat biker jackets, and Ash buckled high-tops. Clooney was shortlisted in 2014 for Best British Style at the British Fashion Awards alongside Kate Moss, Keira Knightley, and David Beckham, to little or no surprise.
Be it a hearing in the Big Apple, a red carpet premiere with George in arm, or a reception at the UN, Amal Clooney’s style file is punctuated with preppy, pristine, and on-point fashion flair.
