By now, it’s pretty clear that the world is a bit more fascinated with George Clooney’s wife than they are with the actor himself. And can you blame us? Amal is supremely intelligent, an accomplished human rights lawyer, beautiful and stylish to boot. She is exactly what you think of when you imagine the modern woman who has it all. Though she is quite a glamorous woman whose love story is something of a Hollywood fairy tale, when she’s at work, she means business.
Journalist Bruno Waterfield found this out the hard way when he asked Amal about her personal style during an appearance at the European Court of Human Rights. The reporter tweeted the details of the exchange, saying he asked her about “fashion speculation,” to which the 36-year-old lawyer replied, “I’m wearing Ede & Ravenscroft,” a brand established in 1689 that makes ceremonial robes for graduations — and also for the U.K. judiciary. It even provides those wigs lawyers in the U.K. always have to wear.
Guys, she handled that one perfectly. We’re putting this one into the “reasons to love Amal Clooney” file we’ve been keeping, which right now, is pretty much full.
