I'm so tired of the spouses of famous people dressing like demure housewives. Kate Middleton has a pretty nice style, but it looks exactly like how a Prince's wife should dress, no more, no less. Amal Clooney, formerly Amal Alamuddin, totally breaks free of the mold and blends out-there funky pieces with a kind of ladylike polish that's never bland or expected. It makes sense, too, as she's far from George Clooney's wife, having made a reputable name for herself long before their union as a human rights lawyer and activist. I have to hand it to Amal; she has amazing style. Here are my favorites of her recent looks.
This ensemble proves that jumpsuits can look totally sophisticated, especially when combined with glamorous earrings and great heels.
Only a human rights lawyer as esteemed as Clooney could step out in seriously-distressed denim and still command all the respect from her onlookers.
Clooney rocks the co-ord matching separates trend with polish, proving the style can be worn at all ages, but she adds some funk with her platform creepers. I think we all wish we could travel in this much style.
She doesn't shy away from print, and from the looks of it, has no reason to. Somehow, her style is aware of the trends (hello, 70's style!), but never looks try-hard. She works hard, why not reward herself with some serious fashion?
I honestly don't know what I'm more jealous of, her successful and admirable career, her husband, or her killer sense of style. Amal is definitely an icon to watch.
