Amal Clooney leans into spring fashion in a rare red carpet appearance at the Prince’s Trust Awards in London today. The human rights lawyer arrived in a red floral strapless dress with white heels and a white clutch. She wears matching red lips and has wavy brown hair. Her dress complemented both the rug and the step and repeat backdrop perfectly.
Amal talked to Time earlier this year about why she chose to protect women, children and journalists in her legal work.
“I am reacting to what I see happening in the world,” she explains. “A world where the guilty are free and the innocent are imprisoned – where human rights violators are free, and those who report abuse are locked up. As a lawyer, I can do something about that. Or at least I can try. So my work is focused on trying to free victims and prosecute perpetrators — and in general, our work is trying to really do that on a large scale and across the globe. bridge. When I choose a case, I think carefully about the ripple effect…. So I think about which one will have the biggest impact — not just on that individual, but on people. other vulnerable. ”
She also addressed her marriage to George Clooney and the limited attention she gives to her advocacy work in the press and on social media.
“Marriage is great,” she began. “I have an inspirational and supportive husband in my husband, we have a home full of love and laughter. It was a joy beyond anything I could have imagined. I feel so lucky to have found the great love of my life and to be a mother – this is how I regained my balance. ”
“In terms of the growing public profile, I think all I can do is try to shift attention to what’s important,” she continued. “That could certainly benefit some customers. If I’m at a working function and reporting on it focuses on unrelated issues, there’s not much I can do about that. Since I can’t control it, my approach is just not to dwell on it too much but just get on with my work and life and hope that the attitude will catch on. And I really feel like there’s a women’s solidarity that’s built on these issues, where other women will call it in a way that probably wouldn’t have happened five or 10 years ago. So attitudes are changing.”
