Amal Clooney is a woman of many talents. She’s an accomplished human rights lawyer, a mother of twins, a wife to Hollywood icon George Clooney, and a very, very seasoned red carpet dresser. Since the Lebanese-British barrister announced her engagement to her now husband George in 2014, her elegant, Old Hollywood style quickly became a matter of public interest.
Right from the get-go, Amal was stepping out to galas, Royal weddings, and major red carpets with an air of confidence that we’d expect from seasoned Hollywood professionals. Throughout it all, Amal’s red carpet style has remained reliably consistent. She’s always been a champion of one-shoulder goddess gowns, usually some sort of Dior couture or archival McQueen, and has a special bond with billowing strapless gowns in either chiffon or satin. That doesn’t mean, though, that Amal won’t venture outside of her comfort zone from time to time—she raised a few eyebrows by wearing pants at the 2018 Met Gala—with glitzy, party-ready looks from the likes of 16Arlington and Versace. And, believe it or not, Amal has pulled off all these looks without the help of stylist. Below, a look back at Amal Clooney’s best red carpet moments.
