Amal Clooney Swaps Business Casual for a Little Red Dress

Amal Clooney typically stays out of the spotlight, dedicating her time to her twins and her work as a lawyer and human rights activist. But on those rare occasions when she does make a public appearance, her style never fails to impress.

The working mom gave the classic combination of jeans and a nice top a modern update earlier this week for dinner in Midtown Manhattan (she’s in the city for a meeting with the U.N.) wearing baggy jeans, a crystal-effect top, and a blazer. The following day she emerged from the Whitby Hotel with her mother in yet another glamorous look—a red dress from Sukeina’s spring-summer 2022 collection. 


The scene-stealing midi, which skimmed just below her knee, is a similar cut to some of the fitted dresses that define her polished work wardrobe, with its high neck, cinched waist, and body-sculpting silhouette, but the unique hand-braided Bassari skirt set it apart from Clooney’s business-casual wardrobe.  

Designer Omar Salam, founder and creative director of Sukeina—a finalist for this year’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund—is behind Amal’s fiery look. He’s used to dressing female powerhouses: In the recent past, Naomi Campbell and Oscar winner Jessica Chastain have worn his designs.
