A jumpsuit tends to read as a bold choice for formal-occasion dressing, but Amal Clooney has just demonstrated two different pitch-perfect ways to style the garment in the space of a single week. The lawyer and human rights activist makes a compelling case for the formal jumpsuit as a wardrobe staple.
On May 16, Clooney attended The Prince’s Trust and TKMaxx & Homesense Awards in London, wearing a custom Atelier Versace jumpsuit in light pink cashmere. The simple one-piece featured a square neckline and ultra-wide-leg pleated trousers, with a black belt for a touch of contrast. She paired her effortlessly elegant ’fit with a simple box clutch and statement chandelier earrings.
Clooney offered a very slightly dressed-down jumpsuit look a day later at the international digital festival 4Gamechangers in Vienna. The 45-year-old took the stage in a sleeveless dark gray one-piece. The buttons, wide lapels, and subtle pinstripes gave the impression of a womenswear version of the classic men’s suit.
She may be married to Mr. Hollywood himself, George Clooney, but Amal Clooney rarely takes to the red carpet for anything other than a worthwhile humanitarian cause. In September of 2022, while hosting the Albie Awards at the New York Public Library, George was full of praise for his impressive wife. “Amal has gotten journalists out of Egypt, out of Azerbaijan, in prisons all over the world, Myanmar,” he said, per . “This is something she happens to be really, specially gifted at.”
