Human rights activist Amal Clooney showed off her fabulous fashion sense as she stepped out in a stunning silk gown for the United Nations Correspondents Association Awards in New York City on Wednesday night.
The 40-year-old was absolutely glowing in the floor-length, blue and white gown which floated gracefully to the floor while she walked alongside actor husband George.
With her brunette locks styled in soft curls, the mother-of-two shone in the elegant gown which she paired with dangly earrings and a pink lip for the lavish event.
It was an exciting moment for Amal, who was the recipient of a coveted award at the Cipriani 42nd Street venue.
The international human rights attorney, was honoured as the 2018’s Global Citizen of the Year in front of her beloved partner and parents-in-law.
According to Yahoo 7, Amal took the opportunity while on stage to address US President Donald Trump’s labelling of American journalists, while also defending the two journalists who were jailed in Myanmar for their reporting of the murders of the Rohingya community.
“And you, the press, are under attack like never before,” the publication reported she said. “You are being jailed at a higher rate than ever. You are dying while covering wars, not just because you walk unarmed on the most dangerous places on earth but because you are being targeted for exposing crimes committed, for speaking the truth that perpetrators find the most difficult to hear.”
The beautiful brunette hasn’t been spotted out and about much of late, with one of her most recent appearances being the Pennsylvania Conference for Women back in October.
It was here as a keynote speaker she spoke of the #MeToo movement and President Donald Trump’s recent comments about Professor Christine Blasey.
Amal received a standing ovation for her passionate speech, as she said: “Survivors in any country deserve the chance to look their abusers in the eye and for history to record what has happened to them.
That means the president of a country should not publicly ridicule a women who courageously comes forward to allege abuse. And it means the leader of the senate should not assure constituents that he would ‘plow right through’ her testimony,” she continued.
