Amal Clooney with Dom & Ink eyes – Illustrator

AMAL low res

Amal Clooney is a good inspiration for everyone. I already saw many drawings about Amal, but this one was “special” and “original”. Dominik Evans is an illustrator and author, his last book is entitled “Map My Style”.

On his Map My Style blog, he created a post about Amal’s style

With the title “ HOW TO POWER DRESS LIKE AMAL CLOONEY

Amal Clooney with her lawyer robe, high heels and automate coffee cup or Amal with her pink Paule Ka dress accessorized with large Prada sunglasses and mismatched Figini shoes. A style’s icon is born 🙂

  1. Now that she is Mrs. George Clooney she has the opportunity to use this to her advantage, yet she does not. When she walks into the courtroom, followed by meaningless queries about her clothes and nails, her competition immediately devalues her as simply a Hollywood accessory. Through her preoccupation with labels she adds to her own belittling in professional circles. It is hard for judges (and presidents etc) to value her input when their preconceptions are hindered by her (self created) status as a fashionista. Blogs such as this one unfortunately only feed into the media circus frenzy that accompanies her on serious cases. If she is truly ‘kind and intelligent’, she will seek less cases that serve only compensatory outcomes (eg hooded men, Elgin marbles etc) and serve the rights of the truly downtrodden with less glamorous cases. I would like to admire her, but, like her colleagues, I’m afraid it is difficult to reconcile the short expensive dresses and athletically toned legs (=vanity?) with a serious mind. Not because you cannot be beautiful and smart simultaneously but because there must exist a tension between the time invested in detailed beauty regimes and the time required to dedicate one’s mind to complicated legal matters. There are many brilliant human rights lawyers who do not call attention to themselves through their clothing, hair styles, makeup or nail polish. It is hard to believe that she is not feeding the press. A professional, humble, less glamorising self care regime would draw closer attention to her cases and shift the focus from her wardrobe to her work. I can’t help but wonder why she would not opt for that option…

      • Yes Nati, of course and I agree. But I wonder if there is a line that is being crossed? I rarely see tertiary educated women at work in their professional capacities with their hair styled down for instance. It is not deemed professional. My impression is also that professional women tend to refrain from nail polish, another instance. These are clear visual markers, calling unnecessary attention to oneself, and noted by colleagues, whose own minds often do not bend to such trivialities. I am noting these minor points (yet so major as they are noted by media everywhere!) as it is perplexing and at odds with how I’d to see her, as a champion of human rights. I just wish she was more humble and less preoccupied with looks and fashion. She would still be beautiful, but would then come across as a more ‘whole’ and ‘complete’ person. I am trying not to say it, because I do want to admire her work, but her emphasis on fashion and her appearance is, I’m afraid, beyond the norm, and I wonder if it comes across as self elevating to her colleagues and the judges etc – because of her focus on her grooming and her deliberate actions to draw extra attention to her beauty, do they now see her as an entitled Hollywood accessory…

    • see JK if she didn’t care about fashion and wasn’t stylish before George Clooney came into her life, i would have agreed with you. However, she clearly cared about fashion before she became famous and apparently her career was actually improving. my point is: she was a fashionable person before dating Clooney. In fact, the thing that I like about her is that she kept her sense of style and didn’t suddenly start running errands wearing power suits. she kept doing her thing. Most of the photos of her were taken when she wasn’t working (eg. she wore the short pink dress for lunch with friends and the white one during her wedding!!!). If you were to take photos of any lawyer on their off days, they wont be wearing professional attire too. Finally, the question about what she’s wearing in court was a sarcastic note made by a professional journalist, not a paparazzi and was taken completely out of context by the media. this is not the first thing the media over blew in relation to Amal. the media is thirsty to have news about Amal. not matter how stupid or fabricated they are.

      • Wow so JK I am reading this as a female wont be taken seriously if she wears nail polish and likes to dress well and do her hair? Thanks for sending feminism back 50 years.

      • Amal is being actually extremely discrete with her private life and where-about. We hear very little from her directly…. most of the news we read are snow-ball-effect form one outlet to the other, and, in many cases, are only speculations. So she is not really feeding the media and i promise you she is not spending that much time on self-vanity. She does what every woman who takes healthy care of herself does; keeps a clean hair, nails, appearance. How long do you think it takes her to do her makeup on her dally routine? Probably 5 minutes because she wears the bare minimum on her face. She actually looked tired at the court hearing (probably form revising tones of notes on the case and doing her homework), she was simple, very simple. So can you hate her for the fact that she would attract attention even if she were rugs or paint her face with mud? Is it her fault if she got IT and happens to be married to a worldwide celebrity now? No matter what she wears, or put on she will get attention. She has a lot to offer, that is her power more than anything else, and a lot of people get annoyed by that because that really taps on our little self-esteem, ego and insecurities. We all have those, but in some people they convert that into petty feelings of hostility towards her. She got something that we all may have hidden inside us and it is time to get it out, shall we? Here it is: CONFIDENCE…and…SELF CONFIDENCE. Do you see the difference? She got both in her.

        PS: and get married to a powerful celebrity..that helps to get the spot light in you…but the light will only stay in you if you truly got something to offer.

    • JK i was actually going to elaborate in my response to your comment… but you totally LOST me when you said that a professional womne must wear a tight hair-due and shouldn’t wear wear nail polish??? What….WHAT?? Which planet are you from dear? I am so glad Amal is not you or else i would just run out of hope for womenkind. I cant even think straight after reading such a stone-aged assumption and imposition to us women. Remember this:.. AMAL does not do what you expect her to do because she is NOT you and i am so glad and thankful for that!

      There would be more but it would be point less to elaborate to someone with such a closed mind sent as yours. Please, dont go around advocating for women with such tight mold! I certainly would not abide ti your way of thinking.

  2. Obviously there is no professional disadvantage for Mrs. Clooney in being “beyond the norm”, like you say. Perhaps we should have (or be?) more courageous women who have the heart to be “beyond the norm”?
    Remember what her collegues wrote about her brilliant professionalism and that she is “respected and admired by all her colleagues” (last April when she got engaged):

    “Joint Head of Chambers, Geoffrey Robertson QC, who has worked with Amal on the Tymoshenko and Assange cases, said: “Amal Alamuddin is a brilliant and passionate defender of human rights who has put in the enormously hard work necessary to improving them. She is respected and admired by all her colleagues.”
    Chief Executive, Robin Jackson, added: “Amal has been utterly wonderful since she arrived in Chambers. She brings a bright light to everything she is involved in, and I am so delighted at her happy news”. (Doughte Chambers Press Release 28.04.14)

    • Totally agree with you Marion! It is time for women to take one step up on this lather! Can we all see how uptight we are expected to behave in order to be respected as women? We got a long way to go, according to JK! I am thankful for Amal showing up at this stage where women in general need a courage boost to be more, to be seem for more than just appearances. It is vital that we break this assumption that a women cannot be sexy, well dressed and all that Amal convey, and also be a bass ass professional and be respected for it. Fighting against that will keep us right there on that limited mold. If people would feel that Amal cannot be a great lawyer because her hair is down or she wears nail polish, than we are still million light years to being all that we can be.

  3. Clooney welcomes Al Jazeera release

    Human rights lawyer Amal Clooney has welcomed the decision by an Egyptian judge to order the release on bail of two Al Jazeera journalists being retried on terror charges.
    The wife of Hollywood actor George Clooney said she was “encouraged” by the ruling in relation to Mohamed Fahmy, who she had acted for, and Baher Mohammed.

    The pair were sentenced with their Australian colleague Peter Greste to at least seven years in prison on terrorism-related charges in 2014, in a trial described as a sham by human rights groups.
    The three were arrested over their coverage of the violent crackdown on Islamist protests following the military overthrow of president Mohammed Morsi in 2013.
    Egyptian authorities accused them of providing a platform for Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood, now declared a terrorist organisation.
    The convictions were overturned on January 1 on procedural grounds, but the men were kept in detention pending a retrial.
    The decision to grant bail came less than a fortnight after the Egyptian president approved the deportation of Greste.
    Fahmy’s brother tweeted that he had been let out on Friday after his 250,000 Egyptian pounds ($A42,600) bail was posted but it was not clear if Mohammed had also been released.
    Canadian Fahmy, who recently renounced his Egyptian citizenship, is expected to also be deported.

    Amal Clooney said she’s encouraged by the progress of the case.
    “At the same time, there is no guarantee that a retrial will be carried out in compliance with international standards or result in the full acquittal on all charges that Fahmy deserves. It may also take several months to complete,” she said.
    “Mr Fahmy is a Canadian national who was subjected to the same unfair trial process as Mr Greste.
    “Mr Fahmy was told by high-level Egyptian officials that, as a dual Egyptian-Canadian national, he must give up his Egyptian citizenship to guarantee a transfer.
    “He had no choice but to do so. Then, just days ago, his counsel and the Canadian government were informed that his release was imminent. There is no impediment to his immediate transfer to Canada and (Canadian) prime minister (Stephen) Harper should personally intervene to ensure that the promise that was made by the Egyptian government to his government, and to its citizen, is now honoured.”

  6. Who says a woman cannot be professional AND look good. I don’t see why she can’t be professional while she wears short dress, puts on nail polish and has a fit body. she was the most desired female lawyer in Britain long before she met George. Why can’t some people just accept some women have BOTH beauty and brain.

    • I think many of the women posting here are at or have surpassed her level of professionalism and beauty. She’s just shot into the spotlight because of who she married and my fear is that she will become or is already becoming enamored with the superficiality of Hollywood. There is nothing wrong with being beautiful, fashionable , and smart, but I do agree with JK in that I think she is becoming more and more preoccupied with every detail of her dress/style and appearance which will undoubtedly affect the way she is perceived professionally.

      • Masreya, I would have to agree that some of the people posting here are very likely to have equal or greater accomplishments than Amal.

        And some of the readers are clearly misreading and misinterpreting some posts.

        There is no denying Amal’s self preoccupation and emphasis on fashion. There is no question regarding whether you can be smart and pretty. The question is whether other professionals (not bloggers or tabloids etc) consider it an intellectual and/or professional weakness/disadvantage to be so preoccupied. I wonder whether people will choose her for their cases for her brains, or the publicity she will bring. The fact she remains junior counsel at 37 and has not yet ‘lead’ any of the cases she has been involved in, perhaps indicates that her involvement by senior counsel, may simply be for the latter – her self celebrated fashion status and beauty, not her intellectual hardware.

      • Jk, Amal can’t become a senior barrister until 10 years from now. a person can apply to become a senior barrister after practicing law for 15 years. Amal has been a barrister for 5 years. i think after graduating from Oxford, she worked in corporate law, then for some reason years later she went to NYU and graduated from there and started practicing international law, with specialty in criminal, human rights, and extradition law. Although the term “junior” might imply that these barristers are less experienced, in reality, it is the junior barristers who do all the hard work and research. there are many experienced barristers (who have been practicing law for more than 15 years) that are still juniors simply because they never applied to become seniors. it is harder for the ones who are not white and males to become QC.

    • Right? Or insist that she would behave like they would!

      And that is not to imply that Amal would be better then anyone, but only validate the fact that she is entitled to be herself, and that may really be a different reality to most of us. No offense taken by me 🙂

  8. It’s hard to believe that Amal, a smart and ambitious woman, has not thought all this through. Perhaps she thinks that her celebrity will be a net benefit for her cases and her career. Certainly she has not avoided the limelight and sometimes has seemed to invite it — the multi-day extravaganza of a wedding in Venice being a case in point.

    I do wonder how she finds time to keep up with fashion. Most professionals at her level work such long hours they barely have time for a personal life.

    • i think no matter how much someone insist that the shove is hot, you would never “know” how hot it is until you touch it. Honestly, I would have married quietly if I were Amal in some quite and private place. As for how she finds time to keep up with fashion, I think because she doesn’t have children and because she doesn’t cook or clean, that allows her to go shopping, hang out with friends, attend charity and social events. After all, she does seem like a social person.

    • Janet it seems that you are spending more time worrying about what she is going to wear than she is! You are still talking about her wedding like if it was happening every day in her life hahah. (BTW every woman should have a great wedding day, what is wrong with that?) The last time you saw her on the spot light wearing expensive stuff was at the Golden globes and on her way out of LA a long time ago? The woman is keeping it really low profile. Do you really think that since then she has been spending her time plotting her next outfit? hahaha Come on? She most likely has a pile of that stuff ready to go by now. It would had taken her a few minutes to have shoved at our faces many many more…but she hasn’t! I think you are seeing way too much into it than she is spending time on it. For real!

  10. Amal is a lawyer and not all lawyers look dressed down some look very elegant this I know as I have worked for some. As for her not being interested in fashion how does anyone here know this? Her family has said she has always had her style since she was young I highly doubt that she all of a sudden discovered expensive clothes she comes from a wealthy family. She is not responsible for what the press writes it comes with the territory of being Mrs Clooney. She does not do interviews and we barely see her she does not seem interested in the limelight to me at all.

  11. Many of you here have touched at issues that I’ve found myself pondering about her. I think it comes down to the fact that she comes from a wealthy family and she married a wealthy man meaning that she doesn’t bother with the scut work of daily living like grocery shopping, cleaning house, doing laundry, etc. She may very well have a personal assistant to take care it all for her. I think that’s how she manages to always look good when out in public and still keep up with her professional responsibilities.
