  1. I like everything except the pants. They do not flatter her figure very well – her backside looks flat (shapeless) in them. In fact, I don’t think that those pants were cut to really flatter any woman, in general.

  2. Beautiful pictures of Amal. I truly think she enjoys her job and looks more at ease when working than elsewhere.
    Her suit is impeccable and her hair and make up were properly natural. She looks so good natural! Doesn’t need much. That to me is an asset to a woman.
    No hair touching, not trying to be extra nice to photographers…….
    Loved when Mrs. Nasheed said that they hired her because she was an excellent lawyer, not because of her celebrity. And that they have been working with her before celebrity. Go Amal, go!
    Never stop being your very own self, that is all we have, no matter clothes, husbands, etc. Etc. That is what you projected at the very beginning and what made us fall in love with you. Keep it and make it grow! Again, go Amal!

  3. The petition to the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention was brought by by Jared Genser and Maran Turner of Freedom Now. All UN correspondence, in this regard, attests to this. DSC, Amal Clooney, were brought in late.

    It does open to question why the focus has centred recently upon DCS attachment, and why it is being made to appear that Genser, et al (including local Maldavian counsel) have been relegated to a secondary position, if not for the PR/media motive.

    Furthermore, it’s perhaps telling to note the attendance of Geoffrey Robertson QC (DSC) as having no involvement, of record, on this case, yet seeming to be required to oversee and be on hand. Again, opening to question, is Amal Clooney being tasked beyond her experience and capability and, in reality, in need of monitoring.

    Now, not to discredit her basic qualifications, but ought a junior of so few years call (very much still with her training wheels on) be being presented as having a leading role for which she is not yet properly seasoned in terms of proper experience.

    At what point does the balance between Law and the appearance of ‘law’, by PR, tip to become as great, if not an even greater, problematic issue of “fairness and transparency” than that which the key actors responsible for such imbalancing purport to advocate against?

    Like

    • what is your point Null??? The bottom line is that her involvement seems to be relevant enough to be pushing things forward. Neither Genser, nor Robertson or anyone else seems to be at all concerned with any suposedly exagerated PR as you sugest., so why should anyone else be placing observations where it does not exist any animosity? Amal is going places for her cases, she is advocating, she is traveling, she is moving, meeting, sher is reaching out..so i dont really care how many years would take anyone else to be on the position she is in, the light is on her for a reason.

      There is an article that highlinghts her views on how she jumped faster on the steps of her career, . you may wish to read it to see her frame of mind. I think she is doing it while many are calculating her moves. In the end the doers and goers get somewhere while others watch. It seems her coleagues are very well aware of their own goal on their involvement on the case and they are credited well in them, but her publicity is not the only thing moving the cases forward; her hard work on the background and a team work is what is bringging results and in the end such results will benefit all involved with her. I think for them that is not at all a loss. quite the contrary, and i am sure they know it and want that.

      • She has not jumped ‘faster’ – she is in fact lagging behind compared to others of her call. I haven’t the time today, but I will in time give you several examples of barristers of Amal’s call who are miles ahead of her. I would be immensely surprised if she ever makes silk. She simply does not put in the hours.

        That is not to say AC has no merit – just some perspective would help in this conversation. AC has many excellent qualities, but she is nowhere near the best compared to her cohort.

      • Nadia, the light is on Amal because she married a worldwide famous Hollywood star by the name of George Clooney! If she had not married George, none of us would know anything about Amal! Prior to Amal’s name being linked to George, did you have any idea that a lady human rights barrister by the the name of Amal Alamuddin existed in this world? Yes, Amal is a qualified human rights barrister, but she is not the only one in the world! There are quite a few very well-respected human rights barristers in the UK and hundreds of them all over the world! We do not know anything about them because neither one of them is married to a world-famous celebrity! They are known in their career field and by their families, relatives and friends and that is it! People who need the services of a human rights lawyer are flocking to the law firm in which Amal works and are asking for her specific services because of the worldwide publicity she brings to anything that she is involved with. Publicity (especially worldwide) is a must for any case involving human rights! The more people and governments know about a case, the more pressure is placed on the human rights violators! And, with lots of international pressure on them, there always is an excellent possibility for the victims to be released from imprisonment! Amal can easily provide buckets of publicity to anything by her mere presence and that (whether you like or not) only started happening for her after she got involved with George Clooney!!! How obtuse can you be that you stubbornly refused to get this through your head!!! By stating these true facts, I am in no way, shape or form insulting Amal. I happen to like and admire Amal very much; but that does not make me blind and deaf to reality! The problem with you, Nadia, is that you never let the truth get in the way of your over-ripe imagination!

      • @ERS, I’d be interested on your take re: aspects of this appearing to be an attempt to institute an ad hoc extension of something akin to the US Magnitsky Act/sanctions?

        Geofferey Robertson QC has been an advocate for establishing such provisions in Law across the EU and/or within the UK, but hasn’t made much ground at formal level. It was even reported that he arranged an informal supper with the former Leader of the British Labour Party, Ed Milliband, in an attempt to lobby for his support on this. Both Clooneys were reported to have been guests at this supper too, with George having apparently said the story of Magnitsky would make a good movie.

        It does seem as though Amal’s celebrity, through her marriage, is forming a plank within attempts to alter current Law by way of altering public perception upon when sanctions may or may not be an appropriate course expected from the International community.

        Certainly, I’d value you any thoughts you might have on this possible joining of some dots.

      • PS: ESR, also it is important that i make clear that i dont really care when tabloids state: ” one of the worlds greatest lawyers” .. blah blah types of tags for Amal. “Great”, “the best” and all these tittles are subjective i discard them coming from tabloids because the next day they could be writing the complete oposite.. so i am not seating here believing naivelly that Amal is the worlds greatest lawyer or that she is better than the others, certainly i am not judging that… i dont care for such labels, what i care is that she is doing things, she is going places, she is getting somewhere positivelly. How far she will reach on the lawyer/achievement /certification scale is irrelevant to me. I just wish her the best. That is all i can really do:)

    • Null, here you go: http://utv.ie/Entertainment/2015/09/17/Amal-Clooney-gives-career-advice-to-Galway-student-45175
      But keep in mind that i dont realy care for any of that! I care that she is doing things her way and it is working for her it seems, she must be happy with what she is doing and acomplishing, the pressure is on her if she does not get where some others will with more work hours behind the desk and without her celebrity. The women has more than most of us already so who am i to judge her ways? Alll those paper certificates are good, but in her case, she has other “cards” to use on her “game” so good for her! As long as she is doing it with integrity the results will come. If not, i am not to blame:)

      * ESR, i do understand that for people on the law practice it must feel hard to see Amal taking publicity for what maybe others never get a chance to. But my point is that, i personaly, dont care for the yerarchy of the metier, you or course do and that is your right to argument. But it is important to know that most people focus on what is being done and she is doing things! It is perhars exactly what she wants to do, maybe she enjoys this angle of involvement and her publicity now can help so she can indeed achieve results, as she already has. All your points are valid and taken, but, i personally dont care for steps, for order of things, If she can achieve in 15 years of work what most can achieve with 25 years, hey i take her 15 years! Besides, it is not like she is really in concern of not making it finantially, she already has and even BEFORE she married George. Also to be fair to her, she is not going around braging about anything, others are doing that! She cannot and must not waste her precious time going after tabloid to dismiss alll they publish. You must know how tabloids lie, insinuate, deviate, and make assumptions to get clicks, it is a game for them.

      * Luciana, please allow me to not feel the way you feel about things darling. I am free to think whatever i want, and you as well. But lets stay with the facts indeed! The fact is, she was working on the Nasheed case BEFORE she married George and most of her prominent work was BEFORE she married George so sorry to say to you buit you are not focusing on facts. And, really… so what if she has fame now for marrying a celebrity? Great!! Ask the other lawyers to go marry a celebrity as well and they willl be following her steps too! It is not her fault if she fail in love with a movie star, is it? It is also naive to expect that she would not get any celebrity status herself after marrying him! I dont get your arguments on that!! She is using her new status with a lot of grace and if that can move forward her goals in getting people out of jail, so be it! I love that! Most people appeciate that so lets all wish the best for her, right?

      • I promised Nadia an example of what a high-achiever looks like. Let’s take the example of Nikolaus Grubeck who was called to the Bar the same year as AC and completed pupillage alongside her (http://www.monckton.com/barrister/nikolaus-grubeck/). You will see the quantity, quality, and range of Nik’s work far exceeds anything that AC has done, and – unlike AC – has has this year been listed in Chambers and Partners (which is one sign of quality). He also has far better academics than her.

        Alongside an extensive range of his own independent work (which AC seems not to do at all) Nik was recently part of a team representing Afghan detainees at the Court of Appeal. The group took on the UK government whilst working under a conditional fee arrangement which means if they lose they don’t get paid. AC has the privilege of being able to afford to work like this, her colleagues do not. They do it because they truly care. You will rarely see a barrister like Nik out as often as Amal is. Why not? Because he is working. And when a trial is on he is up – like the rest of the juniors during major trials – until 3am doing last minute research, barely sleeping for the majority of the week.

        Another example is Shane Sibbel at Blackstone (http://blackstonechambers.com/people/barristers/shane_sibbel.html) – huge quantity of work, including some sexy human rights stuff (which involved appearing in court and getting a result), better academics than AC, and an impressive range across many areas of law.

        Then there’s Martha Spurrier (http://www.doughtystreet.co.uk/barristers/profile/martha-spurrier) – again, lots more work… she has been published more extensively than AC, sits on more committees than AC, but in addition to all that she actually practises law and appears in court getting excellent results for very needy clients (children, the mentally ill and otherwise marginalised).

        So please, before singing the excessive praises of AC, do remember that there are many more barristers in London who are a) better qualified, b) have undertaken a broader range and quality of work, and c) actually do get results for those in need. AC has accepted a narrow role – getting publicity for select causes, but let us not entertain the facade that it is possible to lead a jet set lifestyle and practise law.

      • Nadia, I couldn’t care less about the hierarchy at the bar. What I do care about, however, is a little honesty about who AC is and what she is doing. Forgive me, but I have never been able to stand hyperbole. If you tell me that she is hired for her legal expertise, I must correct you (there are many better qualified in that respect). If you tell me that she has gone further in her career than her colleagues, again I must correct you – her colleagues outflank her.

        Whilst AC may have little control over the media, she does have some – in a BBC interview she said she will just ‘keep working and taking cases’ despite being called an actor’s wife. An honest response would have been ‘I am an actor’s wife, I also happen to be a lawyer. I am going to use those two facets of my life to the benefit of the select few clients who I can support whilst leading a particular lifestyle that my husband and I are accustomed to.’ That is an honest answer. Her answer ‘oh I’m very disappointed by the media, I’m just going to ignore it and keep working’ portrays an altogether different image – of a hard working woman focussed solely on her cases, a martyr to the media. Neither of these things are true.

        AC also has control over how her husband portrays her – he has been the source of much of the inaccurate portrayals of AC in the media. Instead of educating him on the basics of her job, she allows him to peddle the hyperbole.

        On the finances, this notion that a junior barrister at somewhere like Doughty Street is raking in cash needs to be stamped on its head. Doughty St practises public law, there is hardly any money in it, and their pupillage award is a meagre £35,000 (as compared to the other top 50 sets that offer double this) You’re not financially carefree in London on sums in that region. Yes, you can buy the occasional Paule Ka dress or Italian shoe, and particularly so if you come from a wealthy Lebanese family with assets, but the other hyperbolic statement I’ve never been able to stomach is that barristers are – by virtue of their title – automatically financially secure. Some are, many are not. And AC would not have earned enough to support a lavish lifestyle before her husband. She would have been comfortable enough, with the odd luxury (if you’re single and don’t have kids, then it’s fine), but nothing as outrageous as today.

        I simply do not accept that a woman as intelligent as Amal, so perfectly poised and media savvy, has no control over her public image. And it is that image I seek to shine a light on.

      • Let us not forget that Baria, Amal’s mom, runs/ran a PR company. As a member of the press, she also has extensive connections in that business and may be getting her daughter these interviews (which, I’m sure also helps Baria’s career, as well, as being family of a famous person could give her more exclusive access to people). In this particular case, Mohamed himself is a member of the press, so he, too, could set up this interview easily with his colleagues.

        And, not once have I bought the line about Amal being rich on her own. She was definitely a pampered kid who is now pampered by her husband.

        As far as George’s claims about Amal go, I take those with a grain of salt. George isn’t an intellectual. He’s about as intellectual as the plumber that I hired to fix my kitchen sink last week (actually, maybe the plumber is more intelligent). George is an actor, and, in showbiz, the ONLY thing that matters is image, which is why he himself has a PR team. In Hollywood, substance doesn’t really matter. In fact, in Hollywood, the mere *appearance* of substance can go a long way toward cultivating an image.

        What I write here doesn’t mean that I think that Amal is not smart. She’s well-educated, but I can see ESR’s point that she under performs in comparison with her colleagues. I think that Amal chose to limit her cases (and career), so that she can enjoy her new lifestyle with George. See really appears to enjoy being in the limelight, regardless of context.

        Making it on one’s own – completely on one’s own – is an extremely difficult thing to do, and that is why it is so rare to witness. Even George had family Hollywood connections that helped him along the way. He also never knew poverty or true struggle. In fact, he’s likely always been a beneficiary of white male privilege. So, in that sense, I think that they are a fitting match.

      • In my post above, when I wrote “in this particular case” – I was referring to the press conference that she held with Fahmy, not the press conference mentioned in this post (sorry – was confused about which post I was commenting under).

        Anyway, I sometimes wonder – if there are ways to achieve fame and fortune that don’t involve the isolation of sequestering oneself in an office for such a huge amount of one’s life (during the best years of one’s life, I might add), then who can blame Amal for choosing that option? She may never achieve Silk, but she’s already more famous and has greater personal wealth than most of her peers. She lives a fun, full life and fights for her causes. Who could ask for more?

        As an academic scientist who often feels painfully isolated from the world because of the demands of her job, I can appreciate that Amal doesn’t torture herself for her career. If I could do the same, I would.

      • Lady, but there is the fallacy. One does not, by marrying an actor, achieve a shortcut to fame and fortune for one’s merits. Those merits must be proportionate to the fame sought, otherwise they shall be eclipsed by the marriage. And that is what has happened here.

        Framed in this way, would I dispense with my hard work – and let’s face it, my career – to be famous for marrying a highly eligible bachelor? I am not so sure.

        I would seek a third way, in an attempt to have my cake and eat it. I would the marry the actor in an incredibly low profile wedding and lead a very unremarkable and low profile private life. That is, I suspect, the only to retain a career remarkable for its achievement. Of course, finding an actor who would want to change their lifestyle in such a way is almost impossible.

      • Hi ESR, – I totally agree with you and would likely act the same (although, having a fortune would help me relax a little more about my work schedule so that I could spend more time with my family, and I’d never seek out fame). I wasn’t saying that she should be appreciated more than her peers for her merits, and I do agree with your assessment regarding how her accomplishments are touted by the media. What I was saying was that I get the impression that Amal doesn’t necessarily care about how she has achieved fame and fortune, just that she has those things. And, a lot of people are like that – this is likely especially true about anyone who is a favorite subject of fashion and gossip magazines, as they often court the paparazzi (as much as they complain about it). I’m just saying this as an observer of human behavior, not that I think that this type of status achievement should be rewarded.

        A lot of career-driven famous/wealthy types manage to avoid the hype and limelight – diplomats, [super-wealthy] innovators (Bill Gates, Steve Jobs), even other career-driven spouses of Hollywood types. There is definitely a way that Amal could have done so, as well. I honestly think that she doesn’t care how her peers perceive her and that she really just wants to court the media and cultivate a certain image for the public, just like the rest of the crowd that she fell in with: her husband George, Cindy Crawford, and Rande Gerber.

For a long time I thought – naively and perhaps conceitedly – that an educated barrister from Doughty Street (even at the bar, they are renowned for their self righteousness) would seek a third way. But I have now come to share your view.

      • ESR, first of, thank you for your time and consideration and for ellaborating your point on this. As you know i am very respectful of your opinions and much appreciate your inteligent, fair and eloquent and factual contibutions to the discussions. A good debate is one that we dont nescesserally agree on all points but one where we can appreciate and respect each others imput.

        That said, it would not be my goal to ever compare Amal to anyone. I dont think it is fair to compare because each have so different lives and ambitions and ways to achieve them. Amal surelly seems to have had a confortable life, but that is not to take away her hard work and comitment to her studies and knowledge and then resume her to “an actor’s wife and”… I do not think she is living the stardands of what many would consider a ‘house wife lifestyle” on the known sense of the word. She does not cook, she does not wash, no kids, not home-making engagements, etc… Things are shifting and there seem to be new ways for women to do things even though it is still hard for most of us women to create new concepts or even accept them. The reality of money/fame versus no money/no fame also influences such platforms. There is also people’s different perceptions/value of money-fame and the focus they place on it. There are many who would not work a day if they had money, and there are the ones like Linda Gate who is not going around shouting that she is the wife of the richest man in the world!

        So, i understand that there is a lot of troubles on the Amal concept for some, because we wish to encapsulate her into an already existent mold, but we cant find such mold, and that is why she is interesting to me. Maybe it was never her intent to become a Silk, maybe if it was she would be doing her work differently and diligently torwards that. So i have no clue of what the heavens she wants to do with her life and career and that is where i stop to just contemplate and let it. There are more important things for me to focus on. I do really aplaude the many people, like “Lady”, who says she keeps herself into much focus on her work and that brings a bit of isolation, and many others whom, as you said ESR, we never hear about. Even Amal had her anonimosity before marrying George. It is what it is. It seems that, no matter what, there is a price to pay for all that we choose. I am yet to have a full comprehension of Amal, her character, goals or personality because what i have access to her and her daily life is so little and based on fragmented bits we are shown here and there via tabloids, and i know how tabloids operate. Latelly we are seeing more of Amal, expressing herself on camera, talking about things that she cares for on her profession only, so i am observing, contemplating and watching herself to unfold. One thing for sure, you wont find me placing big tags/tittle on her because such are not that relevant to me.

        “Lady” has so well ellaborated her argument that i am going to keep mine short (really!:)) because my thoughts aligns much with what she wrote, but also, what you say ESR is coherent with me, because you bring on good points to be reflected on. I do reflect on them and in the many inteligent points that many of you make here. Perhaps the disparities of our opinions is because we indeed live in a superfitial society where we demand so much from the individual but once such indicvidual achieve it we place them on the shadow. There are so many incredible people doing great things and the most shallow of us wont ever hear from them, or ever care for their contribution, but that is not to say that such individuals are not being seen or remarked for their incredible acomplishments. Amal too is doing some relevant things, in her own way, maybe in a very unconventional way. Indeed, to live under the radar must be even more challenging and questionable, so that is why i keep my judgement light torwards Amal. As long as she keeps using her new celebrity status with grace, and keeps doing her part to make positive impacts as much as she can – AND STOPS USING ANIMAL SKINS – i give her deserved credit for her achievements, no more nor less, just what i see as facts. I cannot and will not place my judgement basing myself on tabloids or exagerations only.

        Again, I am glad you mentioned those hard-working and achievers individuals ERS, now i can discover them as well:)

        Amal keeps me coming back here because there is something unique about her – and of course, because i love fashion a bit lot:) – but i would not say her uniqueness is better, or superior than anyone else, it is just unique and it is interesting to me. I dont have the time to focus on so many so i spend a bit time on her, and i spend time observing some other people whom certainly have no clue in fashion, but are, nevertheless, incredible people who are doing incredible things, breakig barriers, doctors scientists, teachers, ordinary extraordinary people, selfless individuals who are beyond themselves contributing a great deal to the world. I bow to them thankfully. To each their merit. I am a natural born cheerleader and i appreciate the small as much as i appreciate the bigger contributions. All counts.

        Sorry for any typo or grammar errors, no time to edit and English is not my native language:)

        Thank you!

When the interviewer implied she got the caae because shes a celebrity, she handled it with class and turned it around to focus on naseed. Girl power!!!!

    • I agree kayKay, the interview was very good, she is so very at easy on camera, knows exactly what to say to reach her goal. Smart and aceertive. Many can say whatever they want, but one cannot deny she get smething in her that makes a whole lot?

      • I thoght CNN interview was bad with Amal. I was vry dissappointed she did not correct Amanpour on not true bit about why Nasheed was charged in the begining. She say about “over a judge who was fired” and Amal did not try to correct, so like she agree even tho that is wrong. The judge was not “sacked” by Nasheed. The was arrested doing his work and detained and not alowed a lawyer. That fact of occurrence has been know a fact even Amal know to be true. I get she is there to paint her picture for her client in good light but not to correct that is like a not of honesty in her.

        She wanted to get to saying about her and Fahmy to much. Amanpour had to calm her down and delay so Laila could say more about her husband. That was not a good representing a focused lawyer. I think her wrong like she brag talking about Fahmy brother saying she was first phone call. like it was all about her again.

        I think it was a bad interview and she was looking to someone off to the back of camera at least once. like she not know things.

  5. Beautiful make up! Just right! Lovely head to toe, but again WAY TOO THIN! She’s losing her shape because she is getting way too thin. All pants are starting to just drape on her. She’s becoming emaciated. It’s not a healthy look. Cute outfit, however.

  6. At first, I was so impressed with Amal’s style, because it seemed real… but now, every day is a new really expensive outfit… do you think she is buying them, or are designers just providing for the PR value? If the latter, it is disappointing, because I like to think she has real taste and is not just a clothes horse….what do you think?

    • Some pieces are from 2012 or 2013. Amal always loves fashion designers and she has the money for that. Personally I love her style. She can mix very well colors. But her clothes are quite expensive. She is a good inspiration never boring. On the other side, she is a working woman and in the celebrities world it is unique. On Saturday, I was shocked by the bombardement at MSF hospital in Kunduz and I wouln’t be able to go to party. But Amal went to party with George. Everyone is different and Amal has her own life.

      • Nati, I think Amal is trying to be the good wife. She looked very tired in the outing. Imagine the jet lag!
        But she was there for George. She couldn’t make it the night before so she came home (tired, I suppose) and made it for George. That’s the way love is!

    • Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief of American Vogue Magazine helped Amal strike deals with several worldwide-famous designers. Since the moment that Amal became linked to George Clooney, she became a magnet for tons of publicity. After their marriage, the publicity for Amal soared sky-high and more and more famous designers contacted her to offer their merchandise free of any cost. The designers realized that Amal was not going to be a flash-in-the spot kind of celebrity, but that she had enormous staying-in-the-limelight power (as she indeed has amply demonstrated!) She and George, being no fools, promptly accepted! What do the designers gain? Untold publicity for their products! It costs millions for designers to advertise their products in publicity campaigns on print and online magazines, on television, in movie screens, etc. By giving Amal clothes, shoes, handbags, jewelry, hats, eyewear, etc., to wear, they lose nothing and gain worldwide publicity for their products that goes from one corner of the world to another and that lasts indefinitely! This incredible exposure is simply invaluable for designers. They consider it free publicity, and they just love it! On her turn, Amal gets to wear the latest exquisitely-designed, beautiful, super expensive couture (and shoes, bags, etc.) every day of the year! And she and George pay nothing for it! Amal does buy some pieces that she especially likes, and George, who is so enamored of her, is constantly buying her stuff, and of course, the designers (who want to keep her happy and satisfied) let her keep many pieces for free. They give those to her as an extra thank you present! So everyone gains; nobody loses! That is the true story of how Amal Clooney can afford to always wear super expensive clothes, shoes, bags, etc. Not even the super-rich heiresses of the world can keep up with Amal when it comes to the wearing of high fashion! Three cheers for Amal!!!

      • True up to a point, Nati. Most of the clothes she has been wearing since her wedding are from new collections (In many instances, Amal is wearing the clothes before they are on sale to the general public.) There is nothing wrong with that. Good for Amal is all I say!
