Amal and George Clooney Attend London Premiere of Armenian Genocide film The Promise 06.04.2017

Amal and George Clooney with singer-songwriter Chris Cornell attended the London premiere of the Armenian genocide film The Promise.

Amal Clooney was not present on the red carpet.

Chris Cornell, who composed the theme song for the film, posted a photo on Twitter.

Elton John, Cher, Barbara Streisand, Andre Agassi, Sylvester Stalonner, Dean Cain and Leonardo DiCaprio have all expressed their support for the film.

The Promise,” which world-premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last September, will go on wide release in the U.S. on 2,000 screens via Open Road Films on April 21.

The roughly $100-million film is considered a breakthrough after several attempts to make a Hollywood film about the Armenian genocide failed during past decades.

“The Promise” centers on a love story involving a medical student (Oscar Isaac), a journalist (Christian Bale), and the Armenian woman (Charlotte Le Bon) who steals their hearts. All three find themselves grappling with the Ottomans’ decision to begin rounding up and persecuting Armenians.

  1. Sorry, I am not a fan of the dress to wear to a movie about Genocide. There is a time and place for everything…This is a “fun” dress with fun colors and drinks. Wear the dress at a fun cocktail party. This is a serious subject and not a time to draw attention to oneself. Amal manages to do that…. On the other hand, she looks healthy and pregnant….That is always a good look.

  2. absolutely agree with Katkan2. When it comes to dressing for the occasion Amal can often seem “tone deaf” to the subject matter of the occasion. She should have saved this one for summer in Lake Como or drinks in Malibu.

    • Amal does not really know how to dress for the occasion. The main theme in her dress style is to be almost always dressed up. In something very very expensive with a name label. You used to be able to appreciate her unique tastes, through her fashion choices early on in the marriage, but now she just seems to wear whatever the designers want her to strut. She has, to some degree, lost touch with true self.

  3. Amal can be so daft at times. Love the silhouette of this dress, but the pattern is not only horrific but so inappropriate for the occasion.

  4. She’s only human and she’s pregnant – with twins! I’m sure she’s wondering what she can fit into now – it’s a cute dress I wouldn’t wear it there maybe for a lunch or dinner with friends on a spring day 🙂

    Hi Nati, I follow the blog since the wedding, more or less. I always read each new post but I don’t write very much because of my bad English. Thanks for your incredible work, as I always say. Today I have an off topic question for you. I was surfing the Outnet web, looking at some dresses, just for fun, when one of them called my atention
    https://www.theoutnet.com/en-US/Shop/Product/Mikael-Aghal/Pleated-crepe-dress/908266
    Am I or is it exact to the Gucci that Amal wore in NY? I remember I wrote that day because the outfit was love at first sight. In your opinion as fashion expert, how is this possible? It woudn’t have been a surprise for me to have find out a clon chinese, of course. But I think this case is different. Surely this is a case of Amal for less, haha. Kisses

  6. Amal looks good, the dress is fun, very feminine and pretty, but totally inappropriate for the occasion. A dark blue, simple and elegant dress would be right for a movie about genocide.

  7. I can’t imagine, when deciding what to wear to a London premiere of Armenian genocide, a person saying/thinking, “I know just the dress to wear, my dress with all the tropical drinks, martini’s, & cocktails.” It’s a conversation piece, a distraction, and it’s loud.

  8. Why isn’t appropriate? It is not a movie or a documentary on a genocide but a movie on a love story that happened during a terrible conflict… like Gone with the Wind, Doctor Shivago, ect. It’s a Hollywood film premier on a LOVE STORY. Comme on ladies! All this biaised negativity and criticism is to tiresome and boring. I love Nati’s great work but all those useless comments….No wonder less people want to comment anymore.

      • Why can’t people have their own opinions without being attacked or being asked to defend their choice/belief? I personally don’t like the dress….. That is my opinion. You like the dress. Fine….That is your opinion. Let’s agree to disagree and move on……. I hope you have a lovely weekend….

  9. I agree with Manon B. I follow this blog from the start and it seems to me that the negative comments on Amal now predominante while in the beginning everything about Amal was good. A little more empathie for Amal would make this blog more interesting. Yes, she loves designer clothes, but isn’t that the reason why we all love this blog? Did you see the movie? If not, don’t judge about what she is wearing.

  10. Did anyone see what the Kardashian’s and Cher wore to the movie premiere? Hardly drab stuff. It’ not a funeral or even a memorial: it’s a movie premiere about a love story that takes place during the Armenian genocide. Amal’s dress would not be my choice for the event, but I am not outraged either. I think it can be hard to find dresses that will fit during the last trimester. In my own pregnancies, I wore nonmaternity clothes, as the momma kind were hideous and expensive. I worked everyday and tried to find clothes that would look good and may have use after the fact. She didn’t walk the carpet, she’s trying to avoid attention by the press. So she wore a fun dress. Big friggin’ deal.

    • Are you suggesting that a woman who wears clothes and accessories worth around $10K can’t have clothing sent to her that fits her during her pregnancy? She is not the average working woman juggling picking up the kids from daycare, wearing sneakers on her commute home and stuffing microwave dinners just in time before she has to help her kids with their homework.

    • Maybe Amal had no other dress fitting her pregnancy, and she obviously does not wear maternity clothing but still high fashion dresses, which are a bit bigger than her usual dresses.And why not bringing a positive note?

  11. My two cents..
    Amal’s choice of dress (and yes, I’m sure it was her choice) would’ve been fine if not for the print.
    Cocktails connote a celebration, which, in my opinion, was not wise.
    If they’d been little teddy bears, it would have been juvenile. She’s had the problem of propriety more than a few times, for various reasons.
    I think that that is why some are unhappy with her preference.
    I also think that she was focusing on the idea that this was a movie premiere and not taking into account the context of the movie.
    To compare her to an over-the-top icon, Cher, is just silly.
    To compare her dress to what Kim Kardashian wore is utterly ludicrous. KK is pathetic.

  12. While Jackson’s comments may be off-putting to people, most often those that tend to make judgmental comments and assumptions about the Clooneys’ private decisions and motives without having any access to their private thoughts and decision making, I am grateful that Jackson continues to call people on them. Yes, everyone is entitled to comment on Amal’s fashion choices. Yes, one can rightfully bemoan choices that reflect a lack of personal style or a lack of concern for animals used to make snakeskin shoes or to decorate a dress with ostrich feathers. One can also can agree that you’re also free to ascribe motives and project your own thoughts onto Amal and George Clooney’s public appearances and public actions, but that doesn’t make the latter judgments and projections right, and to do so says more about the writers than about the Clooneys. My first and last comment. Just tired of reading the defensive bullying of Jackson, whoever he/she may be.

      • Nati I hope you post this. Amal is not photographed at George’s birthday. For Jackson et al. who bemoan that paps stalking her. She is photographed when she wants to be photographed, and she is not photographed when does not want to be photographed. It’s not stalking or a conspiracy theory. It’s called being a celebrity and know how to work PR. She doesn’t want to be shown because she’s no longer rail thin. After she births the babies and she she looks the part — she’ll come back refreshed, renewed and twiggy again.

  13. my goodness! Put this to rest! Amal wore a fun dress to a movie premiere that might be considered a more quiet occasion. And I say “might,” as it was a premiere where people are photographed and are not sneaked in. She did not walk the red carpet, she did not preen. She wore a pretty dress. Would I have chosen this for the occasion? No. Am I offended? Also no. People came in ridiculous dress; torn jeans, ratty sweaters and some showed too much skin. Do we know if tis was her first choice of dress? Maybe she planned something else and hated how she looked. You ever been there? I have. For gosh sake’s, it’s just a dress at a movie premiere, not a funeral, memorial service or other sad occasion. Get a grip!

  14. Everyone can have an opinion on fashion. I do not understand Jackson’s incessant put downs on comments. If he/she has not realized this is a fashion blog and not fan site Jackson should rethink her stance.

    As for the Clooneys, they put themselves in the public light and the are receiving comments no different from other celebs. The commenting is rather tame.

    Using animal skins or fur should be abhord by many. It is needless, especially the fur trade on how these poor animals are kept. Fashion is moving away from fur. It is a shame more people do not see the light.

  15. I’m stunned by the comments made here about this movie along the lines of its not a movie about genocide, its a love story set in the middle of a genocide. Have you seen this film? Do you know anything about the Armenian genocide? Do you know anything about the care that the producers, and director of this film took in getting the details of the Armenian genocide correct, because of the ongoing denial of the Turkish government that it ever took place? The director himself has compared it to Schindler’s List. Sure, a dress with martini glasses complete with paper umbrellas – clink, lets celebrate – is the perfect choice for this event. And Amal is supposed to be a human rights advocate – not a reality show star.

    However, I am curious that it has been a month with no sightings of Amal. Has she gone into seclusion during the last few months of her pregnancy the way upper class women did in days gone by? Does she not want any pictures of her taken when she is very pregnant? Will we see her again only after she is once again slim and trim? Just asking.

  17. Its an odd, not to say retrograde, example to set for women – “pausing” out of sight for the last three months of your pregnancy. And she needs a whole wing of a hospital to give birth!? This sits rather poorly with her new found status as a human – and esp women’s – rights crusader. I can’t help but think about all those strong brave women living in desperate conditions around the world who work, look after their families, carry babies and give birth in terrible conditions. They will never see $588,000 in their entire lifetimes. To me they are the real heroes we should be celebrating and whose lives we should be honouring.

  18. As a mother of twins, I can definitely speak from experience that the last trimester was very uncomfortable. You are just really huge like a whale, don’t have a lot of energy because of the extra weight, and having two active foetuses moving, kicking and showing very pronounced hand/foot prints along your belly is surreal. I can imagine Amal going through the same experiences. I can understand why she hasn’t surfaced much these last few weeks. It sounds like they have the best care possible, so all should go well.

  19. Still anxiously awaiting for recent photos of Amal, but perhaps her doctor wants her off her feet for the remainder of her pregnancy to ensure less of a risk with twins, or maybe she chooses to rest comfortably out of the limelight & away from the public (??). Maybe she & George plan to release a family photo after the babies are born. Who knows, it’s anyone’s guess. Nonetheless, we will see them at some point in time. 🙂

  20. This behaviour of staying away hidden during the last trimester is completely abnormal. Doesn’t matter which way you want to look at the picture. If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, looks like a duck, it ain’t an ostrich.

  21. Amal and George have PR, just like any other celebrities. They hire or notify photographers/paparazzi for certain events, then select the photos that they want released to the public. It’s all very calculated and is a form of marketing. All celebrities rely on these photos to help boost their image to the public – otherwise, no one would know anything about them, and the public would cease to care about them. The definition of celebrity *is* having an instantly recognizable presence in public. Some of the released photos are “intimate,” to help cultivate some sense of familiarity with the public, so that people can “identify” with the celebrities (although that’s not really possible, because most people aren’t as wealthy or capable of living the same lifestyles as celebrities). At other moments, there may be paparazzi/event photographers already waiting for them – for instance at red carpet events, etc., to boost the profile of the event. Think about it this way: if no one famous was photographed at Cannes, the public wouldn’t be aware of the event, and Cannes would just be another film festival, of which there are 100’s around the world, I’m sure. So, event planners at Cannes pay photographers to show up and do their thing.

    I’m not really a fan of this PR/marketing – just pointing out how it works. There was a calculated effort to boost Amal’s image after her marriage to George, to help her gain more/new clients. Not really sure how that will pay off. If she had married someone wealthy who valued his privacy, then the PR campaign for her work simply wouldn’t be possible.

    On another note: not a fan of the print on this dress (just not my style), but to each her own. I do agree that the cocktail print is a bit silly for the premier of a movie that has a serious historical context.
