George Clooney may have been guest of honour at the 100 LIVES initiative, but it was an event that held as much resonance with his lawyer wife Amal. The couple stepped out on Tuesday to attend the New York event, which was marking the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.
Amal, who specialises in human rights, international law, criminal law and extradition, scored high in the style stakes as she joined her husband for the poignant affair.
The Lebanese beauty flaunted her svelte figure in a quirky indigo dress, which featured sheer panels and embroidered cut out sides.
Amal, 37, proudly watched on as her husband George took to the stage to speak about the importance of getting involved with 100 LIVES. The initiative expresses gratitude to individuals and institutions who helped save Armenian lives by carrying out heroic deeds.
George reiterated the need to combat genocide and advance human rights – a topic his wife is familiar with – as he said: "We really want people to get involved with 100 LIVES, to celebrate those that overcome adversity and give back to others, just as the Armenian community is doing in this centenary year."
