10 REASONS WHY WE LOVE AMAL CLOONEY

Amal Clooney
10 reasons Why we love her ?
 
1.- She’s seriously smart. She was granted a rare scholarship to St. Hughes College at Oxford and won a number of prestigious awards before attending law school at NYU.
 
2.- She’s worldly. Fluent in English, French and Arabic, the jet-setting lawyer – who was born in Beirut, raised in London and studied in New York – has travelled all over the world. Her favourite city? Venice, Rome, where she met and married George.
 
3.- She’s a do-gooder. She’s been working tirelessly to have Canadian-Egyptian Al-Jazeera journalist Mohamed Fahmy released from prison, and most recently began work on the recognition of the Armenian genocide. She also led female campaigners "to discuss how to drive forward international action to protect children in conflict zones from rape and sexual violence” as part of the June 2014 Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict (co-chaired by Angelina Jolie).
 
4.-She’s ambitious. Amal has done work for the United Nations, heads of states and ambassadors. She’s so busy, in fact, that when the in-demand laywer was selected for a three-person U.N. commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza Strip, she had to politely decline. “I am honoured to have received the offer, but given existing commitments — including eight ongoing cases — unfortunately could not accept this role,” she said.
 
5.- Celebrities are in awe of her. When a reporter told Anne Hathaway she bore a resemblance to Amal, the Oscar-winning actress couldn't help but gush. “I’ve never heard that, but thank you,” the 32-year-old star replied. “That’s so going to be the best thing that happens to me today,” adding, “I hope that one day I become half the woman she is, she is so accomplished and it’s so thrilling to look at someone and say, ‘Wow, you’re really making the world a better place.’”
 
6.-She’s got a wicked sense of humour. Amal was representing Armenia in a high-profile genocide case last month, where she humorously fielded questions about her fashion choices with grace and charm. Appearing in the European Court of Human Rights, Amal was asked by a journalist which designers she was wearing for the appearance. “I’m wearing Ede and Ravenscroft!” she joked, pointing to her legal robes and referring to the company that created them.
 
7.- She puts family first. After getting mom Baria Alamuddin’s blessing, it was important for Amal to include her family in her special day as much as possible. Who can forget the photo of sister Tala jumping for joy in her dressing gown after seeing her beautiful sibling for the first time in her Oscar de la Renta wedding gown? Tala's 12-year-old daughter, Mia Hamiyeh, even played the starring role of flower girl in her aunt's nuptials, while the ring-bearers were Amal's six-year-old twin nephews.
 
8.- She’s incredibly well dressed. Hairstylist to the stars Danilo, who did Amal's hair for the Golden Globes, said, "She's an incredible person and an incredible woman – and she styles herself."
 
9.- She’s not an attention seeker. Despite having wed one of the world’s biggest stars – and the intense demand for all things Amal – the hardworking lawyer has yet to do a celebrity interview or pose for a magazine photo shoot or fashion campaign. Though It’s rumoured that Anna Wintour is poaching her for a 'Vogue' cover, it seems Amal is keen to stay focused on what’s important to her – her law career.
 
10.- On her off days, however, the 37-year-old stunner is always impeccably dressed, sporting designers like Prada, Oscar de la Renta and Dior. Yet, despite her fashionable appearance, Amal doesn’t employ a stylist. Rather, she personalizes her glamorous outfits with oversized sunglasses, funky shoes and, on one particularly notable red carpet, opera-length white gloves.
