That's very Rihanna of you! Amal Clooney flashes a hint of her tummy in fashion forward outfit for an outing in New York

She's the picture of elegance both in the courtroom and on husband George Clooney's arm for Hollywood's biggest events.
But on Tuesday night Amal Clooney took a fashion forward step in New York with a daring outfit - and it paid off.
The 37-year-old was spotted in high-waisted (and very colourful) bell bottoms as she appeared to flash a hint of her tummy in a shaggy crop top.

Taking a leap: Amal Clooney took a fashion forward step in New York with a daring outfit - and it paid off - on Tuesday night

Completing her attire was a winter coat as she wore her dark locks down over her shoulders.
The gorgeous attorney carried a simple clutch and her cellphone for the outing. 
Meanwhile, Amal's work takes her all over the world where she argues for human rights.

In January Amal went before Europe's top human rights court to argue against a man convicted of denying the 1915 Armenian genocide.
Clooney was representing Armenia as part of an appeal before the Strasbourg-based European Court of Human Rights, which ruled in favor of the man, Dogu Perincek, in December 2013.
Perincek believes his right to free speech was violated when Swiss courts convicted him of racism for denying the genocide in 2005. He described the genocide as 'an international lie.'

Important work: Amal's activism takes her all over the world where she argues for human rights
Clooney said the 'most important error' of the court's 2013 ruling in favor of Perincek was that 'it cast doubt on the reality of the Armenian genocide.'
Historians estimate up to 1.5 million Armenians were killed by Ottoman Turks around the time of World War I, an event widely viewed by genocide scholars as the first genocide of the 20th century.

Turkey, however, denies the deaths constituted genocide, saying the toll has been inflated and that those killed were victims of civil war and unrest.
The court said its decision would be made at a later date.
Amal, who married actor George Clooney last year, has also argued on behalf of Greece for the return of the so-far unsuccessful campaign to reclaim the Parthenon Sculptures from Britain.

Given that Anna Wintour was a guest at their wedding (maybe it was she who introduced them), this article seems to skip over the likelihood of them probably meeting up for lunch in NYC while they're there

Nothing is happening to her fashion sense, she is being herself. She has never dressed conservative only when working. Other than that her style is loud and different. The pants remind me of the ones she wore in New York after their trip to Africa. I may not like everything she wear but I give her credit for wearing what she likes and feels good in.
I kind of like the pants and coat don't like the top.

This is an outfit that you either love it or you hate it.  Every outing by Amal that has been captured by the cameras gives us more insight into her style.  And her style runs the gamet of classic Audrey Hepburn to funky to edgy. We seem to be continuously surprised by her fashion choices.  She is definitely an interesting woman with very interesting style choices.  I give her lots of cred for that.  As long as she loves what she's wearing then fine. We aren't always going to love what she wears but she's not dressing for us.

Personally I don't like this outfit either.  Well, I like the coat very much.  But that's it.

Amal’s pants and George’s sleepovers

Amal Clooney stepped out for dinner in New York wearing a furry vest and a pair of very expressive pants. I love that she loves fashion. And there’s a little “I don’t give a sh-t” about the way she loves fashion too. She’d know that these trousers aren’t a safe choice.

Yesterday I posted photos of Amal with George leaving Patsy’s after dining there with his mother. Click here for a refresher. According to E! News, George wasn’t carbing that night and Amal doesn’t like tomatoes on her salad but she doesn’t mind them when they’re stewed in sauce. Also when George passed the restaurant’s cookbook to her, this was supposedly her reaction:

"Are you expecting me to cook? I don't cook!"

She’s handling human rights cases and writing legal briefs and researching. If she doesn’t want to cook, she doesn’t have to cook. It’s not like that’s part of the Clooney lifestyle anyway. I mean, eating is, for sure. And enjoying the food with some tequila. But their way is a lot more luxe. You want to know what that looks like?

Read the new Rande Gerber interview with the Evening Standard. Casamigos Tequila is coming to England. To promote the label, Gerber talked about how the tequila was conceived. Apparently they were just looking for good tequila and decided to make some themselves, for PERSONAL CONSUMPTION.

Can you imagine? Oh, let’s just put together some brand new tequila just so we can share it with our friends. Which they did. Only their friends wanted too much of it. So they decided to turn it into a bigger thing.

Gerber also reveals what it’s like to have George as a semi-permanent too-drunk-to-drive-home resident at his home. You know that Casamigos commercial when George ends up in bed with Cindy Crawford? It was based on a true story. One night he and Rande got so wasted they just crashed wherever and Cindy thought George was Rande and it ended up being a big joke.

There are also details here about their joint house in Mexico. How Rande and Cindy have to sleep on George’s side sometimes because their teenage kids end up taking over their place. There are teenagers living next to George Clooney.

WHY DON’T WE KNOW MORE ABOUT THIS?

Why didn’t I have kids 15 years ago so I could force them to be friends with these people?

Anyway, it’s a fascinating read. Rande is loyal so he doesn’t give up much that would compromise the Clooneys, but it’s enough of a teaser, enough of a glimpse behind the curtain, with several celebrity namechecks, to stroke your gossip boner. Click here to read. Thanks Sam!

Why don't i like her??

Lainey's observations in a previous article was so direct: She LOVES the attention.

As for this outfit, i agree she can wear whatever she wants. I'm just wondering why she looks professionally made up.

By the way I hope Amal does do an interview with Vogue or some other reputable media outlet.  She has to be aware of the curiosity surrounding her, not only about her fashion statements but her work as an international lawyer.  I think there are many, including us on COH who would love to know about her career and some of her personal interests.  She and George must know that Amal is a personality in her own right now and people want to know about her.  An interview might dispel a lot of misperceptions about her.

Ooh, there is definitely a Vogue cover in the making. Anna Wintour wouldn't settle for anything less.

I think a fashion spread or article in anything resembling a celebrity culture magazine would begin the documentation of Amal's devolution into a starlet. Right now, the only things bearable about her to me is her professional standing and the fact that she doesn't talk to the media except in relation to her work. Once she starts on the media personality path, I'm completely done, no matter how much I want to trust George's judgment.

And I'm wondering how far this would go before George starts thinking "This isn't what I signed up for when I married an international lawyer."

JMHO, of course. I know most of you would disagree.

I would just say that Vogue often does pieces on powerful and influential women.  Even Michelle Obama has been on the cover and done an interview for Vogue.  I think if Amal is smart and is doing a piece for Vogue it would focus on her rise as a barrister in international law in addition to her flare for fashion.  Amal has certainly had a positive impact on the fashion world and she should put her passion for fashion in perspective with what else is important in her life.  

I don't think she would do a fashion spread. I'm thinking it would be an introspective article on her as a person and possibly how life has changed for her since George.
Of course this all hinges on the idea that she's actually doing this.

You're probably right about Vogue. But I just think it would be overkill and come off as a publicity-seeking stunt. We already get photos of her wherever she goes, along with analysis of her outfits. Hell, there's apparently even a blog devoted to her attire and its cost. We know how her life has changed since George came into it. It's been well chronicled.

I think the more 'mystery' she manages to maintain, the better for both of them. Let people be interested. That interest doesn't have to be catered to by Amal. Unless, of course, she wants something entirely different for herself than being an inarguably  respected international lawyer.

We're on the same page Way 2.   I'm still trying to figure out how she became a celebrity ( a la Kardashian) and even being rumored to be a potential cover for Vogue.  WTF??? Then again, maybe he's selected the stylists for her.

I think the more she's out and about with George or on her own she raises questions. At this point her fashion is driving people's interest in her. She needs to put it perspective. If the interview is done right she's better off giving some insight into the person she really is and not let the media alone drive her story. All this mystery about her has led to a lot of negative opinions of her. Bottom line I guess Amal has to decide how she wants people to perceive her. Maybe she doesn't care.

PigPen Amal is a celebrity.  She became one by  marrying George and by being a high profile lawyer. And her fashion choices during her 3 day wedding cemented her celebrity.  She was known in international legal circles before G and had a positive reputation and now she's almost a household name.  Not Kardashian style. No.  Her high fashion style coupled with her job credentials I'm sure is the lure for a Vogue.

She can love the law, and she can love fashion. But I don't see the need to do an interview about it to "put it in perspective." Just be whatever the hell you are, and go about your business doing it. Everything doesn't need to be trumpeted in the media, no matter how prestigious the forum.

And I'm sure George has informed her that unless she has final approval over the copy, there is no controlling the story that gets printed. She may think the interview is "done right," but it could be a totally different story. Anna W would probably show her in a good light, but I think it's in her to do whatever it takes to sell a bunch of magazines.

Careful what you wish for...

It's really interesting that some of those making the negative assumptions about Amal here on COH feel she should NOT come out and talk about herself.  Better she remain a mystery.  A mystery that results in knocks against her with not much more than pictures to tell her story.  Because it's the pictures more than her work that seem to drive the conversation here.

If Amal chooses not to do any interviews fine.  And maybe she will make that decision based on the reasons made by Way2.  It will just keep the posters here with more to suppose about her, positive and negative.

  Haha, well then maybe she should do an interview with no pics? So perhaps Vogue wouldn't do it if that's the case, maybe some non-fashion magazine then

Look at it this way. If she is her own person who wears what she wants for no other reason than it's what she likes, and takes the cases that she does on the merits that she decides, then why would she do an interview to explain any of that? It's unnecessary. It is what it is. No perspective needed. Unless, as I said, there is another agenda.

I think the interview without pictures is a brilliant idea. Wonder who'd want to do that one. Not Vogue.

Perhaps she believes Vogue having a larger audience than say The National Law Journal or the European Law Journal might allow her to get her agenda across to more of the masses as opposed to the legal community.

Perhaps she wants to focus her comments on Armenian genocide, or some other topic where bringing a broader world-wide attention to the topic might help put pressure on say a government or help the cause.

Just a thought.

Re: That's very Rihanna of you! Amal Clooney flashes a hint of her tummy in fashion forward outfit for an outing in New York

Is it just my imagination or is the media beginning to talk about her more often as "George Clooney's wife" rather than "international human rights lawyer who happens to be married to George Clooney"?

The majority of the media has always been referring to her as "George Clooney's wife/fiancee/girlfriend", its not anything new. There was some pushback to that label here and there and some tongue in cheek articles titled "international human rights lawyer married Clooney" and stuff like that. But for the most part they've always classified her in relation to George as far as I've seen and heard.

 I totally get what you're saying, but none of that is any of her doing and it's not under her control.  She can't stop people from taking photos of her or writing about her.

 I think that's always been the case.  As far as the whole world (except for some lawyers in London) is concerned, marrying George is what she's famous for.

Whether we like it or not, marrying George has made Amal a celebrity in her own right.  We can bitch and moan about it, but it's a fact.  What she does, where she goes, what she wears, what she says are all going to be reported on.  That's not her fault: it's the nature of our celebrity obsessed culture.  If we weren't interested in looking at pictures of Amal and reading about her, the tabloids wouldn't be writing about her.  

I don't know whether this is relevant or not, but I have the statistics for this site, and can tell you that the most read threads on Clooney's Open House are ALL about his girlfriends.  Of the top 10 most read threads, not a single one is about George.  So we can wonder why she's become a celebrity but it's our own behaviour that's doing it.

This is nothing new.  This has been the case for all of George's girlfriends.  Perhaps it was possible a year ago for Amal never to have gone out in public with George and shied away from press and media, but the fact that none of his previous girlfriends have done that either suggests to me that George wants someone to stand by his side and share the glare of publicity with him.  We know that George calls the paps on occasions and we know that he eats out at restaurants where the paparazzi hang out so he's complicit in getting his publicity quota because he's also perfectly capable of going for weeks without being spotted when he so chooses.  Now he seems to have decided to bring his wife into the game.

Getting annoyed at his wife for 'loving the attention' may make us feel better, but maybe we should consider that none of this is happening without George noticing.

She does love showing off her new clothes. It's annoying i have to admit. Obviously George is very generous, and now that they're married what's his is hers etc, but whether he's aware of the full extent of all this i'm not sure, since we ourselves are speculating from what we see. She just seems to LOVE material things, and if she didn't have the job she does..well, i don't know how to articulate this further...basically she wouldn't be so quickly defended here, and would in fact be attacked the way poor Stacy Keibler was. But if George is fully aware then he's not the person i thought he was, and even that doesn't even matter that much to me.

I would add that i've seen several different footage of them both on the red carpet and out and about, and i've observed a few things..which i feel it's not time to comment on. Let things run their course and see what happens.

I completely agree with all of what you just said. You articulated it perfectly. All this talk about 'Amal being an attention-seeking monster and George is the helpless victim being duped by his evil wife' narrative that is being passed around is just tired. George is old hat at this game, he plays it better than anyone else in the biz....he's not some easily confused starlet. He knows fully well what is going on. And the paps would be following her around even if she didn't wear bright colors. Geez. It's part and parcel of being George's girl.

Yep. And they both understood they couldn't hide under a rock forever! George has articulated the understandable interest in his wife and everything she does - and because her world is pretty different and he's married her, double the interest.

One way to know if His Nibs has sanctioned photo-ops is to check Getty. Definitely some on there for the 'yellow coat stroll' but outlets had probably had an embargoed press release about the Aurora/Armenian Genocide event the next evening, so they were fair game. 

On that occasion everybody won.

Ok, but who doesn't?  Is there anyone here who loves clothes but doesn't enjoy wearing new items?

 Seriously, how could he not be?  He may not be into fashion, but he's dated enough women to notice new clothes coming into their home.

If you ask me (and I think I'm a minority on this), I think she is being attacked exactly the same way Stacy Keibler was.  And Elisabetta.  And Sarah Larson.  And all the rest before that. And I've no idea how many times I had to defend those women too.

 Now I'm curious!  Maybe not in this thread, but perhaps elsewhere you'd like to share your thoughts?

Katie - I agree. He has to know. Considering the minimal amount of closet space we get here in NY, either her clothes are piled up everywhere, or they've rented a second suite for her to use as a closet. Maybe that's why we see George wearing the same thing all the time - Amal is hogging all the closet space and there's no room for his clothes! Smile

Katidot thank you.  I soooo appreciate your objectivity on Amal.  And on this marriage.

You mentioned in your post earlier today which threads here get the biggest response and by far it's the girlfriends.  I was actually thinking about this last night and realized that the women in George's life are what drives the conversation, opinions and disagreements on COH.  Not to say that the other aspects of George's career and personal life don't interest us but it's the women who provoke by far the most controversy.  

There is no perfect woman who exists out there for George that his fans couldn't find fault with.

Can I just say, without upsetting anyone as it's just
my opinion.
I'm a long standing fan of George, 
since around 1995ish, ER time. I love his films and 
admire a lot about him as an individual.

I'm just happy for him that he's married his lady. flower

I happen to like Amal she has done nothing for me to dislike her. George loves her and he married her so that is good enough for me. I also see nothing wrong with her buying clothes if she wants them and can afford them why not. George is a grown man and knows who he wants in his life regardless of what fans who to be honest don't know him and are not close to him. I would like Amal no matter what her job I'm not impressed by degrees or titles she makes him happy and as a fan that is great to me. I also liked Sara and Stacy , Eli as well I would have been happy if he married any of them if it made him happy.

I feel the same way.  I'm sure posters here know I feel.  And like you said annemarie I would have been fine with whoever George might have married.  I think all these woman are basically nice and kind in their own ways.  And have a sense of humor!  I don't think George would have gotten involved with any of them if they didn't have some very basic qualities that he admires in women.

I am a voracious reader, and the only thing that keeps me from spending my entire paycheck in the Amazon Kindle store is the fact that I have to pay my rent and buy groceries.  I couldn't care less about fashion, but if I had both an extremely well-paying job AND were married to a multi-millionaire who was paying all the bills, I can guarantee I'd be neck-deep in books and having dinner with famous authors just to pick their brains. Good for Amal for enjoying herself, I'd do the exact same.  And since I was one of the Stacy critics, I'll say that the difference IMO is girlfriend vs. wife.  I don't expect my boyfriend to support me now, but I'd hope when we're married we have a "what's yours is mine" relationship. It's "for better or for worse" versus "international booty calls".

Those are some ugly-ass pants, but I love that she's still dressing as crazy as she was that first time we saw her in New York.  She's great at dressing appropriately for the occasion (another difference with Stacy), whether it's a business meeting, red carpet, or dinner with a fashion designer.

Missa
Clooney-love. And they said it wouldn't last
