Instead of joining the star-studded crowd at the royal wedding of Britain's Princess Eugenie on Friday, Amal Clooney was busy leading a women's conference stateside, where she took a dig at President Donald Trump.
Clooney was the keystone speaker at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women where she took to the podium and criticized Trump for mocking Christine Blasey Ford, who testified before the Senate against Judge Brett Kavanaugh earlier this month.
'Survivors in any country deserve the chance to look their abusers in the eye and for history to record what has happened to them. That means the president of a country should not publicly ridicule a woman who courageously comes forward to allege abuse,' she said to the conference attendees.

'And it means the leader of the Senate should not assure constituents that he would "plow right through" her testimony,' she added taking to the podium hours after the Royal nuptials.  
On October 3 Trump mocked Ford during a campaign speech in Mississippi where he mimicked her inability to answer how she arrived and left the high school party where Kavanaugh allegedly sexually assaulted her.
'I had one beer. Well, do you think it was -- nope, it was one beer,' Trump said. 
'How did you get home? I don't remember. How'd you get there? I don't remember. Where is the place? I don't remember. How many years ago was it? I don't know,' he went on in his speech. 
In a hearing watched across the nation, Ford detailed the alleged sexual assault that took place the summer of 1982.  
Clooney, wearing sharp black button up dress and nude heels, criticized Trump for trivializing a survivor's account during her speech on Friday.

She also cited the #MeToo movement calling it 'a defining moment in the struggle for women's rights'.
'We are living through a moment of reckoning and a rebalancing of power. There is still much for us to do. Still, I am optimistic,' she said. 
While Amal was busy inspiring hundreds at the conference, her husband George Clooney was delivering a speech of his own at Variety's star-studded Power Of Women event in Los Angeles. 
There were 12,000 women attendants at the Pennsylvania conference - the largest of its kind in the tri-state area, according to Philadelphia Magazine
Guests listened to more than 100 speakers including Amal Clooney, Serena Williams, comedian Maysoon Zayid, CNBC panelist Nisa Amoils, and the National Women's Hockey League founder Dani Rylan. Last year former First Lady Michelle Obama notably spoke at the conference. 
Amal and husband George were on the coveted Royal wedding invite list but did not attend in order to speak at the conferences. 
Across the pond on Friday Princess Eugenie tied the knot with her tequila brand ambassador husband Jack Brooksbank at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle. 
Jack works for Casamigos tequila, which was founded by Clooney and Cindy Crawford's husband Rande Gerber.

Amal Clooney made a very stylish appearance at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women in Philadelphia today.
The lawyer may have kept her outfit to a minimal style but there is no doubt that she still made a glamorous picture in this black button-front sweater dress.
The trend for such a style has been seen all-over the high street this year, but this being Amal she’s opted for a designer version for the event.
She’s wearing a Paule Ka dress from the designers SS19 collection, which she has paired with a basic pair of nude peep-toe court shoes to balance out the midi length of the dress.
This exact look isn’t available to buy at the moment, but click (right) to shop the current collection at Harrods. Or, better still, browse our tantalizing edit below and steal Amal’s style no matter your budget. We’ve got our eyes on this on by New Look…

The lavish party thrown at the Royal Lodge, Windsor was said to include a drinks menu curated by the groom with free-flowing tequila from Casamigos.
Earlier this year Amal and George attended Eugenie's cousin Prince Harry's wedding to actress Meghan Markle. 
While George and Amal couldn't make it, around 850 guests did watch in the chapel as Eugenie, 28 - who is ninth in line to the throne - was given away by her father Prince Andrew. 
Among the guests were a host of celebrities, including Cara Delevingne, Ellie Goulding, Stephen Fry, James Blunt, Naomi Campbell, Tracey Emin, Pixie Geldof, Ricky Martin, Pippa Middleton, James Middleton, Demi Moore, Kate Moss, Liv Tyler, Jack Whitehall and Robbie Williams.
