When it comes to the working woman I have to sat that Amal Clooney is kinda the ultimate style icon. She knows how to dominate style while still maintaining a very professional presentation. She has worn some really great looks to lobby for human rights at the United Nations, White House, US Congress, British Parliament, and more wearing some of the hottest off the runway looks and the best vintage money can buy. While some of my recent wishes for her to walk the red carpet as George Clooney’s plus one for his movie premieres, but I know that she is so much more than that. Instead of picking gorgeous gowns for Amal to wear on a red carpet I decided to instead pick off the runway (and some great vintage) for her to wear while she is running around the world advocating for women’s and human rights. Kicking off my wishes for Amal I would love to see her wearing this amazing red Brandon Maxwell Spring 2018 RTW dress which features a rounded mock neck, ribbed construction, and a pleated dropped hem. This dress is classic in its shape and a but wow in it’s color. Amal is never one to shy away from hiding behind black and beige like many in the corporate tend to do. I didn’t tone down the red in the styling either I went to a great red vintage Chanel tweed double breasted blazer, a vintage red Hermes ‘White Bass Up’ tote bag and keeping the red theme going with Jimmy Choo ‘Vanessa’ pumps and a pair of oversized red Gucci round sunglasses to really pull this look together perfectly.None of the rest of my wishes for Amal to wear in her business style are anywhere near as bold as the red look I started out with. The look that actually inspired me to put this list together was this pale yellow Georges Hobeika Sprig 2018 RTW ensemble which features a blouson short sleeve button down paired with a pair of high waisted, wide leg pants and I think that it is definitely something that has the potential to be a really major moment. I think that moment would be elevated even further with a pale yellow wood tweed Chanel bag, a pair of nude Aquazzura ‘Forever Marilyn’ suede pumps, and a pair of big gold tone Elie Saab crystal-embellished round frame sunglasses.
Amal is the queen of amazing vintage and her go to retailer tends to be William Vintage. The store has some amazing pieces in their archive and I had a blast scouring their website for some of those amazing pieces to pick for Amal to add into her wardrobe. This vintage Hardey Amies grey ‘Prince of Wales’ check suit which features a long sleeved jacket that has a double lapel collar and ties at the front and a short sleeved dress that features decorative buttons to front and inset pockets on the hip screamed Amal’s smart, strong business glamour and I can definitely see her picking this suit to spend a day at the United Nations at hearings. Adding a black and green Prada ‘Esplanade’ tote and a pair of black Malone Souliers ‘Saide’ t-bar pumps all would make this another great moment for Amal.
Sometimes Amal takes a more casual vibe during some of her more relaxed meetings and I think that she would definitely make this white cold shoulder draped Grey Jason Wu Spring 2017 RTW dress would be a perfect choice for her to wear. A simple white dress like this is a perfect canvas for some great accessories and I think that a nude Bottega Veneta ‘Mini Montebello’ multicolored meadow flower embroidered bag and a pair of pink Jimmy Choo ‘Saga’ suede flame cutout pumps would be the perfect pieced to elevate this look.
Like I said earlier Amal is the queen of vintage and I love seeing her wearing great vintage. When I saw this Lanvin ensemble form 1967 that features constructed in cotton and featuring an abstract print in shades of green, navy blue and red, this skirt suit will look great worn as a coordinating set or split for easy-to-wear separates. The sleeveless top features splits to the sides and decorative pockets to the front, while pieces fasten to the front with buttons and a leather belt sits on waist of the skirt. The look is a very chic and when paired with a black Gucci ‘Sylvie’ leather top handle bag, a pair of black Nicholas Kirkwood ‘Maeva’ pearl pumps, and a pair of tortoise Max Mara ‘Anita’ Sunglasses it will be totally perfect.
The final look that I have picked for Amal is this great tan Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2018 RTW suit which is made up of a short sleeve linen blazer and matching wide leg pants. This is one of those runway looks that I really want to see worn, but save from Amal I don’t think there are many stars who will wear this look. Adding a cream Salvatore Ferragamo cotton-blend v-neck blouse, a mocha Salvatore Ferragamo ‘Beky’ tote, gold Salvatore Ferragamo ‘Flower Heel’ pumps, a pair of brown acetate Salvatore Ferragamo ‘Signature’ sunglasses, and a statement gold Oscar de la Renta twisted ribbon necklace all would ensure that this is just another major style moment for Amal.
