STYLE ICON: Amal Alamuddin Clooney

A NEW STYLE ICON HAD EMERGED: I was hesitant to give Amal Alamuddin Clooney a “style icon” title when I honestly hadn’t heard of her until recently when she represented Julian Assange from Wikileaks, and then became George Clooney’s fiancée (now wife – see photos from the wedding).

And I was worried that the label might be somehow demeaning considering her incredible credentials as a human rights barrister.

The website thebusinesswomanmedia.com said is best with, “Internationally acclaimed barrister Amal Alamuddin marries an actor”. Nicely done, Amanda Rose and your businesswomanmedia team, nicely done.

So, our congratulations to actor/director George Clooney on marrying the exceptional human rights lawyer, Amal Alamuddin – you’ve done well for yourself, George, and we only hope that Amal doesn’t get stuck with too many “the wife of George Clooney” comments in the future and continues to be recognised for her own achievements.

We wish you both the very best for a fabulous partnership.
