Amal Clooney is very good at her day job as a human rights lawyer, but when the sun sets, she displays a different skill set: making totally unexpected outfits look incredible for date night. She’s worn lacy red lingerie out to dinner, paired daisy dukes with leather leggings, and now made a short romper—not a jumpsuit—work for a fancy dinner.
Amal stepped out with her husband George Clooney for his birthday dinner Sunday night at N.Y.C. hotspot Locanda Verde wearing a navy blue satin romper that made her toned legs look to be about four miles long. While shorts don’t typically scream “date night,” it’s what she paired with the romper that made the difference.
The 40-year-old accessorized with a dressy gold belt, matching box clutch (shop similar here) and beige Jimmy Choo heels ($895; net-a-porter.com). Statement earrings, a bold lip, and her signature blowout made the look nighttime-appropriate. Even George got the memo, color-coordinating in a navy suit and matching button-down to celebrate his 57th birthday.
This is sure to be not the only unexpected look we’ll see from Amal this week: The human rights lawyer is co-hosting Monday night’s Met Gala, meaning we’re sure to get another show-stopping red carpet look from the mom-of-two. Plus the theme, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” means Amal’s ensemble won’t be your average gown. Keep your eyes peeled.
