Channel her style: Evening dresses for Amal Clooney

Educated, elegant and polished are just three reasons to admire Amal Clooney. An international human rights lawyer based in London, she splashed onto the world paparazzi circuit in April, 2014, when her engagement to George Clooney was announced.

In addition to juggling a variety of complicated legal cases, Amal's recognition as style icon requires a fabulous selection of evening gowns. From what we've seen so far, vintage Hollywood glamour and large scale florals are frequent choices for this trilingual intelligent trend setter.

Lace and a body conscious cut recall vintage sophistication in this black evening dress. With a dash of sequins and a long thigh slit, spend just under $100 on this formal dress, which is available in a rainbow of colors.
