Amal Clooney Proves You Don't Have To Dress Like A Student To Be One

Amal Clooney Proves You Don't Have To Dress Like A Student To Be One

Is Amal Clooney training to become a diplomat? If only our student wardrobes consisted of top-to-toe Gucci...

Amal Clooney may have found herself in the spotlight last year after tying the knot with Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney but aside from the occasional red carpet appearance, she's first and foremost a world-renowned Human Rights Lawyer.

Certainly no stranger to the United Nations and other high-profile summits, it now looks like Amal is ready to trade in her barrister garbs and take up a role as an official diplomat as she was spotted out and about in New York City clutching materials on NYU's new course, 'The Law and Practice of the UN: An Advanced Course for Diplomats', as she left the iconic Morandi restaurant in the West Village yesterday.

A tad confused? They're basically course notes that (as we read on the University's website): '...will focus on the Law and Practice of the United Nations. Developed with the UN mission of the United Arab Emirates, the programme will give UN diplomats an intensive briefing on the various legal issues that they may face at the UN.'

In short? It looks like Amal is set to hit the books again as a student! Wonder if she'll pop down the Union for a bevvy after a day of lectures? 

Amal's 'student' lifestyle couldn't be further from the one we lived through all those years ago. Instead of eating Pot Noodles on almost a daily basis and rocking up to classes in, well, whatever we could find on our bedroom floor she's heading out to the most prolific lunch-spots NYC has to offer, clad head-to-toe in Gucci no less...

Teaming her ring-binder with a £490 wool blend caramel hued skirt complete with a pleat to the front and a co-ordinating belt and a £575 silky tangerine shell top finished with an edgy python collar, this look is more in-sync with the catwalk than it is the classroom. We don't know about you, but we're LOVING Amal's chic take on this season's huge '70s trend.

However, if your budget doesn't quite stretch to triple figures, we've found a more purse-friendly way to cash in on Amal's studious style.

Oh, and lets no forget that animal print collar...

Brains, beauty, a seriously handsome hubby and a designer wardrobe we'd kill to call our own — some girls have all the luck...
