Lebanese British human rights lawyer Amal Clooney this week wore a glittering gown as she attended The Fashion Awards 2023 in London.
The 45-year-old philanthropist wore a head-turning bronze-and-gold Atelier Versace gown that was covered in circular metallic paillettes. She had her hair down and opted for voluminous waves. For the accessories, she donned Cartier jewelry.
The event, which took place at London’s Royal Albert Hall, was also attended by Danish model Mona Tougaard, who is of Turkish, Somali and Ethiopian descent.
She wore a sheer white dress from Maison Alaia’s Spring/Summer 2023 ready-to-wear collection.
Meanwhile, US singer and TV presenter Ashley Roberts stepped out in a fully sequined floor-length gown from Lebanese couturier Georges Hobeika’s Fall/Winter 2023 ready-to-wear collection. The color palette of the dress ranged from deep black to vibrant shades of purple, blue and green.
The fashion event honors industry leaders and young creative talent.
