Amal Clooney's red lipstick is always on point and, coupled with her perfectly coiffed tresses and sparkly dress, is a lesson in timeless elegance.
Recently Amal Clooney opened up about her marriage to actor George Clooney - which was a rare occurrence for the usually private working mum. However, you don't need to look any further than the loved-up couple's public appearances to see just how smitten they are. A prime example is their most recent outing, which saw George being honored at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
His glamorous plus one, chic human rights lawyer Amal, stunned all in attendance on the red carpet at the 45th Kennedy Center Honors in Washington D.C. on Sunday, December 5. Amal wore a floor-length Valentino gown, which sparkled like a chandelier with an off-the-shoulder neckline. Her thick luscious locks cascaded over her shoulders in all their rich brown glory and her sultry makeup look was to die for. Amal Clooney's wedding makeup shimmered just like her red carpet look, but her lipstick of choice pumped up the volume to high Hollywood glamour - which fitted the star-studded event.
The event, which is held annually, celebrates individuals in the performing arts for their lifetime of contributions to American culture. This year his fellow honorees included musicians U2, Gladys Knight, Amy Grant, and Tania León - making George the only actor in the bunch.
Per the Hollywood Reporter (opens in new tab), speaking ahead of the Kennedy Center show, George joked about being featured in this year's honors saying he was worried his tribute would be a bit more like a 'roast' rather than a tribute. Unsurprisingly, there were a few cheeky comments from his nearest and dearest, including actor Matt Damon.
Teasing his friend, with whom he's had a decades-long friendship, he told the story of how George once stole then-President Bill Clinton’s stationery and wrote notes to fellow actors on it.
Another actor pal, Julia Roberts, paid tribute to the star in a highly unusual way, by wearing a dress with his face plastered all over it, while Don Cheadle spoke with high praise for his philanthropic work.
However, it's the actor's father's tribute which shows that it was clear from a young age that the star wanted to make a difference in the world. One part of the tribute included a story about how George, at only 7 years old, reacted to the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968. Heartbroken by the loss of such an important figure in the American Civil Rights movement he gave his father all his toy guns.
President Joe Biden, who attended with his wife Jill Biden, also paid tribute to George's work on screen and his off-screen involvement with charitable interests. He referred to the actor's dedication to tackling violence, by supporting a gun control campaign led by the survivors of the Parkland school shooting as well as how he helped 9/11 victims’ families.
“He is unrelenting and undaunted,” said the President. “That is character in real life. And that is George Clooney.”
