Girl Crush: Amal Clooney

I haven't done a girl crush column in awhile... forgive me but I'm trying to be discriminating.

I think we can all agree that we're happy George Clooney got married. He's talented, handsome, debonair, and while he seemed to be a little old fashioned, he wasn't married. He seemed to be committed to being a bachelor (which was just silly). We all want him to pass those genes on. And now. AND NOW. Not only is he (hopefully) going to pass those genes on, he's upgraded them by marrying a superhuman, intelligent, well-spoken, fearless, inspiring, amazing, classy woman. I'm so impressed the more I hear about her--her humanitarian work, her drive, her ability to evade the spotlight while shining bright when it's on her. She's cut from the same cloth as Princess Diana--she's impressive, and I have a a girl crush.

Here's her elevator pitch courtesy of Wikipedia:
"Amal Ramzi Clooney[ (Arabicأمل علم الدين‎; born 3 February 1978) is a London-based British-Lebanese lawyer, activist, and author. She is a barrister at Doughty Street Chambersspecializing in international law, criminal law, human rights, and extradition. Her clients include Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, in his fight against extradition. She has also represented the former prime minister of Ukraine, Yulia Tymoshenko."

You can see her do her very impressive think here, when she's talking to the UN about prosecuting ISIS:

Posting any pictures of her in her fabulous outfits seems unfair after that, but I'll link to an article because her style, like the rest of her, is impeccable. 

What do you think? Are you on team Amal, too?
