Looking every inch a Hollywood princess, Amal Clooney wowed the crowds and won plaudits from fashion commentators as she made her debut at the Golden Globes ceremony with husband George Clooney. The British barrister looked flawless in a midnight black gown as she swept down the red carpet.
The asymmetrical number was by Dior, and featured an elegant long train, which flowed down from one shoulder.
It was the red carpet appearance that everyone was talking about: George and Amal Clooney's Globes debut
"As long as she doesn't get the train stepped on, I've succeeded," George told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet.
Completing the look was a pair of over-the-elbow white gloves, and adding extra sparkle was a pair of magnificent cascading deel diamond drop earrings by Harry Winstone. The 29.62 carat stunners were set in platinum.
Amal and George's appearance was their first of 2015 and their most high-profile one to date. Amal, 36, was supporting her man – who was due to pick up the Cecil B DeMille award from his good friend and former ER co-star, Julianna Margulies.
When asked what it was like to come from the world of law and be thrown in the midst of Hollywood at the ceremony, Amal said: "I'm excited to be here". She added: "I'm just very proud of the award my husband has received tonight."
George looked as dapper as ever in a tuxedo which bore an accessory which proved to be a talking point. The star had pinned on a "Je suis Charlie" badge in recognition of the tradegy that happened in Paris last week. Amal had the emblem, which is French for "I am Charlie", on her clutch bag.
The slogan honours the Charlie Hebdo newspaper, which was attacked by armed gunmen who killed several empoyees. It fast became one of the most widely-used hastags on Twitter.
The couple's last red carpet event was in September when they attended the Celebrity Fight Night in Italy which benefitted the Andrea Bocelli Foundation and the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center Gala.
