George Clooney dines out with Amal and her family in New York

hellomagazine.com

George Clooney had some very special guests visiting this week – his wife Amal's family. To celebrate their arrival Stateside, George took his in-laws out for a sophisticated dinner on Tuesday night.

The actor and his wife were spotted heading out to Caravaggio, a high-end Italian eatery on New York's Upper East Side, with Amal's parents and sister Tala.

Ever the gentleman, George protectively linked arms with his mother-in-law Baria as they made their way into the restaurant, striding past photographers outside.

The 53-year-old heart-throb was looking as dapper as ever, wearing a navy dinner jacked paired with more casual jeans. His wife Amal, 37, cut an equally chic figure, opting to wear one of her favourite designers Alexander McQueen.

The Beirut-born beauty showed off her svelte figure and enviable legs in a black and red floral-printed dress – not dissimilar to the striking red Alexander McQueen number she wore at her wedding rehearsal dinner in Venice last September.

Amal added height to her statuesque figure with a pair of black lace-up Giambattista Valli sandals, incidentally the same designer she chose for her first post-wedding appearance last year.

The lawyer's mum Baria seemed to have taken a leaf out of her daughter's book and was dressed in an equally fabulous get-up. The Alamuddin matriarch looked glamorous in a gold jacket that featured black embroidered lace, which she paired with black satin trousers.

Her other beautiful daughter Tala, who acted as a bridesmaid at Amal's wedding, also attended the family night out, wearing a pale grey wrap-around dress and knee-high leather boots, while Amal's dad Ramzi was also pictured at the dinner.

Tala Alamuddin also flew to New York for the family holiday to visit Amal

Amal, who is normally based in London where she works as a barrister for Doughty Street Chambers, has been in New York for the past few weeks.

The accomplished high-flier joined Columbia Law School for the spring semester as a visiting faculty member and as a senior fellow with the law school's Human Rights Institute. Her new position will likely last until 15 May.

George, meanwhile, has been filming his new movie Money Monster in nearby Long Island, alongside Julia Roberts and Dominic West. The handsome star plays financial TV personality Lee Gates, who is held hostage by a viewer who has lost all of his money following a bad tip from Lee on his show.
