Amal and George Clooney have had a busy week, jetting from one glitzy event to another, and of course, the lawyer looked immaculate at each occasion.

Earlier in the week the 45-year-old surprised fashion fans by making a departure from her usual feminine look, switching her pencil skirts and flowing gowns for a pair of tailored trousers, and on Thursday night she surprised once more by donning a far more sparkly gown than we're used to seeing the star in.

For a screening of George's new movie, The Boys In The Boat, Amal opted for an ultra-festive red paillette-covered dress, proving she's more than ready for party season. Embracing the metallic trend, Amal added shiny silver pointed heels and a glinting gold bag too. "Step aside sequins, because according to Amal Clooney, ‘tis the season of the paillette. Amal graced the event in ‘Look 13’ from 16 Arlington’s SS24 collection. Her festive ankle-length latex dress, adorned with red paillettes, pays homage to David Lynch's Lost Highway, echoing the theme seen throughout the entire collection," explains Hello! Fashion's Digital Editor Natalie Salmon

Amal Clooney looked incredible in red sequins

"Amal Clooney can’t stop wearing this fashion girl alternative to party season sequins. Following her surprise appearance at the Fashion Awards where she presented Charlotte Tilbury with a Special Recognition Award in a stunning paillette-covered Atelier Versace gown, the human rights lawyer, a clear lover of embellishments, has once again embraced the glamour of these metallic adornments in her fashion choices," says Natalie.

Leanne Bayley, HELLO's Director of Lifestyle and Commerce (and office magpie!) is a big fan of Amal's sparkles, "This might be one of Amal's best looks for me! You just can't beat red at Christmas time and this is such a festive look, made even more incredible with her glossy 'glazed donut latte' hair and her shiny metallic accessories. I am obsessed with all things sparkly, and every Sunday I share my favourite finds from the Internet, and Amal's dress WILL make the cut this week."

Leanne added, "The gold Versace number from the Fashion Awards was a red-carpet smash hit, and now this wow-worthy red dress - Amal, you're really spoiling us.

Amal pulled out all the stops for festive season

We were certainly excited to see Amal take centre stage with her dress at the Fashion Awards in London, especially after the star opted for a toned-down look on Sunday, with fashion expert Miranda Holder speculating on the star's style change.

"Amal's signature look is definitely the pencil skirt to show off her gazel-like proportions - which is why this trouser look came as a surprise to her many fashion followers."

"For me, the trousers felt more toned down than a pencil skirt. If her toned calves were indeed on display, it may perhaps have pulled focus from her husband, and it was his evening after all," Miranda continued.
