Proving you can eat your cake, and have the man, too, Amal Clooney is a shining example of bread-winning women at their finest.
A bad-ass barrister, activist, author and fashion authority, the internationally celebrated human-rights powerhouse cultivated her own presence on and off the red carpet - long before she became smitten with Hollywood's most eligible bachelor.
Always modest, always fierce, the British-Lebanese beauty never misses the mark, whether she's rubbing shoulders with the Pope or hanging out with her beau at Lake Como, Amal (née Alamuddin) seamlessly strikes a balance between playful and professional.
Known for her vintage-inspired two-piece suits and stunning red carpet allure, Mrs Clooney is quickly becoming a fashion ambassador for the increasingly influential over 40's fan club.
Kicking ass and taking names with a stern courtroom confidence, Amal's work week wardrobe puts her contemporaries to shame. Providing us with endless style ideas from her personally curated collection of bold looks, we couldn't think of anyone more inspirational to join our VAUGHAN hall of fame...
All bark and no bite, this power-hungry blend of modest separates and tropical snakeskin gives new meaning to veracious summer style. The perfect pairing of contemporary and comfortable, this classic two-piece combination defines workwear perfection.
Using this zesty burnt sienna shirt as a sartorial cue, we have matched the same style using our similar VAUGHAN Hepburn shirt in an exotic 'Keeper of the Flame' orange. Beautifully offset against the cool nude undertones of this camel pencil skirt, traditional silhouettes are re-defined with a modern twist thanks to the stylish light leather design that easily contrasts our VAUGHAN soft silk blouse.
Worn with updated accessories that prove Amal's fashion gravitas, subtle hints of Python leather give a slightly seductive edge to this sophisticated chic ensemble.
Championing the 9-5 stiletto, these killer pointed toe heels prove just who's boss – whilst the matching snakeskin belt gently cinches the waist for a shapely silhouette. Shelving the boring briefcase in lieu of a far more stylish sidekick, the city tote is given a fresh new function. Big enough to store gadgets and gizmos aplenty (plus some lippy), an oversized leather handbag effortlessly accentuates your business standing – and where you're at on the company ladder, too! Topped off with a pair of camera-shy tinted sunglasses, this super-sleek look is a timeless, ageless and confident outfit for any discerning belle of the boardroom!
