Back to business!
Amal Alamuddin held a press conference in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, April 30, calling for the release of the imprisoned former President of the Maldives, Mohamed Nasheed. Ever the professional, the international human rights lawyer chose a sleek ensemble to match the seriousness of the day.
Alamuddin, 37, who tied the knot with George Clooney this past September, took the podium in a navy blue suit, white shirt, and blue suede heels. She finished the look with a dainty pair of pearl drop earrings. (Later, the London-based barrister carried a white leather tote, complete with a printed scarf tied to one handle.)
Alamuddin's latest client, Nasheed, was the Maldives' first democratically elected leader, voted into power in 2008. But last month, the former president, who was ousted from his position in 2012, was accused of wrongfully detaining a judge using the Maldivian military. He has been sentenced to 13 years in prison.
"We will not rest until [the] ruling Abdulla Yameen government has released the former president," she told the assembled press.
