Amal Clooney Offers Masterclass In Shutting Down Stupid Fashion Questions

Picture this: you're Amal Clooney, an internationally-renowned human rights lawyer.

You're representing Armenia in the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in a case involving denial of the 1915 genocide, in which an estimated 1.5 million people were killed.

Turkish politician Doğu Perinçek had been found guilty by a Swiss court in 2008 of denying the genocide, but he appealed to the ECHR, which said that his rights to free expression had been violated.

Clooney is now representing Armenia in a challenge of Perinçek's appeal, and she was in court on Wednesday.

In the midst of working this case, Clooney was asked by a reporter what she thinks about all the talk surrounding her fashion sense, Elle reported.

Many people might balk at such a question. But Clooney handled it like a boss.

When asked who she was wearing, Amal replied, "I'm wearing Ede & Ravenscroft."

Ede and Ravenscroft, by the way, is a London-based tailor that produces robes for courts, academia and ceremonial occasions.

Now if you'll excuse her, Clooney has an important human rights case to pursue.
