Amal Clooney At Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony in Oslo for Nadia Murad 10.12.2018

Amal Clooney has taken her seat for the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony 2018.

Joining the Crown Prince and Princess of Norway, Clooney is present for the prestigious award at City Hall in Oslo, Norway.

Amal Clooney has a particular vested interest in the Nobel Peace Prize, being herself a barrister specialising in human rights and international law.

This year she famously spoke out in support of a previous Nobel Peace Prize winner, Iraqi Yazidi-Kurdish human rights activist Nadia Murad.

This year, the Nobel Peace Prize is jointly awarded to Congolese gynecologist, Denis Mukwege, responsible for treating thousands of rape victims, and Iraqi Yazidi Nadia Murad, an activist who survived sexual abuse by ISIS. They are both being recognized for their incredible efforts to end sexual violence, particularly when it’s used as a weapon of war.

Per CNN, Muwege, who started a hospital in the Democratic Republic of Congo, “has treated thousands of rape survivors who suffered traumatic injuries at the hands of warring militias.” Meanwhile, Murad, an Iraqi Yazidi human rights activist, is a survivor of sexual violence who was previously enslaved by Islamic State militants. She’s actually worked with Clooney in trying to make ISIS accountable for genocide of the Yazidi people.

In a statement released via Reuters, upon winning the Nobel Peace Prize, Murad said, “Persecution of minorities must end. Sexual violence against women must never be tolerated.”

For the ceremony today, Amal Clooney is wearing an Oscar De La Renta tweed shirt and skirt co-ord, which she’s paired with a nude suede heel by Jimmy Choo.

Amal has shown her support for Nobel Peace Prize winner and human rights activist Nadia Murad.

    1. She doesn’t wear the headphones to hear the translations so she doesn’t mess her hair. WTF why is his woman so vain? Ok she’s smart. She’s skinny and tall. But she’s not a Victoria Secrets model. She’s an average looking woman with lots of access to clothes, surgery etc.

  1. Nadia is such an inspiration! I feel so sad for her, for her loss. So wonderful that she’s doing something positive for the world in spite of all of her pain. Also, I like Amal’s suit. It looks like she had that slit in the skirt sewed up, which is appropriate (something I would do, too).

  2. Yes, Nadia is such a beacon of hope and possibility. An amazing celebration of her work. But, dear God, why must Amal intentionally wear such a bright loud color to bring herself to center-of-attention. Can’t she just let Nadia have her day to be the star? Ugh, what is wrong with her – the Cannes, the Royal Wedding… the list of goes on where she must be the star!

    2. Amal has always worn red, even before she met George she was often in red. I don’t care for this dress. The fit isn’t attractive neither on Amal nor on the model. However, I love red too and wear a lot of it. Even though red is often an attention grabber, I never really think of seeking attention when I wear it. While Amal loves attention. I don’t think she’s wearing red for this purpose. She just naturally loves the color red and it does suit her.

      1. I also like to wear red in all shades, but there is a motto for real style icons: ‘Dressed to the occasion’. Someone should acquaint Amal with it who, unfortunately, appears to be more of a fashion victim than a style icon.

        There is nothing wrong with wearing bright colours – if they fit the occasion. Which is not the case here – because she distracts from the most important person of the event, Nadia Murad.

        @Nati: i would have welcomed if you had not only covered Amal, but also Nadia. What brand is her gown?

      2. Yes Amal likes red, and wears it’s often, but I venture it’s because it’s attebtion-grabbing I like you … who just likes the color. The reason I say this is context – the way she acts coupled with her clothing choices is that one an attention-hoarder.

        Amal helps bring attention to causes … because she likes the attention. It’s all self-serving. But I suppose it’s better to have her name attached to a cause because at least her fame will bring celebrity to it. No attention is better than Amal attention.

    3. Yes, Nadia is humility and grace. I find it ironic, that Amal brought Nadia attention through her celebrity. But, actually Nadia has so much more poise and quiet confidence that Amal with her millions of dollars, flashy wardrobe and prancing showmanship … could really learn from.

      Why does Amal have to sit sideways to get even MORE attention? Amal is described as being so confident and self-assured. If so, why is she so needy of attention?

    4. agree, why does amal feel the need to always upstage people with her bright/loud clothing? If you look at the pictures most people were dressed in black/white/navy but there’s amal in siren red! ugh.

  3. The UN should have been advised to give this year‘s prize to Nadia for she deserves to be declared the citizen of the year due to the ordeal she had gone through, her courage to fight against the ISIS publicly, her seriousness and modesty! Or why wasn‘t it a journalist having been given the prize? Why Amal who only uses the stage and her appearance in public to hold speeches that do not change anything in the world and most of all to bring herself into the center of public attention by wearing highly expensive outfits and jewelry most of the time inappropriate for the occasion while smilingly speaking about oppression, sexual harrassment, crime. It must have cost George. a fortune to have her get the prize.

  4. I agree, wearing all red to a presentation like this was unacceptable. Amal was the only one wearing a bright colour. She stuck out a sore thumb. She just can’t let Nadia have her day. So shallow.

  5. Everyone was wearing dark neutral colors except Amal of course. She just can’t help it. And while she’s at it, taking so much care of her good looks, she should get an Invisalign treatment for her teeth.

    1. Andrea:
      I have a couple of thoughts re: your “Invisalign” comment. I think that culturally people have different thoughts about teeth. Americans will make comments about how bad the Brits’ teeth are and Europeans make comments about how white,straight the Americans’ are. Amal grew up in Great Britain and I suspect she may have that view…Having said that, I know a bit about cranial facial anomalies-which Amal has- and frankly, Amal clearly would need much more than Invisalign to improve her smile. She has a significantly recessed lower jaw. And others with a similar issue would have had either surgery or placement of a distraction device as teens to correct this problem. The lower jar would have been moved out and I think the lower arch expanded. Orthodontia (placement of metal bands on the teeth) would also have been required. This process takes years.This treatment has been available in the US for many years; a girl I went to high school with went thru this. It has to be done when growth is still taking place and that is why it’s done in the teen years. It’s hard emotionally for teens to go thru this. In any case, I wonder if we would be commenting on this for a man. I don’t think so because there is still a double standard for men and women. And, with Amal’s focus on fashion.appearance, I don’t think she is helping to change the perception of women as ornamental. Just my thoughts, no critique intended.

      1. This is a blog about Amal and, by its nature, invites diverse commentary. It’s not a blog about the readers so there is no reason to discuss “what should [we] all get?”
