Say you’re Amal Alamuddin-Clooney. We know you’re not, but imagine for a second that you are.
You’re defending Armenia because the Turkish Workers Party leader, Doğu Perinçek, is denying the Armenian Genocide. After a long day working as an esteemed lawyer, you just want to take off your legal vestment, curl up with your husband George Clooney, and unwind before what is most likely another long day in the courtroom.
But on your way out, instead of being asked about the case, a reporter from the Telegraph asks you about your style and your fashion choices. What do you do?
Well, because Amal is smart and graceful, she laughed. And why wouldn’t you? You’re literally defending the reality of Armenian Genocide, so what do dresses, shoes and purses matter? They don’t, so Amal jokingly remarked, “I’m wearing Ede & Ravenscroft,” a company that makes her robe (her actual work uniform, which everyone wears).
And that’s how Amal drops a mic. It’s the Alamuddin-Clooney equivalent of Bye Felicia.
