Amal Clooney might be taking some fashion inspiration from The Duchess of Cambridge!
The Lebanese-British lawyer was spotted wearing a printed dress by Alexander McQueen during the Refugee Summit at the United Nations headquarters in New York City on Tuesday, Sept. 20, according to Entertainment Tonight. Amal was accompanied to the event by husband George Clooney.
Amal’s frock appeared to be very similar to the one worn by the Duchess at Wimbledon on July 10. They were not the exactly the same as the two McQueen creations were made in slightly different styles. Amal’s dress featured a button-down front and lapels, while Catherine's was of a more classic design. However, both dresses did feature the same print, which consisted of butterflies, lipstick marks, gem stones and skulls.

Meanwhile, the human rights lawyer and her Oscar-winning husband have recently taken Amal’s newest client, Nadia, into the care of their own home. Amal revealed on NBC's "Today" show that Nadia had been only 19 years old when she was captured by ISIS and forced to be a sex slave.
Nadia said that the members of ISIS had murdered most of her family members, including her mother and six of her eight brothers, when they invaded her northern Iraq hometown during the Yazidi genocide.
“I would hope that more could be taken in,” Amal told Channel 4 News (via Daily Mail), alongside her client Nadia, on Tuesday. “There has been one Yazidi family that has been given asylum so far in the UK. You have had a million refugees accepted in Germany in the last year and 70,000 of those have been Yazidis. In every other country it's been literally a handful, so I'm hoping that can improve.”
“That is something that my husband and I are doing in the US, for example, with the International Rescue Committees. If the Government disappoints then at least they should empower you to make a difference,” she continued.
