Despite Dakota Johnson landing her first ever US Vogue cover – she will be fronting the fashion bible this February, the month her blockbuster Fifty Shades of Grey hits cinemas – all talk is on the rumours circulating about a certain human rights lawyer fronting the magazine herself.
Since Anna WIntour attended the Clooneys’ Venetian wedding last September, speculation has been rife that Amal has agreed to an interview and cover shoot with the magazine. After appearing in American Vogue in a shot taken by Annie Leibovitz during her wedding dress fitting, we would seriously like to see Amal take a bigger role in an issue – and of course gain a little insight into what life as George Clooney’s wife is like. Basically, we really want it to happen so here are the five reasons why we really hope that the rumours are true:
1. She is the ultimate workwear inspiration. As a seriously important lady, Amal has mastered how to look amazing in the office. From Chanel twinsets to smart summer dresses, she has brought the catwalk to the courtroom. Ladies, take note.
2 Because she more than holds her own on the red carpet. Rising to the challenge and looking at home mingling with Hollywood starlets who have been styling their ballgowns for years, Amal’s appearance at The Golden Globes proved that she is a red carpet knockout as well. With that classic Audrey Hepburn style and unbelievable mane, Amal has us seriously excited for her next award show appearance.
3 Amal has gone far and wide with her choice of designers. From her Oscar de la Renta wedding gown to wearing the likes of Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen, Giambattista Valli and Dior Haute Couture, this lady likes to branch out, take risks and certainly won’t be sticking to one brand only.
4 She is intelligent, succesful and politically savvy. From her inspiring career to her subtle ‘Je suis Charlie’ protest on the red carpet, we can’t think of anyone better for young girls to look up to.
5. It would add further evidence that Anna WIntour is in keeping with the fashion times. From contraversially putting Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on the cover last year, the Vogue matriarch proved that her magazine is not stuffy or stuck in the past. The presence of Amal would only prove to strengthen the brand.
