Amal Clooney has just landed her very first Vogue cover, the wife of actor George Clooney graces the cover of the magazine’s May issue.
Photographed by Annie Leibovitz in an eight-page spread the human rights activist is seen on the cover of the fashion bible looking radiant and sophisticated wearing a fuchsia Alexander McQueen top perfectly paired with matching Cartier drop earrings.
In the interview, the celebrated mother-of-twins gushed about her handsome husband describing falling in love with him as “the most natural thing in the world”. Before meeting Clooney at the age of 35, Amal admits she was never really excited about starting a family or even getting married. However, once she allowed herself to get to know the handsome bachelor she became elated to have someone like him be part of her forever story.
She also goes into detail on how beneficial she thinks the #Metoo movement has been in allowing women to freely share their stories with others while knowing they are not alone:
“I think because of the brave women who have come forward to tell their stories, the future workplace will be safer for my daughter than it was for people of my generation,” she said. We’re in a situation where a predator feels less safe and a professional woman feels more-safe, and that’s where we need to be.”
Additionally, the mother-of-two took the platform to share her thoughts on gun violence,
“I’ve seen lots of commentary where people have tried to say, ‘This isn’t about having too many guns or allowing semiautomatic and automatic weapons to be purchased too easily — surely this is about mental health, or about violence and movies. The fact is, there are violent movies all over the world, and there are mental health issues in other countries. But this doesn’t happen in other developed countries. The difference is guns, and how widely and easily available they are.”
Amal will be co-hosting the Met Gala next month alongside, Rihanna, Anna Wintour, and Donatella Versace. According to Wintour’s Editor’s Letter, this year’s event titled Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination will be the largest Costume Institution show to date.
This may be Amal’s very first cover, but the beautiful activist has made her own mark on Vogue with a candid interview that was almost too good to put down.
