This Is Why Amal Clooney Missed The Met Gala

Last night, Hollywood’s biggest A-listers ascended on the pink steps of the New York-based Metropolitan Museum of Art of the annual Met Gala, and there was one famous face that was noticeably missing: Amal Clooney.

Fans were speculating around the absence of the brunette beauty who was a co-chairperson for last year’s fundraising event, but the mother-of-twins popped up on a different red carpet all the way on the West coast.

The human rights lawyer was right by her hubby’s side, at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California, walking the red carpet to celebrate his new work Catch 22, a satirical dark comedy miniseries based on the novel of the same name by Joseph Heller.

The British-Lebanese lawyer wore an Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2019 silk taffeta cocktail dress with a one-shouldered bow detailing at the movie premiere.
As always, Amal styled her look perfectly with a black clutch and matching pointed pumps. She wore her hair in loose waves down one side of her face and kept her make-up natural.

The power couple, who are parents to twins, Alexander and Ella, one, have been busy packing birthday celebrations, date night and a work event into one weekend. The duo celebrated George’s 58th birthday on the 6 – the same day that Meghan and Harry announced the arrival of the royal baby.
