Attending Columbia University is probably intimidating enough, let alone attending law school at Columbia. Then, on top of that, what if your professor walked in looking like this? Oh, my anxiety would practically be palpable. Amal Clooney started her teaching job at Columbia University on Tuesday, and didn't deviate at all from her ladylike chic style to step into her new shoes as professor. This is one class that I'm sure will have full attendance rates.
The 37-year-old human rights lawyer, who is teaching at Columbia this spring as a visiting lecturer, was photographed walking around campus in a white pencil skirt, matching top, and floral patterned Oscar de la Renta heels. With a long, cream-colored wool coat and a bright red bag, Amal looked just as effortlessly elegant as we've come to expect. It was the ideal blend of light and summery, but her coat kept her warm amidst New York City's far too prolonged winter. Clooney also wore large black sunglasses and a deep red lip, just to cement the chic factor. You know, in case it wasn't already drilled in.
As her new position is only just beginning, we'll hopefully be treated to lots more stylish ensembles to give us some workwear inspiration throughout the spring.
