Amal Alamuddin, a 36 year old London-based dual-qualified English barrister and New York litigation attorney who has long been a high-profile figure in international refugee and human rights law has gone against the trend for professional women in her field and married… an actor.
This is how the website The Business Woman Media starts off its post about “internationally acclaimed barrister” Amal Alamuddin’s wedding to an actor by the name of George Clooney this weekend. Much hullabaloo has been made about the notorious bachelor finally settling down, as if his bride has struck gold, but let’s face it, with her many degrees, fluency in multiple languages, and an impressive career in international law, Alamuddin could easily be described as out of Clooney’s league. Kudos to The Business Woman Media for flipping the script on the way celeb weddings are typically reported. Oh, and of course, congratulations to Mrs. and Mr. Alamuddin on their nuptials!
