In all the frenzy surrounding Amal Clooney’s amazing style (she rocks red carpets, looks amazing at the airport and oh, who can forget her couture-clad wedding weekend?) it can be easy to forget that she has a pretty badass full-time job that has nothing to do with being photo-ready at all moments.

A reporter from the U.K.’s Telegraph joked that the paparazzi expected her to turn up in Versace and wondered what she made of all the style speculation.
