    Amal Clooney Had A Perfect Response To A Question About Her Fashion Choices

    It's almost like she's not interested.

    So Amal Clooney is currently representing Armenia in the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).

    She's taken up the country's case against Doğu Perinçek, the leader of the Turkish Workers Party.

    In 2008 he was fined by a court in Switzerland of denying the Armenian genocide of 1915. Switzerland is the first country to criminalise denial of the event.

    As a result of this ruling, Perinçek appealed to the ECHR, which found that his freedom of expression had been breached.

    Clooney is now acting for Armenia as the country challenges the appeal. It feels that Perinçek's words can be compared to Holocaust denial.

    Anyway, on her way to the trial she was spotted at an airport wearing A RED COAT.

    And this was deemed hugely important by the media.

    And today The Telegraph's Brussels correspondent asked her about her fashion choices, whereupon she gave this unimproveable reply.

    I ask Amal Clooney about the fashion speculation. She laughed & pointed to her robes, "I'm wearing Ede & Ravenscroft"
