- Amal Clooney has arrived at the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony 2018, which is taking place at City Hall in Oslo, Norway.
- The high-profile attorney arrived wearing a bright Oscar de la Renta belted tweed peplum jacket accentuated with a belt, and a matching skirt.
- This year, the Nobel Peace Prize is jointly awarded to Congolese gynecologist, Denis Mukwege, responsible for treating thousands of rape victims, and Iraqi Yazidi Nadia Murad, an activist who survived sexual abuse by ISIS. They are both being recognized for their incredible efforts to end sexual violence, particularly when it’s used as a weapon of war.
High-profile human rights lawyer Amal Clooney attended the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize ceremony at City Hall in Oslo, Norway today. She stepped out to support joint awardees, Denis Mukwege and Nadia Murad, both of whom work towards ending sexual violence as a weapon of war.
Clooney opted for a “bright and bold tweed co-ordinate set” by Oscar de la Renta for the ceremony, according to the Daily Mail. The ensemble featured a belted wool-blend tweed peplum jacket and a matching tweed skirt. The outfit is still available to shop in a vibrant raspberry shade:
Per CNN, Muwege, who started a hospital in the Democratic Republic of Congo, “has treated thousands of rape survivors who suffered traumatic injuries at the hands of warring militias.” Meanwhile, Murad, an Iraqi Yazidi human rights activist, is a survivor of sexual violence who was previously enslaved by Islamic State militants. She’s actually worked with Clooney in trying to make ISIS accountable for genocide of the Yazidi people.
In a statement released via Reuters, upon winning the Nobel Peace Prize, Murad said, “Persecution of minorities must end. Sexual violence against women must never be tolerated.”
