  • She was attending a meeting in New York this week

    Amal Clooney might have only given birth to her twins in June, but she’s already heading back to work. The 39-year-old human rights barrister met with Nikki Haley, the U.S.’s ambassador to the United Nations, as well as the the U.N. Security Council this week to continue the fight against ISIS.

    The Associated Press reports that during the meeting, the security council agreed to offer Iraq the U.N’s help with their investigations and collections of evidence against ISIS, holding them accountable for war crimes.

    Amal is representing Yazidi victims who have been raped and kidnapped by ISIS and reportedly told the council: ‘Yazidis and other ISIS victims want justice in a court of law, and they deserve nothing less.’

    Her back-to-work outfit was impeccable – a cropped red blazer teamed with an A-line skirt, complimented with a tan bag and nude pumps.

    However, it’s the bold orange pussy-bow blouse that has really got the fashpack talking.

    It’s Amal’s first day back since the arrival of her two tiny bundles of joy, Alexander and Ella. George Clooney has spoken publicly about what it’s like to be a new father, saying: ‘Right now my job is changing diapers and walking them around a little bit. I really didn’t think at 56 that I would be the parent of twins. Don’t make plans. You always have to just enjoy the ride.

    ‘I just have to clean the barf off of my tux. It used to be my barf but now it’s the twins’ barf. So it all works out.’

    Although E! reported that she planned to take six months maternity leave, it looks like Amal is ready to go back to work – and, of course, she’s doing it with style.
