Amal Clooney is the May cover star for Vogue US, posing for the fashion magazine for the first time.

A celebrated barrister and humanitarian, Amal – who married George Clooney in a lavish Venetian wedding in 2014 – has become just as well known for her style in recent years.

On the cover of the magazine, Amal wears a printed, pink Alexander McQueen top and Cartier earrings. And it goes without saying she looks gorgeous.

In the inside interview, the mum-of-two opens up about the her life since giving birth to twins (they’ve said their first words – “George was very careful to ensure that ‘Mama’ was the first word,” Amal says) , balancing work and the early days of her relationship with George (she said falling in love with George Clooney felt like “the most natural thing in the world”).

The magazine also profiles the fashion icon by interviewing her friends and family, including her mother Baria Alamuddin, her cousin and George Clooney himself.

Amal also weighs in on gun control – a topic she and husband George have shown support for recently attending the March For Our Lives, which George even donated $500,000 to.

“I’ve seen lots of commentary where people have tried to say, ‘This isn’t about having too many guns or allowing semiautomatic and automatic weapons to be purchased too easily — surely this is about mental health, or about violence and movies,’” she said. “The fact is, there are violent movies all over the world, and there are mental-health issues in other countries. But this doesn’t happen in other developed countries. The difference is guns, and how widely and easily available they are.”

Amal also had her say on the #MeToo movement.

“I think because of the brave women who have come forward to tell their stories, the future workplace will be safer for my daughter than it was for people of my generation,” Clooney told Vogue. “We’re in a situation where a predator feels less safe and a professional woman feels more safe, and that’s where we need to be.”
