George and Amal Clooney glam up as they enjoy time together in Venice

George and Amal Clooney looked stunning together as they posed for photos at the DVF Awards in Venice on Thursday night.

Human rights lawyer, 45, looked gorgeous when she arrived at the ceremony before being honored with the DVF Leadership Award along with four other women, at the Sala degli Arazzi of the Giorgio Cini Foundation.

The couple turned heads at the 14th annual event, founded by designer Diane von Furstenberg which recognises extraordinary women who are dedicated to transforming other women’s lives.

Amal wore a blush lace dress, which had a tulle overskirt, and a pair of strappy metallic sandals.

Her long locks were softly curled and her full face of makeup made her glow even more at the ceremony, which was being hosted during the Venice International Film Festival.

Meanwhile, her husband and Hollywood icon, 62, looked handsome as usual in an all black suit, which he wore with a slightly unbuttoned navy shirt.

The DVF’s website has a bio for Amal, explaining why she is being honored with the prestigious award.

It reads: “Amal Clooney is an award-winning human rights lawyer who has spent the past two decades defending victims of injustice around the world. She represents clients before international courts, including the International Criminal Court, the International Court of Justice and the European Court of Human Rights.”

The bio continued to say that Amal has represented “high-profile political prisoners and survivors of mass atrocities, such as the Yazidi women and girls enslaved by ISIS, civilians attacked by Sudanese militia and government forces in Darfur, and female activists imprisoned around the globe.”

They added that Amal’s “track record in securing freedom for unjustly detained journalists around the world is unmatched.”

The mother of two is currently serving on the Task Force on Accountability for Crimes Committed in Ukraine, to “support justice for victims of war crimes and other human rights abuses.”

Actor, producer, writer, advocate and bestselling author Lilly Singh also recieved an award during the night.

Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations Amina J. Mohammed and the founder of the Algorithmic Justice League, Dr. Joy Buolamwini, were also honored.

Helena Gualinga, an environmental and human rights defender who advocates for the protection of the Amazon Rainforest, also received an award.

Diane von Furstenberg and her family foundation founded the awards in 2010 to recognize women who have helped the lives of other women.

Each year, five awards are given to women who have “demonstrated leadership, strength, and courage” in their commitment to women’s causes.

The foundation grants those honored with $100,000 for their non-profit organization.
