The high-profile lawyer wore a black cropped blazer over her sparkling bubble-hem top featuring rows of glittering crystals, pairing the outfit with silver Gianvito Rossi heels ($681), a Giambattista Valli purse ($2,212) and dazzling drop earrings.

Clooney — who was named one of TIME’s “Women of the Year” for 2022 — stressed that the U.N. needs to hold countries accountable for war crimes as she spoke during an informal meeting of the U.N. Security Council.

“What worries me as I sit here today is that the resolute action we have seen in the first 50 days of this war will turn out to be the high point instead of the starting point of the legal and diplomatic response,” she said, via The Hill.
