Amal and George Clooney looked like the perfect power couple as they arrived late Wednesday to the United Nations Correspondents Association Awards in New York City.

The high-profile human rights attorney dressed to impress as she was honored as 2018's Global Citizen of the Year. 

The brunette beauty stunned in a gauzy blue and white number with a plunging neckline and sported a smile as she held hands with her world-famous actor husband.

The annual UN Correspondents Awards, which is in its 70th year, said it honors the 'best media coverage of the United Nations and UN agencies.' 

Amal spoke at the event about Jamal Khashoggi, 59, the journalist murdered in Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

UN Correspondent Bahman Kalbasi said she pointed blame at President Trump for giving 'authoritarian regimes around the world a green light to suppress journalist.'

Amal said: 'It was only a few weeks ago Khashoggi walked into the Saudi consulate in Turkey.'

Amal was appointed to her first UN commission in 2013 and has taken on a number of high profile international cases in her career as a civil rights lawyer, activist and humanitarian. 

Amal's semi-sheer voile frock teased her long legs as it got swept up in the wind, also revealing a pair of color-coordinated navy shoes. 

The mom-of-two kept her accessories at a minimum, opting for only a simple snap clutch. 

Adding some Hollywood glamour, Amal swept her hair to the side and styled it in full-bodied curls.

The Beruit-born attorney played up her natural good looks with a hint of red lipstick and polished eyebrows.

Also Wednesday, a justice foundation created by the power couple announced the global initiative TrialWatch.

The purpose of the initiative is to monitor court trials where there is a risk of abuse and to rank countries' judicial systems.  

TrialWatch will work with the Columbia University Law School and the American Bar Association to train an international network of court monitors, including non-lawyers, whose reports will be used by legal experts to grade trials according to international standards.

Amal said of the announcement: 'Today, courts all over the world are used as tools of oppression. 

'Governments get away too easily with imprisoning opposition figures, silencing critics and persecuting vulnerable groups through the courts. Trial monitoring will shine a light on these abuses.'
