To speak at the Headquarters of the United Nations in New York City, Clooney wore a retro-inspired two-piece polka dot outfit to help command the room. The famed lawyer wore a black pencil skirt with tan polka dots, which hit right above the knee, with a matching short-sleeve button-up top.

The top featured four buttons that ended at the high waist, where the top then opened slightly to create a peplum-like silhouette. Clooney paired the look with a sleek black leather bag, simple black pumps with a pointed toe and nearly 4-inch heel, and a pair of large ’60s-inspired sunglasses.

The lawyer accessorized with minimal rounded gem earrings in black, wearing her hair down in loose waves. Always one for minimal makeup, Clooney wore a statement coral lip, keeping the rest of her glam minimal. She topped off the classic look with a lovely cherry-red manicure, keeping with the retro vibe.

Clooney attended the meeting, which was called by Albania and France, not only as a noted international and human rights lawyer but as a representative for the Clooney Foundation for Justice, an organization she founded with her famous husband, actor George Clooney. She is part of an international legal task force advising Ukraine on how to “secure accountability for Ukrainian victims in national jurisdictions,” according to Reuters.

“Ukraine is, today, a slaughterhouse — right in the heart of Europe,” Clooney said at the meeting, calling for the UN to focus on pursuing legal action on behalf of Ukrainian victims of war.
