Human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, fiancee of Hollywood pin-up George Clooney attended the summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict (ESVC) in London today.

Ms Alamuddin was listening to the speeches from the audience at the opposite side of the auditorium to where Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were sitting.

The Oxford-educated barrister, who has represented WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, has been described as a "passionate defender of human rights".

And she attended the third day of the international summit, without her handsome husband-to-be.

The summit welcomes governments from over 100 countries, over 900 experts, NGOs, faith leaders, and representatives from international organisations across the world.

Amal wore a red suit paired with flower-adorned slingback shoes and a massive brown handbag.

Clooney and Alamuddin are first thought to have met in September, with rumours of their engagement surfacing in April.

Doughty Street Chambers, the law firm Amal works for, confirmed the happy news while George's close pal Matt Damon also offered his congratulations.

Some see Beirut-born Amal as having tamed The Monuments Men star. For many years George had been thought of as an eternal bachelor.
