Amal Clooney's commitment to being the best dressed woman in every room is becoming more commonplace than ever.

The human rights lawyer (41) and husband George Clooney (57) were among the celebrity guests of honour at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday night to attend a dinner hosted by Prince Charles for the Prince's Trust International. Clooney (née Alamuddin) chose a white caped Grecian-style gown dating back to 2007 from Stephane Rolland's couture collection, and a close-up of the gown shows the non-draped side is a gold lace embellished arm sleeve. According to Vogue, the piece was acquired from William Vintage, a luxury boutique which specialises in souring rare high fashion items in Marylebone, London.

Clooney is a long-standing customer of the store, having preciously worn a gown from Yves Saint Laurent's 1981 collection to the Hail, Caesar! premiere in 2016 and in 2017, chose a gold Versace dress from the '90s to a party honouring the retailer.

Actor Josh Hartnett, in a burgundy velvet tuxedo, and wife Tamsin Egerton in a corduroy midi dress from The Vampire's Wife, were also present, as was Benedict Cumberbatch in a classic black tuxedo. The event attracted donors, supporters, and ambassadors invited into the palace, and was an acknowledgment of the celebrity support Charles has relied on to spread the word of the organisation over the years.

Charles founded the trust in 1976 to help vulnerable young people get their lives back on track.

The charity has helped 870,000 young people since 1976 and supports over 100 more each day. Three in four of these young people move into work, training or education.
