Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Amal Clooney continues to accompany her trophy husband, George, on red carpets around the world. They're celebrating his Coen Brother's film Hail, Caesar!, but Amal is the real focus point, as is true and right.

On this particular red carpet in the tour, the couple was at the Berlinale International Film Festival in Berlin. She wore a 1981 vintage Yves Saint Laurent dress. (Amal is a fan of the vintage design houses, like this '60s Lanvin matching set.) Creep on great couple interactions about 20 seconds into this footage of their arrival to the event.

Amal and George followed up the premiere by meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, where they discussed the Syrian crisis. David Miliband, the former British foreign secretary and current head of the International Rescue Committee (IRC), told the Associated Press, "It wouldn't be right to come to Berlin and have a film festival and pretend there wasn't a big global issue for which Germany was in the eye of the storm." For a human rights lawyer married to an international film star, true.
