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 wears amazing Altuzarra floral go-go boots when she's off the clock, but her work attire is just as fun to keep track of.

The Washington Post reports that the human rights attorney was back on Capitol Hill today as she works to free her client Khadija Ismayilova, an imprisoned journalist in Azerbaijan. She wore a belted white peplum power suit while in DC, as seen in the photo tweeted by Rep. Jim McGovern.

It's not that aggressive of a peplum, but still we're getting strong Olivia Pope vibes from this look. The Scandal heroine been known to wear a white suit, after all, and there's an entire compendium of Pope peplums on the site Worn on TV. The idea that Amal Clooney is the real life Olivia Pope is starting to make so much sense.
