Amal Clooney who is expecting twins was just adorable in the white dress. Receiving an honorary award in Paris last Friday, George Clooney gave a speech, in which he spoke against the “hate” and “fear” promulgated by U.S. President Donald Trump.

Despite the strong political context of his speech, Mr Clooney was sometimes humorous, the actor was accompanied onstage by Oscar-winner Jean Dujardin (The Artist), who offered up an impromptu, sometimes off-kilter translation of Clooney’s words.

The best passage from Clooney’s speech was definitely this one: “love Trumps hate, courage Trumps fear and always right Trump’s wrongs.”
