George and Amal Clooney step out in New York on their 5th wedding anniversary a day after UN address

George and Amal Clooney were spotted out in New York again on Friday, following a hectic day before where she headed to dinner for a double date with Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, only hours after appearing at the United Nations for the second time this week.

The day after she addressed a meeting of high-level officials from 20 countries who convened to discuss placing ISIS fighters on trial in Iraq, the human rights lawyer emerged from a West Village townhouse looking carefree in a black miniskirt and matching kimono, paired with below-the-knee chunky heeled boots and a pink top.

Worn with a red manicure and loose ringlets in her hair, it made a big difference to the serious black suit she had worn for work duties on Thursday. 

The 41-year-old’s husband, 58, opted for a casual look that almost mirrored their appearance the previous night.

George appeared in faded blue jeans and a Polo shirt similar to the color of a button-down he smartened up with the night before to dine at 4 Charles Prime Rib steakhouse. 

The American actor – who fathers two-year-old twins Ella and Alexander with British-Lebanese barrister Amal – paired it with suede shoes as he led the way down steps into the Big Apple street.

Ever the gentleman, George ushered his wife into a vehicle outside the red-brick home. 

The couple covered their eyes with dark sunglasses after celebrating their relationship milestone with Gerber, 57, and Crawford, 53, who are parents to model children Kaia, 18, and Presley, 20.

In 2016, the Clooneys bought a home in the same Midtown Manhattan One Hundred East Fifty Third Street tower as Gerber and Crawford. The close friends collectively sold a compound their two homes were on in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for $100million in 2017.

Legendary supermodel Crawford was snapped carrying salads from Sweetgreen on Friday following Thursday night’s meal and Clooneys may have had the same idea to load up on greens in NYC as the 74th Session of the United Nations General Assembly continued.

On Thursday, Mrs Clooney sat next to Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Blok, who has taken the initiative of setting up possible tribunals for some 20,000 ISIS members.

Blok is working alongside his Iraqi counterpart, Ali Alhakim, who helped organize a meeting that included diplomats from 20 countries, according to the Dutch news site NRC.  

There are an estimated 20,000 ISIS fighters in Iraq – 1,000 of them being foreigners from European and other Western countries. 

For years, Mrs Clooney has represented ethnic Yazidi women who were taken captive and forced into sexual slavery by ISIS.

Yazidis are a minority community in Iraq who were recognized by the UN as victims of genocide by ISIS.

Mrs Clooney represents Yazidi women and girls who were held in the house of Umm Sayyaf, the wife of Islamic State financier Abu Sayyaf.

Kayla Mueller, an American humanitarian aid worker, was also held there for a time. In February 2015, reports surfaced indicating that she had been killed while in ISIS captivity.

Amal Clooney has long advocated that ISIS fighters and officials responsible for crimes against Yazidi women and girls be brought to trial.

Clooney also made an appearance at the UN on Tuesday to speak out about press freedoms.

She told a panel that journalists worldwide faced danger in countries with unstable political climates.

‘Our research targets laws being used every day to punish journalists for their work,’ Clooney said.

‘Laws like criminal libel, vague or overboard hate speech laws, so-called fake news laws, and laws that muzzle the media by imposing arbitrary conditions on ownership, accreditation and funding.’
