Once again, Amal Clooney seemed born to walk the red carpet at the première for her husband's latest film.

The legal eagle (37) swapped her courtroom robes for a flirty flared red and white Giambattista Valli dress that showed off her seemingly endless legs at the première of George's new Coen brothers movie Hail, Caesar! on Monday at the Regency Theatre in Los Angeles.

The genetically blessed couple, who have been Mr and Mrs Clooney for two years now, looked as smitten as ever as they smooched and nuzzled each other, as though they were oblivious to the frenzied flashbulbs going off around them.

The raven-haired beauty paired her sweet frock up with pointy silver pumps and a gold clutch.

Her exquisite engagement ring sparkled on her finger for the occasion -- which, rumour has it, Amal doesn't wear to work because the diamond is so enormous it can be a distracting.

And as a human rights lawyer, you can understand why -- Amal deals with major international cases, such her most recent, that of former Maldivian President Mohamed Nasheed.

Amal and her co-counsel Jared Genser have defended the embattled politician, whom they say has been wrongly imprisoned the Maldives government, for months.

Last week, Nasheed, who Amal has described as "the Mandela of the Maldives", was given permission to travel to the UK for spinal surgery operation, which Amal told NBC brought him "one step closer to justice."

"But there's still a lot to do," she added. "There are still grave problems in the Maldives and we have a lot to discuss."

Nasheed was first democratically elected president of the tiny island, but was forced out of office in 2012 as part of a gunpoint coup. The current government claims Nasheed voluntary stepped down.

Following this, Nasheed was sentenced to 13 years behind bars in March last year under "anti-terror" laws, for ordering the arrest of a judge while he was president. His trial has been described by a United Nations official as a "mockery" of justice.

Nasheed is required to return within 45 days to finish out his 13-year sentence.
