The Prince’s Trust Awards were given a touch of Hollywood glamour on Tuesday afternoon as Amal Clooney made a glamorous appearance at London’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane – albeit without A-list husband George.
The human rights lawyer led a star-studded red carpet convoy that also featured popular Bridgerton actress Phoebe Dynevor and TV presenter Fearne Cotton as the annual event got underway within the iconic Covent Garden venue.
Sponsored by TK Maxx and HomeSense, the special event celebrates individuals and organisations supported by the charity who have achieved incredible accomplishments, with the winners given the opportunity to share their stories.
Launched by Charles, Prince of Wales in 1976, the charity assists young people from disadvantaged and impoverished areas in developing key life skills while providing the opportunity to develop stable careers.
Greeting onlookers ahead of the ceremony, Amal, 44, looked stunning in a red floral dress that served to compliment her slender physique as she posed for photos.
Conventional white stiletto heels completed the outfit, while a tasteful white leather clutch appeared to be her only visible accessory.
Elsewhere rising star Phoebe, 27, caught the eye in a fitted black trouser suit with wide lapels and a cropped length that partially exposed her torso.
Not to be outdone, TV regular Fearne made her latest public appearance in a tastefully sequined ankle-length dress, entirely in keeping with her typically bohemian sense of style.

Drury Lane has undergone major renovations in recent years, reopening in July 2021 with the Frozen musical currently showing.
Inside the theatre, Charles spoke to Bridgerton stars Jonathan Bailey and Phoebe Dynevor, with the former joking that he expected the raunchy Netflix show to “be on for the next 50 years”.
Bailey told the prince the series has been shooting in Bath and described the city as “stunning”.
