May this serve as a reminder to any journalists getting off topic with Amal Clooney!
Amal clearly didn't seem to think so because she reportedly replied:

Zooey also gets quite talkative about fashion, and makes several excellent points about personal style.
On how she views fashion:
“Fashion is a way of communicating,”You’re saying, ‘Hi, world! How are you? This is me today. Take me or leave me!’ ”
On her personal style:
“I like what I like. It has nothing to do with trends or being a slave to fashion. Sometimes things will be in style and they’re classic and look great, and sometimes …I think it’s important to recognize when fashion has gone to a place that isn’t cute.”
On loving dresses from a young age:
“I remember playing in the dirt when I was two years old. My mom took me back to the car to change me into a clean outfit, and I started crying because I had to put on jeans. I knew I liked dresses. I was always very aware of clothes.”
On getting confidence from clothes:
“I realized that you can actually spend very little money and put something together that looks great and sets you apart. Being able to express myself through fashion made me confident.”
On her lifelong quirkiness:
“There’s a picture of me I wish I could find. I would buy these big, cheap, fluffy ’50s prom dresses from thrift stores and just put them on with a tiara and sit and type at my computer. My room was a total messy-teenager disaster area, but I’d have on a vintage dress and my hair would be perfect.”
On her style icons:“If you look at anyone with great style—Jackie Onassis, Audrey Hepburn—they have certain silhouettes that they don’t really stray from. It’s not like Audrey Hepburn was running around in a bunch of giant shoulder-padded dresses.”
On why she doesn't like boxy silhouettes:
“I have narrow shoulders and a small rib cage, so some things just swallow me up and make me look frumpy."
On what not to wear:
“Daisy Dukes are not for people over 30. I’m just going to go out on a limb and say that right now.”
On her new collection with Tommy Hilfiger:
“I’ve always wanted to design my own clothes, and it was important that they’d be affordable. I didn’t want to exclude anyone. The dresses are really fun.”
On how fashion should make you feel:
“If you feel unhappy putting on your clothes, that’s not the way it should be. Sometimes the fashion world can get overly serious. The whole point is that it should make you feel good about yourself. If it doesn’t, walk away.”
