Barbie director Greta Gerwig cuts a glamorous figure in a floral caped gown as she joins her partner Noah Baumbach at the Clooney Foundation’s Albie Awards
Greta Grewig and her partner Noah Baumbach stepped out in style for the Albie Awards in New York City on Thursday night.
The Barbie director, 40, attended the glitzy showbiz event held by George and Amal Clooney and wowed in a floral caped gown whilst her husband looked dapper in a tuxedo.
Greta finished the shimmering look with a suede gold purse and was all smiles as she arrived for the evening.
The event, which honors people who have devoted their lives to justice, were named after Justice Albie Sachs, a lawyer and former judge who was imprisoned for his fight to end apartheid in South Africa.
After posing for photos, the pair – who have been in a relationship since 2011 – were seen cosying up to other A-Listers as the celebrations got underway.

George and Amal, who just celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary the previous day, founded the Clooney Foundation For Justice in 2016, and ultimately they hosted the inaugural Albies last September.
They founded the organization in order to ‘help protect human rights’ and to make sure ‘no one is above the law’, all while providing resources to victims of human rights abuses, according to the CFJ website.
Since its inception the Clooney Foundation For Justice has grown every year, and now works in more than 40 countries.
