Barbie director Greta Gerwig cuts a glamorous figure in a floral dress and cape 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 evening.
The Barbie director, 40, attended the glitzy showbiz event hosted by George and Amal Clooney and wowed in a floral dress and cape, while her husband looked dapper in a tuxedo.
Greta completed the glittering look with a suede gold bag and smiled as she arrived in the evening.
The event, which honors people who have dedicated their lives to justice, is named after Judge 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 dating since 2011 – were seen socializing with other A-Listers as the festivities began.
