Headline of the Weekend: "Internationally Acclaimed barrister marries an actor"

For the win, from Business Woman Media:
The lead:
Amal Alamuddin, a London-based dual-qualified English barrister and New York litigation attorney who has long been a high-profile figure in international refugee and human rights law, has gone against the trend for professional women in her field and married… an actor. Amal, 36, is an educated and successful career woman we’ve long admired. The high-flying barrister has notched up many career highs, including representing the controversial WikiLeaks whistleblower Julian Assange, and also has multilingual fluency in English, French and Arabic.
 She is also, of course, of Lebanese Druze origin. She apparently married some guy.
