Style-wise, Amal Clooney can pretty much do no wrong.

The 37-year-old human rights lawyer stepped out in New York City with her husband George Clooney on Tuesday to launch the 100 Lives initiative -- which remembers those who helped save lives during the Armenian genocide by the Ottoman government in 1915 -- looking amazing in a blue cut-out gown that showed some tasteful skin on the side.

It's been 100 years since the Armenian genocide first started, and the 53-year-old actor was on hand-at the event with the co-founder of the initiative, Ruben Vardanyan, to speak of the significance of the anniversary.

Clooney also announced the Aurora Prize for Awakening Humanity honor, which will be given to those who put themselves at risk for others.

"I am honored to be associated with 100 Lives as it shares a common mission with my foundation, Not On Our Watch, to focus global attention on the impact of genocide as well as putting resources towards ending mass atrocities around the world," Clooney said in a press release. "It should weigh heavily on all of us that genocide still takes place today. We have to tackle this head on -- as individuals, as communities and as governments."

The cause is an important one for Amal as well. In January, she was in Strasbourg representing Armenia in their case against Doğu Perinçek, the leader of the Turkish Workers' Party. Perinçek was convicted of denying the Armenian genocide in 2007, and Amal was arguing on an appeal that ruled in favor of Perinçek in Dec. 2013.
