George Clooney's Fiancee Amal Alamuddin -- Wigs Out During Law School Graduation

George Clooney
is marrying a beautiful, accomplished woman who was once forced to wear something that makes you think she may be distantly related to General Charles Cornwallis.

Truth be told ... Amal Alamuddin got a law degree from Oxford in 2000, and wore the whole English getup for her graduation.  We're guessing the powdered wig stayed in the closet.

She's now a successful international lawyer ... securing British victories at Brandywine and Camden.
