Susan Carland is known for her academic credentials. 

But the 41-year-old proved she’s certainly competitive in the style stakes as she attended the premiere of Broadway musical Hamilton on Saturday.

Susan, an accomplished lecturer at Monash University, opted to wear a tailored black pantsuit for the red carpet event.

Susan teamed the pantsuit with a white high-neck blouse. 

She completed her look with a black clutch and a pair of pointy-toe stilettos and drop earrings.

Meanwhile, Waleed looked dashing in a textured blazer and tailored pants.

The Channel 10 star added a crisp white shirt and a pair of black dress shoes.   

Susan has become almost as famous as her Gold Logie-winning husband as she uses her platform as a public intellectual to provide commentary on social issues.

Back in 2016, Susan spoke about her decision to convert from Christianity to Islam at the age of 19, saying it ‘felt like coming home’.

The sociologist admitted she originally thought Islam was a ‘barbaric, outdated and sexist religion’, but after detailed research she realised this was not the case.

She told The Australian Women’s Weekly these misconceptions still permeate society, with many still believing ‘Muslims are all terrorists and kill people’.

Susan, who attended the Uniting Church in Sydney as a child before switching to the Baptist Church as a teenager, said her mother had initially opposed her decision to convert to Islam.

But she was determined, saying: ‘Becoming Muslim felt like coming home. It felt like a natural fit for me as a person.’

The university academic shares two children with Waleed, who describes himself as a ‘moderate Muslim’.

She has previously said she didn’t change religion for her husband, as her faith journey had actually started long before they met.

Speaking at an RTi Talk, Susan said that when people in the Muslim community suggested they would make a good couple, she would tell them: ‘I wouldn’t marry him if he was the last man on earth.’

Obviously she changed her mind and now they’ve been married for 19 years.
