One of the hottest contemporary actors, he’s also one of the most humble and easy going. Idris Elba epitomizes the best of British acting talent. Born to a Sierra Leonean father and Ghanian mother, Elba grew up in London and credits The Prince’s Trust with helping launch his acting career. A professional DJ and musician as well, Elba marries a suave and sophisticated onscreen presence with a streetwise demeanor.



In style, Elba adopts a softer, polished approach. He can often be found in Ivy Style suits with two button jackets with flap pockets. At 6’3 the British actor towers over many of his colleagues but his style never lets on. Elba also looks great in three piece suits, adding a touch of English formality with a five button waistcoat to elevate his look.



The sexy father-of-two keeps fit and doesn’t mind showing off his great physique in a white cotton men’s dress shirt and casual pants or a snug fitting Henley tee. A signature closely shaved beard/goatee with hints of grey and white add to his air of charm and sophistication.
