Idris Elba and Fiancée Sabrina Dhowre Put Their Love on Display in the Front Row at LFW

As was to be expected, the front row at London Fashion Week (Feb. 16 to 20) has been teeming with famous faces, from young influencers to seasoned actors and more. The Burberry show on Saturday saw an influx of British celebs, including actor Idris Elba, who was accompanied by his new fiancée Sabrina Dhowre.

The award-winning actor, who popped the question to his girlfriend last week during a screening of his big screen directorial debut, “Yardie,” posed for shots in the front row with the 29-year-old, who was crowned Miss Vancouver in 2014.

The happy couple looked ultrachic, with the 45-year-old father of two sporting an unbuttoned navy, green and red plaid double-breasted coat over a simple charcoal tee paired with light-wash jeans and dark gray suede boots.

Meanwhile, Dhowre wore T-strap Burberry sandals with skinny black trousers and a statement fire-engine-red patent leather trench coat.

Model and activist Adwoa Aboah joined them in the front row at Burberry, turning heads in a daring look, courtesy of the heritage British label, that featured a bright orange sweatsuit under a checked blazer and a scarf thrown over one shoulder. She finished her look with slip-ons bearing the brand’s signature plaid print.
