Sabrina Elba Shines in Chocolate Gown & Hidden Heels at FN Achievement Awards 2022

Sabrina Elba hit the red carpet at the Footwear News Achievement Awards tonight in New York with her husband, Idris Elba — who will be presenting Christian Louboutin with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the event.

For the occasion, Elba donned a glowing brown gown. Her dark chocolate-toned ensemble included a mock-neck silhouette with long sleeves and a flowing floor-length skirt. Accenting the single-toned piece were shiny rounded gold post earrings. Elba notably also hit the red carpet with both her husband and Louboutin, who the couple collaborated on their “Walk a Mile in My Shoes” collection with in 2021.

Due to her gown’s long length, Elba’s shoes were not visible. However, her ensemble likely was complete with coordinating or complementary high-heeled footwear by Louboutin. The style was certainly worn by Idris, who paired a glossy set of black lace-up loafers with a silver stud-embellished tuxedo.
