Sabrina Elba Sees Stripes in Hooded Dress & Velvet Heels at British Fashion Awards 2022

Sabrina Elba stepped out in dynamic attire for the 2022 British Fashion Awards.

Arriving at Royal Albert Hall for the occasion, the model posed in a vintage Christian Dior hooded dress, originally designed by John Galliano. Her black and red ensemble, styled by Shaquille Ross-Williams, featured a black midi-length sleeveless construction covered in strips of black and red striped feathers. A dark red shaggy hood finished the piece. Complementing Elba’s attire was a gold and diamond bangle, as well as a dark red velvet clutch covered in shiny black beaded crystals.

When it came to footwear, Elba strapped into a slick set of heeled sandals. The Christian Louboutin collaborator’s black velvet pair included thin soles and ankle straps, as well as closed counters. Giving the soft pair a sharp finish were thin heels totaling 3 to 4 inches in height, providing Elba with a sharp height boost while walking the carpet.
