Idris Elba may have ruled himself out of the running to play the next James Bond, but that didn't stop his breathtaking wife Sabrina from conveying serious Bond girl glamour at the premiere of Bob Marley: One Love at the BFI IMAX in London on Tuesday.

The Luther star, 51, looked sharp in a geometric print coat from Labrum London, teaming his vibrant outerwear with khaki trousers and polished leather loafers. His wife Sabrina, 34, who is a Canadian model, stole the spotlight in a stunning monochromatic black ensemble.

The model added a luxurious black fur shrug and a pearl choker, channelling an Audrey Hepburn 'Breakfast At Tiffany's' aesthetic.

Idris and Sabrina tied the knot in 2019 in a thrilling three-day extravaganza in Marrakesh. The couple, who found love at a jazz bar in Vancouver two years prior, revealed to Vogue that they were "inseparable" ever since they met. 

The couple shared their wedding photos in British Vogue's bridal issue in June 2019. In the accompanying interview, they opened up about their three-day celebrations, with Sabrina telling the magazine: "We want the guests to leave remembering the importance of love. Behind all the glitz and the flowers, that's what matters."

Idris also revealed how meeting Sabrina had changed his mind about marriage. He was previously married to Sonya Nicole Hamlin in 2006, and Hanne Norgaard from 1999 to 2003.

"You know, I'm 47 this year, been married, and lived a full life before I even met Sabrina. It wasn't something that I wanted to do, get married again. But…" Idris told Vogue, before sharing how she has changed his life.
