Darren Gerrish for British Vogue
Did our invite get lost in the mail?
On Sunday, British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enniful hosted a tea to honor Oprah, and the guest list was lit.
It included A Wrinkle In Time Ava director DuVernay and star Storm Reid, along with actor Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years A Slave). The party looked spectacular, and there were three guests in particular who were absolutely glowing. ESSENCE Fest performer Idris Elba, his mother, Eve Elba, and his fiancée, Sabrina Dhowre, attended the event together and posed for the cameras too.
The future Mrs. Elba spent quality time with Mama Elba and Queen Oprah? What a day! The former Miss Vancouver was beaming in the photos, and who could blame her?
Sunday also happened to be Mother’s Day in London, and Elba, 45, took to Instagram to share a heartfelt message to his mom.
“When International women’s day is extended and rolls into Mother’s Day!! @oprah made my Mum’s cheeks blush! she was smiling so much @sabrinadhowre Three women that mean the world to me. #awrinkleintime For girls and boys!! everywhere @ava,” he wrote.
What a moment!
