Idris Elba looked dashing at The Prince’s Trust Awards: would you hit it?

UNF. Goodness. Here are some photos of Idris Elba at yesterday’s Celebrate Success Awards for The Prince’s Trust. The Prince’s Trust is the umbrella organization for Prince Charles’ many charities, and the Prince of Wales has many English celebrities acting as ambassadors, mentors and fundraisers for The Prince’s Trust. Benedict Cumberbatch is an ambassador for The Prince’s Trust! Alas, our Cumby was not at this event. But we got Idris, so that’s not bad at all, is it?

You know what I love about Idris? Nearly everything! But in particular, I love his smile. Idris has a smile that could light up a room. I love his posture too – he’s a big, tall man with great shoulders and he owns his size really well. And he knows how to dress his size and frame too – he looks great!

Here’s a photo of Prince Charles looking kind of dowdy yet dashing. I can’t help it, I think Charles has style.

Helen Mirren was at the event too! And Damian Lewis and his wife Helen. Damian looks… tired? Is he filming Homeland now, or does it start production over the summer? My guess is that he has a few more months until he has to come back to America to film (or wherever Brody is going to be next season – Saudi Arabia? Egypt? Syria?)

    Yes. Yes, I would hit it.

  2. Ms Kay says:

    Aaaahhh riiiiiiight now that’s why I saw him yesterday dressed up like that right by Charing Cross when he was jumping into a car! *slaps forehead* :-D

    I was like “what is he doing in London right now? I thought they wrapped up Luther season 3 so he’d be back to the US” anyway I kept walking…

    Idris looks good. And Prince Charles it’s amazing as he ages, his then unfortunate features (ears and nose) are now not that outstanding anymore, he looks good.

  3. T.Fanty says:

    Oh dear God, I would hit it. SO hard.

  4. Miss Jupitero says:

    Helen! I want to be you!

    idris: i want you to be the next James Bond. (Yes, I would hit it!)

    Miss Kay: You make me wish I lived in London!

  5. Miss Jupitero says:

    I think the Prince’s suit looks ill-fitting. Maybe it is just the photo though.

  6. Victoria1 says:

    Climb that like a tree! Hehehe who doesn’t love Stringer Bell?

  7. allons-y alonso says:

    Idris Elba is a badass! I loved him in The Wire

  8. Hannah says:

    Charles has been voted best dressed man in England – I think even a couple of times.

  9. Apples says:

    He is handsome and what a body.

    Prince Charles looks cute in his old age. We always hear how hard he works but, it seems like he doesn’t get the press coverage in America. Where should I look online?

  10. Darkladi says:

    I wouldn’t so much hit it as melt into it like ice cream on hot pavement

  11. mel2 says:

    Hit it til the crack of dawn!

  12. Kaye says:

    Idris’ tie is too short. Otherwise . . . the man is FINE.

  13. Megan says:

    Yes I would hit it, I’d do anything he wanted. That is the sexiest man in Hollywood.

  14. Miss Kiki says:

    Yeeesss I would the man is sex. I would also climb all over Damian Lewis, he too is a beaut.

  15. lisa2 says:

    He is an attractive man. Not sure why he had not really become big on the Big Screen.

    I don’t think internet chatter and gushing is helping.

    anyway his suit is not fitting the way it should. I’m curious what he has coming up. I don’t know much about him. Have seen him in a few films as a supporting character. Hopefully he will be tested as the lead to see how it goes.

    • V4Real says:

      I agree; I don’t know why he hasn’t been the main lead in films but he does have a few movies in post production including a Mandela Movie. But he always steals my attention when he is cast in a supporting role. I loved him in “The Losers” and Takers. I bet if he becomes the first Black James Bond, his career would skyrocket.

  16. valleymiss says:

    I like Idris’ salt n pepper beard. He’s a handsome man…but he needs to button both buttons on his suit. It’s driving me to distraction how his shirt is showing at the bottom.

  17. spinner says:

    Idris?? No thanks…I’ll just look at him.

    Prince Charles always looks elegant & dignified.

    Helen Mirren?? Absolute perfection.

  18. Nessa says:

    Umm. Yeah. I would be all over that. He is the sex.

  19. Amanda says:

    Yeah, I probably would (not like that’s ever gonna happen though). I love that you said dashing. I haven’t seen that word used in a long time.

  20. GeeMoney says:

    I would hit it over and over and over again. Love him!

  21. Georgina says:

    Love, love, LOVE Idris, so yes, I’d definitely hit it!

  22. weetiger3 says:

    Your question must surely be rhetorical, but I will answer anyway with a resounding HELL YES!!

  23. Fleurthefrenchy says:

    He’s hot, classy and talented at the same time, just like Helen!

  24. SouthernGal says:

    Hell yes he can get it. Hubby already know if Idris wants it my HALL PASS will go into effect that day. He is so damn handsome and sexy.

  25. Melma says:

    Does Brody have braces? Something strange is going on with this mouth.

  26. Helvetica says:

    Idris is all man. He is so elegant and dresses really well. Looove his shoes.

  27. Incognita says:

    I used to faithfully watch “The Wire” with my hubby when Idris was on it. My interest in the show waned when his character was killed off. The hubby would always say, “I have a sneaking suspicion why you don’t watch the show with me anymore!” He already knows he would have to give me a “pass” to take liberties with Idris all.night.long!

  28. Agnes says:

    Who WOULDN’T hit it? Hard?

  29. moon says:

    Pass. He looks too George Clooney here.

  30. Bijlee says:

    Gorgeous! Love him. Neil Gaiman’s book Anansi Boys is being made into a film. Idris could (AND SHOULD) easily play the lead roles. He could be Spider and Fat Charlie or Mr. Nancy…or all 3. He’s that talented. But who could play Mr. Nancy if not Idris? I can’t think of anyone else. We need suggestions. Let’s make this a campaign.

  31. I Choose Me says:

    Would you hit it?

    Surprised this is even a question. Idrissa Elba is fine all the time. I had a dream the other night featuring him Boris Kudjoe and Common. It was more weird than sexy though more’s the pity. :)

    Sigh. I know they took a lot of work but I miss the Hot guy posts. It was fun seeing who all you ladies went for. And Kudos to Celebitchy for keeping it diverse during it’s run.

  32. Cali Gurl says:

    Who is Dame Helen Mirren wearing? Erdem? And she must be wearing LK Bennett shoes. She looks fab!

  33. KellyinSeattle says:

    He carries himself like graceful yet masculine, and he looks great in a suit…I think he’s very, very handsome

  34. Victory says:

    I just rewatched The Forsyte Saga and damn, is Damnian hot!!! Just thinking of Soames gives me tingles hahaha :P

  35. Tiffany says:

    Damien’s wife, Helen, looks familiar. Can’t put my finger on what I have seen her in.

  36. Miss Jupitero says:

    Rumors have a bonded that Idris may be up to be the next James Bond! Anyone have any thoughts about this? I am hoping these are not just rumors. I think a POC as Bond would be great, and that Idris would be exceptional.

    Putting the drool back into my mouth now. I *do* have to get some real work done today.

  37. Dredz says:

    Nope, too old for me. He kinda looks like P.Diddy’s daddy.

  38. stacy says:

    Yes, yes, yes!

    This man epitomizes class and sexiness. Whichever lucky woman lands him should thank her lucky stars.

  39. rlh says:

    Absolutely, without question, do not pass go WOULD HIT IT. Idris Elba takes my breath away.

  40. Crevettes Decapitees says:

    I would most certainly NOT hit it. My tongue would become exceedingly familiar with every nook and cranny of that glorious man. I’d give him a thorough spanking. But, no I would not hit him;)

  41. StarTe says:

    I would smack it, hit it and rub it down!

  42. Lemony says:

    I would never be finished with him.

  43. Palermo says:

    I surely would, especially love when he talks

  44. FassDaActor says:

    Let me think for a second…of course!!

  45. jil says:

    WHY hasn’t Idris Alba been People’s SMA? Why can’t he be this year? Clearly many many many people think he’s sex personified.
