Idris Elba's 16-year-old daughter Isan glows in plaid crop top & skirt with dad's fiancée in pic
Isan Elba is a stunner as she walks down the street with Sabrina Dhwore, her father’s fiancée, in a pic shared to her Instagram. The teenager is still basking in the excitement of being chosen as the 2019 Golden Globe Ambassador.
Idris Elba’s daughter looks stunning in a recent pic as she stepped out for dinner with her father’s fiancée, Sabrina Dhwore. The 16-year-old rocked a plaid crop top and a matching skirt that put her toned legs and midriff on display and completed the look with pointy black shoes and her long hair flowing down her back.
Sabrina, on the other hand, flaunted her curves in a tight printed dress with a low cut that put her cleavage on display. She threw a leather jacket over his shoulders and added black high heels and a matching purse to complete the chic look.
“Cutest dinner duo!” Isan captioned the photo, where she’s holding Sabrina’s hand in a tight grip.
Fans of Isan’s famous dad took over her comment section to praise her for being such a mature girl and having a close relationship with her soon-to-be stepmother. “I love how close you are to your dad's fiance that is so beautiful,” wrote one user, and another opted for pointing out the girls’ beauty: “Drop dead gorgeous ladies,” they wrote.
GOLDEN GLOBE AMBASSADOR
Two weeks ago, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association named Isan as the 2019 Golden Globe Ambassador. The role, traditionally filed by the daughter or son of a relevant actor, was known as Miss/Mr. Golden Globe until last year, when the association decided to renamed it to “represent a more inclusive role that was not only gender-neutral but also spoke to the HFPA’s commitment to philanthropy.”
Isan will be in charge of distributing trophies among the winner at the January 6 Golden Globe Awards ceremony. But on top of that, the student also gets the chance of working with an organization to raise awareness for a cause of her choice.
Elba will be focusing her efforts on erasing the mental health stigma among the African American community, especially teenagers.
She said at the press conference:
“I’m really honored to have this position and be able to talk about things that, issues that I care about such as mental health, expression among African Americans, and my peers in particular. There’s a perceived stigma, and I’ve seen my friends struggle with it."
ERASING MENTAL HEALTH STIGMAS
While she hasn’t picked the organization she’ll be working with yet, Isan has stated in several occasions that she was inspired by Taraji Henson’s newly founded non-profit, the Boris Lawson Henson Foundation, which focuses on mental health issues in the African American community.
“I love what she's doing for the African American community," she told Glamour of her admiration for Taraji. "I hope that I can bring some light [to these issues]."
Isan knows that opening up about personal struggles is difficult for some people. “It is hard to ask for help, and to speak to someone that you may not feel comfortable talking about your problems,” she told Teen Vogue, encouraging people to look for someone "that you can trust, [and] that you know and feel comfortable with."
Leading by example, Isan revealed that she sees her therapist regularly, and now that she has to deal with the double pressure of school and being on the spotlight for the Golden Globes, it helps to have someone to unload when the pressure gets too much.
BALANCING SCHOOL AND AMBASSADOR'S DUTIES
Isan was aware of the load of work she was about to experience when accepting the role as ambassador, as she has to split her time between school in Atlanta and her duties with the HFPA in Los Angeles. And she doesn’t regret it.
“This is such great experience, and I would never change this for the world. So I'm definitely just taking in the moment because I'd definitely be stressing about this term paper about the progressive era that I have due! You definitely have to know your limits and know what you can handle."
