Idris Elba and Naomie Harris at Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom Press Conference

Posted on September 11, 2013

Such is the awesome power of Idris Elba that the following didn’t even bother us:

Idris Elba and Naomie Harris attend “Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ Press Conference during the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. Naomie Harris is wearing a Burberry dress paired with Christian Louboutin boots.

When we’re pretty sure that shorts and a t-shirt worn by any other man to a photocall 0r press conference like this would set us off into fits of high dudgeon. But Idris is no mere man. He’s a man with spectacular legs. We won’t defend the look from a style perspective (even if it is a nice shirt and pair of shorts), but we can’t really say he looks bad. He just looks like he’s attending an entirely different event than she is. Also, he needs to lotion up those knees if he wants to wear shorts for photographers.

As for her, she’s killing it. Love that skirt. Booties seem a little odd with a sleeveless look in early September, but aside from that extremely minor quibble, everything here looks chic and perfectly suited to her. From a style point of view, she’s the clear winner here, but from a legs point of view, she’s a distant second to us.
