We're just going to go right out and say it: We love Idris Elba! We may even be a little obsessed (who isn't?) and we're not ashamed one bit.

The 42-year-old actor, producer, singer, rapper, and DJ (so multi-talented!) has captured our hearts, and we're officially hooked. Not only is he amazingly talented (see: "The Wire," and "Mandela") he's extremely good looking, and has an amazing sense of style.

Whether he's working the red carpet or participating in serious conferences, the British star always looks undeniably cool. We can't help but sing his praises! He's just the best. And for the record, we think he'd make an amazing James Bond.

Just take a look at the photos below and try not to fall even more in love with him.
