The navy blue suit Elba wore to the SAG Awards earlier this year gained him a spot on many best-dressed lists that night. His best accessory of all, however, was his 15-year-old daughter, Isan, who walked the red carpet with her famous father. "This is my beautiful daughter. She's my date today," the doting dad told ET at the time.
