Born to mother, Maryan Egal, the Somali model Sabrina Dhowre Elba came to fame after she got together with her now-husband, Idris Elba. But, this isn’t the only thing she became famous for.
The East African started getting fame when she won Ms. and Mr. Vancouver Pageant in 2014. Since then, she’s appeared as a model for the Harrods Magazine and has walked the runway for Roland Mouret many times.
From such career choices, Sabrina must’ve earned a decent fortune, right? So, let’s find out what her net worth is!
What is Sabrina Dhowre Elba Net Worth?
Sabrina Dhowre Elba’s net worth is $3 million as of 2020. Her fortune is all thanks to her successful career as a model and probably her pageant win in 2014.
An average model earns around $32,000 to $48,000 annually based on their tenure. Since Elba is a successful model, she might make somewhere around the higher section, that is, near to the $48,000 mark.
Added to her career as a model, she has also been featured as the cover model for a number of top tier magazines such as Dujour and Harrods Magazine. From such, she must’ve generated a decent wage, doesn’t she?
In contrast, Sabrina’s husband Idris Elba holds an estimated net worth of around $25 million. As an actor, the Pacific Rim star earns an average of $8 million every year.
On April 27, 2019, Idris and Sabrina married in a lavish 3-day extravaganza. The marriage took place at Marrakesh, Morocco, while accommodating 200 guests. So, there’s no doubt the marriage cost the duo a fortune.
What’s more, the bride’s wedding day gown designed by Vera Wang cost her a whopping £3,312 ($4,063). So, it’s safe to say, Sabrina and her hubby are living a lavish lifestyle with their combined net worth of $28 million.
How did Elba Get into Modeling?
The Somali model Sabrina Dhowre got into modeling in 2014 when she was in her junior year of University. She revealed that a woman walked up to her at a mall and told her that she should enter a pageant.
Elba needed volunteer hours for graduation, and she thought it “would be a good way to get into doing some philanthropic work.” Well, she ended up modeling, and even, much to her surprise, won the pageant.
From her Ms. and Mr. Vancouver win in 2014, it’s not revealed what Dhowre earned. But, looking at what the former Ms. Vancouver, Ashley Brooks won, she might also have received somewhere around $5,000 in Apple prizes, a chance to be mentored under a modeling coach, and an exotic trip.
The former winner was also promised a hosting position at Vancouver TV, but she didn’t receive anything, and so Brooks requested an $80,000 compensation. But, it turned out bad for both Brooks and the channel. Since we haven’t heard such news from Dhowre, she might have received all of her prizes.
Did you know Sabrina had to pay $1350 as the base application fee to enter the competition?
Sabrina and Philanthropy
The Howard University graduate Sabrina Dhowre Elba was always drawn towards helping other people. She’s quite doing the same for decades now.
On her husband’s 47th birthday, the duo went to the streets of Brixton and raised money for the Brixton Soup Kitchen. Likewise, the partners are also actively a part of the Prince’s Trust, which was founded by Prince Charles.
Around February 2020, Sabrina was on a trip to Costa Rica with Conservation Org. There, she planted as many as 13,000 mangrove seeds in Chira Island, Costa Rica.
