Chelsea legend Drogba, 44, looked sharp in a full black tuxedo.

While Gabrielle stunned in an elegant silver dress.

Drogba and his new girlfriend went public earlier this year, attending a Formula E race together in Saudi Arabia.

He also posted a picture of himself with her last week.

Followed by a heart emoji, he wrote: “A date with my Date @gabrielle__lemaire.”

Drogba announced his split from wife Lalla in January 2021 after ten years of marriage.

Having met in the late 1990s, Drogba and Lalla wed in 2011.

The Ivorian took to Instagram last year to explain the situation.

He wrote: “I’m not in the habit of discussing my private life.

“But, because of speculation in the media today, I can confirm that sadly, after 20 years together, Lalla and I took the difficult decision to separate last year.

“We remain very close, and our main priorities have been to protect our children and our family’s private life.

“May God bless you.”

Drogba and Lalla have three children together; sons Isaac, 21, and Kieran, 12 – and daughter Iman.

The former striker hosted last night’s awards bash – presenting winners Karim Benzema and Alexia Putellas with their trophies.

He extended a special congratulations to them on Instagram, writing: “History Makers: Gracias and Congratulations @karimbenzema @alexiaputellas @francefootball Best in the World.

“What an amazing night.”
