Chris Pine supports Armani

Chris Pine has enjoyed a stay at Giorgio Armani's hotel during his trip to Milan.

The 33-year-old actor is the face of the designer's Armani Code fragrance and was a star guest at the Italian's Armani Hotel Bamboo Bar party last night.

He is also set to attend the brand's fashion show today. Chris also stayed at the hotel, which he told WWD was "seamlessly" designed and had helped him deal with his jetlag.

Chris was announced as the face of Armani Code in February this year and Giorgio previously explained his reasoning behind the choice.

"Chris perfectly embodies the brand’s spirit with his strong charisma and natural elegance. Besides revealing great talent, high versatility and the right amount of irony on set, his magnetic charm makes him the ideal match for this fragrance," Giorgio told the website at the time.

It is the first campaign that the Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit actor has fronted. While Chris is thrilled to work so closely with the 79-year-old, Giorgio isn't the only designer that Chris likes to wear.

"I'm into RRL, Ralph Lauren's vintage-inspired line," he previously told

"I love his jeans because I like that thick denim. [US designer] Thom Browne makes a good shirt I like. I try to 'venture out' with shoes - I'm [older] now, so I think I need to get a good pair of boots - but inevitably I go right back to [Converse] Chuck Taylors. You can't beat 'em!"

Chris is famous for his piercing blue eye, but he can't just rely on them to secure him such lucrative advertising campaigns like his Armani contract. He has to maintain a good physique, so the actor heads to the gym, which he also sees as "therapy".
