Jon Snow may be the face of the Night’s Watch, but Kit Harington’s tastes are a bit more refined. The Game of Thrones actor has just become the new face of the Jimmy Choo Men’s Collection, E! reports.
Kit will star in the designer’s ad campaign for autumn/winter 2014, which should be a walk in the park for the actor, who’s used to donning warm clothes at the Wall. “Kit perfectly embodies the Jimmy Choo man,” Creative Director Sandra Choi says. “He has a natural and alluring masculinity and an effortless sense of style. His cool attitude and smoldering sensuality belie a true British gentleman.”
For his part, Kit seems psyched for the opportunity. “I was very excited to be chosen as the face for such a highly regarded brand and to play a role in defining who the Jimmy Choo man is.”
Kit’s star continues to rise, and while the campaign is Kit’s first with a major fashion brand, he’s hardly the only star in Jimmy Choo’s stable. Nicole Kidman is the current face of the brand’s women’s line. Maybe the two could costar in a movie sometime in the near future? We would totally be OK with that!
