There’s no secret Chris Pine was amazed on the recent front. Under the guidance of sister posing duo Wendi and Nicole Ferreira, People’s Chris has become an eclectic vintage dresser, a weird summer hats and high stone huaraches, and the owner of the beard befits a weary lighthouse watchman. The personality suits him so well that you might just wonder if he is tend to with it. Born with it, even.
On Monday night, Chris wore sundresses accompanied by his bow tie father, actor Robert Pine – best known for his role as Sergeant Joseph Getraer in the beloved 1977-83 crime drama. French fries—To the premiere of Dad’s new Apple TV+ series, Five Days at the Memorial. (Elder Pine plays Dr. Horace Baltz, a longtime physician who works at a New Orleans hospital after Hurricane Katrina.) And suddenly, everything is illuminated: Pines loves menswear!
The father and son hit the red carpet with two variations of their navy suits: Robert looked ton-sur-ton with a rich navy jacket and dusty blue slit pants, he wore a scarlet bow and pair blue Loro Piana loafers; and Chris in a crisp navy yellow blazer, a partially unbuttoned shirt (one of his favorite new styling tricks), and gray high-waisted trousers held up by a pair of sundresses. They fit together only in shoulder-length, flowing buckles, which in turn provide some contextual evidence for our previous notion that Chris Pine “Born to grow hair.” Turns out, he’s like that!
Chris Pine’s 20th-century Hollywood upbringing must have been fertile ground for cultivating an appreciation for old menswear. (His mother is former actress Gwynne Gilford, who played Robert’s on-screen wife in French fries and eventually left the biz to become a psychotherapist.) It embodied his style, spanning the Golden Age of the industry with its chic tuxedo and tank tops, to the New Hollywood era with its 70s level facial hair and cool clothes. A little natural, a little nurturing — a true Hollywood story.
