Jon Gries, known for his role as Greg Hunt in the HBO series “The White Lotus,” surprised attendees at New York Fashion Week with his catwalk debut for the Eckhaus Latta’s fall 2023 ready-to-wear collection. Gries, 65 years old, strutted down the runway at the historic Essex Market in a mohair-style sweater and beige pants. The Men in Black actor took to social media to share clips from the show and jokes about his participation in the event. His appearance at NYFW comes after another “The White Lotus” star, Stefano Gianino, walked the runway at Paris Fashion Week.


Gries is best known for his role as Greg Hunt, husband of Jennifer Coolidge’s character in the dark comedy series “The White Lotus.” The actor reprised his role in the show’s second season, which premiered in July 2021. Although “The White Lotus” is an anthology series, creator Mike White brought back Gries and Coolidge to serve as the connective tissue between the two seasons. The return of the two characters, particularly Coolidge’s, was much expected by fans of the show. In season 2, Gries’ character orchestrated the death of Coolidge’s character.
Gries’ foray into the fashion world began with his surprise appearance at the Eckhaus Latta’s fashion show. His appearance at NYFW is a testament to his versatility as an actor and his ability to expand his range beyond the small screen. The 65-year-old star wowed the audience with his confident stride, best smile, and trendy outfit. His appearance is expected to inspire other actors to take risks and step out of their comfort zones.


Besides Gries’ appearance, Stefano Gianino, who portrayed Niccolò on “The White Lotus” season 2, also made his runway debut at Paris Fashion Week. The actor posted a photo of himself from Louis-Gabriel Nouchi’s show, expressing his excitement at the experience. Gianino’s appearance at Paris Fashion Week and Gries’ debut at NYFW underscore the influence of “The White Lotus” on popular culture.
Jon Gries’ modeling debut at New York Fashion Week is a testament to his versatility and willingness to step outside his comfort zone. The surprise appearance also highlights the impact of “The White Lotus” on the entertainment industry, as fans of the show eagerly expect its next installment. With another of the show’s stars making an appearance at Paris Fashion Week, the show’s influence extends beyond the realm of television.
