Though the wardrobe budget for Gilles Marini in Sex and the City wouldn't cover a subway ride, the handsome, French actor-model – who appears as Samantha's usually nude Malibu neighbor, Dante, in the movie – showed up in New York's Rockefeller Plaza Thursday morning decked out in a well-tailored, dark suit.
"I am so blessed," Marini, 32, said on the Today show. "It's overwhelming ... I mean, look at this."
He was referring to the crowd that had gathered outdoors to see his interview.

The record-breaking $55.7 million earned by Sex and the City on its opening weekend – the most ever made by an R-rated comedy – not only stunned industry observers but has also taken its star and producer Sarah Jessica Parker by surprise.
"To be No. 1 is unexpected," Parker, 43, told PEOPLE at Sunday night's MTV Movie Awards. "Beyond that, it would be greedy for us to think about, talk about" how much it might make.
The weekend's second-place movie, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, has so far taken in $216.9 million. This weekend, it trailed Sex with a still impressive $46 million at the box office, according to industry estimates.
As for fans' reactions to her movie, which comes four years after the adored HBO series finished a run that began in 1998, Parker says she is pleased. "They had to have barricades in New York for the audiences," she notes. "People have been really enthusiastic, people have been really nice."

The New York premiere may have kicked off at 6 p.m., but the cast and crew of Sex and the City: The Movie partied 'til three in the morning, with two after parties!
After Sex's big New York homecoming at the Radio City Music Hall and an after party at the Museum of Modern Art, the film's inner circle – including Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Jason Lewis and director Michael Patrick King – celebrated the night away at an exclusive after-after party at The Carlyle hotel.
Around midnight, with husband Matthew Broderick, Parker escaped the MOMA, arriving at the hotel's legendary Bemelmans Bar, which she requested (she had her honeymoon at The Carlyle in 1997). They intimately enjoyed cocktails and mini-burgers before the arrival of some of Parker's closest friends and colleagues.

The Sex and the City foursome created a fashion and film sensation on the pink carpet outside New York's Radio City Music Hall for the U.S. premiere of their movie Tuesday night.
"The best part about making the movie was being back with the women on the set all day every day, and the best part about tonight is being here ... with the fans," Sarah Jessica Parker said as the crowds squealed and waved around her.
Parker wore a glamorous Nina Ricci gown, complemented with dazzling Fred Leighton jewels, as did Kristin Davis, who donned Donna Karan and 19th Century diamonds. Cynthia Nixon chose a Narciso Rodriguez dress, and Kim Cattrall embodied her inner "Samantha" in a low-cut, beaded Vivienne Westwood cocktail dress.

Sex and the City is the ultimate New York movie. So where better place to have its premiere than ... London?
"Well, this is where our bosses told us to go and we are thrilled to do so," said star Sarah Jessica Parker at Monday night's event in Leicester Square. "And I think it is a wonderful kick off for this. In a few weeks, we get to bring it home to America to its birthplace."
Adds costar Kim Cattrall: "When I found out it was London, I was ecstatic. This is my sort of home away from home. I love New York, I live there, but I have this amazing affair with the U.K."
