Finishing his look with some designer stubble and ruffled hair, he capped it all off with a pair of designer polished brogues.
Mobbed by a horde of fans at the event, he took time from his busy schedule to indulge them in some smiley selfies.
A short time later he could be seen posing with his fellow cast-members, of which he's clearly proud of working alongside.
The eagerly-awaited TV series tells the story of orphan Lenny Belardo, who becomes the first American pope in history and turns out to be a man who shocks and surprises.

It opens with the newly appointed pope crawling out from under a pile of sleeping babies, only to reveal that the image was a dream.
On his first day in the job, the new pontiff demands Cherry Coke Zero at breakfast, scolds an elderly nun for kissing his forehead, bans the use of his image on merchandise and refuses to be properly seen or photographed in public, even when he delivers his inaugural homily.
Meanwhile, Diane Keaton plays a nun who had raised Lenny in an orphanage and becomes the pope's private secretary.
Keeping busy! Earlier in the day, Jude made a guest appearance on Italian TV show 'Che Tempo Che Fa' in Milan
Taking to the stage: Fabio Fazio, Silvio Orlando, Jude and Paolo Sorrentino
On the promo trail: Jude has clearly been working hard in advance of the show's release
Earlier in the day, Jude made a guest appearance on Italian TV show 'Che Tempo Che Fa' in Milan. Joined by Fabio Fazio, Silvio Orlando, and the show's director, Paolo Sorrentino, they were a powerhouse line-up.
Jude said he was thrilled to be given the opportunity to work with the Italian director, until it became clear that the character he was being asked to portray was that of a conservative, chain-smoking American pope named Pius XIII.
'Like a ton of bricks it landed on me that I had to play a pope and I didn't quite know where to go or what work to do to offer it some weight and believability,' Law told a press conference at the Venice film festival.
'But Paolo constantly reminded me that it was a piece about a man who happened to be the pope. Once I started approaching it from that point of view ... it started to come together.'
