Christian credits his relationship with Dolce & Gabbana as the turning point in his career. In 2001 he was introduced to designers Domenico Dolce and Steffano Gabbana during fashion week in Milan, Italy. That same year he was offered a contract to represent the company as their underwear model, which led to one of three fragrance campaigns and two short movies, advertising the 'Classic Perfume' for men and a new fragrance for women, 'Sicily.' The short movies were directed by Giuseppe Tornatore, who won an Oscar for Cinema Paradiso in 1988, and starred Monica Bellucci and Fernanda Tavares.
