When Claire Danes walks the aisle to meet Hugh Dancy in a storybook Hollywood wedding, the bride will be wearing a gown designed by her longtime friend Narciso Rodriguez. Danes arrived at the CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday night at Alice Tully Hall in New York on the arm of Rodriguez, saying that as a date, she finds the designer “very cheeky and playful and funny, kind and dear . . . one of my dear friends. Any excuse to hang out with him is welcome,” she said. In fact, she trusts Rodriguez so implicitly, she tells PEOPLE that she’s asked him to create her wedding dress. “He’s making it. I get weepy. .. more emotional than I was expecting,” she said of the process. “It’s intimate.” But is it easy working with a friend? “It’s amazing,” said Danes. “I’m so privileged. I’m collaborating a little bit, but I’m just trusting him implicitly. I’m offing my ideas, but they always pale in comparison to his.” While Danes was in a body-hugging black dress designed by Narciso for her, she indicated that “yes”, she will be wearing white for her wedding day. As for Narciso, he had nothing but praise for his star client. “She’s an extraordinary woman inside and out,” he said of designing for Danes. “That always comes through. You can’t hide it. I just try to make her look more beautiful,” he said. “And it’s not hard to make her look beautiful.” And let’s not forget that he has a little bit of experience dressing beautiful blonde brides, having famously designed Caroline Bessette Kennedy’s dress for her 1996 wedding to John F. Kennedy Jr., which instantly placed the designer on international fashion map. –Jeffrey Slonim
