And though his high-fashion frocks would look lovely on the newlywed, Siriano wouldn’t go too crazy if given the chance to dress her.
“I think she has become so chic and classic and sophisticated, and I would want to keep it that way,” he told PEOPLE recently at Waterford’s Live a Crystal Life party in New York. “That’s what I think is great about her — she’s not a daring [risk] taker but what she wears is beautiful and elegant. She makes it look very effortless, too, which I really like. I think that women should dress that way.”
While he hasn’t dressed Kate yet, there is one Kat he recently designed for: Katniss Everdeen, heroine of The Hunger Games trilogy. “I haven’t [read the books],” he admitted. “But everyone in my office has. So when I had to do this sketch, they had to explain to me the big scene, because I was like, ‘I don’t understand.’ They were telling me the story and everyone in the office was like, ‘Oh my god, it is amazing, you have to read every book.'”
So is the series on the star’s reading list? “I kind of have to read it now,” he said. “Maybe over the holidays I will.”
