Narciso Rodriguez arrived at the CFDA Fashion Awards last night with Claire Danes on his arm, modeling a gorgeous form-fitting creation he designed just for her. Although the dress she wore last night was black, Rodriguez will soon be tasked with designing the dress for Danes's white wedding.
Danes, 29, and British actor Hugh Dancy, 33, met while filming Evening and dated for more than a year before becoming engaged in February. Although it is unsure when the duo plan on tying the knot, Claire is 100 percent certain about the fact that Rodriguez is going to be successful in creating her dream dress. When People.com inquired about the process, the actress said, "I get weepy ... more emotional than I was expecting. It’s intimate." And when asked about the challenge of working with Rodriguez due to their close relationship, Danes rebuffed the notion, saying, "It’s amazing. 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."
Sounds like Claire is going to sit back and allow Rodriguez to work his magic. As for taking on the task of dressing his friend on the most important day of her life, Rodriguez is unfazed. “She’s an extraordinary woman, inside and out. That always comes through. You can’t hide it. I just try to make her look more beautiful,” he said of designing for Danes. “And it’s not hard to make her look beautiful.”
