Entourage star Emmanuelle Chriqui descended upon the scene in custom David Meister at last night’s CFDA Awards in New York, creating a show-stopping moment months in the making. Before so much as a discussion about concept, Meister sent the star a sketch of a “very bare, very sexy” silhouette in “bright, bright yellow,” he tells PEOPLE exclusively. “We both agreed on the color,” Chriqui adds. “We were basically on the same page from the beginning. It’s glamorous, while being sexy and fresh at the same time. It’s amazing.” For Chriqui, the look was about one thing: the dress. “I’m not a huge accessory person,” she says, and it showed: she let the body-hugging design pop against complementary amethyst sandals, bronze-enhancing hoops and a Kelly Locke clutch. Meister, who counts Jennifer Aniston‘s timeless style among his inspirations agrees that a look’s kiss of death is “too much dress.” Hence, Chriqui’s short hemline. “She’s a great date to have,” he tells PEOPLE. “Not only does she look great, we have a great time.” And Chriqui, who says she is “intrigued” by the prestigious ceremony, might even join Meister as a CFDA member one day. “I could see definitely sort of collaborating somewhere along the way,” she shares. “I’m not sure when, but it could definitely be a part of life.” Tell us: What do you think of Chriqui’s custom David Meister look? –Justine Harman
