James Corden on Hosting the CFDAs and Why Late Night TV Is Romantic

Fashion might not be what first comes to mind when you think of James Corden, the British funnyman who’s recently taken over The Late Late Show on CBS and has serious acting clout from performances on both screen and stage. But when it was announced that he’d be hosting this year’s CFDA Awards on June 1, we knew he had to have at least a few sartorial tricks up his sleeve. After all, being funny alone probably wouldn’t cut it!

Well, we had the chance to chat with the Tony Award–winning actor, and it turns out he’s not only well versed in the crème de la crème of menswear—he really enjoys fashion, too. That said, he stressed not having a clue what to do for the CFDAs, but given his überwitty and charming personality (this interviewer became an instant #fangirl), we have total faith that he’ll have the whole room in tears.

Scroll down to find out why Corden will be extra nervous for the CFDAs and how he convinces tons of celebrities to goof around on his show.
