    If given the opportunity how would you style Kate Middleton?
    ​I actually think she’s doing an incredible job. I love that she repeats outfits. I love the designers she wears. I think she has the perfect mix of not being pretentious and being as approachable as possible. I would love for her to have kind of like a great tuxedo moment though. I think that would be so chic.

    What advice will you give Skyler when he starts dating?
    ​She’s not good enough for you! [laughs] No girl will ever be good enough. In all seriousness, I would say—and we’ve taught him this since he was a year old—treat women with respect, and you know, always open the door and be a gentleman.
