Oh, hi there! *shakes self out of trance* I was so locked in the steely gaze of Anderson Cooper's baby blues, dreaming about Sunday mornings making blackberry waffles together in plushy bathrobes, I almost forgot I needed to actually TYPE something about the guy... So Monday night, A. Coop (lest he be confused with the other similarly hot Cooper, B. Coop) played host to this year's CFDA Awards, commonly dubbed "the Oscars of fashion." Now, you might be thinking, "What is Anderson Cooper 360 doing emceeing a fashion event?" Well, you can check the attitude at the door, sweetheart, because you're talking about fashion ROYALTY here. Respect.
As the son of actress/artist/heiress/designer jean pioneer Gloria Vanderbilt, AC has fashion in his blood. Upon closer inspection, it's really not that hard to believe. The perfectly pressed Ralph Lauren Black Label suit with a tastefully skinny lapel? The impeccable knot in his dotted steel blue tie (which match his eyes EXACTLY btw)? And I challenge you to find anyone else on this planet who makes gray look THAT good. It all kind of makes you wonder why you didn't put two and two together before! But that isn't even the half of it. Anderson revealed that he has even MORE fashion cred than you could have ever imagined...
