Anderson Cooper on the Late Show with David Letterman

Posted on August 28, 2013

And now, a moment. With Anderson Cooper.


Anderson Cooper makes an appearance on the “Late Show with David Letterman” in New York City.

We’re going to chalk up the bizarre right sleeve to having just gotten out of a limo or something like that. We can’t imagine his suit is that badly tailored. Otherwise, he looks perfectly acceptable in that Anderson Cooper kind of way. We dig the purple tie. We’re envious of his glowing skin.

The suit’s kinda shiny, no?

    It’s really, REALLY hard not to love him. SIGH!

    • ChattyCara

      Saw him once in ATL and he was wearing those dorky black glasses of his (which I LOVE). If my friend hadn’t held me back (Bitch!), I’m pretty sure there’d be a restraining order against me now.

    • Clueless_Jock

      I met him in DC once. Very nice guy, very unassuming and quite funny.

    • Stacy Feng

      I’d fight Stefon for him.

  • alyce1213

    He always looks nice. Mama taught him well. He’s adorable, so I forgive the clunky banker shoes.

    • formerlyAnon

      I kind of love the shoes, in a “they’re Dad shoes, so dorky cute!” way.

      • alyce1213

        Oh, most definitely Dad shoes. It’s not that I don’t like Dad shoes, I’d just like to see him in something more modern and sleek.

      • Beardslee

        And they are beautifully polished, another plus.

    • MasterandServant

      Ha! My first thought was, “oh my God, those are the shoes I made my husband throw out when we first started dating!”

  • AmeliaEve

    What’s with the cop shoes, Andy?

    • Betsy

      Or Corfam military dress shoes. Soles are too thick, and the flange extends out too far. Not a good look. Needs a pair of Ferragamos to finish this look off to perfection!

  • formerlyAnon

    I have to go on record that, since I take his usual excellent grooming without any exotic flair for granted, that I actually love his dorky-cute Dad-goes-to-work shoes on him.

  • Jacquelyn

    Silver Haired Fox! Love that purple tie, it really suits him.

  • Karen Belgrad

    That is the best-est tie dimple in history 🙂

    • leilah

      Oooh, damn–that tie dimple is making me a little … warm …

  • capybara_cafe

    There’s something about his shoes that’s bugging me, but I can’t figure out what it is. Love the tie.

    • kimmeister

      The fact that they’re basically Doc Martens without the obvious stitches?

  • mjude

    he is just a doll.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    So cute! Love the tie and the dad shoes!

  • boldprint

    I’ll spend a few moments with Anderson Cooper, if you know what I mean.

  • AnguaVonUberwald

    Sigh. I have loved him since Channel One in high school in the early nineties.

  • Tatiana Luján

    Anderson Cooper and his too tight jacket went into a bar…

  • flamingoNW

    Wow, he looks great. Fantastic.

  • Le_Sigh

    Wha…? Oh sorry, I got distracted by his Silver Foxiness that I kind of forgot about the clothes.

  • MilaXX

    He’s cute. Yes the suit is a little shiny, but not obnoxiously so.

  • (raises hand) I have a question. What material is that suit made of? It looks awfully synthetic. Do not like.

    • Erica_Vuitton

      I think its waxed makes fabric stiff and shiny.

    • JDreesen

      i think that’s what new clothes look like

      i mean, i’ve *heard* that’s how they look. i don’t actually have any firsthand experience.

  • Love Anderson, but not fond of the suit fabric — shiny, wrinkly and puckery.

    Because of his pedigree, we expect perfection from him.

  • Rand Ortega

    Sharp as a tack, as my Dad used to say. Love the infusion of tie color.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    Mah Boo. Sigh. I really, really love his hair.

  • Getoverit

    Love the purple tie, not digging the shiny suit.

  • Wendi126

    He reminds me of a white Persian cat. I’m glad he’s wearing anything…60 minutes this week showed him deep in the water with huge crocodiles in Africa. He is pretty fearless. And fierce

  • Kent Roby

    I REALLY love AC and his entire look here, but I also wish he’d occasionally loosen up a bit for these types of appearances. I’d love to see him rock a “dressy casual” look, with just-tight-enough dress pants and a just-clingy-enough collared silk pullover. But, again, don’t get me wrong: I find NO fault with his look here.

    • Imasewsure

      I think he was raised in a suit, and will die in a suit…. bet he has a closet full of cashmere sweaters though….

  • Sunraya

    Yeah, I was wondering aout the shiny suit, too! Weird!

  • kimmeister

    He looks like a younger version of Bruce Willis, but with hair. Or a less craggy version of Daniel Craig.

  • Kate4queen

    I just love him to bits.

  • Miss WKS

    Absolutely gorgeous.
    (and his suit is nice too.)

  • Imasewsure

    Suit is too shiny for the harsh light of day but probably looked good on camera. Have loved him since his World News Now stint (3am news program on ABC which he co-anchored most of the time with his dog).

  • Shawn EH

    He always looks like a precocious adolescent to me.

  • Frank_821

    He’s absolutely smoldering waves of testosterone in that 2nd picture.

    Actually he has done casual in public. He made a “surprise” visit on the after show of Watch What Happens Live during pride week when Andy Cohen had Cher on. AC was gushing as a good gay boy should

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    He is one good-lookin’ sumbich.

  • quiltrx

    I think the suit would look fine in regular lighting–it’s super-sunny out there!
    And Anderson? Well, RAWR as usual…so hot! And the purple tie with the perfect “vicious v” dimple just tops it off perfectly.

  • He is ridiculously attractive.

  • marlie

    I do lurve him so. But the suit is a skosh too shiny for my taste. He should just take it off. Lovely purple tie, though.

  • bertkeeter

    Doesn’t he EVER spend the night at home…just chilling?

  • MzzPants

    Perfect tie dimple.

  • Lilithcat

    The suit is way too shiny, and the jacket seems a bit tight.
