(Getty Images) Anderson Cooper
has covered war scenes, natural disasters and royal weddings, but the thing that really makes him shake in his boots? A bad review from Women's Wear Daily
At first, Anderson wasn't enthusiastic about hosting Monday's CFDA Fashion Awards and hesitated when asked to by Diane von Furstenberg
. She reminded him of all the world events he's covered as a journalist for CNN and wondered what could possible be scarier than that. Anderson says: What could be scarier than those situations? Of course, I said being reviewed by Women’s Wear Daily.
Luckily for Anderson, WWD
gave him a rave review and a solid A mark. The breakdown of his final score is this: a B+ for opening with self-deprecation; an A+ for immediately pulling the cute yet relevant card — a slideshow of endearingly embarrassing childhood modeling photos that exposed an 11-year-old Cooper with “Ted Koppel hair” in “superdorky” clothes looking like “a girl from ‘Little House on the Prairie,’” and a B for leaving us wanting more.
See Anderson, fashion people don't bite!
