Stacy London (TLC's "What Not to Wear," author of "The Truth About Style") co-hosted Anderson Cooper's daytime talk show last week, and took the opportunity to school the Silver Fox on cat fashion.
During the segment, London presented Coops with an Opening Ceremony cat sweater, before proudly pulling on her own feline-inspired Markus Lupfer top. Anderson, who seemed quite sure he was being punked, repeatedly questioned the style guru on the legitimacy of the fashion choice ("Are cat sweaters a thing?"), to which she assured the anchor that they are "super chic," "crazy cool," and that she's "bringing sexy back to cat." Meow! (You can watch the full clip here. The cat sweater segment kicks in around the 9:00 minute mark).
London's Lupfer sweater is sold out across sites like Net-A-Porter and ASOS, but UK-based Austique still has some in stock. Cooper's embroidered sweater, inspired by a cat named Basil, is available in various colors and in men's and women's sizes from Opening Ceremony.
Meanwhile, the "Anderson Live" website is currently running a poll asking if the kitty sweater is a good look for the newsman. Unsurprisingly, 74.2% of respondents agree that he "looks good in black," while 25.8% (wrongly) believe he's "more of a dog sweater person."
