Your Mom Is Scarier Than Anna Wintour

Vanity Fair and 60 Minutes joined forces to poll the general population about their fashion feelings. It seems that when it comes to Vogue superstars, Americans are kind of apathetic: 72 percent of Americans don't know who André Leon Talley is, while 6 percent thought his capes suggested he was a famous lion-tamer. (A quick unofficial Cut poll suggests that 100 percent of America wishes that were true.)

When asked, "Who would you least want to critique your outfit?" poll-takers revealed they are more afraid of what their mothers would say about their crop tops than what Anna Wintour would. (Significant others and Joan Rivers are also scarier than Anna.) This, however, does not surprise me — nobody can deliver a "you're wearing that?" with a more soul-crushing result than mommy dearest.
