Kelly Ripa is getting one very specific request, and it all started when she took to Instagram to send birthday wishes to her friend and makeup artist Kristofer Buckle.
The “Live With Kelly and Ryan!” host took to the platform on January 2, sharing a whopping ten photos of her various transformations over the years. Kelly’s snaps didn’t all feature the 49-year-old herself, but many did. Snaps included Kelly with a wavy and statement short bob, plus a Halloween pic of her as Morticia Addams.
A gushing caption from Kelly thanked her makeup artist.
“Happy birthday to @kristoferbuckle a true friend and artist. The only thing as BIG as your talent is your heart. You are one of a kind and i cherish you always! ♥️♥️♥️????????????,” she wrote.
Instagram seems to have zoomed in on the snaps showing Kelly with shorter hair. In fact, it’s all the comments section seems to be able to talk about.
“You seriously need to cut your hair!!!” one fan wrote.
“Cut your hair again! Soooo cute,” another said.
“Love you with the short hair. Any plans to go shorter in the near future?” was a comment continuing the theme.
“You should go short short again!” one user told the star.
Kelly’s Instagram photos might include throwbacks galore, but they do tend to show the talk show host’s trademark blonde locks.
They did over the New Year, but Kelly definitely went unusual to celebrate 2020 – the star updated her account wearing a bejeweled turban. And yes, that pic got its fair share of amusing comments, with one fan even asking if Kelly had gotten the headgear from rapper and ex to Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon.
FYI, that picture also had Instagram gushing as Kelly announced that New Year’s Eve 2019 was her 25th year with husband Mark Consuelos.
Kelly is 49 years old. She looks fricking incredible, and she’s even admitted that she has a bit of a “Peter Pan” body. Whether or not Kelly still uses botox isn’t known, but an interview back in 2014 did see the star admit to a little helping hand.
Kelly was being interviewed by Andy Cohen when he asked her what her must-have beauty product is.
“Botox. And that’s pretty much it,” Kelly said.
“Botox has changed my life. It’s cut my getting ready time in half,” she added.
Speaking to The Cut in January 2019, Kelly outlined her exercise routines – and the kind of body she has.
“I was talking to a cardiologist and he said to make sure your heart beats out of your chest every day. The more you exercise, the healthier it is. And I can be honest: My body looks like Peter Pan no matter what I do,” Kelly told the media outlet.
“I’ve never been a va-va-voom woman. I like to take AKT — which is cardio-based dance classes — about four to five days a week between 3 and 5 p.m. And I like to do SoulCycle on the weekends. In the summer, I like to run in Central Park because I think it’s so gorgeous,” she added.
Instagram wasn’t honing in on the sculpted shoulders today. Clearly, the platform just wants Kelly to lose inches in the hair department.
