Kelly Ripa hit bombshell status this week – seemingly in a dress so comfortable, she likened it to wearing a sweatsuit or a bathrobe. The "Live! With Kelly and Ryan" host is a regular when it comes to documenting her fashionista looks over on the series' Instagram, with a new video of Kelly in a dressing room appearing to do just this.

For clarity, the dress donned by the 49-year-old was anything but a sweatsuit. It was glam as they come, accessorized by high heels, and doing wonders for this super-fit star's tiny waistline.

Check out the video here.

'Everybody Loves This Dress'

Kelly was in a backstage room and with two females as she took fans through her outfit. The blonde might not have been flaunting her killer legs – the dress was a maxi one – but she hadn't held back on picking a number that made her look a million bucks.

Kelly's navy satin dress was pleated, super-slinky, and, as the star herself revealed, a "post-Oscars" one as she wore it to last year's awards ceremony. Kelly paired her dress with Gianvito Rossi heels in electric blue, also taking a moment to focus on the footwear amid all the dress talk.

"Everyone loves this dress," the star said.

Kelly's belted dress did, indeed, look like it might be comfortable. Kelly herself closed her eyes as she related what she liked the most about it.

"It is SO comfortable," she said, adding that it felt like "a sweatsuit or a bathrobe."

"Only it looks elegant," she continued.

As to the footwear, Kelly revealed she wished she'd gotten "four pairs."

Overall, Kelly was looking her usual sensational self. The star's wavy blonde hair was worn down for a slightly-curled and bombshell finish, with the mom of three also wearing a full face of makeup.

The Dresses That Do Flaunt The Legs – And The Workouts Behind Them

Kelly is known for her trademark mini dresses. The morning show host regularly appears in thigh-skimming numbers as she joins co-host Ryan Seacrest on the set of "Live!," and Kelly herself has opened up about her workouts.

"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 told The Cut in January 2019.

Kelly gets to call the age-defying card. Ultra-youthful and ultra-energetic, this star is pumped in virtually every TV appearance, and she's even admitted to having a body that defies all logic.

"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," she added in her interview.
