Kelly Ripa‘s sense of humor can always be relied upon. The “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host has a knack for making almost everything funny, appearing to do just this on Thursday night as she showcased a stunning Dolce & Gabbana dress.
Kelly is a regular when it comes to showcasing her look of the day. Videos of the 49-year-old in a backstage dressing room are frequently posted to the “Live!” Instagram account. Not all, however, see the show’s host talking funerals – then lying on the floor to talk caskets.
Check out Kelly’s video here.
The video opened with Kelly admiring her Thursday dress. The star had gone both chic and upscale with her designer look, opting for a below-the-knee dress from Italian designer Dolce & Gabbana.
Kelly’s black dress was long-sleeved and shift like, also boasting leopard-print panels around the sleeves, neck, and down the middle. Kelly also rocked leopard-print stiletto heels to match her dress.
Kelly opened by professing her love of Dolce & Gabbana.
“People were going crazy over this,” Kelly said, before adding that she loves a little “Gabbana.” Finding the dress appropriate for all occasions, Kelly then threw out a curveball.
“Maybe THIS should be my funeral dress,” she said.
Kelly seemed willing to explore the funeral concept fully following her light-bulb moment. The blonde then lay down on the floor in a whimsical manner, jokingly stating that sometimes “when you lay down, everything looks amazing.”
Kelly then referred to closets “when you close it and the light goes off?”
The star then stated that for her casket, she wanted a setup whereby a light would come on when the casket lid was closed.
The video also showed Kelly examining her stunning look as she stood in front of a mirror.
Fans were quick to take to the comments section of the video. For the most part, fans thought Kelly looked great, although some mentions did come in over the casket talk.
“This is hysterical, I thought I was the only one who said this!” one fan wrote.
“No funeral dress, a brighter color dress with or without animal caler [sic] and belt. Your personality is bright and cheerful,” another said.
Meanwhile, one fan simply told the star that she would look amazing “in a paper sack.”
Kelly may well wait a long while before old age becomes an issue. This age-defying star recently showed off her super-fit body while jokingly “audition” dancing to Shakira ahead of the Super Bowl.
Kelly has also referred to her body as freakishly young.
“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 told The Cut in 2019.
