Kelly Ripa is happy to recycle her wardrobe. The “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host might have turned heads in a jaw-dropping strapless black gown at the 2020 Oscars this weekend, but it’s back to the day job for this 49-year-old. For Kelly, that means returning to the daytime TV looks, although with designer brands galore, the star’s wardrobe is hardly mismatched sweats.
Kelly has revealed a clothing item she’s worn more times than she can count. It appeared during her Tuesday outfit showcasing – fans of “Live!” will known that the series’ Instagram posts regular videos of Kelly documenting her look of the day.
Kelly was looking absolutely sensational. The blonde was talking fans through her cobalt blue and pleated vegan leather skirt, also covering the rest of the outfit – Kelly was fully color-coordinated, wearing a dark blue sweater and a sky-high pair of electric blue heels matching her sweater.
“I like this skirt. This is the vegan leather skirt,” Kelly began, before being informed that the pleats are known as “accordion” ones.
Talk then shifted to Kelly’s Proenza Schouler sweater.
“I’ve worn this sweater like, 900 times,” Kelly said, speaking into the camera.
While the voice in the background claimed that it had never dressed Kelly in it, the blonde confirmed that she wears it all the time, by choice.
“I know, but I’ve personally have worn it,” Kelly said.
The video racked up likes and views fairly quickly. While engagement on the “Live!” Instagram account is lower than on Kelly’s own, the series’ social media isn’t without its followers.
Fans left plenty of comments.
“Oh my goodness!! This is gorgeous on you @kellyripa ?,” one said.
“Those blues are beautiful ?,” another added.
A slightly critical comment, did, however come in.
“Nice but you need accessories,” the fan wrote.
Kelly is a known lover of Proenza Schouler – and of Gianvito Rossi shoes. The brand was donned in this video.
Keep it real she might, but Kelly will admit to the fakery. The star made headlines after the Oscars for fully admitting that “everything” about her look was fake. The star wore full body makeup, also letting fans know that every aspect of her glam was, indeed, fake.
“Look at me, listen to me,” she had said, adding:
“Every part is fake, none of this is reality, except for this ring. It’s all body makeup, fake hair, fake lashes, the nose is contoured.”
Kelly and husband Mark Consuelos might be raising celeb kids, but the couple maintains a real approach. Speaking to People, Kelly and Mark revealed what style advice they are giving Lola, Joaquin, and Michael.
“It’s a cliché, but beauty is really something that comes from the inside. And our kids get that,” 48-year-old Mark said.
Meanwhile, Kelly added: “They’ve been to enough photoshoots and been on Instagram long enough to know how much can be faked and filtered and altered and so they aren’t fooled by what a picture tells you you should look like. That’s not real beauty.”
