Kelly Ripa fully acknowledged that her body isn’t the standard today. The “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host is known for her pint-sized and ultra-ripped frame – then again, with that shirtless and sweaty workout video, the latter also applies to 48-year-old husband Mark Consuelos.
Kelly has appeared in a new video posted to the “Live!” series’ Instagram. The 49-year-old regularly features in outfit-of-the-day videos – nearly all showcase the blonde’s sense of humor alongside her stylish looks, with this video ticking boxes for both.
Kelly’s video showed her admiring her printed and partly sheer Erdem dress. The star was seen in a backstage dressing room as she admired her look, with the chic and floral-vibe dress also having been accessorized by a pair of high heels in yellow.
Kelly was shot from the front as her stylist discussed the brand, with Kelly then saying that she “loves” the dress – the star then moved onto talking about how it would look on other people.
“I believe that on a regular-armed person, this is a short-sleeved dress, but on me… it’s a three-quarter sleeve.”
The “Live!” account has lower engagement compared to Kelly’s own Instagram, where 2.7 million individuals are subscribed to the account, but the show’s social media fans are there. For the most part, fans thought that Kelly looked gorgeous, with early replies appearing to see fans comment more on Kelly’s style than her “arm” mention.
“Gorgeous as always,” one fan wrote.
“Perfect,” another said.
A less-flattering remark did, however, come in.
“Oh what a surprise it’s Kelly admiring herself again. So much more important things. Thank you Ryan for keeping it real. I couldn’t watch if it wasn’t for you !!!!” the user wrote.
The dresses might be designer as Kelly appears on-set, but not all aspects of the star’s life come with a high price tag. Kelly recently opened up to NY Mag about her must-have products, revealing that she buys Dove soap ($4 on Amazon), and has been doing so for decades.
“I started using it when I got a sample in the hospital right before I brought home my son, Michael, who is now 22 years old. Before you leave, they hand you your baby and a leaflet about how to care for your baby. Seriously, a leaflet,” Kelly said.
“Even if I’m staying in the most luxurious hotel that gives you all the fancy soaps and shampoos, I bring my own bar of Dove soap. It just sets my mind right. It’s the best,” Kelly continued.
The star’s must-haves also included $16 Alcone Makeup wipes, with Kelly saying that back in the day, nobody was ever encouraged to remove their makeup.
“The older you get, your skin becomes like a piece of paper, so you want to really be gentle with it,” the star concluded as she wished she’d been told to take off her makeup in younger years.
