Kelly Ripa just dished on her rather unusual secret to getting the tiniest waist around. The 49-year-old talk show queen is currently making big headlines for finally returning to the “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” set after months of video-streaming her daily show with co-host Ryan Seacrest – Kelly marked her arrival back on-set with a joking full hazmat suit, but the blonde was back in her designer dress-and-heels look in no time.
The “Live!” Instagram account has shared a new video. Check it out below.
Scrollfor the video. The above photo was shared to Kelly’s personal Instagram on Tuesday as the mom of three swathed her pint-sized frame in a yellow boiler suit and World War II-style gas mask, plus blue latex gloves. Ryan, wearing the exact same look, was next to her.
The video kicked off with Kelly in familiar surroundings and rocking a super-stylish, pale pink dress from Cynthia Rowley. The puff-sleeved and shoulder-padded print dress came paired with Kelly’s signature sky-high stilettos, with a caption reading: “#KellysFashionFinder! Cynthia Rowley dress and Gianvito Rossi heels.”
Kelly, also flashing her big smile, was filmed speaking into the camera.
“Hello everyone! I’m wearing… oh, what am I wearing?” she began, then promptly reminded of the designer. “Cynthia Rowley!” Kelly exclaimed, quickly remembering.
“And uh, Gianvito Rossi shoes. A little color, a giant bold shoulder. If you’re shoulders are big, your waist looks smaller. They say…I’m not sure, you’ll have to tell me.”
Kelly hasn’t posted a Fashion Finder in months. Fans following “Live” haven’t forgotten the account, though, and they’ve been replying.
Kelly, who remains teeny-tiny and recently told fans her abs had “left the building” in a bikini shot, now sees fans telling her she doesn’t need the big-shouldered look.
“You’re freaking tiny don’t need the illusion!” one fan wrote, with another replying that Kelly is “very petite in person.” The thought was echoed by another user, who wrote: “Your body is so incredible.”
The comments didn’t end there. In fact, one fan wondered if Kelly had had a few drinks: “Have you been drinking? LOL,” they wrote. More below.
Kelly, who currently fronts Persona Nutrition vitamins and this year made headlines for revealing she’s alcohol-free, is a follower of the alkaline diet. The “All My Children” alum is into salads and balanced meals, but she’s stated that it isn’t a giant headache for her.
“I eat a very clean diet. I have lots of vegetables, I eat protein, but I really don’t put a ton of thought into it. It’s everything you’ve read about or heard about in any diet book – don’t eat too much crap, and I don’t.”
