Kelly Ripa‘s tiny, float-effect minidress even had the coffee guy sending the thumbs-up today. The 49-year-old talk show queen, known for having the best legs on TV, put her famous and super-slim pins on show in a sky-high pair of yellow stilettos as she made her way onto the “Live!” set on Monday.
Cameras over on “Live!” catch the whole deal, though, with the backstage hallway footage seeing the former “All My Children” actress chatting about her dress and getting compliments from the guy serving everyone coffee. Check it out below.
Scroll for the video – you’ve just had a sneak peek at the Zadig & Voltaire dress Kelly needed opinions on – and she got them.
Kelly, recently dubbed a “drama queen” for not being too excited as co-host Ryan Seacrest returned after time off sick, was in good spirits for this video. The blonde, parading her killer figure in the shirt-dress boasting red-and-black prints, briefly paused backstage – “That’s what I’m wearing. We’re trying to say it in French,” Kelly began.
Vide is below. Kelly, attempting to pronounce Zadig & Voltaire, then continued, seen speaking to Kadeem, a masked crew member who regularly offers Ripa and 45-year-old Seacrest their morning cups.
“You like it??” Kelly exclaimed, seeming to get a yes from Kadeem. The pint-sized blonde then kidded that if Kadeem doesn’t like her dress, she’ll burn it – “That’s not true, I only burn it if I own it,” Kelly then joked. If she “borrowed” it, she won’t burn it. Chit-chat aside, the mom of three then got not one, but two thumbs-up from the dress she called a “keeper.” And Kadeem was saying Y-E-S. More after the jump.
Kelly might have made headlines for holding down the fort as Ryan was sick, but the star has been in the news for her wardrobe this month – and no, not the full hazmat suit and World War II-style gas mask she jokingly wore to mark 180 days of video-streamed episodes ending.
As The Blast reported, Kelly straight-up admitted that her chic black pants were “too tight” this month, saying she could “barely” get them on. And this is from the girl who’ll happily be photographed covered in bread loaves and with no pants.
Kelly and Ryan marked the end of their quarantine-set videos and the return to the familiar set earlier this month.
“It’s gonna be a minute, because we are used to shooting the show through a computer screen,” Kelly said, although she did joke she wouldn’t return to the stage if she had to wear pants. Seacrest, meanwhile, admitted he’d basically lost the knack: “When we started going through our computer screens at home, I got so used to it, I forgot how to do this.”
