Kelly Ripa Calls Her '70s Dress 'Groovy' In Stilettos Showoff

By Rebecca Cukier

"I think it's groovy." Kelly Ripa wasn't above giving her multicolor "Brady Bunch" dress top marks today – the 49-year-old was also in mighty-high spirits as she showed off a very 70s-style look ahead of the Tuesday "Live!" airing. The talk show queen, still in the news for holding down the fort while co-host Ryan Seacrest was sick, has appeared in a brand new #KellysFashionFinger video. "Live!" captures every aspect of Kelly and Ryan's morning shows – just yesterday, Kadeem the coffee guy was giving Kelly two thumbs-up for her minidress.

Another day, another look. Check out the latest one below.

'I Think It's Groovy!'

Scroll for the video. Kelly, who has been rocking high-end Gucci of late, had opted for another European designer. This time, the Belgian-based Essential Antwerp label. The former "All My Children" actress was filmed backstage and slipped into the geometric-print, pink, green, and olive number – Shopbop might have been mentioned, but the dress retails for a steep $322.

"Hi everybody," Kelly said, continuing: "This is Essential from Shopbop. I think it's groovy! Very Carol Brady," as she shouted out iconic 1969-1974 sitcom "The Brady Bunch."

Fans Want Her In A 'Brady Bunch' Reboot


Kelly, herself a television star back in the day, now sees fans eyeing her up for a "Brady Bunch" reboot, although it's worth noting that responses were mixed – not everyone is a fan of Kelly rocking up to the set every day in luxury brands.

"Kelly should play Carol Brady in a Brady Bunch re-boot!" one fan wrote, proving more enthusiastic than the user replying:

"Has anyone looked at the prices? $475 pajama tops and $495 pajama pants. Earth to Kelly..."

High-End Tastes, But Pants Can Be 'Too Tight'

Keep scrolling for the video. Kelly, whose "Live!" salary is reported to be in the range of $20 million a year, has definitely been proving that she's got fine taste in fashion. Just this week, the blonde struggled to pronounce designer Zadig & Voltaire, although the Gianvito Rossi stiletto brand Kelly adores now rolls of her tongue.

Kelly also isn't above admitting when the wardrobe gets tricky. September brought Kelly filmed from a 360-degree angle as she admitted that her snazzy black pants were "too tight" and that she struggled to put them on. More after the video.

Unique Way To End 180 Days Of Video Stream

Kelly and 45-year-old Ryan Seacrest started video-streaming their daily appearances back in March. The 180-day-long streak ended this month as the duo finally returned to set, with Kelly marking the return in true COVID style. Her Instagram photo showed a twinning hazmat suit deal with Ryan – both also wore latex gloves and World War II-style gas masks.

“It’s gonna be a minute, because we are used to shooting the show through a computer screen," Kelly said as she admitted the return might be tricky. Then again, the prankster joked she wouldn't return to "Live!" if she had to wear pants.
