Kelly Ripa, this year admitting her pants were “too tight,” is back to pushing the limits with her wardrobe. The 50-year-old talk show queen today offered “Live!” viewers a sneak peek at her impossibly-stylish dress, with the syndicated talk show filming the blonde just before the cameras aired her for real. Kelly, fresh from both her October 2 birthday and celebrating 30 years with Walt Disney Co., was proving that tight does it just fine, but the former “All My Children” actress did appear to struggle. Check it out below.
Scroll for the video. If you aren’t familiar with the setup, Kelly’s mostly-designer looks are documented on the “Live!” Instagram via its #KellysFashionFinder – mostly bringing the blonde talking fans through her outfits, the hashtag will also populate brands including Gucci, Prada, Zimmerman, and Zadig & Voltaire.
Today’s video, simply seeing Kelly and masked crew prepping to go live, showed the mom of three making her way towards the desk she shares with 45-year-old co-host Ryan Seacrest – the “American Idol” host approached the stage from a different direction.
Keep scrolling for more photos. Kelly, seen shimmying across the stage and somewhat compromised by her back-zipped and super-tight blue dress, nonetheless managed to ace it, also rocking her signature sky-high stilettos.
“Tune in now!” the show wrote, with today bringing 50-year-old Tamron Hall as guest.
Kelly is also fresh from a major workout headline just last night. A bedroom video seeing the blonde joke that her room is her “gym” offered fans a peek into her jaw-dropping $27 million NYC townhouse, plus how she stays looking so good.
Kelly, who called her body a “Peter Pan” one in 2019, showed her 2.8 million Instagram followers that power bodies don’t maintain themselves. Fans saw her in tight black spandex leggings and a crop top while deep squatting with hand-held weights – “ALL IN. FULL OUT,” the star wrote, adding: “Welcome to the bedroom/gym.”
Kelly this year revealed she is alcohol free, with a food diary prompted by Harper’z Bazaar seeing Ripa reveal exactly what she eats. The Starbucks-loving star, despite her age, is into trends 20-somethings adore.
Kelly documented a super-healthy breakfast of oatmeal with almond butter and chopped apple. Alongside “microfoods” salads, the star then dished on one of her biggest loves.
“The avocado toast kick of 2015 to 2017 was two years where avocado toast was pretty much the foundation of my diet,” she said, adding:
“And I had it with just about every meal. Sometimes, I would fry an egg and add that on top. Sometimes, a piece of cheese would accompany the avocado toast. But the avocado toast was a real staple of my diet.”
