Kelly Ripa snuck in a bombshell photo to her Instagram before the weekend, wowing her 3 million+ fans and even impressing 22-year-old daughter Lola Consuelos. The talk show queen, 52, threw it back to a 2004 shoot as she looked near-unrecognizable, posing in a slinky minidress and high heels while rocking massive bouffant hair. Jokingly referencing her "big hair" and "tiny dress" in her caption, Kelly delighted fans with her sense of humor, also gaining the approval of close friend and reality star Lisa Rinna.

'Big Hair' And 'Tiny Dress'

Scroll for the photo. Striking a fierce pose as she raised one leg onto a low coffee table, Kelly flaunted her jaw-dropping legs and tiny waist while modeling a skintight minidress with a mesh-netted layer covering it. Affording a nearly sheer finish as she drew the eye to the sparkly meshing covering her, the Live! host wowed in strappy high heels as she lifted both arms up, completing her show-stopping look with a faux fur jacket in white.

Going larger than life with blow-dried, '70s-style hair, Kelly nearly had her face dwarfed by her massive hairdo, but she still managed to deliver a sassy, mean gaze as she rocked eyeliner and a nude lip. The glam shot came from a 2004 shoot with Allure, something Kelly mentioned in her caption. "#fbf 2004 BIG HAIR TINY DRESS edition. Allure magazine cover shoot," she wrote.

"Wow" came in from daughter Lola. The "Divine Timing" singer even returned for a second comment as she told her mom: "You. Are. Everything." Meanwhile, former Bravo star Lisa left Kelly a fire emoji.

Killer Swimsuit Body At 52

This 2024 photo proves that Kelly doesn't need to resort to throwbacks. Enjoying a luxurious January vacation with husband Mark Consuelos, the star flaunted her pint-sized frame in a tight strapless swimsuit as she highlighted her fierce muscles, with fans also getting a reminder of actor Mark's ripped body. A "Captains Underpants" caption also proved popular as Kelly threw out her trademark sense of fun.

Fans more than noticed Kelly's figure. "Seriously?? This is my inspiration for losing the 15 lbs I gained over the holidays… ," one user replied. Also loving it was a fan replying: "Amazing is an understatement!! You guys are on! Also, would please let us know the brand of Time Machine you are using, hopefully I can get it on Amazon."

Kelly is known for her regular workout sessions with celebrity trainer Anna Kaiser.

“It is a commitment. She is committed to health and fitness, and she shows up every single day. That’s what you have to do. It’s not going to happen in three moves or in three days. It’s going to happen over two years, three years…even ten years," Anna has revealed.
