Maria Menounos has received so many comments on her one-shouldered and acid-wash denim jumpsuit, it seems she’s been forced to explain herself. The 42-year-old media face, recently in the news for sad reasons as mom Litsa lost her battle with both cancer and COVID, was last night back to good spirits on Instagram. Posting ahead of her MTV return as she hosts “The Challenge: All Stars,” the former E! News face stunned her fans in the snazzy getup. See why it’s become a talking point below.
Scroll for the photos. Maria will join co-host Nate Burleson on MTV, with her 6.9 million followers last night getting a sneak peek at her outfit. Sharing stage shots and a bit of an oops facial expression in the opening snap, Maria showed off a faded and one-shouldered puff-sleeve jumpsuit, one flaunting the star’s toned upper body and shown almost full-length in a swipe right.
Also rocking a high ponytail that Ariana Grande would approve of, Maria was all smiles, wearing statement cube earrings and a gold necklace.
The jumpsuit, which shouted out the return of all things ’90s, wound up becoming the focal point in the comments section, with Maria captioning her post:
“Yup-it was crazy fun to be back hosting for @mtv! We’ve got tea, receipts, and never-before-seen footage for you on #TheChallengeAllStars reunion!” also adding: “Watch me host it Tonight with my new friend @nateburleson streaming on @paramountplus! @ChallengeMTV fashion credits tagged!”
The jumpsuit is from Retrofete, with the statement jewelry courtesy of MTV face Kristin Cavallari’s Uncommon James brand. See her reveal after the photo.
Comments came in fast. “This jumpsuit tho!” one fan wrote. “That outfit,” another said. Here’s here Maria swooped in, taking to the replies and writing: “Thnx! It was all throwback from cast host so outfit had to be too!” Maria, also complimented as a fan said she hasn’t “aged” at all, even snagged a like from known fashionista, 46-year-old reality star Larsa Pippen.
The jumpsuit was actually shown off back on April 23, when Maria wore pink heels and wrote: “It’s a 90’s vibe… ” More photos below.
Earlier this year, Maria made headlines for the tragic loss of her mother Litsa, whose lengthy battle with brain cancer was met with a newer one via COVID.
“Happy Mother’s Day Mama,” Maria captioned a shot of herself and her mother. “To anyone who has lost their moms here in the physical world, I want to share a portion of my speech that I unfortunately wasn’t allowed to deliver at her funeral. Not sure why our churches don’t allow for it, but it is what it is.
