Kelly Ripa Unbuttoned In Jumpsuit For Hump Day

Kelly Ripa is hanging around unbuttoned and in a silk jumpsuit because it's Hump Day. The 50-year-old "Live! With Kelly and Ryan" star, fresh from going naked in the shower to peel and eat oranges, is back to the fashionista looks, with Wednesday bringing the blonde on set, but without 45-year-old co-host Ryan Seacrest. Shortly before "Live!" aired today, a video was posted to the syndicated talk show's Instagram, and it was pure Kelly. Check out the jumpsuit action below.


It's Hump Day!

Scroll for the video. It comes as Kelly continues to make headlines for out-doing the competition with her teeny-tiny waist, flawless style, and penchant for highlighting her pint-sized frame, with today seeing the former "All My Children" actress in all-black.

The video showed Kelly super-pumped and on set. Massive applause greeted the mom of three, with Kelly seen in a long-sleeved, satin, and black belted jumpsuit with a fair few buttons undone - "It is Wednesday, February 10, 2021," Kelly began, then jumping to talk about Ryan's absence.

'Who Better Than Me?'

Kelly continued by echoing the show's caption: "Ryan is under the weather today, don't panic," she added, then confirming that in these "COVID times," it's always best to exercise caution. "Plus it's Hump Day. So who better to sit here than me?!" Ripa closed.

A caption, meanwhile, went for the #KellysFashionFinder and a mention of "American Idol" host Ryan, reading: "Ryan is under the weather today. #KellysFashionFinder: Saint Laurent jumpsuit, Alexander McQueen belt and Gianvito Rossi heels." See the video below!

This wouldn't be the first time Kelly has had to hold down the fort. 2020 saw Seacrest make major headlines for leaving Kelly in the lurch as he both took a day "off" and awaited the results of a COVID test, this after reports of a "minimal cough." Ryan then tested negative, thanking Kelly for pulling off hosting all on her own.

2021 means a New Year, and for Kelly, it's now an opportunity to earn some cash, with the star kicking off 2021 in promo mode for the Persona Nutrition brand she fronts. Click here for the video - scroll for more photos.  

What She Eats

Kelly, last year revealing a love of peanut butter and avocado on toast, has opened up on her diet, one that keeps her super-slim. Speaking to Persona Nutrition, the star said:

"Every day, I have a big salad of microgreens, chickpeas, tomatoes, avocado and toasted nuts drizzled with olive oil and lemon juice. When it’s time for a snack, I skip the sweets and go for berries and nuts—usually pistachios, almonds, or cashews."
