Everyone knows that while Hollywood's biggest stars bring their fashion A-game to the Oscar's red carpet, they will always save some stunners for after the main event.

Although this year's Oscars were definitely stripped back in size, there was no lacking in the fashion department. At the red carpet, we were treated to iridescent butterfly wings from Regina King, welded gold from Andra Day and sensible sneakers from Chloe Zhao.

But one of our favorite stars, Kelly Ripa, saved her glamorous look for after the event, where she and Ryan Seacrest hosted the Live! with Kelly and Ryan After-Oscars Show. The pair dressed up in their Sunday best, but Ripa stole the show with her sequined maroon dress.

On the Live! with Kelly and Ryan Instagram story, they shared the details of Ripa's chic outfit. The talk show host's gown was provided by Alice + Olivia. The burgundy maxi dress (which is on sale for $180 here) featured a collar, side slit and a black sash tied at the waist. Ripa paired the wrap dress with some black and gold Dolce and Gabbana pumps with flower jewels on the front.

We were treated to more shots of Ripa's outfit, as well as Seacrest's suave black suit, on the Live! Instagram account.

Fans loved the Oscars-themed show, with one user saying, "Love you guys! You’re the 2 brightest stars!" Viewers were also obsessed with their red carpet-ready looks, like one commenter, who said: "You both look amazing!"

Someone give Ripa an award for this dress.
