Kelly Ripa has finally left her at-home studio and returned to the set of Live with Kelly and Ryan. Not surprisingly, she made sure to do it in style.

ICYMI: The 49-year-old returned to the show’s studio on Tuesday to resume (semi) normal production. Lucky for us, producers flooded the official Live with Kelly and Ryan Instagram page with tons of behind-the-scenes photos and videos of the big return. And while we loved seeing our two favorite co-hosts reunited (from a safe social distance, of course), we couldn’t help but focus on the gorgeous dress Ripa rocked for the occasion.

In one video, the actress is seen standing in from of her desk talking to the camera about her ensemble. “Hey everyone, I am wearing Cynthia Rowley and Gianvito Rossi shoes,” she said, with a little off-screen assistance, as the cameraman zoomed in on her green pumps. “A little color and a giant bold shoulder. If your shoulders are big your waist looks smaller, they say. I’m not sure so you’ll have to tell me.

The Campbell ruffle mini-dress in question is blush pink, with a black abstract geo print that forms almost an optical illusion. It also features puff sleeves and shoulders with ruffled accents, a fitted waist and a flared skirt.

The best part? It’s still available online ($450). But, knowing how these things go, we don’t imagine it’ll be in stock for long.


It’s also worth mentioning that at one point during Tuesday’s taping both Ripa and Ryan Seacrest spent some time in hazmat suits (because why not?). Still, that Cynthia Rowley number is our favorite.
