Kelly Ripa Looked Different on ‘Live’ Again Today...and We Could Get Used to This

Looks like Kelly Ripa’s glasses are here to stay. Just one week after she debuted her new look on Live with Kelly and Ryan, the 50-year-old actress decided to ditch her contacts once again.

The TV personality looked sophisticated in a sheer grey, midi-dress and her favorite pair of green, suede pumps by Gianvito Rossi for Monday’s episode of the morning show. And while we’ll definitely be trying to get our hands on that dress (or one similiar), it was her facial accessory that really grabbed our attention: a pair of black reading glasses.

Of course, the Live producers shared a behind-the-scenes video of Ripa rocking the specs on stage while discussing setting up her Christmas tree early this year. “I think we’ve all agreed to put our trees up early,” she says in the clip. “Honestly, it’s enough already—we’ve all had enough.” We couldn’t agree more, Kel.

As we mentioned earlier, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen the All My Children alum sporting her square frames on the show. On a recent episode, she also paired the eyewear with a Selena Zebra-Strip Brown wrap midi dress from ba&sh.

In another video shared on the official Live account, Ripa could be heard joking about her glasses, stating she’s been happier not wearing her glasses so she doesn’t have to see what’s been going on.

“Who knew you were so gorgeous? I did not know,” she quipped while speaking to a member of her staff. “I’ve been happy not wearing them [her glasses]. It’s happier just not to see what's happening to me personally.”

Looks like these specs aren’t going anywhere anytime soon (and we’re totally here for it).
