We’ve gotten pretty used to watching Kelly Ripa wearing glasses on Live with Kelly and Ryan. However, before we got too comfortable, the 50-year-old actress decided to throw us a curveball and debut a never-before-seen pair of specs for yesterday’s morning show.
On Tuesday, the producers of Live shared a behind-the-scenes clip (as usual) of Ripa and her co-host, Ryan Seacrest, leaving their dressing room and making their way to the stage. In the video, the American Idol alum compliments his co-host and pal on her new look. At one point, he turns to the camera and asks “How elegant and smart does Kelly Ripa look today?”
