Kelly Ripa & Ryan Seacrest Just Had a Walk-off on ‘Live’—and Ripa’s High-Waisted Pants Clearly Won

On the latest episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, co-host Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest decided to kick off the show with a friendly game of “Who Has the Best Strut?” While yes, both of their walks deserved an award, there was only one clear winner: Ripa’s high-waisted pants.

In a new clip posted on the Live Instagram page, the morning show hosts walk onstage to greet the audience, shortly after announcer Deja Vu introduces their arrival. Ripa proceeds to show off her best walk, while Seacrest appears to be a bit confused. Still, he joins in on the fun and shows off his moves. They close out the walk-off with a hip bump and go to take their seats.

Fans couldn’t get enough of the dynamic duo in the comments section. One person wrote, “Love you guys,” with a slew of red heart emojis. Another person chimed in and said, “Your whole crew always set up my mornings for a wonderful day! Thanks for the happy vibes y’all!!!”

But, what really had viewers talking was Ripa’s entire ensemble. The All My Children actress rocked a blue and white V-neck blouse with denim high-waisted jeans. If you’re thinking: Hey, those pants look awfully familiar, then you’ve probably seen them before.

Back in March, Ripa wore the same pants on an episode of Live. At the time, she was serving cowgirl chic with a yellow checkered shirt, gold stiletto heels and navy blue jeans.

Kelly just knows how to enter a room.
