Kelly Ripa Returned to ‘Live’ and Re-wore a Stylish Houndstooth Dress

Kelly Ripa has made her return to the set of Live with Kelly and Ryan in one of her past ensembles.

Last week, while Ripa took a short break from the talk show, Ali Wentworth took her place as a guest co-host. During her time on the series, Wentworth grabbed our attention with her stylish outfits, including a few variations of a bow necktie blouse, as well as a black-and-pink patterned midi dress.

But now that Ripa has returned, she is also bringing us envy-inducing fashion. On today's episode, the 51-year-old host showed up in a light pink houndstooth midi dress from Alessandra Rich. As we've noted before, Ripa loves when her outfits include a touch of frills, and this silk design is accentuated with a lace-trimmed Chelsea collar and puffy sleeves.

Ripa was seen wearing the gown, along with a pair of yellow heels, in a video shared to the Live Instagram account. Producers captioned the clip, “We’re live now!!”

This is not the first time Ripa has worn this design, which looks like a cross between Little House on the Prairie and Project Runway. Back in early September, the host was seen sporting the gown with a pair of white heels while welcoming guests Amanda Peet and Padma Lakshmi.

The last time Ripa wore this outfit, fans clearly loved it, commenting things like “Love the dress” and “Such a beautiful dress.” And they must feel the same way, because this time around, they left more complimentary comments.

There's nothing we love more than a good rewear. Welcome back, Kelly.
