Ryan Seacrest Just Took a Page Out of Kelly Ripa’s Fashion Playbook on ‘Live’ Today

While we’ve pretty much gotten used to Kelly Ripa changing up her look recently, we were surprised to see Ryan Seacrest follow in her footsteps on this morning’s episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan.

ICYMI: Over the past few weeks, the 50-year-old TV personality has been swapping her contacts for a few different pairs of eyeglasses while filming the series. We first saw Ripa in a pair of black specs back in November, in a video shared on the official Live account. In the clip, Ripa could be heard joking about her glasses, stating she’s been happier not wearing them 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.”

Now, it looks like Seacrest is also wanting to give his eyes a break from contacts because, on today’s episode, he was sporting a pair of black frames. And we have to say, he looks rather sophisticated.

Of course, we weren’t the only ones to take notice of the 45-year-old’s new look. Some fans were quick to comment on his brand-new facial accessory in the comments section of a behind-the-scenes post on Instagram.

One user wrote, “Love Ryan wearing glasses,” while another added, “They both look great wearing glasses.”

We couldn’t agree more.
