As the Kelly Ripa co-host search continues into the fall, take a look at some of the Live with Kelly star’s coolest and craziest costumes for Halloween. From sexy to scary, the co-host-questing Ripa has donned Halloween garb both hot and horrifying at spooky celebrations in the past.
As reported by Entertainment Tonight, Kelly Ripa’s Halloween costumes ran the gamut last year on Live. For Halloween 2015, Ripa fascinated fans with various get-ups, not the least of which were her dead-on duds as “break the internet”-era Kim Kardashian (complete with faux champagne).
Whether moonlighting as Super Bowl sensation Katy Perry or strutting her stuff as Star Wars‘ Princess Leia, Kelly Ripa always has a unique fashion sense and fun-loving flair when it comes to Halloween costumes. Here are just a few of the funny and frightening looks from the longtime Live host.
- Kelly Ripa as Katy Perry (with her former Live co-host as Katy Perry’s Left Shark)
Kelly Ripa turned up the heat for Halloween 2015, decked out as pop star Katy Perry from the “Teenage Dream” singer’s now-legendary Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show concert. As Kelly sported a colorful dress identical to Katy’s famous football frock, Ripa’s former Live co-host Michael Strahan played along as the notorious “Katy Perry’s Left Shark,” the choreographically-challenged background dancer that gained internet infamy for his fancy footwork.
- Zombie Kelly Ripa
Is Kelly a Walking Dead zombie or a dental patient from hell? Ripa posted this ghastly Halloween pic to Instagram in 2014. All made up with a believable head gash and some creepily blacked-out chompers, zombie Kelly looks ready to terrorize the neighborhood. Do you think Ripa scared her husband, Mark Consuelos, with this shocking look?
- Kelly Ripa as Princess Leia
Few female Halloween costumes command as much respect as a Princess Leia Organa get-up from the Star Wars films. Another of Kelly’s ingenious outfits from last year’s Live festivities, Ripa convincingly cosplayed as Leia while Strahan tagged along as Luke Skywalker. Perhaps this year Kelly can up the ante with a Slave Leia costume.
- Kelly Ripa, NASA Astronaut
That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for Kelly Ripa. A few years ago, Ripa hit the town as an astronaut for Halloween. Here, Kelly looks ready for action in her NASA coveralls. As noted by Us Weekly, Ripa’s spaceman suit was featured for Halloween 2013 on Live with Kelly and Michael, Kelly Ripa’s first year with Strahan as co-host.
- Ripa the Race Car Driver
Not a Halloween costume, but pretty spiffy nonetheless. As covered by Bravo, Ripa and frequent guest co-host Andy Cohen went full speed ahead as Formula One drivers on an episode of Live with Kelly earlier this summer. Kelly’s curve-hugging jumpsuit surely hit the mark for lascivious Live fans, and hey, Watch What Happens Live‘s Cohen doesn’t look too shabby himself in the checkered racing gear. The duo got all decked out for a down-and-dirty soap box derby race on Live. What do you think of their gear-shifting garments?
As further reported by Us Weekly, a bewigged Kelly also made for a perfectly-orange Donald Trump on Halloween 2015, just one of her many amazing costumes from last year’s celebrations. Do you think Ripa will be able to top herself for Halloween this year? Hopefully, Kelly Ripa is planning some more clever costumes for Halloween 2016.
