Kelly Ripa's pants are making all kinds of headlines today. The Live! with Kelly and Ryan host personally admitted to not being able to breathe in the white tight-waisted pair of slacks she donned for today's episode of her show, per The Inquisitr, although it looks like there's been an update. The 48-year-old has appeared in a new video posted to the show's Instagram account, with the content appearing to double up as both a fashion display and a reminder that this blonde has an epic sense of humor.
The video showed Kelly in the dressing room that she's regularly seen in; the star has created a bit of a pattern in terms of delivering backstage videos of herself documenting her looks. Today's video offered designer mentions; the pants were from Roland Mouret, with the patterned shirt coming from Erdem. Kelly also appeared in a pair of high heels that she dubbed to be forest green, although a voice in the background did suggest they were "Kelly Green." Kelly was seen admiring her look in a mirror, although talk did turn to the pants fairly quickly.
Kelly stated that she regularly wears pants, saying that people seem to think that she looks like a grown up any time she wears pants. Kelly then admitted to finding white pants risky, but the epic part of the video featured a bit of an outburst as she spoke right into the camera, announcing a "political statement."
"I'm wearing white pants post-Labor Day, so...F*ck you!" she said.
