There's no doubt — every time Kelly Ripa steps up to the fashion plate, she hits a home run.

The Live With Kelly and Ryan host recently attended the 2022 Complexions Gala for contemporary ballet in New York City, where she turned up the volume on her usual daytime TV attire. For the event, Kelly wore a floor-length black strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline and hidden pockets. While the silhouette of the dress flowed on her petite frame, it also featured a significant cutout that modernized the classic look.

As the dress was relatively simple in design, Kelly chose to spice up the look with bedazzled black heels. For jewelry, she kept things demure with a gold bracelet, her wedding rings and diamond earrings. The Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories author finished off the ensemble with wavy blonde hair and natural makeup.

When Kelly later posted highlights from the night to her Instagram, her followers were stunned by how beautiful she looked. Naturally, they told the TV personality just that in her comments section.

"Kelly your dress is gorgeous ❤️❤️," one fan complimented. "[Looking] fit as a dancer yourself. 💪🏼 🔥 This looks amazing," another shouted out. "Amazing!! (Also — are [there are] POCKETS in that dress? 👀 Kelly Ripa. Living the dream.)," a different user added.

While fans know the All My Children alum for her chic outfits on her talk show, she's also gotten attention for her every day style. Earlier this month, Kelly shared photos from an Italian getaway earlier this summer, where she wore a white gown alongside her husband Mark Consuelos and their three children: Michael, Lola and Joaquin.

As we approach the holiday season, we have a feeling she'll be sharing more family moments looking stunning again.
