At 53, Kelly Ripa’s black gown on Oscars red carpet ignites reactions from fans

This past Sunday’s 96th Academy Awards, which were held at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, was an evening filled with predictable events.

Among the most memorable were John Cena’s nude stroll across the stage to give the Best Costume Design award and Al Pacino’s choice to announce the winner of the Best Film category without first looking at the nominees.

The red carpet provided several talking points as well, not the least of which had to do with the abundance of striking ensembles on display. Actress Kelly Ripa and her husband Mark Consuelos reportedly stole the evening, with the former making waves on social media in particular.

It’s not unusual for celebrities to make the news for the clothes they choose to wear to an awards ceremony.

However, in the era of social media, where real-time red carpet photographs can be shared instantly with a global audience, discussing and debating costumes in real time has perhaps become more popular than before.

Because of this, it’s reasonable to assume that anyone lucky enough to attend an Oscar-sized event will always be the subject of intense scrutiny.

Kelly Ripa was one of the celebrities who had their wardrobe choices scrutinized online this year. She posted a picture of herself and her father storming the red carpet on Instagram, wearing a stunning black gown.

There, her horde of admirers greeted it with a wave of gratitude.

“You two look fantastic. But that dress is gorgeous ❤✦✦,” a commenter said.

Gorgeous dress. Lovely couple,” said a second person.

A third person remarked, “Kelly, your hair, the dress—you look gorgeous.”

Naturally, there were some awkward moments. Ripa’s choice to wear the garment was questioned by several.

One critic wrote, “I love you Kelly, but not this dress.”

“Unlike Mark not to have a perfectly tailored suit or tux on,” another person said. Usually, his attire is immaculate.

“Kelly, put on some bike shorts,” a third person commented. With the transparent dress on, you are lowering yourself. You’re not worthy of it!

A fourth individual said, “She doesn’t even look like the same person anymore 🤷‍♀️.”

Whether it’s just me or not, but I thought Kelly and Mark looked amazing at the Oscars! Share your opinions with us in the comments section.
