Kelly Ripa in Erdem at the 2013 Broadcasting and Cable Awards

Posted on October 29, 2013

Hey, kids! Can YOU spot the difference between Kelly’s dress and the one the model is wearing? Take a red pen and circle the differences! But not if this computer belongs to your mom, dad, school or office, mkay? Then you get permission first.


Kelly Ripa attends the Broadcasting and Cable 23rd Annual Hall of Fame Awards dinner at The Waldorf Astoria in New York City in an Erdem dress.

Erdem ‘Jane’ Silk Maxi Dress

We question whether the colors really work for her, but even so, this could have looked so much better if it fit her correctly. You take the drape away and turn it into something skintight, and all the interest just drains right out of it. If we can see your bellybutton through it, it’s no longer a maxi dress, we’re thinking. We’re also thinking we shouldn’t be seeing your bellybutton through your dress. We’re old-fashioned that way.

And geez, would it have killed her to pick up one of the colors in her dress for the clutch? Dark purple or blue would’ve suited us fine.

Okay, yes. We’re a little cranky.
