Television host Kelly Ripa recently talked about her 2014 Academy Award appearance on her morning talk show "Live! with Kelly and Michael" and showed why she is so popular with viewers. Kelly Ripa brings a common sense approach to the show and viewers as a result are able to connect with her.
Kelly Ripa disclosed that she purchased her 2014 Academy Award dress online. She did this because in previous years the designers would loan dresses to her that came with a large number of restrictions concerning the tailoring of the dress and for a woman who loves to be in control and an unapologetic fashionista this was too much for Kelly Ripa. In 2014 she purchased her dress online, a dress that is made by one of her favorite designers, Roland Mouret and had it tailored absent all the drama.
Kelly Ripa then proceeded to wear her 'tailored' dress to the 2014 Academy Awards, a gorgeous peach colored Roland Mouret floor length gown which earned much acclaim as being one of the best dresses of the evening and she once again was one of the fashion stars of the red carpet. Moreover, because Kelly Ripa's dress was tailored she was able to act like a real person and eat some of the pizza backstage at the Oscars without fearing that she might bust out of her dress unlike some of her colleagues who lived this fear as they were stuffed into their corsets because they could not alter the designer dresses.
Kelly Ripa was one of the fashion winners of Oscar night and when she disclosed the manner she purchased her dress and had it tailored for her body Kelly Ripa demonstrated the common sense mindset that combined with her energetic personality enables her to connect with her audience in a manner that many hosts wish they could.
