Kelly Ripa always gets it right when it comes to fashion, and went on a trip down memory lane over the weekend as she celebrated her friend's birthday. 

The Live with Kelly and Mark star took to Instagram to share a lovely photo of herself hitting the dance floor with her pal Mark Mullet in honor of his big day. 

In the picture, the mother-of-three looked stylish dressed in a silk blue midi dress, teamed with leg-lengthening heels.

Kelly's blonde hair was styled in a bouncy blowdry and parted in the middle.

The star loves fashion and often wears head-turning looks on her talk show. It's been a big year for the Hope and Faith actress, who said farewell to her good friend and co-star of six years, Ryan Seacrest, back in April.

In replacement of the American Idol star, Kelly's husband Mark Consuelos came on board to work alongside his wife. Kelly and Mark often open up about their family life while on the show, and are doting parents to three grown-up children.

Kelly added: "When Joaquin left, it was hard, the two of us and the dogs staring at each other, like 'Well, now what?'"

"The first dinner I cooked, I'm not kidding, was for 12 people, and it was just the two of us. We sat there with this inordinate amount of food, neither one of us hungry at all."

During their chat with People, Mark indicated why it wasn't Joaquin appearing on Live, but instead, his friend. Mark also told People that out of all their children, Joaquin is "a little reserved" and when it comes to watching his famous parents on Live, he likely wouldn't. 

"Joaquin's a little reserved. But he would turn it on. He's a drama student and he could turn it on for that hour, but I think he probably wouldn't want to do that," he explained.
