Kelly Ripa's dress on Thursday's Live With Kelly and Ryan was a complete 180 from her usual floaty and floral styles – and her fans LOVED it!
Kelly tapped into the loungewear vibe with her stunningly bright pink Tom Ford dress, which had the coolest and most surprising element – a hood. The cashmere-blend dress is exclusive to Net-a-Porter and described as "creating the illusion of perfectly paired separates without any of the hassle."
