Following Maria Menounos’s stint in Kelly’s chair, Search Party actress Ali Wentworth showed up on the set wearing a high-neck floral long-sleeved top paired with belted trousers. She completed the look with pumps and bejeweled drop earrings.

“Kelly has the day off. Filling in is the one and only Ali Wentworth,” Ryan said at the top of the show as Ali strolled to her seat. 

The thesp didn’t reveal who designed her look, but we found a similar version at Saks Fifth Avenue. As a bonus, the A.L.C. blouse is on sale.

Prior to Ali’s appearance on the show, Maria took over Kelly’s duties Monday and Tuesday and stunned in an orange gingham suit.

The longtime TV host strutted out wearing an orange Smythe plaid blazer and matching shorts, and finished the ‘70s-inspired look with a silky ivory top tucked into her shorts, gold statement Uncommon James earrings, and gold Stuart Weitzman stilettos.

Fans went wild when the fashionista shared a photo of the look on her Instagram page, which also showed off her locks pulled up into a single long braid.

“Hello beautiful weather! Hello NYC! Nice to see you back in action,” Maria captioned the post. “@livekellyandryan was so fun today-if you watched- I reaaaaaally thought I was gonna guess right! My dad has two birthdays too!  anyway, fun day.”

As for when Kelly will return, no one has revealed that just yet. However, the style star – who has been keeping a low profile – returned to social media on Tuesday evening to share a sweet video of her two dogs Chewy and Lena, to mark National Puppy Day.

The footage was taken from inside Kelly's $27 million Manhattan townhouse, where the star has been relaxing during her time off work.
