Kerry Washington has made it no secret she has a thing for Farm Rio’s whimsical dresses, and neither has Kelly Ripa, who has worn looks from the celeb-loved brand often on Live With Kelly and Ryan.

So, it was no surprise when the Scandal star shared a video on Instagram of herself twirling around outside in a dreamy tiered Farm Rio dress that was topped with a foliage print and came complete with an adjustable tie bodice.

Kerry was glowing in the clip as she showed off the dress in a beachfront backyard. The Little Fires Everywhere star wore her hair in braids, and also posted a snap of herself lifting the hem of the dress to put the frock's flowy details on full display.

Kerry’s celebrity friends and fans were quick to rush to her comments to praise the ensemble, with Storm Reid writing “Love.” Katie Couric added, “So pretty.” Another follower chimed in: "That dress. The braids. The beauty."

"Lovely dress," another replied.

We loved it too and tracked it down on Farm Rio

It’s a perfect look to pack in your bag for end-of-summer vacations and staycations, and also makes for a statement-making dress for brunch and daytime fetes. It’s also versatile - you can dress it up with a heel or rock it with flat sandals for a more casual look.

Speaking of trips, Kelly sported one of her favorite Farm Rio dresses earlier this year when she and her cohost Ryan Seacrest took a virtual trip to San Juan, Puerto Rico in February.

When the show posted a clip of the show and pointed out Kelly’s tropical pink ruffled dress, fans were quick to sing her style praises in the comments, with one writing, "You look great!", another replied, "Beautiful."

If Kelly’s dress looks familiar, it’s because this isn’t the first time she’s worn it. The fashionista first rocked the look back in May 2019 with her fave yellow Gianvito Rossi yellow Portofino sandals.

Kelly and Kerry aren’t the only stars who are fans of Farm Rio. Sarah Jessica Parker, Regina Hall, Lupita N’yongo, and more have been spotted in it too.
