Another year, another amazing Halloween for Kelly Ripa on ‘Live!’ Kelly pulled off a ton costumes in just an hour, stunning the audience with her looks as Donald Trump, Beyonce, Hamilton, & more. Click through to be wowed!
Is there anything Kelly Ripa can’t do? The host of Live! With Kelly is all about Halloween, and pulls off multiple costumes each year during the annual Halloween episode. Kelly always wears pop culture-inspired getups, and her 2016 collection was no exception to that rule!
Kelly dressed up as Peter Pan, Hamilton, a Spice Girl, Donald Trump, Beyonce, Negan from The Walking Dead, Bachelor in Paradise contestant, a Pokémon Trainer, Mr. Robot, a Haunted House Hunter, a DNCE band member, Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad, and so much more — it was unbelievable.
Kelly was opened up the show as Peter Pan, but remained as Hamilton throughout the entire show. She then changed into a Spice Girl, Sugar Spice, who entered a pageant as a Spice Girl dressed in a silver studded spiky bra a sequin mini skirt, pigtails and red leather knee-high boots.
Her next look was our absolute favorite, though. Kelly dressed up as Donald Trump for First Family Feud and she was completely orange in a suit and red tie with a perfect wig. We almost lost it when she dressed up as Beyonce from Lemonade, though, when she was decked out in the yellow ruffled dress with a bat and she looked absolutely amazing — she even had Beyonce’s long wig on.
Next, she dressed up as Negan from The Walking Dead and wore a leather jacket, red scarf, and even had the spiked bat. From there she was in Live With Paradise, which was a spin-off of Bachelor in Paradise and she rocked a bunch of patterned beachy dresses, as she was the main contestant. Then, she dressed up as Ash Catchem from Pokémon, Mr. Robot, a ‘Haunted House Hunter,’ and so much more!
This is the first year that Kelly hasn’t had a co-host to wear couple costumes with her, since Michael Strahan left the show earlier in the year. But she really didn’t need anyone to make Halloween perfect on the annual episode. Even Gelman, the show’s famous producer, got in the spirit this year!
We can’t help but remember the awesome costumes Kelly and Michael pulled off in 2015, and there were a lot of them! Their first hilarious costume was Princess Leia and Han Solo. Those wigs were just terrible, but that somehow made it better. They also wore the iconic duo, Super Bowl Katy Perry and Left Shark! Is there anything better?
Kelly reigned supreme, though, in 2015, Making Halloween Great Again by dressing up as Donald Trump. Remember when it was still a joke and we didn’t think he could be president?? Maybe the cherry on top of their epic Halloween is when Kelly and Michael brought out some hot shirtless guys; they were the Magic Mike cast! Yes, even Kelly! It wasn’t too risqué for morning TV, don’t worry! Kelly was wearing a suit that looked like chiseled muscles with chest hair!
