Kelly Ripa Should Have Known Her 'Nipples' Were Showing (VIDEO)

Kelly Ripa Miracle DressIt isn't often that Kelly Ripa commits a fashion faux pas, but this week on Live! With Kelly, she did just that. And her gaffe didn't just offend her loyal viewers, it downright angered them. They love them some perky blonde goodness, but for the love of God, they don't want to see her nipples.

Here's what happened: Kelly was wearing a form-fitting dress by Stella McCartney called "The Miracle Dress." (You may have seen it on Kate Winslet before.) The purpose of the dress is to give women of all sizes a lovely, hourglass shape, and make you look all around fantastic. Part of the miracle of the dress, though, is the darts which are sewn inside, holding everything in place. AKA, Kelly's nipples.

It was a silly misunderstanding, and I think the people who wrote in outraged ought to find themselves a hobby, but that said -- didn't anyone look at Kelly before the show and say, "Something's not quite right"?

The darts really do look like nipples. They stop right where nipples would be! Not sure if people didn't say anything backstage because they thought they were Kelly's actual nipples, but come on, wasn't there at least a mirror handy? And isn't it, like, the job of the wardrobe department to be on nipple patrol?

As far as fashion faux pas go, I'd say this was a minor one -- and it certainly helped that Kelly was able to address the issue on air (and with a sense of humor -- "Everybody knows I had my nipples removed years ago"). But maybe next time do a once-over in the mirror before rushing off to stage. Think of it as a requisite nipple check.

It was probably chilly in the studio.

If those are nipples, I would like to have two for breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner and a midnight snack.

I for one was not offended! If they were indeed her nipples showing through the dress, congrats, however they were explained as darts in the dress and they well could have been. Either way get over it folks, she looked lovely.

if kelly ripa had great looking body people would care about her showing nips but she don't so they laugh it off cause she dose not look that great

It was obvious it was the darts in the dress, but I would not have worn it just because people (men?) would see "nipples."  Just didn't look right and way, way too formfitting anyway.

You really shouldn't have gone for such a sensational, misleading headline. Although it states in the article that she did say on air that they were darts in her dress, not nipples, apparently only one person who commented understands this. I happened to be watching that day. No big deal. Was it a slow news day when this was written?

You have got to be kidding me, we are about to go in ton another war, we have children being abused so severe that is horrific, we have our Vets coming back home with no legs and no arms, and people of America is really outraged of Kelly's Nipples???? What in the world has become of our country? Is this reality and normal to every one? I am flabergasted!!!! WOW what a society we live in to care about Kelly's nipples!!! Amazing!!
