Kelly Ripa's Risky Bag Narrowly Avoided Scandal

Only someone with nothing to hide would ever dare step out with a completely see-through bag. And it turns out, Kelly Ripa is that woman. On a stroll with her dog this weekend, Ripa wore the boldest bag trend imaginable: a totally clear plastic Adidas bum bag strapped around her waist. Despite our fears for her, even the closest zoom-ins didn't yield any scandalous findings — it seems like the talk show host was simply packing chapstick and hand sanitizer rather than her deepest, darkest secrets, or even a little embarrassing clutter.

But what her voyeuristic handbag lacked in scandal, her questionable pants made up for manifold. The camo trend has been a topic of debate season after season, and while come celebrities like Irina Shayk and Reese Witherspoon are embracing it, others are sticking squarely to neutrals (though Jennifer Lopez might argue that it is one). The military-inspired print, while not new to fashion, has the ability to divide consumers as to its wearability; to some, its army ties leave a poor taste in their mouth, and to others, it's an homage to Americana.

Ripa, though, seems unperturbed by the pants' potential for polarization. Her elastic-ankled joggers served the casual cool confidence of a woman with nothing to hide. Shop Ripa's double-daring trends below.
