Kelly Ripa’s Daughter Lola Consuelos Is All Of Us As Teens After Making A Risqué Alteration To Her Prom Dress

Remember back in high school when we walked out of our homes dressed as hijas modestas our mamis were proud to send off with a kiss only to ditch our sweaters for spaghetti strap tops or put on a little lip liner the moment we hit the bus stop? 

Well, turns out Latina teens are still up to our mischievous ways.

Turns out Kelly Ripa’s daughter knows the rules of the trade too.

On Monday’s episode of The Jerry O’ Show, guest Kelly Ripa disclosed that her daughter Lola Consuelos, 18, made some risqué alterations to her prom dress that she and husband Mark Consuelos did not approve. ¡Que sinvergüenza!

“That’s the prom dress we had made and she had altered behind our back,” Ripa, 48, told host-actor Jerry O’Connell about the stunning gown her daughter wore to the formal dance in a photo displayed on a big screen behind them. “So that’s why you know, uh, the girls are fully on display.”

She’s not exaggerating, either. 

Lola dazzled in a form-fitting, emerald-green satin dress with a deep V-cut that put her breasts front and center. 

With her long brown hair in Old Hollywood waves, the Italian-Mexican young beauty looked gorgeous, but seeing her tatas so present in the ensemble was a surprise to her mother and father, to say the least.

“Everybody came down the stairs together, and I just mean Lola,” Ripa added, referring to her daughter’s impossible-to-miss boobies, as the audience erupted in laughter.

According to Cosmopolitan, the hidden alterations could have been payback, whether intentional or not, for a shocking sight Ripa and Consuelos delivered days earlier that is similarly haunting Lola.

During the teen’s 18th birthday back in June, she walked in on her parents having sex. 

“She shuts the door and you hear, ‘You just ruined my birthday, and my life,’” Ripa said of her daughter’s dramatic but also understandable reaction to the x-rated scene. 

In defense of Lola’s adolescent disobedience, seeing your parents naked and grinding on one another is pretty horrifying and revolting. Surely, at this point, both parties are probably, right?

Despite Lola’s mischief, Ripa proudly posted a photo of her daughter in the sumptuous prom gown, which was designed by New York-based tailor Raza Wijdan and styled by her mother’s own stylist Audrey Slater, in June. But, according to Ripa, even getting a photo from her daughter took some work. “It took me 20 hours to get that photo. I was like, ‘Please just give Mommy one. Just one photo,” Ripa told O’Connell, sounding like all of our mamis who are desperate to receive photos we have not yet had the time to thoroughly look through, scrutinize and edit.

Ripa, however, was lucky enough to receive two daughter-approved prom pictures, one of Lola and her date and another of the mother and daughter smiling side-by-side. “Love you,” Ripa wrote in a caption.

During the segment of the new Fox TV daytime talk show, Ripa also talked about what high school was like for her baby girl, who graduated this year and will be attending New York University’s new Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music in the fall.

When O’Connell asks Ripa if HBO’s new hit series Euphoria adequately illustrates what teen life looks like these days, the fellow actress-talk show host says, “I’m pretty sure that’s exactly how high school is.” Her response frightened the host, a father of young daughters. Before O’Connell had a heart attack, Ripa quickly noted that she was kidding and added that she hopes the show isn’t a genuine portrayal. 

The Zendaya-fronted series that debuted on June 16 follows a group of high school students as they navigate drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love, and friendships. Apparently, Lola and her girls are big fans of the show, much like the rest of the world right now, which prompted Ripa to ask her daughter if it is an accurate representation of modern-day adolescence. 

Lola’s response was less than comforting: “I don’t really think so, not that much,” Ripa recalled her girl saying.

At this point, Ripa, O’Connell and all parents in the audience are validly terrified.

Despite teasing her daughter for making adjustments to her dress behind her back, mocking her generation’s obsession with perfect photos and trying to make sense of Gen Z youngsters in general, she and O’Connell agreed that Lola is an all-around great young woman.

“She’s a smart girl. She’s a nice girl,” Ripa said of her daughter.

Ripa married the Spanish-born Mexican-Italian actor Mark Consuelos on May 1, 1996. 

The pair met one year prior as co-stars on the beloved soap opera All My Children. Together, the couple shares three children: Michael Joseph, 22, Lola Grace, 18, and Joaquin Antonio, 16.

Vogue México knows a good trend when it comes to the fashion world. Their recent decision to feature model Vanessa Romo on the cover of their September issue proves that they also know a classic too. Speaking with Vogue México the model opened up about her career, challenges, and experiences that have allowed her to position herself as one of the modeling world’s most prominent figures.

The model with Mexican roots started out her career by modeling on small projects then moved up to uploading images to Instagram and eventually became discovered by Forever 21. Soon after, the North American fast-fashion brand offered Romo a collaboration and she was ultimately signed to an agent.

Now she’s Vogue México’s September model.

In her interview with Vogue, Romo says that the first time she saw plus-size models on a runway, her view of the fashion industry completely shifted.

Seeing women with bodies just like hers, made Romo feel represented in a way that was beautiful and confident. Speaking to Vogue México, Romo explains that she struggled her first two years as a model because she was still in college at University of California, Santa Bárbara. Because of her Latin roots, Romo studied Chicano Studies and Spanish. Her interest led her to continue to explore her identity and Romo decided to audition for Nuestra Belleza Latina on Univision in 2018.

Romo told Vogue that she decided to take part in the competition because she knew there was a need for this representation in the Latino community. When she finished the contest, she realized that she needed to continue breaking expectations for models.

“With this new inspiration, she decided to learn to love her body. Modeling and fashion were for her a way of exploring her own confidence and growing her,” Vogue México revealed. “The power of modeling captivated her so much that it was then that she realized that she herself wanted to be part of the change. Just as she needed empowerment, she knew that there were so many girls and women who needed it equally.”

Cardi B’s Balenciaga Dreams Have Officially Come True! — She’s Their Latest Face

Fans of Cardi B know that the big-time rapper has long loved Balenciagas (particularly the ones that look like socks)!

As it turns out the feelings between the high-end fashion brand and the “WAP” rapper are 100% mutual. This week, Balenciaga revealed the face of its new campaign and it’s your girl Cardi B.

This week, Balenciaga debuted Cardi B as the face of its winter 2020 campaign.

In the images of her new Balenciaga campaign, Cardi can be seen wearing a midnight blue evening gown while lying down on a sprawling colorful lawn.

The Balenciaga ad featuring Cardi is currently strung up outside the Louvre in Paris. According to Dazed, the photo (which shows Cardi rocking a black bob while lying amongst a bunch of children’s toys) was self-shot in Los Angeles during the COVID-19 lockdown. 

Cardi’s appearance makes for a big-time Afro-Latina first.

It’s commonplace for fashion houses to use famous faces to model their clothes but Balenciaga has kept away from the practice up until now. Cardi’s appearance makes her the first celebrity that the luxury fashion house has ever tapped to head a campaign. Cardi’s appearance also makes it a first for the rapper who has never modeled for a major fashion house.  

Cardi’s celebrated the news on her Instagram.

“Ya looking at the face of a Balenciaga campaign!” she wrote. “I remember how I felt seeing myself on a billboard in NYC Times Square but Paris! Wish I was there to see it in person!”
