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.

There’s An Indigenous Fashion Week In Canada And OMG It Looks Incredible

There’s An Indigenous Fashion Week In Canada And OMG It Looks Incredible

VancouverIndigenousFashionWeek / Instagram

A fashion week is a fashion industry event — pretty self-explanatory, we know. The event, as the name says it, lasts approximately one week. And it’s a platform where fashion designers, brands or “houses” display their latest collections in runway shows to buyers and the media.

These events influence trends for the current and upcoming seasons and they’re pretty notorious for being somewhat elitist, lacking in representation and inclusivity. Indigenous Fashion Week decided to take matters into their own hands and they’ve been hosting an event that presents the most progressive fashion, textiles and crafts by Indigenous artists.

At the intersection of art, fashion and culture, Indigenous Fashion Week Toronto, features works by Native Canadian women.

IFW presents Indigenous-made fashion, textiles and craft, and it’s committed to exploring the connections between mainstream fashion, Indigenous art and traditional practice through presentations for broad audiences and industries.

IFW is bold, inclusive and accessible.

This fashion week challenges perceptions of, and celebrates Indigenous people and their culture with integrity, innovation and excellence. Founder and producer Joleen Mitton says the event is about far more than just celebrating Indigenous clothing designers.

Vancouver Indigenous Fashion Week kicked off with a red dress gala in honour of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.

The red dress has become a symbol of resilience for many, and Mitton says that during IFW it will be featured to raise awareness about ongoing violence against Indigenous women. “That’s why the red dress event still exists,” she says. “I wish it didn’t have to, but it’s something that we keep on needing to talk about. If we can somehow tackle any issue with fashion, that’s what we’re going to do.”

The former model says she hopes the event can help create deeper connections between Canada’s Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities.

Mitton has spent years mentoring Indigenous girls who grew up in foster care in Canada and never knew much about their culture. She’s recruited some of them to be the face of the fashion show, and helped them reclaim their First Nations heritage through fashion.

The event encourages Indigenous people to openly celebrate their culture which has a long history of being subjugated in Canada.

For decades, the Canadian government banned First Nations potlatch — a traditional ceremony that included gift-giving, feasting and dancing. Today, Indigenous Fashion Week in Vancouver brings traditional regalia —from traditional patterns of blankets to capes displaying family animal crests— to the runway for all to see.

Mitton wants this Fashion Week to inspire young people and help them be proud of their culture and traditions.

“Indigenous fashion isn’t just about looking good, it’s about reclaiming parts of who we are,” said Mandy Nahanee, a First Nations storyteller and educator. “We can show our young people this is how beautiful, and amazing, and talented we are, that you should be walking down runways and standing tall with your chin up, being proud of who you are. We need everyone in the world to know that we’re still here.”

Emotional, Heartwarming And Downright Funny: Here Are The Best Wedding Photos Of 2019 According To Fearless Photography

Every two months the Fearless Awards recognize the best wedding photos in the world. The winning images are selected by a panel of expert curators from Fearless Photographers, a digital platform that connects couples with wedding photographers. The pictures have been making the rounds on the internet as the year draws closer to an end. We read that around 2 photos from every 100 are selected, and these ones we rounded up are emotional, heartwarming and downright funny. Which do you like best?

Lucha Libre Style

Kathruyn Krueger

Nothing like including the things you love on such a special day. This groom made sure that his love of Lucha Libre was known, and gave all of the members of his entourage, their own Luchador mask. Gotta love the originality.

A Mariachi Wedding

Gera Gallardo

Here’s the clear example of how a traditional wedding does not have to be conventional. This couple stuck to their roots and decided to give the event a very Mexican dress code with these Mariachi outfits —brb, just gonna look for a groom real quick so I can dress him up as a charro.

An emotional moment

Alberto Parejo

There can’t be a wedding without tears —of joy that is. This photo is so heartwarming it has tears welling up in my eyes.

Making the most of a destination wedding

Alex Beckett

I mean, if you have a place like Santorini as the backdrop for your wedding, no picture can really be a bad one. But tAlex Beckett, the photographer of this gem, used a beautiful play of light and shadow to create the magnified-effect of the married couple against a classic Greek house; dreamy.

Another epic destination wedding shot

Ana Maria Dumbrava

Again, if the wedding is being held at an amazing geographical location, the pictures are just going to be pure gold. This one here, with the happy couple, playfully sliding down the dunes is absolute goals —but also, there’s got to be a lot of sand in those clothes.

Confetti Madness

Joe Scrivens

Everything about this photo gives us chills. The energy, the colors, the vibrancy; it’s like we can feel the love through our screen. Can you?

An unconventional couple

Fiona Walsh

Some people have dessert tables at their weddings, others have board games, some offer boat rides or wild cocktails. Not this couple, they had a whole fair ride at their wedding. And the shot of them both riding at full speed is really a beauty.

A chill wedding by the lake

Juan Carballo Castro

More often than not, brides have the fame of being crazy, controlling, perfectionist maniacs. Not this one. Her entourage had already removed their gowns and jumped into the lake. We can only suspect that she’s about to do the same —and the mood of peace and fun that this photo is transmitting, really is making us question our fictitious wedding plans.

Female love

jake hannah

Ok so I’m crying now. Have you ever seen a photo that captures the essence of female love, companionship, empowerment and sorority more beautifully than this one by Jake Hannah? Okay, maybe you have, but this one is truly moving.

Otherworldly wedding vibes

David Hofman

This photo was actually taken in Brazil, but because of the visual effect, you could swear it was somewhere icy like Iceland or Canada. The couple seem to be walking on water, bathed in sunlight, and if that’t not an ideal metaphor for a happy marriage, then we don’t know what is.

Daddy’s Girl

Lucas Bezila

Crying again. Few things beat a deep father-daughter moment. Crazy to think that this man was about to give this woman, who once was his very own little girl, away. I’m weeping.

Post-wedding swim

Lanny Mann

Another laid back couple. Look at all that joy. A beautiful sunset, a happy moment, all smiles and warmth —we can almost feel the tropical weather just looking at it.

A mother’s love

Casian Podar

This is the visual definition of ‘tears of joy’. This abuelita holds on to her little girl; happily squeezing her, excited because finally, on this nieta’s case, she’ll never have to ask “¿Y el novio?” again.

Celebrate your culture

Jacki Bruniquel

We loved to see other cultures represented in the list of top wedding photos of the year. Not all brides wear white, some wear every color in the rainbow and this bright photo is really lighting up our day.

The couple’s best friend

Marius Dragan

Doggo parents will understand. One cannot simply get married and leave their best friend behind —and this good boy is clearly not ready to let go.

A very NYC wedding

Sascha Reinkin

This one is for the diehard New Yorkers. The ones that love their city so much, they couldn’t picture joining their lives to another, in a city that’s not their own. Absolutely love.
