Kelly Ripa's complete style transformation: From hot pink jumpsuits to stunning gowns

Kelly Ripa has sure come a long way since her "All My Children" days!

The soap opera actress turned daytime talk show host has lit up every red carpet she's appeared on since she broke into the scene in the early 1990s. And just like her incredible career, Ripa's style has definitely transformed through the years.

After she skyrocketed to fame with her breakout role on "All My Children," a then-20-year-old Ripa opted for bolder and brighter gowns that were bit more revealing. At the 20th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards back in 1993, the blonde beauty wore a sequined-covered strapless gown with a sexy thigh-high slit. Just a couple of years later, in 1999, Ripa stepped out for the same award show -- this time in a hot pink, backless jumpsuit.

We also can't talk about Ripa's fashion during her earlier days in Hollywood without talking about her hair ... it's safe to say she loved to experiment! Ripa rocked every hairstyle in the book -- including the cringeworthy crimped style that many celebs sported in the '90s.

As Kelly matured and transformed into a Hollywood veteran, so did her style! In the mid-2000s, Ripa wore a number of fun and flirty dresses that provided a bit more coverage. However, she always made sure to put her famously toned arms on display.

These days, Ripa is one of the most stylish stars in the industry, slaying every single red carpet she walks on. While the "Live With Kelly & Ryan" co-host loves a classic gown in a neutral hue -- her black dress for the 2016 Oscars was one for the books! -- she's still not afraid to walk on the wild side once in a while with a bold pattern or bright color.

Check out the slideshow above for Ripa's complete style transformation -- including the skin-baring gowns she rocked early on in her Hollywood career.
