Kelly Ripa and her dashing hubby Mark Conseulos were the image of married bliss on the Oscars red carpet this Sunday in Los Angeles.

The 48-year-old daytime TV star arrived at the Dolby Theatre wearing a massive black and pewter grey print gown by Christian Siriano.

Meanwhile, her soap star hunk, whom she has been married to since 1996, went for Old Hollywood glamour in a black tuxedo and bow tie. 

Power couple: Kelly Ripa and her dashing hubby Mark Conseulos were the image of married bliss on the Oscars red carpet this Sunday in Los Angeles

Kelly accentuated her screen siren features with makeup and wore her signature blonde hair down in luxurious waves for the swank affair.

She fired up her Instagram page and uploaded a snapshot of herself and Mark at the Oscars, captioning it sweetly: ‘Prom night’ with four heart emoji.

It might be the gold standard of award shows, but with falling viewing figures, The Academy Of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences have made some major changes for this year’s Oscars ceremony.  

These range from skipping a host – after Kevin Hart stepped down – to recruiting  ‘highly recognized talent from various walks of life’ to present the eight nominees for Best Picture, a role usually reserved for actors.

Those talents include anti-Trump chef and restaurateur Jose Andres, Daily Show host Trevor Noah and civil rights leader and Georgia congressman John Lewis and the woman who many consider to be the greatest athlete of all time, Serena Williams.

There was an early announcement that the Best Song nominees would not be featured in the telecast, a decision that was changed following public uproar.

Next was the decision to discontinue the trend of having the actors who won in each category last year present at the ceremony.

That was revealed by Allison Janney, whose appearance presenting alongside Sam Rockwell at the Golden Globes last month proved to be one of the rare highlights of the unremarkable telecast.

Uproar ensured, and the Academy soon announced that the tradition would continue.

Next, the Academy opted to eliminate four categories from the telecast – Cinematography, Film Editing, Live Action Short, and Makeup and Hairstyling – and present those awards during the commercial break.

That managed to draw the ire of many members of the Academy, and was protested in an open letter signed by the likes of  Glenn Close, Robert DeNiro, Kerry Washington, Brad Pitt, Halle Berry and hundreds more.
