CNN is celebrating the holidays by honoring everyday American heroes.
Stars gathered in NYC Monday for the CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute event to praise ten men and women who’ve selflessly dedicated their lives to making the world a better place.
Hostess Kelly Ripa, 46, kicked off the red carpet in style, dazzling in a black sequined number which made a fine display of her thin, toned legs.
The celeb-spawn wore her hair long and loose while framing her face with gold hoop earrings.
At the event the ABC favorite teamed up with Anderson Cooper, he co-host for the evening. The journalist/TV personality looked handsome in a well-tailored suit and stone colored tie which matched his silver tresses.
