Live With Kelly: Co-Host Michael Strahan and Trademark Gap


Michael Strahan: 3-Piece Suits and Tank Tops

NFL Analyst Michael Strahan joined Kelly today as guest co-host, and Kelly complimented his three-piece suit. Michael said he wants to bring back the “banker look.” Kelly revealed that her oldest son– lovingly referred to on the show as “He Who Must Not Be Named”– also likes three-piece suits. Michael asked if Kelly’s son has a girlfriend. Kelly said that he did not, but if he did, it’s not like he would tell her!

Speaking of male fashion, Kelly pointed out an article from the New York Times Style Section, which called tank tops for men the next big thing. Kelly said that Mark has been noticing lots of men sporting tank tops in their neighborhood, although he hasn’t tried wearing one yet. Kelly picked out one from the article that Mark would look good in, but an audience member disagreed. Kelly joked, “how long have you been married to Mark?” Michael admitted that he is not into the tank top trend, because it leaves “too much hanging out.”
