Both Ripa and Lola posed for cameras outside of the American Museum of Natural History in New York City wearing similar high-neck, long-sleeved mini dresses for the evening. The 49-year-old TV show host opted for a sparkly black velvet Balmain dress which she paired with embellished black heels while Lola wore a navy silk dress from Reformation that she paired with a drop necklace and white Off-White heeled booties with their signature “For Walking” printed on the side.

First she played sleep away camp, then she played dorm room,” Ripa added. “So this is like a girl who was meant to live away from us. She was born to live outside of the house!” When Cooper asked if she had dropped Lola off at school, Ripa joked that her daughter’s enthusiasm to move out made for an easy process. “Dropped her off? She jumped out of a moving car and was like, ‘Bye!’ Bye, bye!’” Ripa teased.
