Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos just got hilariously candid about their '90s and aughts style.

On Monday, the couple and co-hosts appeared on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, playing a quick round of "Red Carpet Glam or Not a Fan" which took them down memory lane.

Cohen had Ripa, 53, and Consuelos, 52, react to their looks from the ‘90s and early 2000s. Included in the roundup was the pair’s eye-popping patterned looks from the 2000 Soap Opera Digest Awards. The assignment, said Cohen: if you're feeling a look say, "Red Carpet Glam," but if you're not, say "Not a Fan."

When presented with the first look, a faux python romper and sparkly sarong, Ripa skipped the declaration, launching into a laugh-out-loud defense of her ensemble.

"Let me just say, the outfit is fabulous," Ripa raved.

But her thoughts on her glam? “I don’t know what was happening, but it was all in style back then," she said as Consuelos, lovingly called out her under-eye concealer.

Then, when Cohen presented Consuelos with a picture of his damask-print Gucci by Tom Ford suit (worn to the same event), the star admitted that he still owned it but wouldn’t rewear it.

As the game continued, fans got to see Consuelos’ laid-back event style. "Not a fan" he exclaimed of one showing him in flip-flops.

Also a topic of conversation: Ripa’s penchant for opulence, best showcased by her 1993 Daytime Emmys turquoise-and-gold Bob Mackie gown.

“You’re serving me soap star,” Cohen said of the All My Children actress who paired the look with huge, pageant-like hair and red lips. “In my defense I didn't do my own hair and makeup,” she commented.

The two also compared her show-stopping updo to Teresa Giudice’s $10,000 wedding-day hair. “I was the first [to wear it],” Ripa joked.

Ripa and Consuelos met in 1995 when they filmed a chemistry test for All My Children together. Consuelos was hired to play Ripa's love interest on the daytime drama and their relationship turned romantic soon after. After less than a year of dating, they eloped in Sin City and later welcomed sons Michael and Joaquin, now 21, and daughter Lola, now 22.

"It was really romantic, though. It was very sweet," Ripa told PEOPLE of returning to the chapel where they said “I Do” for a special episode of Live with Kelly and Mark.  "We cherish those memories, still to this day. It's been 28 years and we still can remember every minute of that wedding. And I mean, it was really minutes. It was like two minutes!"
