In Keltie Knight’s glamorous Thanksgiving Day Parade

Keltie Knight takes an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of her preparation for the 2022 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade with Page Six Style.

The “E! News chief correspondent co-hosts the annual CBS special with Entertainment Tonight host Kevin Frazier Thursday in New York City, giving us all the details on her vacation glamour.

“Every year people text me, ‘I can’t wait to see your coat!’ This year I bought my yellow Kate Spade coat second-hand at Poshmark,” Knight, 40, tells us.

“Yellow is my ‘power color’ and I couldn’t find anything new that felt special enough for such a big day, so I looked through all the resale sites. I love the faux fur collar, the gold buttons and it’s really warm!”

The “LadyGang” podcast host added what fans habit seen on tv is she wears all layers under the coat.

“I rock wool socks, big boots and thermal layers,” she shares. “And put heat packs everywhere I can!”

You may have seen Knight’s favorite Thanksgiving Day Parade accessory because it’s something she cares about.

“Actually, a special piece of jewelry belongs to this day. My first year hosting the parade, my husband [Chris Knight] surprised me in the hotel room with this beautiful diamond ‘Love’ ring from Sydney Evan,” she says, noting that she always uses Shinery jewelry cleaner before a big event to make her diamonds ‘sparkle’.

“It’s been my lucky charm ever since. I wear it every year.”

For her beauty routine, Knight tells Page Six Style that it’s just as important to prep her skin the night before as it is the day of the show.

“The most important thing for the parade is to get my skin super healthy so it stays plump and hydrated throughout the long day and in the cold weather and wind,” she explains.

“The night before the show, I have an intensive pre-show routine that includes a Josie Maran scrub, a St. Dennis Gross scrub, a Tatcha Radiance mask, the Sunday Riley Good Genes treatment, a Malibu treatment for my hair and a Solawave red light therapy wand. She continues. “I’m going to sleep in the Bondi Sands self-tanning mask.”

Early Thursday morning, Knight says it’s “all about the layers of moisture.”

“I use Clarins V-Facial, Sunday Riley CEO’s afterglow cream, EMBER Wellness facial cupping to get rid of nighttime puffiness, Saint Jane serum and a layer of my favorite $12 skin cream of all time, Weleda’s Skin food,” she reveals. She told us that “the angels of Victoria’s Secret” taught her this beauty secret.

“Then I head to the set with the brow mask and V-line chin lift mask. I look crazy but it works!”

The former Radio City Rockette dancer has tapped Karmen Haik and Jamina Lawrence to help with Glam this year.

“They have been my New York glam team for over a decade. We’ve done all the big events together, from the Grammy Awards to the Met Gala,” she says. “Karmen really knows how to make my make-up last in the wind and cold. She knows my nose will run. She understands that it’s often so cold that my eyelashes freeze.”

Knight told Page Six Style that she wanted “super clean and pretty fresh makeup” for the parade this year.

They created the stunning look with kogendo Moisture Foundation, Patrick Ta “Major Dimension” eyeshadow palette, MakeUp forever lipstick in “Anywhere Caffeine”, Charlotte Tilbury Contour Wand, Anastasia Brow Freeze and Fenty Beauty Diamond Bomb.

“I’m honored to be a part of people’s Thanksgiving traditions. Hosting the parade was one of my career highlights and spending time with my co-host Kevin Frazier is a real pleasure,” says Knight.

“I hope everyone enjoys their day, whatever that means to them – whether it’s with family, adoptive family, or like me, working and watching the Radio City Rockettes at night!”
