Keke Palmer from GMA3 Bares Plenty of Skin in Cropped Denim Top and Matching Pants in Recent Photo

Keke Palmer played the perfect tease in a recent Instagram photo as she showed off lots of skin in a denim crop top and matching pants. The multi-hyphenate entertainer had a phenomenal 2019, and it looks like she's starting off the New Year the same way.

Palmer, 26, has always been unapologetic about who she is, and that quality shines through in everything, from social media posts to co-hosting duties on ABC's "Strahan, Sara and Keke."

A few days ago, the "Akeelah and the Bee" star took to Instagram with a picture of herself wearing a denim crop top and matching bell-bottoms. She paired the outfit with a black velvet jacket while appearing to stare into space.

Palmer remains levelheaded and is one of the few that seem to have escaped the child star curse. She attributes that to her parents' "overprotectiveness"

"Memories," Palmer captioned the snapshot that has since garnered thousands of likes and comments. "That stance though!!" one Instagram fan gushed while several others wanted to know where the actress got her ensemble.

KEKE PALMER'S YEAR

Palmer had quite a fantastic year in 2019. Not only did the former child actor get to star alongside Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, and Cardi B in the hit movie "Hustlers," but she also clinched a co-hosting gig on Good Morning America's "Strahan, Sara and Keke."

Palmer had filled in for co-host Sara Haines during her maternity leave last summer and proved to be such a hit with viewers that she became a permanent fixture. She joined Haines and former NFL star Michael Strahan on the job.

BIRTHDAY SURPRISE

The news was announced in August during an episode of the show that aired on Palmer’s birthday. "Keke was so great. She came in this summer when I was on maternity leave, and Michael was doing Michael," Haines shared.

"We love Keke because she stepped up to the plate and joined our family and carried the ball," she continued. "We thought we'd do something really special for you."

VIRAL SUCCESS

Palmer could not have known that, only a month later, she would become a viral meme thanks to Vanity Fair's lie detector test video. When a photo of former Vice President Dick Cheney was placed before the actress, she could not identify him.

"I knew I was getting tricked. I'm like, I don't know who that is," she told Refinery29 of the incident in December. "Even if they had the name next to the photo I would've been like, Who the [expletive]?"

That birthed the now-famous words that have been borrowed by millions across the world, including Cardi B and Beyoncé:

"I hate to say it. I hope I don’t sound ridiculous. I don’t know who this man is. I mean, he could be walking down the street and I wouldn't know a thing. Sorry to this man."

STAYING ON COURSE

"Sweetie, the sorry to this man meme has definitely changed my life," Palmer admitted to TIME in November when she was one of the honorees at the 2019 TIME 100 Next event. "I could have never imagined saying sorry to a man could be turning out this way."

Despite the fame and fortune, Palmer remains levelheaded and is one of the few that seem to have escaped the child star curse. She attributes that to her parents' "overprotectiveness" and their efforts to make sure she never lost touch with her culture.
