She may be pretty as a picture, but Kelly Ripa claims she hasn't ruled out plastic surgery.

"I really don't think there is anything wrong with it," the Live! star, 38, told PEOPLE Tuesday at an Electrolux photo shoot in Manhattan. "I mean, I always like the way I look if I'm on the cover of a magazine – when they airbrush me, I always look so much better.

"Why is that? Well, because they smooth out fine lines." Happily married to actor Mark Consuelos and the mother of three – Michael, 11; Lola, 7; and Joaquin, 5 – Ripa does not think she is ready to go under the knife, but admits she is definitely open to the option when and if the time should come.

"I am in a place in my life where I don't think there is anything wrong with it. I mean, I get my teeth cleaned if they are dirty. If my roots darken, I get them colored," she said.

Not that outer beauty is the only thing on Ripa's mind. With the help of Electrolux, she is working to help raise $500,000 for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

"This way people can do something good for women," she said.
