Padma Lakshmi was the first Indian model to have a career in Paris, Milan and New York. 'I'm the first one to admit that I was a novelty.'
Padma Lakshmi slipped on a skimpy two-piece for a walk in the sand in Nassau this week. The remarkable thing is that this happened exactly a year since giving birth to Krishna exactly one year ago.
Who Wants A Father?
On February 20, 2010, Lakshmi gave birth to a baby girl named Krishna Thea Lakshmi. Although the father's identity was not initially given, it was later revealed to be Adam Dell. In January 2011, Dell sued Lakshmi for full custody of their daughter.
Top Chef Host
Padma's Bahamas getaway coincides with the current season of Top Chef All-Stars, which she hosts and which has been full of tough challenges and fun episodes.
Designers' Favourite Model
She has modeled for top designers such as Emanuel Ungaro, Ralph Lauren, and Alberta Ferretti and appeared in ad campaigns for Roberto Cavalli and Versus. She was a favorite model of the photographer Helmut Newton, whose photographs of her often highlighted the large scar on her right arm.
Right now, she's also busy juggling motherhood with her career! The superwoman will do a great job, of that we are sure.
