Padma In Ocean Drive: Decoded

24

Thanks ‘tehreem’ for bringing it to our attention, because we completely missed this spread of Padma.

‘Top Chef’ host Padma Lakshmi graced the February edition of ‘Ocean Drive’ magazine in a wide variety of outfits and bare minimum makeup (or what you might call the ‘no make-up’ makeup). I love her Dolce pic. Verrry fierce!

She also wears the cage sandals from the YSL Spring 2009 collection covered by ‘Fashion Critic‘.

  3. She has a great body and skin and hair but her expression is always very deadpan. If she had a more vibrant personalty, she would carry the clothes even better.

  4. @ Sonia99,

    am in agreement abt the deadpan expression. but i think therein lies the difference between a model and an actor/personality, correct? her expressions make this shoot appear very “stiff”. although i do like the clothes and how she has worn them. is it just me, or does something in her face remind you guys of malaika arora?

  5. Isn’t (wasn’t) she a model though (and then a cook and wife of Salman Rushdie)?
    I like them, I think her expression is very intense, but not deadpan- there is something very engaging in her eyes, and in her face in general.

  6. Sonia99- totally agree re the deadpan expression. When I watch her on Top Chef I want to shake her a bit! I guess in that way, she resembles Frieda in that her charm lies in that amazing smile (and legs too, in her case!)…

  7. I saw these pics on her website, along with her jewellery collection of which she is wearing her earings and bracelet in the 2 and 3rd pics.

  8. She looks a little to pale for me. More skin contrast would have bought the clothes out. I guess they wanted to a white on white photoshoot.
