We're Calling It: Padma Lakshmi Is the Queen of National Bikini Day

The Top Chef host knows how to work some sexy swimwear. 

Happy National Bikini Day, friends! (Yes, it’s actually a thing.)

In honor of the national swimwear holiday, Padma Lakshmi dropped a fiery bikini throwback pic of herself, which honestly looks like it belongs on a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover. 

In the smokin’ pic, the Top Chef host posed in a sexy snakeskin-print string bikini while she basked in the sun looking completely unbothered. Her new shorter hair was styled sleek and straight and she donned a full glam beat to match. How can one look this flawless under the hot sun?! Seriously, teach us your ways Padma.

Fortunately, Padma has always been very open about her key to maintaining a fit figure. When the Indian beauty is not filiming for Top Chef (during which she can consume up tp 8,000 calories a day), she maintains a strict clean diet. "I eat a lot of vegetables and fruit," she told The Feast. "I eat fish and chicken and shellfish. I also eat a lot of lentils and beans. When I’m not on the show, I’m pretty plant-based. I was raised as a vegetarian in India and in America. We had a vegetarian home. I didn’t really start eating meat until I was a teenager, so I’m used to eating like that. It’s hard for your body to process meat.”

As for her workout routine, the TV host is a fan of pilates.
