OMG, You Have to See This Photo of Padma Lakshmi as a Blonde

There's also a snap of the Top Chef host as a redhead!

Padma Lakshmi recently snipped off a few inches of her signature black tresses. Though we're used to seeing the Top Chef host play around with her length, she hasn't been one to change up her color much — after all, why mess with dark, glossy perfection? So it was a rare treat when the foodie took to Instagram to offer a peek at alternate hair-hue realities. 

On May 1, Padma shared fun snaps of herself playing dress-up with a variety of wigs. In one photo, she stared into the camera while letting long, straight blonde hair hang down. In another snap, the judge wore long, curly brown locks and gazed pensively into the distance. And in a third picture, Padma flipped cherry-red hair over her shoulder.

Take a peek at the playful beauty experiment, below. (Be sure to scroll through!) 

We must admit: we kind of love Padma with those Rapunzel-style, tumbling curls. But to be honest, we can't imagine a style that wouldn't work on the stunner.
