Gail Simmons Reveals the "Most Surreal" Part of Being on Top Chef

The #TopChef judge's time at the Emmys will give you instant joy.

By Laura Rosenfeld

Top Chef was nominated for its 11th consecutive Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program during Sunday night's ceremony, and the judges' table came out in full force to celebrate the series' honor. 

Padma Lakshmi turned heads in a vibrant pink Christian Siriano gown and a dramatic, new hairstyle.

Gail Simmons also looked incredibly elegant in her metallic teal Prada gown. The Top Chef judge was beaming with elation and excitement for the big day. "Smile! It's #Emmy Day. Most surreal, celebratory part of my job," Gail gushed on Instagram. "Eleven years later @bravotopchef still in the running and damn proud of it."
