Here's Proof Padma Lakshmi and Her Daughter Ruled the Emmys

The Bravo's Top Chef host and her kid slayed the event, (little) hands down.

When Padma Lakshmi headed out to the 2019 Emmy Awards on Sunday (September 22), she had the perfect date by her side: her lookalike daughter.

How to Watch

Catch up on Top Chef on Peacock or the Bravo App.

Together the mother-daughter duo slayed the event, not that we would expect anything less from these two glamour girls. Padma was on hand as Bravo's Top Chef was nominated — and she celebrated the show's big nomination alongside her daughter, lovingly nicknamed Little Hands, as well as her fellow Top Chef judges Gail Simmons, Tom Colicchio, and Nilou Motamed, who all also attended the splashy event.

Padma and Little Hands were in great company inside the awards show as Padma was seated next to The Voice host Carson Daly. And Padma summed up Little Hands as her date on Instagram Stories: "My very tired, very hungry, very beautiful date."

While Top Chef didn't take home an award this year, Padma, who wore a dress designed by Bravo's Project Runway mentor Christian Siriano (so much Bravo love, y'all!), reflected on how amazing working on the show always is: "Even though we didn’t win this year, being a part of [Top Chef] makes me feel like a winner every year. I’m endlessly grateful to the producers, cast, crew and of course [Tom] and [Gail] for their hard work for 16 seasons and counting and my beloved team."

So, could it be that with her attending the Emmys alongside her mom, there's a chance Little Hands may one day follow in her mama's elegant footsteps?

Below, Padma opens up more about her daughter.
