When it comes to applying the term "ageless" to a human being, Padma Lakshmi definitely fits the bill. A throwback photo shared by the Bravo's Top Chef host proves that she has not aged a single day since she was a kid. And she basically just let the photos speak for themselves, simply captioning them: "India then/now."
It's certainly not the first time Padma has shed some light on her childhood. During an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden back in March, she shared she used to go by the name Angelique for a time in high school. While she says that now she considers it "embarrassing," she did offer up a good reason for why she decided to do it back then: "I wanted an exotic name, but I think not too exotic. And I got tired of telling people how to say my name, even though it's spelled pretty phonetically, right? Even people who saw me regularly, weekly, at the gym or something, would call me, 'Pamda,' 'Panda,' 'Padboo,' just all these names," she said. "So I just decided I was going to a new school, and I decided to do it."
Whether she's Angelique or Padma, she's always be pretty fab to us! Above, Padma talks about the photos she posts online, and you can check out more throwbacks of Padma, below.
