Padma Lakshmi Dishes on Her New Short Hair

When it comes to red carpet style, Padma Lakshmi has it nailed. In the past, the Top Chef host has flawlessly executed sexy cut-out dresses, princess-like ball gowns, and she’s even managed to pull off one of the hardest red carpet looks on numerous occasions. But if we had to narrow down some of our favorite fashion moments from the Love, Loss, and What We Ate author, her 2018 Billboard Music Awards ensemble would definitely be a top contender.

How to Watch

Watch Top Chef Season 21 Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo and next day on Peacock.

On Sunday, Padma attended the star-studded music event (along with Bravoleb pals Andy Cohen and Erika Girardi!) in a dress that would stop anyone in his or her tracks. The stunning gown, designed by The Blonds, was made up of a metallic silver strapless corset paired with a one-shoulder wrap and featured a super sexy thigh-high slit. The statuesque beauty, who presented that evening alongside Andy Cohen, completed her look with matching metallic strappy heels and a bronzed complexion paired with a nude lip. 

Erika hosted the award show’s red carpet donning a strapless black mini dress, which featured a long train. She added Erika Jayne vibes to her look with the addition of sapphire blue pumps and chunky bangles. Once done with her hosting duties, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills singer switched into flowy, black short-sleeve mini-dress.

Andy Cohen, who also was a presenter for the evening, made a very dapper appearance. The Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host pulled up in a bubblegum pink suit, which he paired with a black t-shirt (very casual chic). 

You can always count on these Bravolebs to bring it.
