Padma Lakshmi Emmys Look

Padma Lakshmi is on a realness kick, and we are here for each and every one of her body-positive moments. Whether she's fighting ageism, preaching about self-care and acceptance, or giving us her exact weight, Bravo's Top Chef host always keeps it refreshingly real. And in a recent Instagram post, she revealed more than your typical behind-the-scenes red carpet content in a truly open and honest moment. 

How to Watch

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

On October 10, Padma shared a snap on Instagram as she prepped for her red carpet run for the 2019 Emmy Awards. In the pic, Padma posed holding her bare chest wearing nothing more than some strategic shapewear and a ton of diamonds. 

Padma was all glammed up, probably waiting for her white halter-neck Christian Siriano gown to be given to her — and to be honest, she's never looked better. Who needs expensive couture when you can look this amazing minus the gown?
