The 46-year-old former model, Padma Lakshmi looked chic as she added her own twist to the little black business suit as she arrived at Advertising Week, the annual celebration of the industry people, beginning Sept. 26 in New York. The beauty, who hails from India, sizzled in a black sleeveless crop top and a black midi skirt with a thigh-high split. With her raven black tresses smoothed back into a pony tail, she completed her ensemble with over-the-knee boots – in sexy black leather, of course – and a black handbag.
Padma Lakshmi is the host of TV hit Top Chef, a best-selling cookbook author and an entrepreneur. All good reasons why Padma Lakshmi was invited to speak at the CEO Connectors panel at the TimesCenter stage in Times Square, Manhattan, during Advertising Week on Tuesday, September 26th.
The event was packed with A-list thought leaders and a star-studded evening roster of special events. Annually hosted in landmark venues throughout Times Square, Advertising Week has added the iconic Town Hall to its list for 2016, where headliners, including Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg and Snapchat’s Imran Khan, who are scheduled to speak in a special content series. An opening gala for The Week’s 13th anniversary in New York, hosted in the spectacular and highly anticipated new Oculus building in lower Manhattan, will be among the special events.
Lakshmi has her own line of home decor at Bloomingdale’s and food products under the Padma’s Easy Exotic brand. Padma took to Instagram to share the details of her outfit saying: ‘About today! Wearing a @jw_anderson top, a @pleinsudfaycalamor skirt that I bought in Paris when I was modelling 20 years ago, bag: @hermes and shoes: custom made boots by my dear friends the capazzo brothers of @costumenational.’
Aside from her gig as Top Chef host, Padma launched her first jewellery line, called simply ‘Padma’ in 2009.
