Padma Lakshmi on Her Dramatic Emmys Look: "I Wasn't Sure I'd Have the Guts to Wear It"
Celebrating Top Chef's nomination for Outstanding Reality Competition Program, Padma Lakshmi opted for a strapless orange Monique Lhuillier design -- but the Top Chef hostess almost never made her red carpet look a reality.
"I wasn't sure I'd have the guts to wear it because it's a lot of dress, but I'm glad I did. I feel pretty in it!" Lakshmi, 42, told Us Weekly of her strapless fishtail frock.
Lakshmi wasn't the only star who put Us on notice at Sunday's Emmys. In our post-show wrap-up video, panelists Jai Rodriquez (Malibu Country, Queer Eye), The Insider's Keltie Colleen and Us Weekly's own Rebecca Bienstock can't help but gush over the celebs who followed Lakshmi's lead and took fashion risks on TV's biggest night.
