Padma Lakshmi serves up style in slinky snake print blouse and skinny jeans as she prepares to bake cookies on Good Morning America
Padma Lakshmi served up some style as she arrived to Good Morning America in New York on Monday.
The Top Chef host, 51, put on a head-turning display as she made her way to the studio wearing a slinky snake print blouse, skinny jeans and fur-accented jacket.
Padma’s glossy brunette locks were styled with a center part and two gold barrettes clipped on either side of her head.

She further dressed up the glam look with a gold necklace and a slim leather belt cinching into her narrow waist.
The Taste The Nation star finished off the look with a pair of black heels.
Even while stepping out in the chilly big city, Padma did not let that stop her from putting a smile on her face as she waved to fans while heading into the studio.
Padma was appearing on Good Morning America to teach viewers how to make thumbprint cookies, which are based on the Cuban pastry pastelitos.

The recipe was inspired by the Cuban community in Miami, who appear in Padma’s show Taste The Nation.
‘The recipe that we’re making today is based on these Cuban pastries called pastelitos,’ Padma explained.
‘And you did an episode of your show about the Cuban community, and this is kind of inspired by?’
‘Yes, exactly, Taste The Nation: Holiday Edition goes to four communities,’ Padma explained.

She also discussed her new children’s book, Tomatoes For Neela, which she described as a ‘labor of love.’
‘It’s the story about a family like me and my daughter who cook and taste recipes, test recipes for a living. And it’s all about getting kids involved in food, because the earlier you get kids involved in food, the more they are to enjoy the food they make it and eat it.
‘If a kid has a hand in making her own food, she’s more likely to feel proud of that dish and eat well for the rest of her life, long after you’re gone.’
Padma shares daughter Krishna Thea Lakshmi-Dell with her ex, venture capitalist Adam Dell.
Tomatoes for Neela was released August 31, 2021.
