“Top Chef” host Padma Lakshmi is one of the most beautiful women on TV. She bears it all for Allure in their May 2009 issue:
ALLURE: What did you do to prepare for the shoot?
PADMA LAKSHMI: “I exercised a little bit extra, but I actually think I look better when I have a little bit of weight on–my breasts are fuller, and I'm curvier than when I'm at my thinnest.”
ALLURE: Are you confident about your body?
PL: “Yes; I like the way I look. I think I look better now than I did in my 20s, because I'm more confident about my body–and I don't want to look like anyone but myself.”
ALLURE: Do you sleep naked?
PL: “I tend to sleep in the nude. I'm an innately tactile person and a very sensual-leaning woman. You have to use the word ‘leaning' or it sounds like I'm boasting! When I'm in my own private space, I do spend time with very little on.”
