We know what you’re thinking. She’s gorgeous. But aside from her beauty, Padma Lakshmi is quite talented. The 43-year-old Indian American is a cookbook author, actress, model and television host.
Known for her award-winning cookbooks, Lakshmi has been the host of the reality show Top Chef since 2006.
Here, Lakshmi is seen taking a break from hosting to relax on a beach in Miami. What caught our eye was her gorgeous way of accessorizing her scarf from Leigh & Luca New York. The official Leigh & Luca New York website describes their pieces as:
Highly addictive expressions of individual style that beg to be worn in a variety of ways. LEIGH & LUCA’s alluring collection captures the essence of ancient spiritual cloth with modern motifs and patterns, season after season. The relevant and trent-driven designs are sensuous, edgy and modern, capturing that downtown vibe with uptown notes of luxury and style.
Creative Director Susann Luca travels the world looking for inspiration and more and is inspired by the less structured garments that stem from exotic cultures such as Asia and Africa. Each piece is woven on antique wooden looms using the highest quality cashmeres, silks and cottons, and can take up to a full day to make. Embellished with innovative hand embroidery, printing, and flocking techniques, the oversized scarves are made with love in Inner Mongolia.
Utilizing the color contrast of the scarf with her bikini top, Lakshmi wraps the scarf around her waist like a sarong. Although it may be a bit too cold for you to venture off to the beach during the winter time, there are many other ways to wear Leigh & Luca New York scarves.
