Padma Lakshmi In Naeem Khan – 2013 Alzheimer’s Association Rita Hayworth 30th Anniversary

Padma Lakshmi In Naeem Khan - 2013 Alzheimer's Association Rita Hayworth 30th Anniversary

Padma Lakshmi attended the 2013 Alzheimer’s Association 30th Anniversary Rita Hayworth Gala held at The Waldorf Astoria in New York City yesterday evening.

The TV host looked outstanding wearing one of her – and my – favourite designers: Naeem Khan.

Fresh from his Spring 2014 collection, she selected a glorious brushstroke-stripe-print strapless gown with a multitude of colours which complemented her skin tone.

With just a few gold bangles and a copper lip colour, she opted to keep her glossy tresses tumbling around her shoulders.

I love the ethnic feel of this look. It feels like it has an interesting story or journey behind it: a rich heritage, if you will.

    Wow, what elongating effect a print can have!

      Make this the 4th ‘WOW’ in a row! Dying to see this on the RC, and can’t think of anyone else who could’ve worn it as well. Perfection!

    I’m not wowed, but she does look good.

    Glorious colours, interesting and flattering print, she owns this look.

    I was loving the look. But I wish the hair was tied back. The gown needed all the attention.

    This dress just made my day. Beautiful. Can’t help but wish for something different with the hair but I am not sure precisely what.

      ITA. A sleek ponytail would have worked for me.

    I usually hate seeing fall looks too early but I rarely have that issue seeing summer looks during fall. The gown is vibrant yet elegant and looks marvellous against her flawless skin. I wish her hair had been up though.

    I’m stunned!!! So beautiful. That print is out of this world.

    she looks amazing but my only problem is its cold in NYC. i would love to have seen this dress at a spring or summer event.

  11. dee October 23, 2013 at 13:54 #

    I don’t like this gown.

  12. DM October 23, 2013 at 14:19 #

    I like the print a lot, it’s fresh and unusual. Padma glows in the warm colors. But the only issue is it seems too tight on the top and looks uncomfortable.

    Gorgeous. DBOTW contender for me.

    • Rebecca Z October 23, 2013 at 15:16 #

      Darn–you know what I mean.

    Loove it. I would prefer a bun but the dress is beautiful and interesting.

  15. Lisa October 23, 2013 at 16:32 #

    LOVE it!

  16. Sharon October 23, 2013 at 20:16 #

    Really gorgeous! I haven’t claimed a BDOTY yet, but this may be it.

  17. Nat39 October 23, 2013 at 20:26 #

    This gown woke me up, LOVE it, the exciting print and ethnic feel of it. The hair is a bit of a let down, but I love the gown so much I can overlook the hair. Without a doubt, BDOTW worthy for me.

    Gorgeous, BUT, the wrong dress for his event and for autum. Shame

  19. EmmaWoodhouse October 28, 2013 at 14:15 #

    Beautiful, vibrant, interesting dress–pleased to see it worn. She looks great. Might have worn the hair up but her hair is beautiful.
