Padma Lakshmi In Ralph Rucci – HBO’s Emmy Awards Post-Awards Reception

Padma Lakshmi In Ralph Rucci - HBO’s Emmy Awards Post-Awards Reception

Padma Lakshmi joined a host of stars at HBO’s 2014 Emmys after-party held at The Plaza at the Pacific Design Center on Monday (August 25) in Los Angeles, California following the main event, where her show ‘Top Chef’ was nominated for ‘Best Reality Programme’.

Keeping it simple and oh so chic, the host wore an elegant white crepe gown from Ralph Rucci.

The beauty is in its simplicity and clean lines, with a silvery panel at the back adding some intrigue.

Fred Leighton jewels and a half-up, half-down hairstyle rounded out the perfect look.

Padma Lakshmi In Sophie Theallet – 6th Annual Blossom Ball

Padma Lakshmi In Sophie Theallet - 6th Annual Blossom Ball

Padma Lakshmi attended the 6th Annual Blossom Ball Benefiting the Endometriosis Foundation Of America at 583 Park Avenue on Friday (March 7) in New York City.

With everyone dressing down post Oscars, Padma bucked the trend and gave us an uber-glamorous look.

The TV host wore a sexy Sophie Theallet Spring 2014 floor-length scarlet silk one-shoulder gown featuring not only a daring thigh-high slit, but also a cut-out at the waist.

Flawless makeup, sleek tresses and opulent gold earrings rounded out her look.

Padma Lakshmi In J. Mendel – 2014 amfAR New York Gala

Padma Lakshmi In J Mendel - 2014 amfAR New York Gala

Padma Lakshmi joined a bevy of beauties on the red carpet for the 2014 amfAR New York Gala held at Cipriani Wall Street on Wednesday (February 5) in New York City.

Wearing a striking backless J. Mendel Fall 2013 gown, the draped bodice is artfully slashed through the front to form the wraparound halter strap.

Opting for onyx drop earrings, she rounded out her look with kohl-rimmed eyes and a simple updo.

Less is more. I love that her beauty shines through here unaided by too many distracting trinkets.

Citymeals-on-Wheels 27th Annual ‘Power Lunch for Women’

Citymeals-on-Wheels 27th Annual Power Lunch for Women

On Friday, Citymeals-On-Wheels hosted its 27th annual Power Lunch for Women at The Plaza Hotel in New York City — and as is to be expected, the stars in attendance dressed the part of “ladies who lunch.”

Padma Lakshmi: The ‘Top Chef’ host chose a nude-coloured Roland Mouret sheath with a simple black bow-tie sash at the waist. While cut at the knee, her cap-sleeved number showed off ample cleavage via a low boxed-out neckline — it’s certainly a sexier daytime silhouette, but one that she pulled off without a hitch. A gold pendant necklace and embellished pumps completed the look.

Brooke Shields: Just two days after Victoria Beckham wore her own tri-colour Fall 2013 dress, Brooke Shields stepped out in the same exact frock across the pond, styling it with black pumps, a textured black clutch, and gold cuff. While I love the bright pattern, this dress wasn’t the most flattering choice.

Debra Messing: The actress stepped out in a long-sleeved black dress with silver-band details at the waist and bodice. Her futuristic fashion statement — or attempt at one — was accessorized with large earrings, black clutch, black heels, and a silver smokey eye.

Knee-length hems aside, these looks ran the gamut. Have a favourite, or is this power lunch a fashion miss?

Best Dressed Of The Week – Anja Rubik In Elie Saab Couture, Padma Lakshmi In Naeem Khan, Michael B. Jordan In Calvin Klein & Idris Elba In Burberry Prorsum

Best Dressed Of The Week - Anja Rubik In Elie Saab Couture, Padma Lakshmi In Naeem Khan

Anja Rubik won best dressed of the week by a very large margin in her Elie Saab Couture gown. You guys were truly enamoured by how graceful she looked in her sheer cape gown which she styled with a silver Corto Moltedo clutch.

There were so many I could’ve picked this week, but in the end I went with Padma Lakshmi in Naeem Khan. As a lover of colour, I was totally captivated by her strapless, striped gown.

Best Dressed Of The Week Michael B

The battle between Michael B. Jordan and Robert Pattinson raged on all weekend. His cool-blue Calvin Klein Collection suit styled with a grey tie was just 1% more stylish than Rob’s on this occasion.

I went with Idris Elba in Burberry Prorsum. I loved his winter coat and the overall laidback vibe of his rugged, semi-dressy look.
