Padma Lakshmi In Monique Lhuillier – 5th Annual Blossom Ball

Padma Lakshmi In Monique Lhuillier - 5th Annual Blossom Ball

Padma Lakshmi made a bold statement when she took to the red carpet at Capitale in New York City yesterday evening for The Endometriosis Foundation of America’s Celebration of The 5th Annual Blossom Ball.

She wore a Monique Lhuillier Spring 2013 gown with an kaleidoscopic crane print.

You have to have a lot of confidence to pull off this look, so luckily Padma has that in spades.

Instead of letting her gown do all the work, she added gold statement earrings, a red manicure and hot-pink lips to her look.

Do you think she over-cooked it or are you glad she amped up the look?

Who Wore Zuhair Murad Couture Better…Padma Lakshmi or Alessandra Ambrosio?

Who Wore Zuhair Murad Couture Better Padma Lakshmi or Alessandra Ambrosio

Back in September, Padma Lakshmi attended the 2012 Creative Arts Emmy Awards wearing a Zuhair Murad Spring 2012 Couture gown.

The sheer strapless figure-hugging gown with floral embroidery and a corseted back was simply styled with a side-swept ponytail.

A month later, Alessandra Ambrosio wore the same sexy frock with straps to the amfAR Inspiration Gala held in California, with a sugary half-up, half-down hairstyle.

This was an easy win for Padma. Her sexy curves make this gown much more appealing.

Padma Lakshmi In Monique Lhuillier – 2012 Emmy Awards

Padma Lakshmi gave me my first set of goosebumps tonight when she hit the red carpet at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live this evening for the 2012 Emmy Awards.

This orange Monique Lhuillier Resort 2013 strapless trumpet gown is to die for.

The beauty is in its simplicity and relaxed styling.

Opting for minimal jewels, natural makeup and glossy, wavy locks, the gown does all the talking.

2012 Creative Arts Emmy Awards Red Carpet Round Up

Here are the rest of the looks which hit the red carpet on Saturday evening at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards.

Jennifer Morrison: The actress would have stood out more than most wearing a vibrant red Romona Keveza Spring 2012 silk/chiffon gown with a plunging neckline. A black Daniel Swarovski ‘Gala’ clutch with silver crystal border and a hot red lip colour to match her dress completed her look.

Brenda Strong: The ‘Dallas’ actress shimmered down the red carpet looking sensational wearing a Marc Bouwer gown with bold shoulders and silver sequin details throughout. Slightly surprised by the nude sandals and the contrasting gold clutch, but it’s a stunning look nonetheless.

Padma Lakshmi: The TV host looked stunning wearing a Zuhair Murad Spring 2012 sheer black gown with an embroidered floral detail and a corseted back. She wisely let the gown do all the talking.

Julia Ormond: The ‘Mad Men’ actress opted for a red David Meister signature gown with a cowl-neckline which she styled with a gold python Devi Kroell large Mercer clutch and matching strappy sandals. I love the statement earrings and the side-swept wavy locks.

Padma Lakshmi In Naeem Khan – 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards

Padma Lakshmi attended the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards, held at the Alice Tully Hall in New York City last night.

The TV host was seated directly opposite me during the Naeem Khan Fall 2012 presentation, so I’m not surprised she snapped up this stunning gown.

I also had my eye on this navy-and-black abstract-beaded georgette trumpet gown with a jet fringe beaded bodice, but it was on my wish list for Emily Blunt.

Padma more than does justice to this gown, so the sighting of it on the red carpet fills me with joy.

A braided updo and barely-there makeup provided the finishing touches.

More From The Sex And The City 2 New York Premiere Red Carpet

Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon and Kim Cattrall blew everyone away on the red carpet for the New York premiere of Sex And The City 2 last night.

Here is a look at the rest of the celebs who attended.

Becki Newton looked adorable wearing a Celine Resort 2010 blazer with cute black leather shorts.

Brian Atwood heels and a Chanel clutch completed her look.

Cute, yet chic.

Jessica Szohr opted for a tougher look wearing a black Willow Fall 2010 tuxedo jumpsuit with a twisted front.

I do like the jumpsuit but the pants are too long on Jessica.  Her black bandage wedges which are also from the Willow Fall 2010 collection didn’t excite me.

Jennifer Love Hewitt decided to be original opting for a Herve Leger crystal-embellished bandage dress from the Resort 2010 collection which she paired with Christian Louboutin Studio 120 peep-toe pumps.

As much as I prefer the runway Herve Leger dresses, she does look smokin’ hot in her signature dress.

Becki’s Celine jacket is my favourite out of these looks.

Whitney Port wore a black georgette Moschino Spring 2010 dress with front twist detail and a poufy skirt.

Writer Candace Bushnell opted for a crystal embellished look from the Miu Miu Spring 2010 collection with Miu Miu glitter-embellished platform sandals.

Padma Lakshmi wore a Naeem Khan Fall 2008 sleeveless white peony-embroidered flared dress.

This was originally presented as a dress with fur cuffed sleeves.

Lebanese actress Raya Meddine – who appears in the SATC 2 movie – wore a black Rami Kashou Spring 2010 silk organza pleated rose gown.

Keri Hilson wore this same dress to the NAACP Image Awards earlier this year.

I love how Raya let her dress do all the talking.

Michelle Trachtenberg wore a red hot Notte by Marchesa strapless lace dress with draped chiffon overlay.

Amanda Peet opted for a very casual “I’m just popping down to the Mall look”, wearing an Isabel Marant printed dress and khaki jacket. Prada heels completed her look.

Vanessa Williams was gorgeous in a purple draped dress, whilst Melania Trump wore a Catherine Malandrino ruffled mini dress with nude Louboutin’s.
