In truth, I am a single mother. But I don't feel alone at all in parenting my daughter. Krishna has a whole other side of her family who loves her, too. And so Krishna is parented by me, but also by her grandmother and aunts and cousins and uncles and friends.
Padma Lakshmi
I'm an immigrant kid who came to America from India when I was very young and grew up in New York City with a single mom and really was influenced by all of those immigrant cultures bumping up against each other.
Padma Lakshmi
I usually doze off between 7:30 and 9 p.m. while putting my baby to sleep. Then I suddenly wake up remembering I'm an adult with no bedtime. I spend the next four hours catching up on reading, e-mails, and other adult pursuits until I collapse for good until sunrise.
Padma Lakshmi
I like me better naked. I don't mean that in a vain way... When you put clothes on, you immediately put a character on. Clothes are adjectives, they are indicators. When you don't have any clothes on, it's just you, raw, and you can't hide.
Padma Lakshmi
I don't have any stigma attached to my body. When I'm in my own private space, I have very little on.
Padma Lakshmi
I tend to sleep in the nude... I'm a sensual-leaning woman. You have to use the word 'leaning' or it sounds like I'm boasting.
Padma Lakshmi
I have great empathy for all the contestants that come on 'Top Chef,' whether they go home right away or they make it to the finish line. It's a very vulnerable position they put themselves in and I feel for them.
Padma Lakshmi
Whenever I'm in sync with the trends, it's always an accident. I still love wearing clothes I've had for ten years. I think understated luxury is the chicest thing.
Padma Lakshmi
You don't want your jewelry to make you look fat. A lot of what's out there now does - you just wind up looking like a Christmas tree.
Padma Lakshmi
During the course of filming 'Top Chef,' I gain 15 lbs., so I'm used to needing two dress sizes.
Padma Lakshmi
I'm not attached to things at all. I'm very lucky to have quite a few beautiful things, but if I look back at my life, I was often happiest when I had very little.
Padma Lakshmi
The best thing you can do for someone is make them a beautiful plate of food. How else can you invade someone's body without actually touching them?
Padma Lakshmi
For a long time, I didn't know what I wanted to be when I grew up. I was desperate to find something that fit me and I just decided that if I could organically make a professional living out of the things that interested me, then I would be a happy person.
Padma Lakshmi
I wasn't like those girls who give birth and are back on the runway. It took me probably six months to gain 45 pounds and I would say it took me double that time to lose it.
Padma Lakshmi
I'm the kind of girl who thinks about what she's gonna cook for dinner when she's finishing her lunch.
Padma Lakshmi
I never Tweet about my daughter. Never. I just want to be respectful of her privacy. My job as a mom is to know when to open my mouth and when not to.
Padma Lakshmi
I was the first Indian model to have a career in Paris, Milan and New York.
Padma Lakshmi
I love seafood. I'm not a vegetarian but I'm probably a pescetarian.
Padma Lakshmi
I've always thought the back is one of the most beautiful parts of a woman. I've created four versions of the front-to-back necklace which actually gives you two necklaces in one. I love the way they swing and catch the light as a woman is walking away. You almost want to pull on it and stop her!
Padma Lakshmi
Jewelry should not upstage you. I pick one hot point on my body that I'm going to highlight. Let one area do the singing - you don't want to hear three songs at once.
Padma Lakshmi
I think wine is such a big universe that it's kind of like food - it's intimidating to a lot of people, myself included.
Padma Lakshmi
I'm not of the American ilk that, you know, your lover needs to be your best friend and know you inside out. I think he should know you well enough to please you. Otherwise, what secret will there be to tell him when you're ninety?
