'Top Chef' Padma Lakshmi fashions

"Top Chef" visits our nation's capital for its seventh season, and Eric Ripert will replace Toby Young on the judging panel. Despite a new face and venue, however, what hasn't changed is host Padma Lakshmi's colorful and varied fashions. It's not difficult to see that the wardrobe department has fun outfitting the former model, who's always game to where whatever, whether it's the classic little black dress, cowboying it up with a vest and boots or gowns that are reminiscent of saris. Check out Padma's apparel, aka the Look of Lakshmi. Hanh Nguyen, Zap2it
