Padma Lakshmi

Talk about turning up the heat!

Top Chef star Padma Lakshmi did just that last Saturday, while enjoying a little sand and surf in Miami.

Sporting a sexy blue fringed two-piece, the 42-year-old TV personality was all smiles as she showed off her killer curves.

Then again, who can blame her for grinning when she looks this fab, right?

Laksmi recently told Playboy she's "a truck driver trapped in this body."

If that's the case, do you mind if we hitch a ride?
