Two instant thoughts ran through our minds when we saw Padma Lakshmi in this look. 1. How did Padma Lakshmi get such killer abs?? And 2. Is Padma Lakshmi wearing a baby vest from the '80s?!
Though, we're not sure there was ever a decade in which the mini cowboy accessory was technically in style. The Bravo show host looks like one part Moroccan princess, one part sexy rodeo regular, in this super-exposed style. And as far as we're concerned, no parts of that are actually stylish.
We love a simple black maxi skirt. We love a simple, 3/4 sleeved cropped top. Their forces combined though, gives off a middle-schooler-who-snuck-out-of-the-house sort of vibe. There's just too much space between the bottom and top for adult, red carpet wear. And that's outside of the tiny, metallic tuxedo piece that ruins what little good there is about this getup.
Sorry Padma. We know you were trying to show off your impressive body (which is very, very impressive BTW), but the look just ended up showing off a poor sense of fashion.
What's your say? Too harsh or right on point?
