'Top Chef' Host Padma Lakshmi Hangs Her Nude Photos For Everyone To See — So Good Or No Good?

Padma is proud to display a pregnant nude photo of herself in her home for family and friends to see! Would YOU be comfortable with everyone seeing you naked?

Most women with a bun in the oven would describe themselves as bloated, fat, unattractive and missing their former frames, but for Padma Lakshmi, it’s the complete opposite.

In 2009, the celebrity foodie posed for Page Six magazine nude and pregnant, joining the elite crew of past expectant celebrities like 48-year-old Demi Moore and Britney Spears, 30, who took it all off to show the world pregnancy is a beautiful thing.

Today, Padma is still proud of her pregnant posing and has it displayed as art in her design studio to enjoy.

“I think those are beautiful pictures and they hang in our design studio and my daughter passes those pictures every day,” she said. “I think a woman’s body is one of the most beautiful creations on this Earth and it’s not what you do, it’s how you do it. Michelangelo did nudes too. There’s a difference between a beautiful photo and an exploited photo, and I don’t believe there’s anything exploited in the photos that I’ve taken.”

Easy for Padma to say, since she looks to be a perfect 10 whether or not she’s pregnant — but Padma said staying in shape isn’t always her top priority.

”It’s not easy, and the short answer is that I don’t stay in shape during the season,” she admitted.

“I go up one to two dress sizes. What you don’t see on camera is that I do have a rack full of clothes that range in sizes, and as I gain weight, I just wear bigger clothes. I’ve learned a thing or two about how to camouflage certain areas and how to draw the eye to a preferable area of the body.”

Sounds like Padma has another talent she needs to share with women everywhere!
