Padma Lakshmi Silences Haters With Sultry Lingerie Photo

The ‘Top Chef’ host has never looked hotter.

Padma Lakshmi supposedly eats a whopping 8,000 calories a day when she’s filming Top Chef. But the 47-year-old mom sure knows how to slim down off camera—just take a look at this sultry Instagram snap she posted on Thursday.

In the sizzling selfie, Lakshmi poses next to a bathroom sink – wearing nothing but a black lacy La Perla bra and high-waisted panties.

“Don’t hate because I’m in lingerie,” she captioned the pic. “Moms do that sometimes.” 

This is hardly the first time Lakshmi has heated up Instagram:

Keep up the good work, Padma!
