Back in 2009 Padma Lakshmi caused quite a stir when she posed naked (as well as pregnant) for Page Six Magazine. Last year she gave birth to her daughter Krishna Thea Lakshmi and this “Top Chef” host/jewelry designer says she does not have anything to hide. Besides for not having anything to hide she goes on to say that those photos are actually hanging up in the design studio. She says her daughter goes by those pictures every day.
Padma Lakshmi believes that it is not what you do but it is how you do it. She says that yes, there are some nude photos that are exploiting the women but there are also some (like hers) that are beautiful and artistic. She says ““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. Michael Angelo 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.”
Right now there is a bitter custody battle going on between Padma Lakshmi and her daughter’s father Adam Dell, brother of Dell computer founder Michael Dell. Since this is all going on Lakshmi is the perfect target for tabloids. She says that most of what is in them about her is not true and besides for that there is too much personal stuff for her to discuss. What do you think will happen with the custody case?
