Padma Lakshmi Plays With Texture (PHOTO)

WHO: Actress, model and television host, Padma Lakshmi

WHAT: The Indian "Top Chef" host looked sexy and sleek in an all-black look as she made her way onto the "Wendy Williams Show" last week. Lakshmi's monochromatic look was anything but boring because she layered different textures to create interest in her ensemble. She skillfully paired a black dress with a panelled wool coat and a pair of suede boots. To add even more dimension Salman Rushdie's ex sported a nubby leather carryall and semi-sheer tights -- there doesn't seem to be a fabric she didn't incorporate. A+ Padma!

WHERE: The 5'9" beauty was seen in New York City on November 7th.
