We're so used to seeing Ms. Padma as the host of TV's "Top Chef", it may slip our minds that she was first, and foremost, a model. Well, her appearance at the Ball jolted the memory of Padma's modeling days. Holy insanely tight abs!
Now as for her look, overall, it's not working. I'm digging the so-now crop tops with the longish sleeves. However, my personal preference is for the crop top to be paired with bottoms with a higher rise such that only a sliver of skin is exposed. Clearly, Padma subscribes to the "go big or go home" approach. She paired her crop top with a maxi skirt (also by Payal Singhal) slung ultra-low on her hips. This resulted in a maximum swath of super-fit-abs exposed. I get that she must be proud of her fit body. She's had a baby, so we know she's put in effort. However, this look is just way too overexposed IMHO.
