Season 19 of the culinary cooking TV competition Top Chef takes place in Houston, Texas. On the episode “We’re on a Boat,’ after the remaining chefs complete their challenge on the water (catching their own fish!), they face host Padma Lakshmi, head judge Tom Colicchio and guest judge Stephanie Izard.
Padma looks as stylish as ever in a plunging black dress and dark bangs.
It’s the first time we’ve seen Padma wearing her long layered hair with bangs.
Top Chef airs Thursdays at 8 pm on Bravo.
