Padma, Lady Rushdie, made an appearance last night at ABC Carpet and Home in New York at a party for the release of Mothers, an album of what New York Magazine says are "remixed African songs," the proceeds from which are supposed to go to "malnourished children in Africa." New York says the party was supposed to feature Deepak Chopra, who was a no-show, and describes Padma as "low-key." Padma herself told Paper Magazine that "she has not been out partying since her recent divorce from Salman Rushdie, but had to show support for...this worthy cause."
We say, shine on, Padma.
N.B. The woman in the middle with the, uh, costume tits is Patricia Field, costume designer for Sex and the City and The Devil Wears Prada and power lesbian. The woman on the left is DJ Donna D'Cruz, head of the company putting out the record, and who "hail[s] from the same corner of India" as Padma.
