Is there any other explanation, possums, for Padma Lakshmi saying, “Looking good and making the most of what you have is what Miami is really all about,” in this outfit?
Sergeant Pepper should be court-martialed, the Sioux warrior put out to pasture, and Kipling’s Raj lieutenant banished to the Hindu Kush. We’re afraid, possums, that Padma has had a relapse. She’s dressing herself again. (“And stealing blue pants from MFMalarkey’s…er…closet,” Miss XaXa pointed out.)
We thought the rehabilitation and di-vest-ment had been successful, but those damned vests are back (check out this week’s Padma vlog on Bravo’s website). Padma, possum, if the '80s and the decade’s signature salmon-mousse canapé are out, then so are the '80s and the decade’s signature vests. Is it time to bring back the Padma Lakshmi Weekly Fashion Review? Did Padma get her vests from the cast of Full House?
As for guest judge Michael Schwartz, to use his own words against him, “What the fuck is that?” For someone who is so focused on what “look[s] great” and on “presentation,” it seems dubious to go around looking like Edward G. Robinson in The Ten Commandments.
