Celebrity chef and model Padma Lakshmi, who is six-months pregnant, bared it all for New York magazine called Page Six.
On the cover of the magazine, the Top Chef hostess hugs her knees while looking at the camera over her right shoulder, reports celebrity gossip site Aceshowbiz.com.
In a photo spread inside the magazine, Padma copies a pose made famous by the Hannah Montana star, Miley Cyrus, for Vanity Fair.
Incidentally, the picture has been available as part of the wallpaper of her twitter page for a long time now.
“I like me better naked. I don’t mean that in a vain way ... When you put clothes on, you immediately put a character on. Clothes are adjectives, they are indicators. When you don’t have any clothes on, it’s just you, raw, and you can’t hide,” the 39-year-old Lakshmi says in the magazine.
"You hope that with age, what you pay for in gravity, you gain in gravitas," she's quoted as saying, by People. "I'm sure my thighs looked better when I was 25, but I think my mind is better today."
The star, who once was married to author Salman Rushdie, says that she is still re-assembling her life after their split in 2007.
“I [have been] reconstructing my life and putting it back together in a way that looked more appropriate to who I was. At this point in my career, I’m still growing. Jewels, spices and teas — I sound like Magellan,” she says.
