Padma Lakshmi
may love food, but she's totally in shape!

The "Top Chef" host showed off her fit figure on the red carpet for Booklyn's Museum's 4th Annual Artist Ball on Wednesday in New York.

The brunette beauty stunned in a gorgeous quarter-sleeved black crop top, a beaded vest and a long black maxi skirt. 

Padma finished her look with minimal makeup and a matching beaded clutch for her red carpet appearance.

The 43-year-old follows a strict diet and tries to stay away from sweets, fried food, wheats and alcohol and she also hits the gym at least three days a week to maintain her rock hard body. 

"To maintain my weight I strength-train, use the treadmill and elliptical, and box three times a week. I also do planks at home and jump rope. I carry a jump rope with me everywhere, especially when I'm working. It's a great way to squeeze in a quick workout and get your heart rate up when you don't have time to go to the gym," she told Fitness Magazine about her routine.
