Padma Lakshmi biography (bio):
Padma Parvati Lakshmi, Lady Rushdie is an Indian-American cookbook author, actress, and model who has described herself as the first well-known model from India. She has been the host of the reality television program Top Chef since season two and is an ambassador for the United Nations Development Fund for Women.
She was born into a Tamil Brahmin family in 1970 and raised in Madras, India and the United States. Her first name means "lotus" in Sanskrit, as well as "pearl" or "jewel." Parvati is a consort of Shiva. Lakshmi is the name of the Hindu goddess of wealth.
Her parents' only child, Lakshmi is the daughter of an executive with Pfizer and his first wife, Vijaya, a nurse who presently specializes in suicide prevention. The senior Lakshmis separated when their daughter was one and divorced a year later. Both parents later remarried; her mother's third and present husband is a plumber. She reportedly had no further contact with her father until 1998.
When she was 14 years old, she was involved in a serious automobile accident, causing an injury of her right arm, which required surgery leaving a 7 inch scar, between her elbow and shoulder.
By a later marriage of her father's, Lakshmi has a half-brother and a half-sister, who was an actress and classical dancer but is now pursuing a career with special-needs children. As Lakshmi said in an interview published in The Guardian, "My father had quit his job as an executive at Pfizer to manage her career. That was kind of like rubbing salt in the wound. I didn't understand why he wanted that relationship with her, and not with me."
Reportedly, she spent part of her childhood attending elementary school in Chennai, India. Lakshmi is a 1992 graduate of Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, where she received a B.A. with honors in Theater Arts.
Lakshmi was brought up as a vegetarian and has admitted that because of this, she sometimes becomes "squeamish" when sampling other cultural delicacies.

Marriage:
On April 17, 2004, in New York City, Lakshmi married the novelist Salman Rushdie, to whom she was introduced at a party hosted by the journalist and editor Tina Brown. By him, she has two stepsons, Zafar and Milan. On July 2, 2007 the couple filed for divorce, shortly after Rushdie was granted a knighthood.
When questioned about Rushdie's age (he is seven years younger than her father) and her long estrangement from her father (whom she has described as "the most sexy, manic, in-shape, lean, tall, handsome man I have ever met") Lakshmi has said that there may be a correlation: "I think that we are attracted to what we feel we need."
Career

Modeling:
Lakshmi's career began at age 20, when she was discovered by a high-profile modeling agent in Spain while sitting in a cafe. As she has stated, "I was the first Indian model to have a career in Paris, Milan and New York. Im the first one to admit that I was a novelty."

She has modeled for top designers such as Emanuel Ungaro, Ralph Lauren, and Alberta Ferretti and done ad campaigns for Roberto Cavalli and Versus. She was a favorite model of the photographer Helmut Newton, whose photographs of her often highlighted the large scar on her right arm.
She has appeared on the magazine covers of Cosmopolitan - January 2002, Vogue - May 2004, L'Officiel India - October 2004, You December 19, 2004, Shoo - Spring 2005, Harper's Bazaar - October 2005, Newsweek - March 6, 2006, Asian Woman May/June 2006, Avenue - July/August 2006, and Industry - February/March 2007.
