Really, really ridiculously good-looking model/hostess/designer Padma Lakshmi descended from heaven today to drop by Bergdorf Goodman with some jewelry. Her eponymous line, Padma, features delicate, bejeweled gold earrings, rings and bracelets that range in price from around $300 to $6,000. Custom orders seem to be available, because there was a man there asking about getting some of the items made up with different gems, and Padma seemed more than happy to go along with it.
She is, by the way, super pregnant and even more ridiculously good-looking in person than she is on the TV, which we did not think was possible. In New York, her jewelry line is exclusive to Bergdorf, but it can be found elsewhere at Neiman Marcus or online.
