Padma Lakshmi's May 2019 Vogue India cover is probably the sexiest thing you'll see all day.

With a sheer stole wrapped around her incredible bod, the model and chef cuts a sensual figure.

She rounded off the look with disheveled hair, bold eyes and nude make up.

Flaunting her natural skin tone, Padma stays true to the the mag's theme '50 Shades of Beige'.

'What’s it like to make a name for yourself in a new country?' writes the mag as they unveil the cover titled 'Strong is Beautiful: Into the World of Padma Lakshmi'.

In an interview with the mag, the 'multi-hyphenate' Padma has spoken about being recognised as a socio-political force.

Photographed by Kristian Schuller, the cover has been styled by Anaita Shroff Adajania.

Strong is beautiful.

'Respect yourself as a woman, be respectful of others, and be respectful of everyone's cultures… including your own,' says Padma.

In the interview Padma reveals: 'I’ve never had trouble maintaining my Indian identity. Because it’s not something that requires maintaining.'

'I was not quite Indian enough in India and too exotic in the US for so long. In a way, I feel the world has finally caught up.'
