Top Chef host, model, jewelry designer and author Padma Lakshmi and her daughter Krishna are quite a beautiful vision. The two were spotted in New York City having a little lunch and doing some shopping at their local Whole Foods.
One thing that struck us? Not only is mom Padma still pulling out the gorgeous but that she apparently passed on her good looks to her daughter. And that’s not all she passed on, she also is having Krishna embrace her Indian heritage. Krishna wore a beautiful vibrant silk traditional Indian outfit. Both mother and daughter also wore bindis on their foreheads.
If you were wondering, a bindi is a small dot that is worn by (generally) by Indian women (and Gwen Stefani back in the day). Our pal Wikipedia says about the placement of the bindi: “The area between the eyebrows (where the bindi is placed) is said to be the sixth chakra, ajna, the seat of “concealed wisdom”. According to followers of Hinduism, this chakra is the exit point for kundalini energy. The bindi is said to retain energy and strengthen concentration. It is also said to protect against demons or bad luck.”
