Padma accessorized her off the shoulder dress with silver bangles and a yellow Ostrich Hermes bag, while Krishna wore a coral sweater to keep her warm, an aquamarine necklace and gold ballet slippers.
The Top Chef host, who speaks English, Tamil, Hindi, Italian and Spanish, has revealed to iVillage.co.uk that she is especially proud of her little girl Krishna’s sophisticated tongue.
“My daughter is bilingual, so she can count to ten in a few languages, which is always charming when your relatives come over. They are very happy about that. She speaks my native language, which is Tamil. It’s a South Indian language. She’s running and dancing and talking.”
“She has her own personality. She’s this fully-formed, tiny, opinionated girl,” Lakshmi added.
