So if that commercial for the Western Bacon Thickburger didn’t convince you, this advertisement surely will: Padma Lakshmi is really,really sexy.

The ad will be featured in magazines this fall and will also be seen on her website, PadmaLakshmi.com. The jewels are sold online at Bergdorf Goodman stores nationwide.

Although she’s best known for playing host for the chef competition on Bravo, Lakshmi has dabbled in acting before. She’s had a role in “The Ten Commandments,” an ABC miniseries, as well as appearances in the full-length features “The Mistress of Spices,” “Boom” and “Glitter.” Oh, and who can forget her amazing performance in a Carl’s Jr ad?
