Padma Lakshmi stuns in lacy, lingerie picture she shared with fans

Padma Lakshmi just turned the heat up a notch -- and she wasn't even in the kitchen!

The "Top Chef" host posted a very sexy photo of herself on Friday, where she's perched on top of her makeup counter in nothing but a set of lacy lingerie.

She captioned the snap, "Don't hate me because I'm in lingerie. Moms do that sometimes."

In the photo the 46-year-old television star donned a set of high-waisted black panties and a black lace bra. Her hair was pulled half-up, half down and she added some serious va va voom with burgundy lipstick.

The look appeared to be part of a photo shoot, but that didn't make it any less gorgeous or jaw-dropping.

The stunning host definitely isn't a stranger to sexy styles. Earlier this month she hit a fashion week party in a set of tiny underwear, which she teamed with a sheer, floral dress over top.

Check out her styles below:
