Padma Lakshmi, 48, rocks bikini and cowboy hat at SXSW

Padma Lakshmi flaunted her curves in a cowboy hat and little else.

The "Top Chef" hostess rocked a black bikini and hid her face under a 10-gallon while in Austin, Texas, for the SXSW Festival.

Lakshmi, 48, lied down on a lounge chair in an Instagram snap, captioning the photo, "Big yee haw energy at #sxsw #austin."


In February, she posted a snap with daughter Krishna at the beach, as well as another sweet photo jumping into a pool with her 9-year-old little girl, who she shares with her ex, Adam Dell.

Lakshmi admitted previously that she gains 15 pounds while filming "Top Chef" for Bravo every season, but you'd never know it from looking at her.

The stunner works hard at the gym, as she documented in another Instagram video on a speedbag and lifting a medicine ball at the gym and yet another doing Pilates, but she still knows how to indulge — like when she celebrated National Pizza Day in a bathtub.
