London, July 12 : Indian/American cookbook author Padma Lakshmi, who's been missing from the party scene for quite sometime, was spotted attending one do this week.
Lakshmi, who had found fame with US cookery show Top Chef, was seen at the posh Quintessentially Summer Arts party in London.
"We don't get to see much of Padma in London these days," Daily Express quoted a partygoer.
The 37-year-old, who filed for divorce from author Salman Rushdie last summer, was further praised for her looks.
"She looked absolutely stunning as usual but some partygoers worried about red faces as she realised that Zafar Rushdie, her former stepson [Salman's son with his first wife, the late Clarissa Luard], was also at the bash," he said.
"The pair managed to spend most of the evening in different parts of the room," he added.
