Food and fashion: Were there ever two items better suited for one another? Debatable, but in our sister site Eater's supercut of every Top Chef elimination of all time they noticed something interesting about Padma Lakshmi, the show's host (or the "very fashionable Grim Reaper" in Eater's words): "Padma does not appear to ever repeat an outfit. In last week's recap, Max Silvestri noted: 'But if on average she wears two outfits an episode, for 13 episodes a season, and now this is her 9th season, has she run out of normal clothes?' She has not." The more you know. [Eater]
