Padma Lakshmi is used to getting served hot dishes as the longtime host of "Top Chef," but now she's the one giving everyone a taste with a special never-before-seen photo.

The 49-year-old star shared a behind-the-scenes photo from last month when she was getting ready for the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards.

Aside from the shapewear and diamonds, Lakshmi is only covering herself up using a well-placed handbra.

"Feeling emotionally, physically & spiritually secure," the star captioned the risqué shot.

Others applauded the star for her beauty and bravery, while one fan joked, "I was going to wear that same outfit to the Emmys, but I have to admit, it looks much better on you. I wasn't sure how I'd be able to hold my drink either."

Even though Lakshmi is in phenomenal shape, she doesn't let it be the main focus of her day and spoke about body positivity when she walked the Emmy red carpet.

"I was just happy there was a dress this pretty that fit,” she told US Weekly. “And at the end of the day, it’s just about feeling comfortable. I am done trying to squeeze my bum into something that is too small. I don’t care ... it shouldn’t be about what I look like at this point in my career."
