    The Salty Wit and Wisdom of Padma LakshmiThe latest issue of Vanity Fair features a profile of none other than Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi, who’s promoting her new cookbook, Tangy Tart Hot & Sweet. Amid all the foodie talk, Padma actually reveals quite a lot about herself. A sampling: • On the Top Chef Emmy nomination: “[It] was a big fucking deal.” • On life without her ex-husband, Salman Rushdie: “I’m really fucking sad.” • On her new cookbook: “Finishing the fucking book was like being in labor for two years!” • On hosting dinner party: “I pulled this out of my ass.” • On an AIDS charity she supports: “…we’re doing a campaign and an event and you should buy a fucking table.” • On telling the press if she had a boyfriend: “My husband would call fucking Reuters.” • On a tabloid’s coverage of her bra size: “…they said it was 36C. I said, 34C, motherfucker!” • On her current living situation: “Now I’m staying in a fucking hotel with all my shit in storage.” Damn, Padma. A Taste of Fame [VF]

    Model Catherine McNeil Finds Comfort in Chicken Burgers Earlier this year Times fashion writer Guy Trebay declared 17-year-old Catherine McNeil to be “fashion’s latest crush,” citing her photo shoots for Mario Testino, her campaigns for Hugo Boss and Dolce & Gabbana, and her sudden status as the sought-after runway model. McNeil has lived on the Lower East Side since moving from Australia in February and can often be found at expat hangout Ruby’s wolfing chicken burgers like her mom used to make. “It’s chicken breast, and you can put lettuce and sweet chili sauce and stuff on it,” she explains. Not that she did much eating out this week between shoots for Another magazine and Versace. We caught her on the way to the airport (she was flying to Paris for a Gaultier shoot) and asked her what she noshed on.
