Featured on the publication's cover, the Top Chef presenter strikes a pose bending both of her knees to cover the front part of her body while offering sharp look to the lens through her right shoulder.
In a photo featured inside the magazine, Padma is seen impersonating Miley Cyrus' notorious pose for Vanity Fair.
Padma recently declared her love for the naked form, saying, "I like me better naked."
The pregnant host, who refuses to reveal the father, insists upon the purity of the natural form. "I don't mean that in a vain way. When you put clothes on, you immediately put a character on,” the New York Post quoted her as saying.
"Clothes are adjectives, they are indicators. When you don't have any clothes on, it's just you, raw, and you can't hide," she added.
Padma also discusses her pregnancy weight, divorce to husband Salman Rushdie and some other personal issues in the magazine. The particular edition will go on sale on December 3.
Padma Lakshmi was married to Salman Rushdie, who is an award-winning author, from April 2004 to July 2007. In October this year, Padma had her representative publicly announcing that she is pregnant. Not much information is shared about her pregnancy though, leaving her due date and the identity of the baby's father in question.
