I didn't know how small or how much shorter he [Prince] was than me when I first was talking to him like this. That was a shock. He was 5'2". And barefoot, I'm 5'9".
She measured my height. I knew very well how tall I was. I had reached five-foot-nine at age 13. I'd often taken flak for my height. My old elementary school nickname "Black Giraffe" echoed in my head. My height and long neck earned the noun. The adjective speaks, rather sadly, for itself.
Later, I was called "Skeletor," after He-Man's nemesis, whom I suppose I resembled because I was naturally gaunt. By the time I was old enough to be shy around boys, I had been ridiculed for my gangliness long enough that I developed a hunch to conceal my true height.

Padma seems quite tall but after seeing her next to Charlize Theron on Top Chef I think she could be as low as 5'7.5". At least 2" shorter than her by my calculations. 5'8" is as high as I'd go since Charlize always says her posture is poor.

Hate? I don't even think she's unattractive!! Quite the opposite overall. But I agree with Crash's comments! Not that it matters on here, she looks 5 ft 9.

He didn't say she was ugly, just not conventionally beautiful. She's attractive in her own way.

Indian from India. LOL that sounds funny reading that loud.

Nice figure yes but her face is definitely not conventionally beautiful. I think she's a good example of a "handsome" woman.

i think she's strikingly beautiful! i guess beauty's really in the eye of the beholder as i tend to gravitate towards the tall glamazons.

Arch Stnaton seems to hate Padma Lakshmi! I think she's so beautiful. Her kid is cute. Just saw the pics of them on the Hawaii beach!

when I was looking at her picture the thumbnail for the actress Andee Frizzell was showing on the side. Is it just me or do they look similar Rob?
Editor Rob
strong features maybe a little similar

Nona no offense but you sound a little bit jealous...She has always had angular features-that's why she was able to become a model. I think she still looks as beatiful as ever.

From India or U.S. native american?

She was quite feminine during her younger days. Many women post 40 who work out tend to get masculine. Nice muscle tone on her broad shoulders though

She looks a lot like John Abraham the Indian actor facially actually!
Arch Stnaton said on 11/Apr/13
Oh, I think she's hot, very attractive, but facially I dunno, her eyes are quite wide apart and she has quite a masculine jaw. I don't think I'd describe her as pretty as such, perhaps I mean not "dainty" I dunno, but I'd agree that she is a strikingly attractive woman.
Editor Rob
I know what you mean, her features are strong.

Salman Rushdie's wife right? Great body! But I don't think one could call her "pretty", looks a bit masculine and animalistic to me but definitely an attractive woman nonetheless. Facially she reminds me a little of Great Khali!
Editor Rob
ex-wife, I'm sure a lot of guys wouldn't mind being with her, I'd call her pretty ;)
