Posted Thursday November 8, 2012 1:45 PM GMT

Stepping out in style in the Big Apple, Padma Lakshmi arrived at the "Wendy Williams Show" on Wednesday (November 7).

The "Top Chef" host donned all black in a mini dress, long overcoat, nylons, and knee-high boots as she smiled at awaiting photographers and fans.

Joining Wendy to promote the new season of the hit Bravo series, the 42-year-old model and cookbook author posted to Twitter on Wednesday, "TOP CHEF Season 10 premieres tonight! Are you ready to watch the competition tackle Seattle?"

A big supporter of the president, she recently expressed her excitement at the election results by tweeting, "Oh Happy day!! Obama Obama Obama all the way!!! And thank you to all those in Fla. who came to our rally and voted early!!!"
