Padma Lakshmi

Padma Lakshmi's career began at age 20, when she was discovered by a modeling agent in Spain while sitting in a café As she has stated, “I was the first Indian model to have a career in Paris, Milan and New York. I’m the first one to admit that I was a novelty.” Despite Lakshmi's comment about her being a pioneer as a model of Indian descent, her career follows in the footsteps of Persis Khambatta, a former Miss India, who modeled for Revlon.

On April 17, 2004, in New York City, Lakshmi married the novelist Salman Rushdie, who was sentenced to die by Shah Iran, to whom she was introduced at a party hosted by the journalist and editor Tina Brown. On July 2, 2007, the couple filed for divorce, shortly after Rushdie was granted a knighthood. She is the model for one of the central characters — and love interests — in Rushdie's novel, Fury.
