Padma Lakshmi, who posed nude for Page Six Magazine in 2009 when she was pregnant, says she now proudly displays the photos to her daughter.
Padma is proud of her body and the photos she took before her daughter, Krishna Thea Lakshmi, was born last year.
“I think those are beautiful pictures and they hang in our design studio, and my daughter passes those pictures every day,” Padma told FOX411’s Pop Tarts. “I think a woman's body is one of the most beautiful creations on this earth and it's not what you do, it's how you do it."
"Michelangelo did nudes too," she added. "There's a difference between a beautiful photo and an exploited photo, and I don't believe there's anything exploited in the photos that I've taken.”
What do you think?
Should Padma proudly display her nude photos in front of her young daughter?
