It’s always exciting when she brings a new product to market, and Padma Lakshmi was in the house at the Nespresso Pop-Up Café in New York City today (October 1) for a very special occasion.

The “Top Chef” star hosted the launch of the new Nespresso U Machine, giving coffee lovers yet another method for imbibing massive amounts of caffeine.

Last month, Padma attended the 64th Emmy Awards, making quite an impression in her strapless orange Monique Lhuillier dress.

Of the frock, Lakshmi told press, “I wasn’t sure I’d have the guts to wear it because it’s a lot of dress, but I’m glad I did. I feel pretty in it!”
