We're obsessed with Padma Lakshmi's gorgeous look on the red carpet tonight--and there's a story behind it. When discussing options with her makeup artist, Kathy Jeung, Lakshmi referenced the German model, Veruschka in the '70s. "So with that as our inspiration, we created a modern version: soft blended bronzing with a pop of pastel color on the eyes and a neutral full lip was another nod to that look of that era," Jeung told us. After prepping her skin with Koh Gen Do Cleansing Water ($39 at and La Mer Soft Cream ($285 at, Jeung applied her foundation with a Stilazzi brush ($25 at and the Beauty Blender ($19.95 at first saturated with water, excess squeezed out to leave sponge moist (makeup artist tip!). The shimmery eye is from Christian Dior 5 Couleurs in Stylish Move ($60 at and the retro lip is a combination of Giorgio Armani 203 ($34 at topped off with Guerlain gloss in 45 ($34 at
