Padma Lakshmi & Chrissy Teigen honored by Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood presented its Champion of Change Award to Padma Lakshmi at its annual gala in New York Monday night, reported Hollywood Life.

The Taste The Nation and Top Chef host jetted across the country from the Academy Awards in Los Angeles where she attended the Vanity Fair afterparty to take part in the New York event.

Model and social media star Chrissy Teigen gave what was described as a moving speech at the event after receiving the Catalyst for Change award.

Planned Parenthood’s Spring into Action gala focuses attention on sexual health and reproductive rights.

“Planned Parenthood was there for me and my mom. It was there when I needed birth control, and it has been there for countless friends and family members since then,” Padma Lakshmi shared with her followers on Instagram, according to Just Jared. “We must #AllRise for justice and protect the people’s seat, our right for reproductive freedom, and our right to birth control.”

She wore a stunning red dress with bold red lips to match, along with droplet earrings and open-toed shoes.

Teigen came in a bright yellow dress and gold heeled earrings and high-heeled shoes.

“Honored to be given the catalyst for change award last night from @plannedparenthood. We will continue to fight for you just as hard as you fight for us and our bodies. and congrats to one of the world’s greatest women,” she said on Instagram.
