Whenever Padma Lakshmi makes a move, we take note: and that applies to both major career and fashion moments. The 2023 SI Swimsuit star and best-selling author shared an adorable pic alongside her daughter, Krishna, on Instagram on Nov. 1. Not only did the two give Lorelai and Rory Gilmore a run for their money as the sweetest mother-daughter duo, they also shared a major twinning moment with their footwear.

Lakshmi and her mini-me both wore a pair of silver pointed-toe Steve Madden boots, which we think are the perfect closet staple for the upcoming holiday season. While the 53-year-old Taste the Nation creator wore the flashy footwear with a simple top and black mini skirt, her daughter opted for a little black dress.

The boots, which are also available in gold, make for the ideal statement shoe this holiday season. The four-inch heel offers a bit of extra height, and they’d pair perfectly with a skirt, dress or trouser, so you can incorporate them into your outfit for any and every seasonal obligation you have on your calendar over the coming weeks.

We’re not the only ones obsessed with the look, as a few of Lakshmi’s 1.4 million followers chimed in to the comments with similar sentiments.

“Cut to everyone buying the boots,” one person predicted.

“I need a pair of these boots for a meeting I have on Friday @stevemadden. I gotta let these people know who they dealin with,” someone else quipped.
