Daily News: Beautiful women and beefy burgers ... a dangerous combination, you say?

"Top Chef" host and former model Padma Lakshmi is going the Paris Hilton route by teaming up to promote Carl's Jr. in a steamy commercial.

The culinary cutie chows down on a Carl's Jr. Western Bacon Cheeseburger in the ad, reveling in every bacon-laden bite.

But the sultry star isn't just indulging for the camera. In her own cookbook "Tangy, Tart, Hot and Sweet," she credits the grab and go burger joint for awakening her from her vegetarian slumber as a teenager.

"The sublimely pleasurable taste of bacon ... was further enhanced by its mingling with the barbeque sauce, greedily licked off as it dripped down my teenage fingers," she wrote.

The burger-loving beauty proves that the old Carl's Jr. standby is still finger-licking good.
