Padma Lakshmi's Self-Absorbed Computer Screen Saver

Padma Lakshmi's Self-Absorbed Computer Screen Saver

Have you all been over to Apartment Therapy yet to see the sneak peek that Harper's Bazaar provided into Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi's home? It's worth a gander to see a beautiful woman showing off her beautiful home. But, like many AT-ers posted in the comments of that post, something about her choices of artwork (especially her desktop screensaver, in this case) that seem a bit off...

Padma's screensaver, in a similar fashion to the Francesco Clemente-made painting over her bed, is an image of her. Yep boys, Padma uses a sexy shot of herself as a screen saver just like you. I guess it's meant to be.

A bunch of you in the comments posted about how strange and self-absorbed you thought it was.

When we asked about matching your desktop to your decor, we mentioned the possibility of having pictures of friends and family displayed as your screen art. We know a lot of our friends do it. But besides maybe a wedding photo, they're not really self-centric.

Tell us: do you (or would you) have photos of yourself displayed as your computer desktop? Is it for a self-esteem boost? Or do you just like looking at yourself?
