Padma Lakshmi is slithering into our mental folder of swimwear inspiration. The 47-year-old Top Chef host recently wore a snake-print string bikini while filming the culinary competition show in Kentucky. Though the sweltering shot was originally taken back in June, Padma fittingly shared it on July 5 in honor of — what else? — National Bikini Day.

While retro polka dots, belted one-pieces, and fruit prints seem to be dominating this year's swimwear trends, it's cool to see a celebrity switch it up with something different and sexy as hell. If you're ready to chuck your cherry-print swimsuit for a snake-print bikini, shop some of our favorites ahead.
