The Indian beauty showed off her new accessories on Wednesday night (25Mar15), when she posted a photo with the caption, "#accidentprone".

Lakshmi's representative has since revealed the host of U.S. cooking competition Top Chef suffered a knock to her elbow during a boxing session, and is using the arm brace to stabilise her forearm.

As for the knee injury, the 44 year old admits it was the result of a "simple and silly fall", telling, "I have bruised the tendon on the inside of my left knee. Both (injuries) should heal by the time I go to Top Chef."

Production on season 13 of Top Chef is due to begin later this spring (15).

Lakshmi is getting used to dealing with injuries at home - her five-year-old daughter Krishna broke her arm in January (15).
