Style Inspiration: Mindy Lahiri on The Mindy Project
If you are a twentysomething girl who is not yet obsessed with Mindy Kaling’s television show ‘The Mindy Project’ you have seriously been missing out. ‘The Mindy Project’ is comedy writer Mindy Kaling’s first solo gig as writer, director, and star, and the show is seriously hilarious. Not only will you be laughing for a half an hour straight, you will be marveling at the Kate Spade/Jonathan Adler lifestyle that is Mindy’s character.
Mindy’s character is a successful obgyn, and luckily the show takes that opportunity to dress her in very upscale flirty, feminine looks. Mindy is all about sequins and bows, the absolute epitome of ‘Girlie’, and leaves me lusting for a shopping spree after every episode.
The show also likes to poke fun about the difference between what styles men and women find attractive when in the premiere episode Mindy comes out of her office to show her coworkers her date outfit, which I of course loved, when a male doctor tells her that she looks like she is going to party with Elton John. The following dress is akin to what her coworker Danny would rather see her wear:
It is also refreshing to see a female on television, not unlike Lena Dunham, who has actual healthy proportions. Finally I can see a look on a television actress I admire and know that I don’t need to be a size two to accomplish that same style. She is pretty much my spirit animal.
Also, on one last unrelated note, I really loved her Met Ball outfit, and I think her and B.J. Novak should get married. The end.
