Mindy's stylish toilet trouble
Mindy Kaling thinks layers can be very problematic.
The actress is star of The Mindy Project, a quirky comedy about a gynaecologist and how she balances her work and personal life.
Over the episodes, Mindy feels her character’s style has been evolving – which isn’t always very practical.
“I wear more complicated outfits now,” she revealed to Elle.com.
“Like when I want to go to the bathroom, I feel like I have a vest over two shirts and a pair of shorts over a pair of pants. But our costume designer Salvador Pérez, besides wanting to make me look very glamorous and pretty - which I love - is not afraid of layers and pieces and really putting together looks.”
Mindy, 34, also revealed that her favourite look so far is a polka dot dress she wore in season one.
There’s even a fashion blog that tracks all of the show’s best looks.
“I totally follow them to make sure they get it right,” she laughed.
As well as appearing on The Mindy Project, the star has worked on The Office.
Her job means she meets many exciting A-listers and Mindy has her sights set on becoming best friends with the celebrity voted Best Dressed of 2013.
“Kerry Washington,” she answered when asked about her dream best friend.
“She was so funny on SNL - I kept having to pause it because I liked her too much. I have actually met her once or twice and we tweeted each other... which sounds a little lame.”
