20 Reasons Mindy Kaling Is Our Favorite Unofficial "Fashion Girl"

Sep 16 2014 - 9:40am

She's not just the best-dressed doctor on TV, in real life, Mindy Kaling is a die-hard fashion fan, and there's no place you'll catch more of the action than her Instagram account [1]. While her busy career has left Mindy little time to keep up with her fashion blog [2] (yes, she totally had a blog!), this is the next best thing.

On the feed, the actress gamely experiments with trends, unabashedly welcomes brights and prints into her closet, and documents her love affair with clothes, bags, and shoes. With each post, The Mindy Project [3] star charms us as much with her sense of humor as she does her sense of style. And as we learn more about her fashion philosophy, we're feeling pretty inspired. And, since The Mindy Project returns tonight, there's no better time to scroll through and experience the Mindy Kaling effect on your own feed.
