Mindy Kaling has always been a style unicorn, on and off screen.
The Mindy Project star has spent the past six seasons incorporating bright colors and mixed patterns into her looks, with the guidance of the show’s costume designer, Salvador Perez. It may be the show’s last hoorah, but that doesn’t mean the style has to stop. Consider this your time to find wardrobe inspiration to last a lifetime.
After six seasons, it’s hard to imagine Mindy’s character without Salvador’s designs. Initially, however, the designer turned the offer down—multiple times.
In an interview with E! News, Mindy shared that it took a lot of convincing to bring Salvador on board. The funny girl had to explain she was looking to “push the edge” for fashion in television. Fast forward to present day, when viewers and fans can probably agree: Her character’s closet has done just that.
In honor of the final season, we’ve complied some of our favorite Mindy Lahiri fashion moments.
If Mindy’s taught you anything, embrace your extra-ness, wear bold prints and be yourself.
