Lauren asks: Where can I find the dress Mindy Kaling is wearing in this picture? I love it!
Kaling rocked this curve-friendly mini when she painted the town red in this week’s episode of The Mindy Project, appropriately titled “In the Club.” After convincing her co-workers to join her, Mindy takes on the night in an attention-demanding body con dress.
“We wanted a bold, colorful look for the club scene, Mindy loved it because it was effortless, young and chic,” says costume designer Salvador Perez. “We had seen the dress, so when they wrote the club scene, we immediately [went out and] picked it up.” Considering the way Mindy’s night turned out — hello VIP section upgrade and a potential new love interest! — it was worth every penny. But how many pennies is that, exactly?
Mindy’s Hervé Léger “Carmela” bandage dress rings up for $1,500, and the heels and clutch that complete her look are from Jimmy Choo. So even though her character is a doctor, we’ve got to assume she still had to save up to buy the head-to-toe designer ensemble.
