Despite our predilection to #boycottVogue after the Kimye incident, we found ourselves sneaking a peak at the same April issue for a glimpse of our favourite comedian/TV writer, Mindy Kaling.
Vogue shot a fun, one-page editorial with the actress, and included a short interview that focuses on Mindy’s love of fashion, prints and colour, as well as her body shape.
Our take on the interview:
1. It’s so cool to see Mindy Kaling in Vogue because she has an amazing sense of style and the best wardrobe (check out her Instagram feed if you don’t believe us).
2. It was weird that they focused so much on her shape, calling her a “curvaceous comedienne” (we prefer adjectives like “fabulous,” “brilliant,” or “consummate”). Maybe it’s normal to mention an actress’ dress size, her desire not to be skinny, and what she wears when she’s at her thinnest and biggest, but we care much more about what’s happening with Mindy Lahiri on The Mindy Project (it returns to Fox on April 1), and her response to criticism that her show isn’t diverse enough (to which she said: “I look at shows on TV, and this is going to just seem defensive, but I’m just gonna say it: I’m a [bleeping] Indian woman who has her own [bleeping] network television show, OK?”).
3. She looks AMAZING in the editorial. Dries Van Noten blouse and skirt with Oscar de la Renta pumps. The lighting is a bit off and makes her face look a bit severe, but who cares? She’s Mindy!
4. She’s really funny in a self-deprecating, “I’m amazing” kind of way. “I love when your clothes can help you project that you’re witty—you know, when your outfit does some of the work for you.”
