The Mindy Project Premiere Fashion Highlights: Three Things We're Loving from Mindy Lahiri's Closet


If we’re being honest, the best part of Tuesday’s Season 3 premiere of The Mindy Project was Diamond Dan, his hot-pink thong and that striptease. But aside from Mindy’s boyfriend’s secret past and the hot TV couple’s very active love life, we’re also happy to see the return of Dr. L’s amazing wardrobe.

The first look that caught our eye? The black-white-and-yellow geometric print design she teamed with a pair of blingy drop earrings. This look was definitely appropriate for the office, but also brought some signature Mindy flair thanks to the pop of color.

The star had a very “business professional” moment in a aqua pencil skirt, candy-apple red top and tan blazer, as well as a sexier date-night look, wearing a heavily-embellished, curve-hugging black midi dress. (See both looks below!) So it’s safe to say costume designer Salvador Perez has been very busy this season — and we’re in for a very stylish fall.

As for her off-screen looks, Mindy Kaling told PEOPLE she has no regrets. “I never like to look back, and make a designer, who has been generous to me, feel bad about what they lent me or that I didn’t love it. Everything that I wear that is lent to me looks amazing, [but] sometimes I wore the wrong hair and makeup or didn’t sell it the best way that I could.”

Be sure to pick up the new issue of PEOPLE — on stands everywhere Friday — for 27 pages of fashion, including more TV character closets we want to raid. Do you love Mindy’s style? Which look was your favorite on last night’s episode? Sound of below!
