Mindy Kaling Goes Full Bombshell at the Emmys

Mindy Kaling's fashion game has been on point lately, and her dress to this year's Emmy Awards is no exception. Maybe it's the influence of Sal Perez' crazy-awesome costuming on The Mindy Project , maybe it's a by-product into coming into her own as a successful showrunner/star, or maybe it's a mixture of both. Either way, she's been killing it lately — from her weeks of (sadly unfruitful) Emmy-promoting to her awesome selfie with Zooey Deschanel and Lupita Nyong'o at the White House Correspondents dinner, there's no denying the lady has serious style. It may be piñata-like in terms of its colorfulness, but it's awesome nonetheless.

Tonight's Emmy Awards gown was fittingly spectacular: She went on theme in red carpet red — and with her ever-awesome (and, by her own admission, extension-ed) hair pulled back in a lovely half-updo, her high-impact eye game as on point as ever, her nails looking fashion-forward in white, and a blingy-yet-classic clutch at her side, Kaling officially went full-bombshell in quite the Kenzo showstopper.

Yes, her beauty and accessorizing was quite incredible, and her showstopper of a dress might have been even better: with a simple-yet-lovely knotted halter neckline, and silvery racing stripes adorning the bodice, waist and full-length column skirt, this year's Emmy ensemble was quite the win, lack of nominations be damned.
