The Mindy Project:
Interview! Soaps.com sat in on a conference call with the FOX series star Mindy Kaling. When asked how much say she has in her wardrobe the actress stated, "I am very involved with the look of the show and I’m lucky because I have a very collaborative designer, Al Perez, who is awesome. He pays such attention to fit and tailoring. I don’t think I’ve had a single item of clothing, whether it’s from a store in the mall or it’s like Gucci that has not been tailored within an inch of my life, he’s so in to making it fit me exactly, which I love."
In regards to how Kaling's taste compares to her characters' she went on to say, "I think she’s a little bit more colorful, preppy and girlie than I am, although I love girlie stuff now and again. Whereas the character might wear much more like layered prints over other prints and be a little bit offbeat, me, personally, Mindy Kaling, I used to live in pretty much like Helmut and Club Monaco and flat stuff, what I wear every day. So my wardrobe is a little bit more subdued. Although me, personally, I wear a lot more like hardware. I love more like rock and roll, I guess, costume jewelry and accessories. And leather, I wear more leather jackets and things than my character does."
