Mindy Kaling in Topshop at the 2014 PaleyFest “The Mindy Project” Event

Posted on March 26, 2014

Miss Mindy gives T Lo another reminder that they should never choose the topics for the day based on thumbnails of pictures. There’s always some little detail you see when you get to the full-sized shot that you just KNOW is going to be your downfall.

Can you guess what it is?

We’ve always said you can do a cropped top on the red carpet, but it depends on the top, the person wearing it, and the event they’re attending (which is usually what all style questions come down to: garment, person, venue). This is a place where an outfit like this is perfectly welcome. And Mindy could work a crop top, we’re sure. It’s just that we question whether this is the one and wonder what this look is really doing for her. The skirt’s waist is a little high and the sleeves look flat-out too small on her. If everything was proportional and fit a little better we think she could work this, but the more we look at it, the more that top just looks too damn small on her.

Beautiful fabric, though. Love the earrings. Wish she’d get her hair off her shoulders. And we suspect her makeup looks great in person, but it almost never looks right for pictures. Too heavy and too shiny.
