Mindy Kaling on Jimmy Fallon

Posted on May 17, 2013

We sympathize with the lady stars on talk shows. You have to find a dress that looks just as good sitting down as it does when standing. Normally, the gals err on the side of a dress that looks good standing and wind up sitting through an interview with their hand clamped to their thigh to prevent skirt slippage and their stomachs held in because the dress is so tight.

Mindy seems to have gone in the other direction.

‘The Office’ star Mindy Kaling makes an appearance on the ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ show.

This dress looks really cute sitting down and considerably less so when she’s walking out. In fact, it’s a funny thing; we’d normally say a dress as somewhat shapeless as this practically requires a belt. But most ladystars would rather die than wear a belt that cuts them in half the second they sit down.  In the end, we think she made a pretty smart choice. She knew she’d spend 90% of this appearance seated, so she went for the “sitting down” dress. The color and print look fantastic on her. We’re gonna give this one a thumbs up, despite the quibbles.

We cannot, however, sign off on those horrid shoes.
