A big step! Mindy Kaling tried something new in the fashion department.

Kaling explained that she usually avoided the shade because she was “always so worried about it not being flattering and also about spilling food on it.” She continued: “Last night [my stylist] @mollyddickson took me out of my comfort zone with this stunning satin blazer and strapless mini from @magdabutrym. I loved it!”

For the 2008 Emmys, Kaling stepped out in a brown pleated dress that Cohen described as “very Studio 54,” prompting a horrified reaction from Morning show actress. “Hibachi! I really hate myself,” she joked before asking Cohen to “find a look of me where I look good.”
