Mindy Kaling is definately (as Wendy Williams would say), a friend in my head. She's a girl's girl, with a funny as heck TV show, The Mindy Project, and the ability to make any and every print charming and sassy. To celebrate Kaling's birthday, we've gathered some of our favorite printed looks from her red carpet appearances.

Kaling has perfectly mastered dressing her curves, while not being afraid to try some of the most eye-catching patterns. From florals to abstract prints, she has it all down to a science.
Here are a few cues from Kaling to remember. Emphasize your waist. If the motif is very busy, try adding a belt to keep the look from being overpowering. It nips in the waist and creates and hourglass shape. Not a fan of belts? Try going for a dress that has a drawstring, waistband, or a solid mid-section, to create a flattering silhouette. Be sure to keep your outfit as the primary focus, all accessories should be kept minimal, preferably in solid colors. Invest in a nude strap sandal that goes with anything, like these from Steve Madden.
