Mindy Kaling showed off a serious style shake-up at Fox's TCA All-Star Party. The actress, writer and all-around funny girl debuted a stunning new hair look, with her naturally raven locks dyed into a gorgeous ombré style with subtle golden and caramel highlights.

Posting a snap to Instagram prior to the event, she introduced the new ’do joking: “I’m blonde now guys, deal with it. @clarisshair & @kateydenno getting me ready for my new life as a R&B singer.”

It's clear she didn't rush into the hair overhaul: while on the red carpet at the event, she told E! News, "It's just something I've wanted to do the past couple of months. And then I was like, why not? I don't know, I kind of just wanted to do it!"

And she also revealed she was inspired to ditch the dark side by a fellow hair chameleon: "Rihanna has been rocking blonde hair on and off for a long time. I really like how it looks on her. I sort of felt like blonde hair should just not be for Caucasian women."

She complemented her new hairstyle with an equally dramatic fashion shake-up. The Mindy Project star had ditched her usual form-fitting dresses in favor of some quirky tailoring—a gold Smythe blazer, stripy shirt, skinny cigarette trousers, and chic pointed pumps with sparkly toe caps. Keep it up, Mindy—we're loving your new look.
