Mindy Kaling - Lead

By now we know that designer Salvador Perez is the talented man behind both Mindy Kaling's red carpet looks and the costumes we love to view on The Mindy Project. But despite how prepared the actress and fashion-lover may be, wardrobe malfunctions are sometimes unavoidable. Yesterday, the funny lady took to Instagram to give fans the scoop behind her last-minute dress touch-up on the set of her hit show. “When you split the seam of your dress doing some physical comedy because you have a big butt and you need to be sewn up,” she comically captioned the photo below. In the shot, Kaling is laughing as her A+ style team rapidly works to piece her purple dress back together. Sure, she may jokingly refer to her derrière as big, but the brunette beauty is nothing but svelte in this lace-detailed number with matching shoes.

And while she may suffer from a costume glitch here and there, Kaling is reminding us that when it comes to her work as an author, no one does it better. The Emmy-nominated comedian also shared the success of her new book, Why Not Me? ($12; amazon.com) on Instagram. It’s currently number one on The New York Times list of print hardcover best sellers. Well done, Mindy.
