The star looks exceptional dressed in punchy colors and bold geometrics in the issue, and while you can't pick it up until Friday, thankfully Kaling took to Instagram to share a few behind-the-scenes photos from the shoot. In typical Kaling fashion, she transformed the typical sneak-peek shots into a hilarious play-by-play of her day on set. Scroll down to see what she shared, and be sure to pick up the issue when it arrives on newsstands (and for digital download) this Friday, Sept. 19, to see the full feature. "On the left: me, stylish and unsmiling in the gorgeous new #instylemagazine spread. On the right: me, after the shoot, unable to remove the expensive ring from my swollen finger," Kaling captioned. Stylist Kate Sebbah zips up Kaling's dress at the shoot. Kaling looks pensive between takes. "Between set-ups at #instylemagazine," she wrote. P.S. Don't miss the return of The Mindy Project tonight!
