Mindy Kaling wore a traditional ‘desi’ attire by an Indian designer to celebrate her Indian heritage on the occasion of Diwali. She wore a pastel green, sheer-sleeved dress by Indian design team Falguni and Shane Peacock to represent her inner Indian princess.
Kaling is the daughter of Indian immigrants and a nominee for an Emmy. She decided to update her traditional appearance by braiding her black hair and wearing a gorgeous necklace by Sethi Couture.
Mindy Kaling took to Instagram to the desi celebration and said, “Diwali week is extremely amazing this year since there are so many fun activities for me and my family. The Festival of Lights is a lovely occasion to celebrate family, forgiveness, and sometimes a wardrobe refresh.”
She added, “I consider myself extremely fortunate to showcase the work of some of India’s most incredible fashion designers. My good buddy, @anjula acharia, turned me onto @falgunipeacock, which I am proudly wearing today. When I wear anything from Falguni, I feel like the most gorgeous confident version of myself.”
Moreover, Reese Witherspoon is one of Kaling’s fellow Hollywood A-Listers. She commented, “Insanely gorg!” on a photo of Kaling wearing the outfit with Elizabeth Berkley reiterating the sentiment.
