The Girls of 2013 - No. 6

December 16, 2013

Mindy Kaling has got it all - she's beautiful, fashionable, hilariously funny, and really smart. It's hard not to have a good year when you have all that going for you, but 2013 was Mindy's best one yet.

Her hit TV show The Mindy Project is one of my absolute favorites, and in it's second season it's definitely found its groove (let's hope the show's small upcoming hiatus doesn't kill that momentum). Before that, Mindy made people laugh both on-screen and behind-the-scenes as a star and writer for The Office, and last year her memoir Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) made people fall in love with her unapologetic humor and charm.

Honestly, I may or may not be a bit biased. I have probably said (on multiple occasions) that "Mindy Kaling is my spirit animal" and I cannot even be embarrassed about it because it's just true. Mindy is so cool, and she's cool not because she pretends to be perfect but because she embraces the fact that women are complex and imperfect and can be brilliant doctors but still care about the Khloe-Lamar breakup more than is probably necessary and believe that scenes straight out of romantic comedies can actually occur in real life.

Mindy has sass, that's for sure, and it shows up in her tweets and red carpet ensembles alike (as well as her on-screen persona's wardrobe, which is full of Madewell and Kate Spade and totally trendy but also very realistic and reasonably-priced). She's not afraid of a bold color or geometric print, and she can be both fun and glamorous with her outfits.

If you aren't already on the Mindy fan train, you might want to hop on because there's no doubt that Mindy Kaling is going places.
