The sartorial chatter quickly gave way to a more serious kind, and they touched on Politico's suggestion that these aspects of a woman's persona detract from her boss status. "I thought that Politico article was very incorrect in many ways," Kaling told Flare. "The assumption that you’re seen as weak if you have any interests outside of professional ones... That’s not what any real person is like. But, it’s become the new 'Are women funny?'" You heard her. She doesn't need to pick between professionalism and style savvy: She can meet with Fox execs wearing Opening Ceremony if she pleases.
Kaling doesn't conform to the idea of dressing exclusively for what makes you look taller, slimmer, and more polished. She wears what she loves and feels beautiful in, and that's something we can get behind. And, so is the funny gal gracing another well-earned solo magazine cover. She certainly has the style savvy to land her a glossy spread, and the stand-up-for-yourself smarts that truly make her a role model.
This fall, there's only more Mindy to look forward to. She'll be delivering another seaon of The Mindy Project; her second memoir, Why Not Me?; and, an awesome cover story that further proves her boss status. Read the rest of the interview over at Flare. (Flare)
