Mindy Kaling: Man Repeller & Proud Of It

101-003-MindyProject_101_7_509
Mindy Kaling loves her sequins, almost as much as we love her sparkling sense of humor. In her new Fox show, The Mindy Project, Kaling can be seen working as a gynecologist by day and flaunting some serious bling by night. However, in an interview with Terry Gross on NPR's "Fresh Air," Kaling admitted that her vibrant wardrobe may not abide by the laws of attraction. "I have found it to be true that men tend to not understand or like sequins very much," said Kaling. Wait, what?
This ongoing realization has been chronicled most famously by Leandra Medine a.k.a the Man Repeller. Although women may appreciate Medine and Kaling's sense of style, some men may find it, ahem, slightly less attractive (we can't even imagine what men thought of the green, balloon shorts Medine recently wore at NYFW, we dug them). In her interview, Kaling added a few other man-deterring items: "Men don't like the wedge shoe, I have noticed. Men don't like the statement necklace or chunky, tribal jewelry." Well, there goes our entire fall wardrobe.
So, what's a girl to do? Like Kaling, do we continue to "dress for other women"? Or, do we try to appeal to the minimalist male aesthetic?
