Wowing in white! Mindy Kaling arrived at the 2023 Academy Awards red carpet at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday, March 12, wearing a custom cutout Vera Wang gown.
The 43-year-old is among the many celebrity presenters for this year’s awards show — and she undeniably brought her fashion A-game for the occasion. Her breathtaking ensemble featured long off-the-shoulder sleeves and a cutout corset bodice, dreamt up by her longtime stylist, Molly Dickson.
She accessorized the double take-worthy number with Giuseppe Zanotti platform heels and statement earrings.
Kaling’s hairstylist, Marc Mena, gave her a slicked-back, half-up, half-down hairstyle that emphasized her long, wavy mane.
For makeup, Eva Kim created a statement eye makeup look starring extra long lashes and cat-eye liner, teamed with a moody shade of lipstick.
Wearing white to the Oscars is a big deal for Kaling. The Office alum previously admitted that she purposely avoided wearing white for years, worried that it wouldn’t flatter her.
“I never wear winter white!” she captioned an Instagram post in December. “I was always so worried about it not being flattering and also about dropping food on it. ”
