Salvador Perez talk about The Signature Looks of The Mindy Project’s Mindy Lahiri as the Series Wraps
Mindy Lahiri may constantly shift through her male suitors and motivations in The Mindy Project like there’s no tomorrow, but there’s one source of stability our leading heroine always falls back on: her unique sense of style. Throughout the rom-com’s six-season run, Mindy’s outfits have arguably become the most colorful and vivacious on television, with her character seemingly sporting every color and print under the sun. (Everything except for black, of course.) As we approach the end of the series, Salvador Perez, the show’s Emmy-nominated costume designer, walked us through all of Mindy’s signature looks.
Season one, episode two
“The outfit Mindy wore when she met Seth Meyers’s character. This outfit stands out to me, as it set the tone for her character. It was a yellow cardigan, a horse print top and a black-and-white plaid skirt, and grey tights. It was fun and eclectic, and it showed me that Mindy wasn’t afraid to have fun with clothes. At the time it seemed so radical — now by comparison it’s subdued.”
Season one, episode 21
“The first lemon-print dress. Season one was about figuring out her character’s style. I found this fantastic Alice and Olivia lemon-print dress and thought it was hysterical. Mindy loved it too, but it had a weird strappy back, so we recut the dress, and of course we added a magenta cardigan, which covers the back anyway. You will recognize the cardigan as we also have it in yellow from earlier in the season. When Mindy likes something, we get it in all the colors available.”
