New episodes of Mindy Project, a new Mindy Kaling!

Mindy posted a new photo of herself on April 7, sporting a new hairstyle and captioned “Summer bangs!” In the pic, her hair looks to be around the same mid-length it’s been for a bit now (save that time she cut off all her hair on the show), but the new fringe frames her excellent eyebrows.

In a few more photos the actress/comedian/producer/showrunner/genius (we could go on) shared, she looks thin, stylish, and totally chic. Wearing a Helmut Lang blazer and top with Gucci shoes, she appeared on Chelsea Handler’s late night show, Chelsea Lately. Quipped Mindy in one pic, “My look for Chelsea was MTV veejay.”

Whoa! We always see Mindy as a fashion icon, with a mix of preppy and sexy on the show, and a little more edge in real life. But in this muted palate, she looks trimmer than ever. Perhaps it’s the magic of bangs, but we’re going to go find some money to buy these clothes too...

In a follow-up Insta post, Mindy joked (at least, we think it was a joke) that she wanted to look like “one of Pharrell’s friends.” The star of the Fox show kicked off the second half of Season 2 on April 1 with episodes 15 and 16, after a three month break since the midseason finale.

We’re happy to have Mindy back on our screens every Tuesday night, and totally digging her new bangs. What do you think of the new look?
