Mindy Kaling Emmys 2013: 'The Mindy Project' Star Glows In Form-Fitting Red Carpet Gown (PHOTOS)

We've been gushing about Mindy Kaling's style for a while now but we were still surprised when "The Mindy Project" star showed up at the 2013 Emmys red carpet wearing such a glamorous gown.

The former "The Office" star ditched her unexpected chic ensembles and fun printed outfits for a plum-coloured red carpet sweeping gown which featured short sleeves and cutouts above the chest which were trimmed with sparkly jewels.

The petite actress flaunted her gorgeous figure in the curve-hugging gown which accentuated her waist and made us wish we could look half as good as she did.

Unlike several other actresses who kept their hair down on the Emmy Awards red carpet, Mindy followed fellow funny gal Aubrey Plaza's lead and chose to put hers up with wavy sections hanging around her face.

Love ya, Mindy!

She's in fine company:
