Mindy Kaling Is A Stunner In Hot Leather Leggings

Talk about an unexpected (and much welcome) outfit.

Mindy Kaling attended the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of "Alex of Venice" on Friday wearing the heck out of a pair of tight leather Helmet Lang leggings.

"The Mindy Project" star accented her sexy legwear with a Helmet Lang "Smoking" blazer, a twist-neck top and black pumps.

A chic updo and smoky eye makeup completed the dark New York look; a total style 180 from her usual colourful and vibrant outfits.

Mindy recently made headlines when she hilariously pointed out that Kate Middleton "copied" her style. Over the Easter weekend, the Duchess of Cambridge sported a white-and-blue floral LK Bennett dress; a dress that Mindy herself wore a week prior.

"UHH, Miss Duchess Whoever, I WORE this dress last week! What's next? Kate in my donut print pajama bottoms I mean c'mon," wrote Mindy, next to a side-by-side Instagram pic of herself and the Duchess in the same frock.

We gotta love a girl with a sense of humour and amazing style.
