Mindy Kaling Paired a Peplum With a Sheer Corset at the Oscars

Nobody does a white dress better than Vera Wang, and nobody wears a white Vera Wang dress better than Mindy Kaling.

The actor, who is presenting at the 2023 Oscars, arrived on Hollywood's hottest red carpet in a sharp white corset gown, which she paired with collar-bone-grazing drop earrings. But let's talk about the details of this dress: It fits Kaling to a T, from the column skirt to the boning to the detached sleeves (or would you call them fingerless gloves?). And then there's the subtle peplum detail at the hip, which proves that the divisive early-2000s trend is not going anywhere.

With the help of stylist Molly Dickson, Kaling has been killing the red carpet this season in sexy, timeless looks. At the PGA Awards last month, she wowed in a custom Monique Lhuillier gown, and before that, she opted for a little white dress with rosettes on the bust by Magda Butrym.

But don't let the monochromatic black and white looks fool you—Kaling is still a sucker for color. The 43-year-old wore a cherry red power suit at the Michael Kors show at New York Fashion Week last month, proving her love for bright colors hasn't died.

Mindy Kaling has several shows in the works at the moment—including Sex Lives of College Girls and Never Have I Ever—so we can expect several more red-carpet appearances in the near future.
