Mindy Kaling shows off 40-pound weight loss at 2023 Oscars
Mindy Kaling hit the 2023 Oscars red carpet on Sunday in a gorgeous white Vera Wang gown with a sheer paneled bodice that showed off her slim figure.
The slim fit features delicate ruffles at the waist and freestanding sleeves that elongate the actress' arms.
Karin, who has reportedly lost more than 40 pounds over the past few years, sported a sleek half-up, half-down hairstyle and embraced the glitz and glamor of the night with maroon lips and smoky eyes.
The “Minty Project” creator, designed by Molly Dickson, paired her custom gown with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes at the 95th Gala at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles Oscar Awards Ceremony.
Dixon told E! The skirt was originally designed in black and white.
Kaling wanted to wear a black dress, but chose white because Wang is famous for her wedding dress designs.
Kaling and Dickson perform a “sitting test” and the “Never Have I Ever” creator stands up effortlessly.
The skirt and boning were originally in nude, but Kaling, 43, requested a change to white.

“Vera loves the unconventional sleeves that go with a lot of her bridal gowns, and I think it makes it very modern,” designer Christian Siriano said on “Live From E!”.
On Instagram, fans were shocked by the star's weight loss, with one person even commenting, “Sister, put down the ozone.”
Kaling, however, has been open about her slimming down.
“I eat what I like. If I'm on any kind of restrictive diet, it never works for me. I just eat less,” Kaling told “Entertainment Tonight” in April 2022 explain.
“I wish the way I lost a little weight had a little more vibrancy or energy, but that's how I did it,” the “Office” actress continued at the time.
The actress initially decided to lose weight after welcoming her second child in September 2020.
