Actress Mindy Kaling features inside the latest issue of Vogue (the April issue covered by Kim Kardashian and Kanye West) and talks about dressing for her shape. Mindy says her weight often fluctuates and when she weighs less, she prefers to wear slightly oversized designs. However, when she weighs more, she likes to show off her figure in body-conscious clothing. She explains how she likes to dress her figure:

“When I’m at my thinnest, I tend to wear things that don’t show off my body. But when I’m bigger, I’ll go body-con, which comes from a place of ‘This is my perimeter, in case you were wondering if I was actually much bigger.’ ”

On her own body image, Mindy says she has plenty of things she would like to change but she adds that she isn’t interested in being skinny, although she likes to always improve herself:

“There’s a whole list of things I would probably change about myself. For example, I’m always trying to lose fifteen pounds. But I never need to be skinny. I don’t want to be skinny. I’m constantly in a state of self-improvement.”

Speaking on not being afraid to take fashion risks, Mindy says she finds it boring to play by the rules and she doesn’t want to be known for simply playing it safe:

“It’s really tempting not to take chances. But I don’t want to be fearful. I don’t want my tombstone to say, she hid her imperfections well on the red carpet.”
