Behold – yet another reason to love Mindy Kaling!
Much like her alter ego on "The Mindy Project," the 33-year-old actress is known for being perfectly … imperfect – and that was perhaps no more evident than it was on Thursday as she made her way to the set of "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" midway through her glamification process.

The funny girl was snapped outside NBC Studios in Manhattan wearing the stylish patterned dress she would later don during the TV interview, but her hair was still "in the works." Sections of it were curled and pinned as she walked down the city sidewalk.
This is Kaling's second amusing hairstyle of the week. On Tuesday's season finale of her show, she debuted a super cropped 'do as her lovingly high-maintenance doctor character tried to prove to her minister boyfriend that she'd be able to rough it during a year-long volunteer mission in Haiti.
While her character's look wasn't exactly a hit – she was mistaken for a young boy – she got her man in the end. And on Thursday, Kaling tweeted this fun behind-the-scenes snapshot of her wigging out before filming the episode.
