Mindy Kaling can rock any color, and her newest red carpet appearance proves she can rock even the most gothic look effortlessly. On Nov 19, Kaling turned every head as she arrived in this figure-hugging, black gown for the 13th annual Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Governors Awards.

For the star-studded gala, the Mindy Project star wowed in a dark, mystifying Versace gown with a high slit on her left leg, velvet detailing around her breasts, and a studded strap detail. She paired the look with matching pointed heels, ZYDO jewelry, and Le Vian Jewelry, which was all with the help of her stylist Molly Dickson and her assistant Jenna Anne Filingeri.

As for her hair and makeup, she went all out with the dark feminine energy aesthetic we’ve all adored. With the help of hairstylist Zachary Morad, she arrived on the red carpet with her black locks slicked back elegantly. For her dark makeup, she and makeup artist Carola Gonzalez achieved a vampy look on dark, smokey eyes, and a wine shade for her pout.

Kaling drove fans wild even more when she uploaded a snapshot of her own to Instagram, looking like a confident goddess in this dark gown. She uploaded the photo with the caption, “I’ll stop wearing black when they make a darker color.”
