Mindy Kaling shows off dramatic 40-lb weight loss in Oscars cut-out gown but fans are distracted by another dress detail

Mindy Kaling shows off dramatic 40-lb weight loss in Oscars cut-out gown but fans are distracted by another dress detail

MINDY Kaling has made waves as the Oscars, displaying her toned body in a bold white dress.

However, fans were left confused after a wardrobe change from the actress, comedian, and producer.

The 43-year-old started off the night with a revealing gown by Vera Wang.

The look consisted of a long fitted skirt with a peplum attachment, with the top section of the dress attached to the bottom by just a few strips of fabric.

Alongside the revealing corset-style bodice of the dress, Mindy wore flared white sleeves from her elbow down.

She added dark, dramatic eye makeup and kept her loose hair swept back behind her shoulders.

Fans’ attention, however, was swept up by her outfit change midway through the prestigious event.

When Mindy presented an award on stage during the night alongside John Cho, she opted to wear the exact same dress but in black.

Viewers quickly took to Twitter to check whether their eyes were deceiving them.

One person asked: “Did Mindy Kaling change into the exact same dress in black??”

Another confused viewer stated: “We’re so deep into the Oscars that I’m questioning whether Mindy Kaling was actually wearing a white dress before or not.”

“WAIT! Mindy Kaling just changed from a white dress to a black dress. THE SAME DRESS??? Why??? #Oscars2023,” one person questioned.

A further disbelieving comment read: “I know Mindy Kaling did not just change into….her exact dress, but in black.”


While the mother-of-two‘s gown switch-up didn’t win all viewers over, both dresses showed off the star’s dramatic weight loss.

Last year, The View host Joy Behar was slammed for pointing out Mindy’s weight while using an offensive term.

During a Christmassy episode, Joy, 80, called The Mindy Project creator a “skinny b***h” when she walked onto the set during a broadcast.

As Mindy sat down next to Joy, the host said: “First of all, welcome to the show you skinny b***h!”

Mindy laughed and replied: “Thank you, I’m very happy to here. Thank you for having me and for saying that.”

While Joy’s comments seemed to be in jest, The View fans were still shocked at her remarks.

One tweeted in outrage: “Joy calls Mindy a skinny b***h.”

Another added on an online thread: “Ummmm Joy saying Mindy is a skinny b***h is a bit uncalled for.”

One viewer commented on Mindy’s slim figure, posting, “Oooh Mindy looks gooooood,” with a “smoking” GIF.
