The Mindy Project star showcased her toned legs in a pair of high-waisted shorts with hues of purple and orange. 

The beauty added a mesh shirt underneath with the same color scheme, and added a colorful blazer on top to complete her overall ensemble for the star-studded event. 

The actress slipped into a pair of closed-toe, lavender heels to coincide with her outfit. 

Mindy’s hair was parted to the side, allowing her long locks to fall down past her shoulders in large, elegant waves.

To accessorize her look for the day, the mother of two donned a colorful bracelet on her left wrist along with a pair of orange, dangly earrings. 

Mindy was all smiles as she joined a special panel discussion to talk about HBO Max’s upcoming animated series called, Velma. She not only voices the title character, but also serves as an executive producer. 

The reimagined series follows the ‘origin’ of the Scooby-Doo gang, and includes beloved characters such as Shaggy, Fred, and Daphne. However, Scooby himself will not be a character in the animation. 

According to Deadline, Mindy opened up about the series during an interview amid the panel. ‘Most Indian American [women], when they see skeptical, hardworking under-appreciated characters, they can identify with her. The vast majority are ready for it. This show is for them.’ 

She also explained that she had always ‘identified with Velma,’ adding, ‘She was so cute but not traditionally hot, with a questionable haircut.’ 

‘I feel so honored I get to do the voice. She’s a truth teller, cutting through the bulls**t of life. When you are smart and under-appreciated. I hope people appreciate that.’

When talking about Velma’s character, Mindy added, ‘This is a journey of self discovery for her, which drew us to this character.’ 

‘It’s a high school show with the events and the dances in addition to it being a murder mystery. Obviously, Daphne and Fred are popular while Velma is an outsider. Seeing them come together is the fun about the show,’ she concluded, reported Deadline.  

Other celebrities who joined the panel included Constance Wu, who voices the character of Daphne in the upcoming animation series. 

She donned a pair of black slacks along with a white-cropped top and black vest that was left unbuttoned. 

To accessorize her ensemble, the Crazy Rich Asians star added a black cap and gold-hooped earrings.
