“Never Have I Ever” creator Mindy Kaling is making the press rounds in New York City to promote the release of season three on Netflix, and she’s showing off her vibrant wardrobe. With the help of stylist Hayley Atkin, “The Office” alum and creative genius opted for a purple Oscar de la Renta shift dress to hit NBC’s “Today” show, finished with a crystal-embellished trim around the sleeves and neckline.

Playing on the design’s ’60s influences, Kaling, 43, added color with a modern update with a pair of architectural gemstone drop earrings and PVC ankle-strap pumps that featured a glitter cap toe. She wore her hair to the side and let her loose waves blow in the wind, opting for a glossy lip and a sweep of silver eyeshadow.

Selena Gomez wore the same Oscar de la Renta dress for a trip to the White House in May, albeit in a navy shade. She styled the look with basic white pumps and small gold hoops. Gomez wore the outfit to MTV Entertainment’s Mental Health Youth Action Forum to talk about her personal self-care journey and emphasize the importance of therapy.

It’s safe to assume the 60s fashion revival is here to stay. Ahead, you can shop the frock in both colorways, and get a closer look at how both stars styled it for their respective events.
