Lucky magazine chatted up Mindy Kaling at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills recently and found out all sorts of details about the actor/writer/shopping enthusiast's life. Her go-to date outfit these days is "a polka dotted t-shirt with a pair of flattering jeans and colorful heels" and she likes to splurge on "Tom Ford makeup." The girl chat got serious, though, when Kaling was asked about her best shopping partner: "my mother, who passed away two months ago. To no one in LA am I a fashion expert, but to my mom I always was." [Lucky Mag]
