The midnight blue bodige of the Prabal Gurung designed dress hugged Kaling, ending in delicate fringe. The off-the-shoulder gown perfectly accented Kaling's gorgeous skin.

The Mindy Project star recently optioned Alyssa Mastromonaco's memoir of her time in the White House during the Obama administration, Who Thought This Was A Good Idea?, for television. Kaling will adapt the book for television with 3 Arts Entertainment.

This is the actress' third time walking the Met Gala red carpet. Last year, she attended the opening of the Costume Institute's Manus X Machina exhibit opening in a glittery white concoction by Tory Burch.

Clearly, Kaling likes to sparkle on fashion's biggest night. In 2013, Kaling looked absolutely perfect in a curve-hugging custom plum Lela Rose gown.
