Here Are Mindy Kaling's Outfit Choices for Her New Book Cover

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Mindy Kaling announced that she'll publish a follow-up to her 2011 book of essays, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (And Other Concerns) back in June. The book will be called Why Not Me? and she spoke briefly about its contents in an interview with The Los Angeles Times (she'll address that Elle cover blowup among many other things).

But most importantly, this book has a cover, and on that cover will be Mindy Kaling, and on Mindy Kaling will be fash-uns. The author Instagrammed four potential looks and it's actually pretty tough to choose a favorite. Take a whack at it anyway below.

Impossible right??

For more information on the actual contents of her essays, there's some book talk around minute 33:30:

And lastly, no publication date has been set for Why Not Me?, but these pics offer hope that there will be one soon.
