With a new show to promote, Mindy Kaling didn't have time to actually attend New York Fashion Week -- but the actress was certainly there in spirit!

On September 8, the star, creator and producer of the Mindy Project decided it was "fake Fashion Week tweet time." The 33-year-old funnywoman then imagined a variety of scenarios involving celebrities such as Adrien Brody, 39, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, 31, Anderson Cooper, 45, and Ryan Lochte, 28.

"Was late to Alexander Wang because couldn't drag Adrien Brody out of bed at Trump Soho. [English TV host] Fearne Cotton put her backpack on my seat, though, yay," Kaling joked. "At Y-3, Joseph Gordon-Levitt asked who made my bra. 'They're bespoke, of course.' 'Huh?' he responded, unable to hear over the din."

Kaling then pretended to suffer an injury while sitting front row at yet another fashion show. "Great, nearly blinded by a rhinestone flung off a gown at Jenny Packham," she tweeted. "Adrien and I now at Columbia Presbyterian [Hospital]."

Later that morning, Kaling jokingly tweeted that she was "thrown out of Diane von Furstenberg for allegedly asking James Franco if he 'was DTF at DVF.' Adrien and I no longer speaking."

Another tweet involved First Daughter Malia Obama, 14. "Took off [my] heels and pretended to be Malia Obama to sit front row at Prabal Gurung," the former Office writer and star wrote. "It worked until [teenaged fashion blogger] Tavi [Gevinson] and Anderson Cooper ratted me out."

Kaling then pretended to encounter even more trouble over a seating snafu. "Is this a joke? Ryan Lochte is sitting in my seat at Tory Burch!" she tweeted. "Texted [Special Adviser to the Secretary of State] Ronan Farrow about it; he was giving a symposium or something."

The actress' pal, Parks and Recreation actor Aziz Ansari, 29, then got in on the fun himself, tweeting a message to Kaling. "I got you and [Alexander] Skarsgard on list for Alex Wang party," he wrote. "Secret location is Whole Foods on Bowery (VIP area: frozen foods.)"

Kaling's new show, The Mindy Project, premieres September 25 at 9:30 p.m. EST on FOX.
