Girl, work!

Just hours before she made an appearance at NYC's annual BookCon, Mindy Kaling stepped out on Friday, May 29, working a brand-new, supremely fabulous hairstyle: a beautiful, bouncy, chin-length bob!

The Mindy Project creator and star, 35, debuted the fresh highlighted 'do while leaving the Trump Soho. (It's the shortest her hair's been since before she worked on The Office, though she did rock a lob last summer.) To complete her look, she slipped into an elegant, ebony skirt suit and added ankle booties.

Once she hit the Javits Center, Kaling signed excerpts of her much-anticipated new book, Why Not Me?. She even took a snap of some of the ladies who patiently waited in line for her signature, then shared that shot via Instagram. "A couple cute book lovers who waited in line to get copies of my excerpt!" she captioned it.

The L.A.-based multi-hyphenate has been traveling quite a lot this month! Before making the rounds in the Big Apple, Kaling (with her signature long locks) was in Cannes, where she promoted her new Disney-Pixar film, Inside Out, at the French city's annual film festival.
