She. Issa. Selina. Mindy Kaling this weekend for Halloween honors all the giants.
The actor, writer, director and producer has revealed a range of alter egos in a post on Instagram on Friday and wrote, “That’s how I live for Halloween costumes. This year I decided to dress up in some female comedy legends in some of their iconic lewks. Can you guess who I am ???”
A series of photographs shows Kalinga posing Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Selina Meyer in her red Veep dress; Reese Witherspoon Elle Woods in her pink dress from Legally blonde (chihuahua included!); in Issa Rae’s Not ready the character, Issa, in his characteristic combination of a colorful blazer and heels with suspenders.

The post aroused a lot of love among the celebrities in question as Witherspoon asked, “MEEEEEEEEEEE?!?! 😍” after correctly recognizing the other looks, and Ruffin called Kalinga “a sweet little honey beeeeeeeee!”
Rae replied, “I don’t think you understand! 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾,” while Wong let the emoji speak for her: “WHAAAAAA ??? !!!! 😭😭😭👥👏👏👏👏 “.”
The Elle Woods costume is especially important to Kaling and Witherspoon because it is Kaling screenwriting for Legally blonde 3who catches up with Elle Woods at 40 years old. Kaling writes it with Parks and recreation writer and producer Dan Goor.
This was published by MGM Legally blonde 3 will hit theaters in May 2022, and Witherspoon will reprise her role.
