Everyone Is Hanging Out With Mindy Kaling


Despite her own published concern—her new essay collection, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, is out now—these days, everyone’s dying to hang out with Mindy Kaling. The writer/producer/actress/former shopping blogger has been on a promotion tour of late, first fêting her book with a Tory Burch-hosted party in New York and, last night, one helmed by Glamour‘s Cindi Leive in L.A. “She’s like the super-cool, very funny, still very relatable friend you wish you had,” Leive gushed. (She’d excerpted a chapter on boys and men in her magazine’s November issue.) And judging by last night’s guest list, Kaling isn’t short on friends. At The Spare Room at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, her Office co-stars Ellie Kemper and B.J. Novak came out to support the first-time author, as did Aaron Sorkin, Nicole Richie, and Anna Faris.

“I’m totally insufferable now,” Kaling joked, surveying the Hollywood-heavy crowd, which also included Jon Hamm and girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt, Jimmy Kimmel, and Busy Philipps. “Being an author, that’s the one you can be the most pretentious about—now people actually think I’m a person of consequence.” And the attention wasn’t lost on Aziz Ansari, of NBC’s Parks and Recreation. “I’m huge supporter of Indian actors on NBC sitcoms getting incredibly lucrative book deals,” he said. “So really, any attention brought to Indian actors on NBC sitcoms is well deserved.”

Who Makes Us Run For Cover?


The latest data from the publishing industry’s Audit Bureau of Circulations is out, WWD reports, and with it some tantalizing news about who really sent magazines flying off the newsstand in 2010 (and who didn’t). Despite some caveats (reporting doesn’t go through every 2010 issue for Condé Nast or Hearst magazines), the runaway winner was Lady Gaga, who graced the best-selling issue of Rolling Stone, the second-best-selling issue of Vanity Fair, and the third-best-selling issue of Elle during the reported period. Joining her in the cover girl pantheon are Rihanna (newsstand magic for GQ and Seventeen) and, believe it or not, Lauren Conrad, who appeared on Glamour‘s September issue, its best-selling of the year through November. Curiously not mentioned is Kim Kardashian, whose nude-and-body-painted cover of W‘s November art issue caused quite a stir. Glamour, at least, is betting on her: The reality starlet appears, in Tom Ford pajamas and a La Perla bra, on the monthly’s new February 2011 issue (left).

Spend Thrift


There are a million great new things to pick up this holiday season—check out’s gift guide for just a few of them—but if you’re not opposed to a few gently used pieces, there are good bargains to be had as well. Last night, we headed down to one of New York’s best thrift stores, Housing Works, where Glamour‘s Suze Yalof Schwartz was hosting a chic shopping event. (She’d also curated pieces from the nonprofit’s archives; as with all purchases at Housing Works, proceeds go to benefit homeless New Yorkers living with HIV and AIDS.) Steals abounded, from a Vera Wang L.B.D. for $110 to a faux-fur leopard-print coat for just $45. A great selection of vintage jewelry—innovatively retooled by Housing Works’ in-house accessories guru Maria Eisen—was all under $100. And while Schwartz liked digging through the piles to find just the right pieces, throwing her own fête was a big draw, too. “Host a party where I can invite all my friends so they can shop at these amazing prices and it goes to a good cause? Of course I said yes,” the editor declared. “Besides, just hosting is fun. It’s like having a wedding without all the stress!”
