What do you think of the star's new look?

New network, new movie, new book — new do! Mindy Kaling is starting off her summer right.

The Mindy Project creator (and one of our perpetual style crushes) showed off her brand new bob at an N.Y.C. event for her book Why Not Me. The star, who normally rocks long, possibly extensions-aided waves (sometimes with blonde tips or faux bangs), showed off a super-sleek, chin length cut with a very slight auburn tint along with her just-launched book.

This time last year (almost exactly to the day!), Kaling showed off her “summer bob,” a shoulder grazing layered cut more in the “lob” territory. At the time, she said, “Obsessed with my summer bob by @clarisshair. See ya sweaty neck, I got work to do,” though there was no word whether neck sweat was a factor in her latest cut. She did, however, call the new look “dreamy:”

Kaling is something of a fashionista now that she’s landed the cover of InStyle, but she hasn’t let that go to her head. “My diva moments are more tied to panicky worry,” Kaling said. “[My assistant] will have prepared everything for a day and then that morning, I wake up and I’m like, ‘I don’t want to do any of that; it has to be completely different.’ But I don’t throw hairbrushes at people or anything like that. I haven’t gotten there yet.”
