“I’m thrilled to be hosting the Costumes Designers Guild Awards. Costume design and fashion are close to my heart, and I promise many, possibly too many, outfit changes,” Kaling wrote on Instagram.
The Costume Designers Guild Awards will take place on Jan. 28, 2020, at the Beverly Hilton. The annual ceremony celebrates excellence in film, television, and short form Costume Design.
Salvador Perez, president of the CDG and Costume Designer for “The Mindy Project,” “Champions,” “Four Weddings And A Funeral,” and the upcoming “Never Have I Ever” said, “I am so excited that Mindy is returning to the CDGA, this time as our host. Sharing a long-time collaboration with her has been the highlight of my career. I have designed a dress for Mindy to wear to the awards every year she has attended, so we are continuing with our tradition and I’m designing a custom gown for her to sparkle in this January!”
