Mindy Kaling Channels Marge Simpson For 'Glamour' (PHOTO)

There's no doubt that Mindy Kaling is comedy's cover girl of the month, having first graced the cover of New York Magazine and now making an appearance in Glamour ahead of the premiere of her new series, "The Mindy Project."

Inside the October issue, Kaling channels one of TV comedy's longest running and most beloved female roles, Marge Simpson, complete with sky-high blue hair, green tube dress, red pearls and all. In the interview, Kaling reveals that it's the hair that really makes Mindy love Marge:

"Marge Simpson is the one who's really funny. Her character looks so crazy, but then she's supposed to be totally demure. I think [Simpsons creator] Matt Groening is a genius for giving her that hair," She tells Glamour.

"The Mindy Project" debuts on Fox on Sept. 25. Click over to to read more and catch Mindy's full interview in the October issue available digitally and in stores now.
