There's a reason why Mindy Kaling is one of the most relatable celebrities in the business.

In her latest social media post, Kaling, 36, kept it real by giving fans an inside look at how she gets ready for a red carpet event.

"Awards Show prep. America's sweetheart," she wrote along with a photo of her posing in a strapless corset and pair of Spanx.

The Mindy Project creator and star can also be seen applying deodorant while standing in her trailer.

That evening, Kaling attended the Costume Designers Guild Awards where she presented a trophy for outstanding period television series.

Designer Salvador Perez, who also is Mindy Project's costume designer, custom created a red gown for Kaling that featured Swarovski crystals throughout.

And could the Oscars be the next stop on the actress' award season schedule? Kaling's Pixar movie Inside Out, in which she voices the character of Disgust, is nominated for best animated feature and best original screenplay.
