"She loves texture in her clothes. If there's a pattern on a pinafore, she won't wear it with a white blouse. We'll do a bright contrasting color. It just reads better on camera."

How will Mindy's look be updated for season two? "It changes slightly just because fashion changes. It's a different palette," says Salvador. "Last year it was dark jewel tones; this year it's bright jewel tones!"

As for that controversial season finale haircut (a wig in real life), Salvador was a fan. "I loved it! I was like, Please don't take it off. I made her wear it to press events because it was so cute."

The short hair changed up her styling a bit. "We did jeweled collars and things to accentuate it. You'll see a lot more open necklines, because we wanted to frame the haircut."
