Glee: From Target to Vogue- A Style Evolution
Although they play a motley crew of highschool geeks, the cast of Glee are the news spokespeople for Fashion’s Night Out.

Fashion’s Night Out is this event on September 8, 2011 where your favorite stores will stay open later and serve “refreshments” aka tiny cupcakes and cucumber water while you just go shopping at 9pm instead of during normal store hours. Basically, just be prepared for lots of tweeting from your most fashionable friends on this day.

So anyways, the entire Glee cast has been pegged as the FNO spokespeople and talked to Vogue about this honor.

The cast confesses that the only character with any sartorial sense was Chris Colfer’s character, Kurt. Although the show takes place at a high-school in Ohio, Colfer’s character somehow gets his hands on designer duds like the ridiculous see-through floor length Dolce & Gabbana trench. The shows creator Ryan Murphy says the character supposedly orders his clothes online.

Well, we know that the rest of the cast cannot dress. I mean, the cheerleaders didn’t start wearing anything other than their cheerleading uniforms until season 2 and Lea Michele’s character looks like a baby-sitter trapped in her grandma’s clothing.

Chris Colfer said before the show, “When Glee started, I had no idea who Marc Jacobs was. In no way was I a fashion person! I did all my shopping at my small- town Target.” Hmmm judging him.

And Ryan Murphy says Lea Michele was not the red carpet starlet she is now. “When I met Lea, she was only sort of interested in clothes.” Now Lea is the covergirl for Harpers Bazaar September Issue.

Well obviously something changed because now the kids are doing photoshoots for Vogue.

Actually Colfer says it’s Kevin McHale who plays the wheelchair kid that actually dresses the best in real life. “Whenever Kevin sees me in an outfit, he feels the fabric and looks at the label, then goes and buys it!” says Colfer.

McHale claims he was obsessed with a Marc by Marc Jacobs “half-kilt thing” that he “wore the hell out of it last year.”

Say what you want about their fashion sense, but everyone wants to be a Glee kid.

Murphy reveals, “We didn’t want them to look like generic mall kids. Now their looks are being copied!”
