And ... Action! The 'Glee' Cast Goes Glam for Fashion's Night Out

Leave it to the stars of Glee to use their voices for something cool. The castmates are serving as spokespeople for this year’s Fashion’s Night Out, and celebrating the new role with a stylish story on vogue.com.

“When Glee started, I had no idea who Marc Jacobs was. In no way was I a fashion person,” says Emmy nominee Chris Colfer. “I did all my shopping at my small-town Target. Now, as Kurt, I get to wear all these amazing things, by people whose names I can’t even pronounce.”

Same goes for Lea Michele, who tells Vogue she would “never wear” a sweater with an animal face, as her character Rachel did on one memorable episode. “When I met Lea, she was only sort of interested in clothes,” explains Glee creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy. “But in the last two years, she’s become a red carpet star. I think what happened is Lea went to an event, and someone said, ‘Oh, you look pretty.’ It was an interesting moment for her.”

While the stars are making fashionable impressions off screen, on the show, Murphy is guiding their wardrobe choices. “From the beginning, I asked the costume designer to give each of these kids an archetypal identity,” he shares. “We didn’t want them to look like generic mall kids. Now their looks are being copied!”

Copycats take note: Vogue reports that Colfer is the only one who wears designer clothes on the show — other pieces come from places like Anthropologie and H&M– and Murphy says he’s asked “all the time” where character Kurt would find such threads in Lima, Ohio. The answer? Online.
