Glee’s McKinley High is a long way from New York’s Fashion Avenue, but cast members Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Dianna Agron are right at home in a new Vogue video covering David Bowie’s “Fashion.”
The video is being used to publicize Vogue magazine’s New York Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fashion’s Night Out event Sept 8.
Rachel, Artie, Quinn and crew all get makeovers that would rock McKinley High.
Michele kicks off the video in a metallic mini-dress. But before long the whole cast is strutting their stuff on the runway.
Jenna Ushkowitz hits the catwalk in a red structured dress.
Agron shocks in a short Prince Valiant bob.
Leading men Cory Monteith and Mark Salling also Vogue for the video.
Coach Sue Sylvester, (Jane Lynch) works the megaphone, shouting “I love fashion” and “get out there and shop’
“When Glee started, I had no idea who Marc Jacobs was. In no way was I a fashion person,’ said Colfer. “I did all my shopping at my small-town Target. Maybe if I dressed better I wouldn’t have had such a hard time in school.”
“Now, as Kurt, I get to wear all these amazing things, by people whose names I can’t even pronounce,” he added.
Lea, however, has matured into a fashion icon, covering major magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar.
“From the beginning, I asked the costume designer to give each of these kids an archetypal identity,” said show creator Ryan Murphy.
“We didn’t want them to look like generic mall kids. Now their looks are being copied!”
The video debuted last night (Aug. 24) during a repeat “Glee” episode on Fox. Check it out below.
