Some inspired promotion from FOX in the US emerged this week. Our favourite Gleeksters are getting their fashion on for a promotional video ahead of the 8th September – the official date for the global Fashion’s Night Out extravaganza. And just 12 days later, the new season of Glee happens to air on the American network.
The skit (above) is too short for my liking (please let there be a full-length music video aired at some point, or at least additional break bumpers with out-takes), but some of the production stills give you an idea of the fun had on set.
Lea Michele looks a-mazing (in Balmain, natch), Heather Morris rocks the currently ubiquitous star print trend and David Bowie‘s Fashion is obviously right on the money.
Glee meets Vogue. Awesome. Inspired.

It’s finally arrived. Glee. In the UK. On E4. Right now.
But before I start writing reams about how super-amazing it is (and I will), a few choice quotes from tonight’s first episode (of a double bill) to whet your appetites for the dry, dark humour of Ryan Murphy‘s newest treasure. Just a quick slice of the dialogue, a cynical, starkly insightful comment on popular youth culture:
“All these kids feel invisible. That’s why they all have a MySpace page.”
~ Mr. Schuester
“I have a phoner in a few moments. That’s an interview. On the phone. With a major media outlet.”
~ Sue Sylvester
“My MySpace page keeps me busy every minute of every single day. Fame is the most important thing in our culture. Being a part of something special makes you special, right?”
~ Rachel Berry
“You’re very talented. I should know. I’m very talented too.”
~ Rachel Berry
