Lea Michele’s new love for fashion and dressing up has come from working on the ‘Glee’ show, according to boss Ryan Murphy.
The creator of Glee says Lea’s blossoming and developing sense of style is down to the confidence she’s gained since playing Rachel Berry on the show. Ryan told American Vogue: “When I met Lea, she was only sort of interested in clothes- 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.”
Lea’s certainly got the red-carpet X Factor, appearing at glitzy events in couture gowns – we always look forward to seeing what the star will be wearing next.
She’s not the only Glee star that has had a bit of an education in fashion since the beginning of the show. Chris Colfer, who plays the impeccably dressed teen Kurt, says that he’s learnt huge amounts from playing his character on the show.
He said: “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. 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.”
