Glee at the Fox All-Star Party

Posted on January 10, 2012

Darlings, most of the cast of Glee stopped their dancing and singing long enough to get dressed up (or rather “dressed” “up”) for the Fox All-Star Party. Let’s ignore the ugly backdrop that looks like every ’70s kitchen floor and see how they did.

Chord Overstreet

 This look is pretty close to becoming a uniform, so prevalent is it among male celebs under 25. The scuffed boots, skinny jeans and v-neck T is a look that might have to die soon because T Lo are getting tired of it.

On the other hand, a young guy could do a lot worse than this.

 

Chris Colfer

Still working that Gay Frodo look, we see.

Cory Monteith

 Oh, Corey. This is painful. A man your size and shape should stay away from light-colored suits like this because they just turn you into a beige brick. Dark suits with light shirts not only provide contrast, they provide shape, Corey. Look into it. Also, your ill-fitting jacket and sad, limp shirt collar are making our eyes twitch.

 

Dot Jones

Well.

That shut us up.

Jane Lynch

 Still shutting up.

 

Jenna Ushkowitz in 6 Shore Road

 That dress is weirdly shaped and the necklace seems a little grandiose, but we love her hair and makeup here.

 

Jayma Mays in Burberry Prorsum

 It’s a shame that, by pure coincidence, Jayma’s dress also looks like every ’70s kitchen floor and thus it’s clashing with the backdrop. An interesting choice for her. We’re sure it looked better away from the linoleum backdrop.

KevinMcHale

Pining for one’s youth is a waste of time and energy, but every once in a while we see some young guy wearing an outfit we’re not likely to be able to get away with ourselves and we feel burning envy. He looks really great. Except for the gold chain.

Lea Michele in Peter Som

 Of course.

Mark Salling

 We can’t remember the last time he made a public appearance and wasn’t wearing jeans. The suit doesn’t actually fit him all that well and the shirt/tie color combo doesn’t feel very fresh to us, but it’s better than showing up looking like you’re ready to start your shift at the mini-mart.

Matthew Morrison

Surprisingly chic.

      Jenna Ushkowitz’s necklace is casting some weird reflections on her face, but her hair and makeup are great. Jane Lynch’s makeup is also good. But I am so disappointed in Dot Jones – I love her and I want her to look nice!

      • Jolene Barnett

        Light reflections! Oh, that’s what it is! I was wondering why her face looked wet in spots. LoL

        We’ve been tiling our fireplace recently and she’s overdressed for tiling. That pretty pink top would get spoiled. But perfect for the monster truck rally.

      Dot Jones looks like she should be outside in the crowd watching the celebrities walk in on the red carpet.  She and Jane Lynch must have gotten the same “mom jeans” memo.

      My kitchen floor currently DOES look just like that backdrop…. but it’s carpeted.

      Also, I wish that you had been kidding when you said that the glasses kid looked good an you were envious.

          And then a business shirt with the collar buttoned sans tie!  As a man around Kevin’s age, I’d rather show up in Dot’s ensemble, but I guess that speaks to my lack of daring in regards to fashion.

      I love the younger ladies and their colors: pretty, bold, perfectly suited to them. Even with the awkward clashing, that pattern looks great on Jayma Mays, and I’m impressed because holy cow would it look terrible on me.

      Chord Overstreet’s outfit may be tired, but it looks good on him, and damn if the boy isn’t cute. Matthew Morrison also looks good, and major props to Kevin McHale, even if I don’t love it and, yeah, the gold chain is ridiculous.

          But that’s part of the challenge of doing make-up on an Asian woman — you have to know how to apply it so as not to make her look ridiculous when she smiles, particularly one who has smallish eyes like Jenna.  You really can’t do the same eye make-up as you would on a white woman.

I’m not sure I like the top of Jayma’s outfit even without the awful backdrop. Lea wins the “chile please!” award yet again.

        Well, first and foremost, I don’t care how she’s shaped she does have a waist — if she didn’t, her movement would be severely hampered. 

        I’d go with a great wrap sweater to give her more of a waist and fabulous pant, with a very low-heeled wedge.  Also, while this is generally considered counter-intuitive for large women, making her shoulder and hip look slightly wider will give her a more proportionate shape — I do that with a girlfriend of mine all the time.  She’s a big girl with a more straight up-and-down build, and we deliberately emphasize her hip and shoulder all the time — it’s not about making you look smaller or larger but rather making your proportions work better.  It’s better to be a shapely 20 than a smaller, less proportionate size.

        Any of my analogies for Dot would get me in trouble – so let’s just say that this is like playing to the very worst in stereotypes.   

        A former co-worker is kind “nerdy” and shops at thrift stores and likes old Lands End and Holiday sweaters and even she’d never be caught dead at any kind of event dressed like this.

      Such a wide array of hits (Chord, Mark, Jayma) and misses (Corey, Corey, Corey). Seriously, my gasp of horror was louder for Corey than for Dot. He made an effort and failed miserably while she didn’t make an effort at all. Somehow his offense seems worse to me.

      Corey Monteith- Douche.  Always looks like he is leaving a bar after a few drinks and a long day at the office
      Jenna Ushkowitz-  Always seems off, and always a short dress
      Kevin McHale-  Always trying to show how different he is, random pairings
      Lea Michelle-  “slit up to the c*it”?  You can count on it. Always.

        For Jane, I’d keep her in the suits — she clearly likes them and feels comfortable in them, so I have no beef with that.  But the jacket shouldn’t come off the same rack as Corey’s: shorten the length, bring in the waist and look for some classic touches that show it’s a woman’s jacket not unisex.  (Here’s a hint: anything that says unisex is best avoided)  The trousers should likewise be tailored.  A straight leg, flat front, IN THE CORRECT SIZE!  Every bit as comfortable but far more flattering.  I’d run a tuxedo stripe up them as well — little more interesting and it plays on the masculine as feminine thing.  Plus she’s got long legs and looking longer is never a bad idea.  I’d go with a simple silk blouse or camisole under the jacket.

      Lea Michele looks like she’s swimming in that dress–it’s pool colored too.

      Poor Matthew Morrison, he’s never going to be allowed to wear a vest again–but he looks cute here.

      Jane likes her suits, so I’d have thought she’d have a whole wardrobe of ones that *fit.*  She seems to veer between suits and poofy ball-gowns.  I wish she’d wear some sort of elegant column, or get a dressy evening top under her suits.

      Love Kevin–not the outfit, just the fact that he wears such outfits.

      I wants someone to pull Jayma out of the backdrop–she often wears interesting stuff.

      Gay Frodo–Bwah!

      Oh Dot . . . I get that clothes are not her thing, but how about some well-fitting dress slacks and some sort of elegant, interesting tunic?  Same level of comfort, same comfortable silhouette, but rising to the occasion.  I think the capable Glee costume department should find/create an evening ensemble for Dot.  She’s tall and broad-shouldered–it would not be that hard to find an outfit that worked for her.

      Ha! And the pose is cracking me up and making me shake my head. I bet she still practices her poses in the mirror for a half hour every day.

      Cory always looks like his mother dressed him in his clothes from junior high.
      I think Chris looks adorable, even if he’s totally predictable.
      I would love Jayma’s dress if not for the weird thing on the bodice. Way to ruin a great dress.
      Chord Overstreet carries off that under-25 uniform better than most.
      Mark looks every bit the 40 year old man that he is.
      Jenna is cute as a button, but she looks unfinished, like she forgot her pants or something.
      Dot Marie Jones: words fail me.
      Kevin: Ditto.
      Jane has been looking good of late, but she’s made a step back here.
      Lea: Oh, cripes, I really try to cut her some slack, but I just can’t with this. It’s not even the dress. She’s just so ridiculous. It’s like she should be saying “boop-boop-e-doop” in a little girl voice.

      But Lea looks classy for a change!  I love Jenna’s necklace and the dolman-sleeved dress is a great idea, just…not…that … (shiny/frumpy/weirdly-colored) dress.  Chord remains on his vacation in Bieberland.  Suits him, tho’.  I like Mark Salling’s eyeliner.  More dudes should wear eyeliner.  It’s very 80s, in a good way.

      Can’t help but feel Dot Jones called Jane Lynch for advice. “Are jeans okay?” “Sure, if you dress it up a bit.” “If you’re wearing jeans, I’ll wear jeans.” “Okay, I’m wearing jeans.” (later, at the event) “You didn’t tell me you were wearing a jacket!!!”

      Don’t love the Gay Frodo look, but Chris Colfer just looks so pleasant
      and happy. Matt Morrison (esp. his hair) looks surprisingly good.  And
      not so much like a dick as usual.

      chord overstreeet makes me feel like a dirty old woman. and even though it’s a little extravagant, I really like the blue dress rachel is wearing. but my absolute favorite is the totally casual, going-to-target-on-saturday-morning, jeans and skechers look. I don’t know why but I really love that she chose to wear that to an event.
