In Glee World, A Vogue Internship Is A Glamorous Fairytale
If only real life were a bit more like Glee, no one would be suing anyone for labor violations in the internship world.
As you probably guessed from Wednesday’s preview clip, everyone’s favorite Broadway-loving fashionisto Kurt has started interning for Isabelle Wright aka Sarah Jessica Parker at Vogue.com. From day one she leans on him for support, inviting him to lead the discussion at meetings, and revealing her insecurities about her career following a failed stint as a fashion designer.
Vogue helped style Parker for her role, kitting the actress out in wares from designers like Prabal Gurung, Altuzarra, and Fendi. In the interview scene, she wears the Belstaff “Avebury” dress — a look that was definitely far more Carine than Carrie.
But while the wardrobe was all Vogue, the action was all Glee. Kurt is struck with the brilliant idea one night (about a week into his internship, as far as we could tell) to sneak into the glossy’s fabled closet and give roommate Rachel a makeover. So much for that new Condé rule that intern’s swipe keys won’t work after 7PM, eh? Or that for the closet to be devoid by haggard fashion assistants it would have to be well past midnight. Or….well, you get the picture.
SJP returns and is (of course!) overjoyed that her lowly intern has taken it upon himself to raid the stash of Chanel so that his roommate can look glam for her dance class. So overjoyed, in fact, that she bursts into a lively rendition of “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile” from Annie while Rachel struts her stuff in the mirror and Kurt films the whole makeover montage. The video finds its way into Anna Wintour‘s hands, and rather than have him blackballed from every industry in NYC, she deems it “great” and uses the idea for the magazine — giving Kurt full credit, of course.
Best. Internship. Ever.
