The third annual Fashion’s Night Out will involve its usual bevy of models, designers, and celebrities, but this time stars of the hit show Glee will be there to help you shop. Cast members including Lea Michele, Diana Agron, Corey Monteith, Chris Colfer, and Darren Criss have been selected as spokespeople to appear in stores from New York to Los Angeles.
The brainchild of Anna Wintour, the Sept. 8 initiative is a global retail event in which participating stores offer special products, discounts, and extended hours. This year, e-commerce sites such as Net-a-Porter and Shopbop will make their debut alongside well-established brands (last year’s list boasted Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, and Gucci, among others).
According to Page Six, Bee Shaffer had a hand in the collaboration. The Vogue editor’s daughter, who is an intern at Glee creator Ryan Murphy’s production company, came up with the idea to involve the show.
Judging by previous years’ antics, we wouldn’t be surprised if the cast got swept up in the excitement. Perhaps they’ll even burst into song (like Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler, and Oscar de la Renta) or dance (with Alexander Wang and his supermodel posse in the windows of his store). Hopefully there won’t be any crazy burglaries, as in the case of Ben Sherman.
What is for sure is that there will be plenty of entertainment, whether it’s sartorial shenanigans or celebrity sightings. If you’re a fun-loving fashionista, this is an extravaganza you won’t want to miss.
