Chris Colfer doesn’t want to disappoint his fans but unlike the lovable and fashionably adventurous character Kurt he plays on Fox’s hit show Glee, he won’t be caught parading around town in a translucent Dolce and Gabbana raincoat. It’s way more likely you’ll spot him shopping at the Beverly Center, enjoying some of his favorite stores. “I don’t have a lot of preference when it comes to designers but I love Banana Republic, Express, and Ben Sherman.”  Chris insists that Kurt’s wardrobe definitely helps him get into the role. “Kurt’s clothes are 25 to 30 percent of his character. I’m much more of a T-shirt and jeans kind of guy but I try to keep my fashion a notch above casual.  The wildest thing I have in my closet is a pair of pink suspenders. I don’t even remember where they came from!” Chris may not have a lot of fashion rules but if he were the fashion police, rolling up your jeans and wearing shoes with no socks wouldcost you a heavy fine.

What’s the hardest thing Chris has had to wear while playing Kurt?  A Gucci sweater!  “We were singing and dancing all day. I swear I lost 10 pounds in that thing!” Chris is very into matching and almost always wears blue. “Sometimes I wear green or red to try to mix it up, but blue is my favorite color.” He’s very excited about fall fashions and loves scarves and jackets. He has an impressive collection of wristbands, or as he admitted adorably, “I won’t lie, they’re bracelets.” He wears them every day, along with his favorite pair of Banana Boat boots. “They’re very Industrial Revolution-esque.”
When he’s not shooting on the Glee set, he’s going out with friends, watching movies, or catching up on sleep. Many of the cast members go out for sushi together once or twice a week. Ocassionally, Chris may have to indulge a group of screaming girls in an elevator, asking for autographs and pictures but with the success and growing popularity of the show and Chris’ immense talent and charming personality, those types of interactions are sure to be increasing. Chris may be more of a jeans and T-shirt kind of guy but his sense of humor and generosity of spirit definitely make him way more than a notch above casual.
Be sure to check out Glee: The Music, Volume One, available now to listen to all your favorite songs from the show. You can even pre-order Glee: The Music, Volume Two.  If you haven’t seen Glee, catch up on and of course don’t miss it Wednesday nights on Fox.

    Hey Chris and!

    I love this article! I laughed at the part where admits that his wristbands are bracelets. Good stuff! I want Glee to come to Canada, more specifically Ontario; Toronto or Cobourg would be nice. Love you both!

    Kisses and Hugs, Emmy <3

    Wow, Chris is really defying gravity here, and he looks absolutely gorgeous! (which he always do, sadly for our poor fangirl hearts)

    Keep up the good work! Your fame has spread farther more than you think, even here across Asia. ♥

    Hmm, I hope I can still catch this issue in the bookstores.. Or well, hope that they’re selling it! :O

    I am totally have a crush on Chris right now. I mean I watch Glee just to see him, not any other character. I think that he should play the main role in Glee, not Rachel (I don’t know, I think Rachel is terribly selfish and threateningly competitive). I want to see him in more TV show, after Glee….

    Love you so much, Chris. You are my hero…

    Do you realize that when Chris don’t smile, he look like a real model, very manly and attractive. When he smile, he has a boyish facial which is amazingly cute and funny. I look every facial expression of this guy. I hope I can meet him some day. Chris, pls come to Hong Kong. We are waiting for you

      Yeah, good luck with that. He tried, for appearances sake, for his father. He just can’t. It’ll never happen, and honestly, shouldn’t. He should stay true to himself, and what makes him happy. Thank you, Ryan Murphy, for a truly inspiring and enjoyable character.
