Anna Wintour to help out on Glee *scream!*

02 August 2012 by

What’s this? Glee’s going seriously fashwan! First we heard that Sarah Jessica Parker was said to have snapped up a recurring role on the upcoming fourth series of the teen musical show. Then, just as we were wondering how the Sex and the City star would look in a Cheerio outfit, it was announced that the one and only Anna Wintour has signed up to help out with her styling.

Executive producer Ryan Murphy tweeted the news, saying, "Guess who's helping us with Sarah Jessica Parker's costumes on GLEE? The amazing Anna Wintour!" How’d that happen? Well it’s probably has been quite a big help to Murphy that Wintour’s daughter Bee Schaffer works for his production company, but hey, we’re not complaining…

In fact, we can’t wait to see La Wintour shake up the wholesome, all-American styling of the show. The end of season three saw the cast graduate from McKinley High and head off into the wide world. In the upcoming season, the fabulous Kurt, played by Chris Colfer, is rumoured to have snapped up a dream job as assistant to the editor of – played by SJP, which is where Ms. Wintour comes in.

Still no word as to whether Anna actually makes a cameo as herself (can you imagine?) but at the very least we’re hoping that Anna might model SJP’s work outfits on those of her own as the editor of the magazine. A little insight into how she accessorises in the office could always be of use. But what she’ll make of some of the outfits the cast wear to perform their musical numbers only remains to be seen. Sequins and jazz shoes as an A/W trend anyone?

The episode airs in the US on 13 September 2012. Bring. It. On. But until then, let's take a look at the last time we saw SJP singing. OK, aged six but still...
