The singing and dancing students of McKinely High were feeling plenty of school spirit last night for their big man on campus. Ryan Murphy, creator of “Glee,” was honored at the Paley Center with an Icon Award for… well, being iconic, basically? Which he is! And to show their support, pretty much every major player from Lima, Ohio, came out to help celebrate the achievement of their paterfamilias.
Lea Michele, in a sexy sheer gown with lace bustier top, enjoyed some snuggly photo ops with boyfriend Cory Monteith on the red carpet; Jenna Ushkowitz kept cozy with a white blazer over her black dress; and Jayma Mays went for a fun, fresh, high-contrast look in a pencil dress with a melon-hued Mondrian pattern.
And the boys were just as stylish: Chord Overstreet sported floppy hair and an open collar, while Chris Colfer and Kevin McHale went for patterned shirts. Chris paired his suit with a casual black plaid button-down; Kevin went a step further with a contrast-collared number in competing floral prints. And the evening’s star (Ryan, duh!), never one to dress down, was fresh and fruity in a light lemon-colored suit, blue shirt, and minty green tie.
What do you think of everyone’s looks from last night’s Paley shindig?
