Behind The Scenes: Glee‘s Dijon Talton, Mark Salling And Kevin McHale
This past Sunday afternoon, I was asked to style Dijon Talton, who plays Matt Rutherford on the hit Fox TV show Glee.
With less than 24 hours to pull a dope head-to-toe look together for Dijon to wear at the huge FOX Upfront party, I hit up our trusty friends at GoldSpun/GodSpeed, as well as Scotch & Soda.
Our Videographer, Jenny Wu, came along to help, joining me on the trek to the Upper West Side with all of Dijon’s gear. We walked into a hotel suite where other Glee cast members were also getting their wardrobe/hair/makeup done.
After having Dijon try on a few options, we put together a young, casual-yet-polished look with a black blazer by Scotch & Soda, a gray short-sleeve button down, raw skinny jeans by GoldSpun, and the Up-Speed High boots by GodSpeed.
Check out a few behind-the-scenes pics, including Mark Salling (who plays Noah “Puck” Puckerman) and Kevin McHale (who plays Artie Abrams):
Jenny Wu had to school Kevin McHale on how to tie his necktie! Nice job.
A close up shot of Dijon’s GodSpeed boots, which we later learned got a lot of love from the press on the red carpet!
The finished product:
The cast just launched a four-city tour on May 15th in Arizona, while new episodes hit FOX simultaneously. Glee has reportedly drawn huge names like Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez and Justin Bieber, who are all expressing interest in playing roles during the fall season.
We would like to say congratulations to Dijon, who will have his first speaking roles in upcoming episodes!
I will be interviewing the 20-year-old actor (and cousin to Meagan Good) shortly, and would love to know if you have any questions for him. Let me know by commenting on this post, and I will notify you if your question is picked.
