How the Ladies of 'Glee' Are Updating Their Looks for Season 4

Lea Michele‘s Glee character, Rachel Berry, has not only graduated on to college, but it sounds like her style has grown up as well.

“There may or may not be a little makeover happening,” Michele, whose Rachel is off to the New York Academy of Dramatic Arts, hinted to PEOPLE on Wednesday at the FOX show’s season 4 premiere in L.A. “We do have Sarah Jessica Parker on our show this season, so it would only be right.”

It’s an exciting upgrade for the star, who seemingly didn’t relate to Rachel’s high school style.

“I’m very happy,” she said. “Now I can leave work and keep my hair and makeup and actually want to wear my clothes out to dinner and stuff like that.”

A similar change is happening for Jenna Ushkowitz’s Tina Cohen-Chang, who’s staying behind in Ohio for her senior year of high school.

“She gets to wear bangs this year, and she … matures,” the actress shared. “We finessed her. She went from the goth and all the layers and corsets to black dresses, and then we went into color.”

Now, “Tina is definitely [into] color, short, retro dresses. Definitely more flats … and no more knee socks,” Ushkowitz said. Designer labels, too. “She used to wear a lot of vintage things, and I love that [the costume designers] have started to incorporate Marc Jacobs and more fashion-forward things [into her wardrobe].” Tell us: Did you watch the Glee premiere last night? Did you notice a change in the characters’ styles?

Oh, yeah, Jenna, high school seniors in Lima, Ohio regularly wear Marc Jacobs. And where have YOU been these last few years???

I still watch, but nothing beats the first season. I miss the Terri, Will, Emma triangle, now the side stories are just lame. Still like the musical numbers though…

Guest on

In my opinion, Sons of Anarchy takes place in Charming.

Charles U Farley on

In my opinion, Prince Charming eats Frosted Lucky Charms.

Whatever on

Enough with the “in my opinion” please. We get it…

I was not impressed with the first episode.
Now that most of my favorite characters are gone, I will probably not watch the show anymore.

Rave on

…How does that make sense to have a girl from Lima, Ohio wear Marc Jacobs?

Why does being “fashion forward” mean wearing expensive labels? Cant you look good and be fashionable on a regular budget? My opinion is yes. Most high schoolers aren’t wearing Mark Jacobs. I think keeping the originality was an important part of these characters.
