How Chris Colfer’s ‘Glee’ character affords to dress so well

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: In the current issue of ‘TV Guide,’ a reader wondered of ‘Glee’s’ Kurt Hummel could really afford all of his fashionable outfits since he is from a struggling middle class family.

Columnist Ingela Ratledge writes that in a recent episode, openly gay Kurt (played by Chris Colfer) was shown rocking a $435 shirt and a $260 silk scarf by designer Alexander McQueen – not exactly the kind of duds that are common for a mechanic’s kid from Lima, Ohio.

How does he pull it off?

‘TV Guide’ asked NYC stylist Joseph Williamson who says that the style-savvy high-schooler would likely have a wardrobe that mixes couture splurges with cheaper (but still trendy) togs. “When you’re a fashionista, clothes are what you spend all your available cash on,” Williamson said.

    I’d also like to pointed out that, in the series, Kurt’s dad actually owns the repair shop where he works. That means that while Kurt’s family is blue-coller, it’s not really operating on a working class income. Owning your own auto repair shop can bring in some cash, especially if it’s a good one.
