Ever wanted to know, who Alex Newell's fashion icon was? The answer is somewhere in the text below (Yes, waaaaay waaaaay down below)! Remember how Alex Newell was only a contestant on The Glee Project back in the day? And then when he was supposed to be on Glee for only two episodes? Well he now is a “recurring permanent role” and not just for any role, but the first transgender teen on national TV. Say whaaaat? We all adore him because of is fabulousness, of course; however, we don't know much about him. This is about to change; he did a very revealing interview with Frontiers. He explains that Glee changed his life completely after he had auditioned on Myspace on an open call. He also said that he has worked on his acting career since the age of thirteen. It was his dream to act and sing and now he gets to do this for his job. The fact that he is playing a transgender was never an obstacle, really, because it is now part of his everyday life. He also appreciates the respones he was given from his transgender community, which have been “positive and greatful.” I am not going to summarize Alex Newell's answer on when he started to get into fashion, because every different word would absolutely disown the statement's meaning. Read his words to understand what I am trying to say: Oh my goodness, I love clothes. I love shoes. I love everything. I think my mother did the overkill. I remember when I was in the second grade, and we had to write books about what our life was. I had a whole chapter of how we went shopping and I would be in the mall for hours and hours. We had to draw pictures of our houses, and I drew a detailed map of the mall, where every store was, what the name of it was, even what their logo was. It was absolutely ridiculous. I loved my name brands and feeling the rush of putting on a new pair of jeans. I think that’s where my love of clothes and fashion comes from. I just love trying new and exciting things to see what to do. I love playing with androgyny. It’s fun, and you don’t see too much of it. I’m always trying to think outside the box and do it with a traditional high-fashion sense. To answer the first question: Alex Newell's fashion icon is, drumroll please...André Leon Talley, Michael Costello and Anthony Williams. I love all of them so much, I can't even! If you do not know who they are, check them out on Google! They all have done amazing work, trust me! If you don't want to read the whole interview, I cannot help you. One piece of advice though: READ IT! Because Alex Newell, and his answers, are fabulous! [gallery ids="37752,37751"]
