Alex Newell From ‘Glee,’ Brings His Unique Fashion Flare to the GLAAD Media Awards Carpet

Alex Newell was as fierce and sensational as his Glee alter-ego, Unique, on the red carpet at the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards. The spunky actor spoke to us about his fabulous look and added a few words of advice.

The Glee Project alumnus wore a black tuxedo that was embellished with zippers all around the edges along with a shiny bow-tie on his lapel. His bold look was completed with a plum toned suede cravat (as he points out, not to be confused with an ascot).


In daring to be different, Newell also gave us some serious “Beyoncé eyes”–meaning glimmering, double shaded lids. The secret to his perfect make-up is using RCMA, as he did tonight.

Moving onto the excitement of GLAAD’s event, Newell confessed he wanted to meet President Bill Clinton. “Let me see him,” added Alex.

On a more enlightening note, Alex had some few words of encouragement “don’t worry about what anybody else has to say about you.” Preach!
