As part of their role as ambassadors for this year's Fashion's Night Out, the cast of Glee appears in Vogue's September issue wearing FNO apparel. They all seem to be playing to character: Lea Michele's front and center posing like a true diva, Mark Salling's working a sulky pucker toward the back, and Darren Criss is just adorable, because Blaine wouldn't be anything but adorable.
But both Amber Riley, who plays Mercedes, and Naya Rivera, who plays Santana, are conspicuously missing in the lead photo, with no mention of them in the accompanying article, either. A Vogue rep tells us that the whole cast was asked to be involved, but that Amber and Naya's "individual scheduling issues" prevented them from making the shoot, which seems like a definite missed opportunity, because a spread in Vogue is surely a guaranteed popularity boost at McKinley High.
(Also, because this is a typical Sue Sylvester move, Jane Lynch beat them all into the magazine with a feature in last month's "Age" issue.)
