Just in case the gang from ‘Glee’ hadn’t been seen on enough red carpets in recent months, the Fox show celebrated the impending kickoff of its second season Tuesday night with a party at the Studios at Paramount.

Diana Agron, Jayma Mays, Lea Michele and Naya Rivera rocked some frocks on arrival, while costars Jane Lynch, Cory Monteith and Mark Salling dressed it down a bit. On the nerd chic front: Kevin McHale and Mike O’Malley (dad to Chris Colfer‘s character, Kurt), one sporting a bow tie and the other topped with a cap.


Also on hand: Jenna Ushkowitz, Amber Riley, Heather Morris, Iqbal Theba, Harry Shum Jr., Jessalyn Gilsig, Josh Sussman and Romy Rosemont, who plays Finn’s mom. Click the picture of rowdy grown-ups Matthew Morrison and John Stamos, left, to launch a gallery of arrival pictures.

The series is back Sept. 21 with an episode Rolling Stone says will feature ...
