“Glee” Season 2 Premiere – Lea Michele In Erdem

The first thing I said to myself when I saw Lea Michele’s wearing this Erdem Fall 2010 lace dress to the “Glee” Season 2 Premiere was “something’s missing”.

Side by side against the runway I realise it’s the belt….not the shirt.

Had Lea worn a belt and opted out of those Sergio Rossi pumps I think I would’ve really liked this look.

Alongside Jayma and Dianna, this look is very ‘meh’ and totally forgettable.

I just wanted to add that I really don’t like the JLo streaks nor the make-up.

    I think this look really ages her!

  • Sharon

    Normally I love retro dresses because they bring back fond memories of my youth, but this dress, as Lea wore it, is one even I don’t want back. The runway look is so much better.

  • Alina

    This photo just made my day. She tried to look sexy and flirty but she failed.

    • manja

      O MY she looks lie a drag queen

  • Ally

    Has anyone else noticed that when she is nominated for an award that is coming up she constantly looks flawless, but as soon as the award show passes she slips back into the 40 yr old look? It is so odd. Almost makes me wonder if she has a different stylist for award season.

    • Fashion Critic

      fair point

  • Ayesha

    lousy hair and makeup,boring dress.

  • Marvel

    I cant beleive she wore this. I really thought she was back on track but then she wears this. Im her biggest fan but this is a complete car crash. The dress is nice enough but hair, make-up, tan and shoes all ruin it. Hopefuly on her next red carpet outing she erases this image out of my mind

  • Jeremy

    I believe Lea dressed herself this time. She always does well on dramatic gowns from Valli, Oscar or Zac Posen. An edgier house like Erdem requires a lot of quirkiness-which is something Lea apparently doesn’t need. And I never get why she has to pose (and act) like JLo in every freaking picture. She has something JLo can never have: talent.

  • mol

    You are so right on every point – hair, makeup, belt lacking. Lea’s often one of my favorites, but lately she’s been batting zero.

  • Ev

    There is something absolutely wrong with her hair and makeup, because they age her tremendously!
    Overall FC, you put it absolutely write – this look is so forgettable, and not season premiere worthy.

    • Ev

      Oops, I meant “absolutely RIGHT”. Sorry 🙂

  • Orchee

    This dress sort of/kind of reminds me of the Proenza Schouler Chloe Sevigny wore brilliantly a while back. Neither Lea nor the Erdem matches up.

    • Fashion Critic

      oh yes it is very much like the Proenza Schouler dress.

    • Hannah

      That is EXACTLY waht I thought when I saw it. I really dont like the hair and makeup, and the dress’s background is black on the runway,a nd lighter on Lea, which I don’t like. She really missed a great opportunity with this dress.

  • 2c

    oh FC u never cease to crack me up

    I think the ting that turns me off the most is hair and make-up. This feels like a return to Lea’s wild fashion stage and it’s because of the streaks in her hair and overdone makeup. Can you say drag queen?

    The dress needed a belt not so much to give Lea shape because I do like the shape it gives her, but for height. Lea’s a shrimp so a belt might’ve made her appear taller. The shoes are…unimaginative.
