Lea Michele In Roberto Cavalli – The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Lea Michele In Roberto Cavalli - The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Lea Michele made a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’, which was taped at the Rockefeller Center on Tuesday (March 4) in New York City.

The ‘Glee’ actress was on the show to promote her new album ‘Louder’ and performed her single ‘Cannonball’.

Having watched the show, I can say that I wasn’t a fan of the song or the dress. Especially the dress.

The black-and-white patterned Roberto Cavalli mini dress felt very dated to me. Like something JLo would’ve worn while promoting ‘On The 6? in 1999.

I would’ve loved to have seen her in something funkier to appeal to her young fan base.

Silver sandals and a dark manicure rounded out her look.

Lea Michele for Teen Vogue March 2014

lea-michele-01

Lea Michele graces the March 2014 issue of Teen Vogue looking soft and pretty, wearing a white eyelet frock with her long locks piled up into a loose bun.

The ‘Glee’ starlet talks to the magazine about her debut album ‘Louder’, and how boyfriend Cory Monteith inspired her to pursue a music career before his untimely death.

On her upcoming album: “During Glee, I felt like I was scratching that itch of being an artist. I was at a great place in my life and I was so unbelievably happy—my relationship with Cory [Monteith] made me feel like I could reach for the stars and more. So I was like, ‘I’m going to challenge myself and do this record now.’ It’s obviously pop, but I think it shows me off as a singer.”

On Cory’s favourite song from her upcoming album ‘Louder': “He was such a fan, you don’t understand. He would be like, ‘You’re going to be a pop star! What are we going to do? Are we going to, like, go on the road?’ He would say, ‘This is going to be big!’ And I’d be like, ‘I don’t know.’ He heard every song and gave me his notes on everything. He loved ‘Battlefield’. I’m getting chills thinking about it. I would say ‘Burn with You’ was his favourite. He came into the studio that day.”

On where she got strength after Cory’s death: “I somehow feel the insane love Cory and I had for each other morphed into this strength that I have right now. There’s just something about knowing he’s watching everything I’m doing and feeling like I have to do everything now not just for me but for him. I also have a safety net below me—if I fall or if it’s too much, my friends and family will be there to catch me.”

Celebrities Love…Coach’s ‘The Borough’ Bag

Celebrities Love Coach's 'The Borough' BagThe latest accessory on the celebrity set’s arms has big shoes to fill. Inspired by New York City and its five boroughs, Coach’s ‘The Borough’ bag delivers on its lofty Big Apple-influenced name. As iconic as the place it represents, the sleekly versatile tote is hot yet oh-so-cool, downtown and uptown, and subtle but sharp.

Jessica Alba recently topped off her sidewalk-chic ensemble with the oxblood-coloured ‘Borough.’ Of course, Sarah Jessica Parker has been carrying this NYC-inspired bag, putting an elegant edge on her modish-mommy, jeans-and-tee look with one in jade green. Lea Michele went for the classic black ‘Borough,’ which only added more punch to her hat, shades and combat boots.

Also making the Coach bag a must-have of the moment is a laundry list of trendsetters, including Karlie Kloss, Poppy Delevingne, Liu Wen, Drew Barrymore and Freida Pinto.

Effortlessly transitioning from day to night, the bag can pump up any street-style look with its richly hued polished calfskin, pebbled leather and leopard varieties, along with large and mini versions.

No wonder everyone’s boasting ‘The Borough’ by their side.

Lea Michele In Dolce & Gabbana – L’Oreal Paris Women of Worth 2013

Lea Michele In Dolce & Gabbana - L'Oreal Paris Women of Worth 2013

Lea Michele attended the L’Oreal Paris Women of Worth 2013 event held at The Pierre Hotel in New York City yesterday evening as an ambassador of the brand.

The actress brought a bit of festive cheer to the red carpet, wearing a Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 long-sleeved signature red lace dress embellished with tonal Swarovski crystals, mostly around the midriff, which I can imagine glistened from every angle.

With the hair and makeup kept subtle and simple, she added black Christian Louboutin sky-high heels and small stud earrings, allowing the dress to take centre stage.

Lea Michele for Elle US December 2013

Lea Michele strikes a pose on the Elle US December 2013 cover wearing a Ralph Lauren jacket, Frame Denim jeans and a selection of vintage Chanel belts.

She was living her dream as Glee’s resident drama queen, dating the quarterback on-screen and off. Then, Cory Monteith’s tragic death shattered her world.

The Glee star opens up to Elle about love, mourning through music, and finding strength in Cory’s legacy.

On how she’s handling Cory Monteith’s death: “I never thought I would be in this position in my whole life. Now that I am in this position, you can choose to rise, and that’s what I’m going to try to do. I know that Cory would want nothing more than for me to take this situation and use it to help people.”

On relying on friend Kate Hudson during the difficult time after Monteith’s passing: “I called [Kate Hudson] and said, ‘I don’t know where I’m going to go because my house is swarmed [with reporters].’ She was like, ‘Oh, you’re going to stay at my house.’ Like it was nothing. No one knew I was there. I’ll never really be able to thank her, truly, for what she did for me.”

On taking time to heal: “It’s very hard. And you have to be very strong to come out of this alive, but I think by doing the best for myself, by showing that you don’t have to lose yourself, maybe someone else will feel some sort of strength or comfort.”

On why she never expected her career in television to take off: “I was told my whole life I would never do television because I was too ethnic. I was 100 percent focused and ready to be the best in the world [of Broadway] I was in.”
