Celebrity

Lea Michele Glams Up After an Emotional Week on Glee

Posted on

Though she was back in her Rachel Berry finest for last week’s heart-wrenching Glee episode, in her real life, Lea Michele is keeping busy (and keeping her glam squad busy) by showing off some super-sexy outfits for her next big project.

The star is back to work on her new solo album, and shared a behind-the-scenes look at what we’re guessing is the ensemble she’ll be wearing on the album’s cover: A white second-skin stunner with a ginormous stomach cutout (the Cheerios’ ab-baring outfits have nothing on that!). Behind her is some of Hollywood’s most A-list beauty and fashion talent — celebrity stylist Estée Stanley, hairstylist Mark Townsend, makeup artist Melanie Inglessis and manicurist Ashlie Johnson — referring to them as “Team LM” on Instagram.

She also shared an edgy shot of her posing in a pair of black high-waisted bloomers and a long-sleeve Hervé Léger by Max Azria crop top, which nabbed more than 125,000 “hearts” at last check.

“I’m so excited for u guys to hear my album. It’s so special to me. I’m so grateful for u all. Thank u for giving me so much love & support” she Tweeted.

It’s an uplifting, positive post from the actress, who friends say is doing as well as she can be these days. Last week, fans saw her grieve in Glee‘s Cory Monteith tribute episode, in which her character sang a tear-filled rendition of “Make You Feel My Love.” Monteith, 31, passed away in July from a toxic mix of heroin and alcohol.

“She really struggled,” a source close to Michele recently told PEOPLE. “It was hard to get up every morning. But now, she’s doing okay.”
