A beautiful Lea Michele showed some Christmas cheer in New York City tonight.
The Glee actress attended the L’Oreal Paris’ Women of Worth event at The Pierre in The Big Apple, wearing a bright red, lace Dolce & Gabbana dress. Lea was all smiles for the cameras on the red carpet, and held a sign that stated her Woman of Worth is her mom, who was also her date for the night—awww!
“Thank you @LOrealParisUSA for the most incredible and inspiring night. I’m so beyond proud to be a part of the L’Oreal family,” she tweeted, followed with, “And what a joy to get to meet & honor @LaurensKids tonight.. She is the most amazing woman..
Earlier today, the 27-year-old posted, “So honored to be tonight’s ambassador for @LOrealParisUSA
#WomenOfWorth event.. It’s going to be an amazing night!”
Michele also shared a photo of her quote that was on display at the event, which read, “I’m proud to be part of this movement that honors amazing women and by doing so, helps to motivate others to take action.”
The brunette beauty officially announced that she was the face of L’Oréal Paris in September 2012. “The rumors are true! So excited to be the new L’Oreal Paris Brand spokesperson!” the Glee star tweeted. “This is such an amazing honor!” she added. “Im so happy and excited and thrilled to be a part of the @LOrealParisUSA family!”
L’Oréal Paris USA president Karen T. Fondu said in a statement that the actress is “a beautiful woman inside and out” and “truly exemplifies our brand philosophy, ‘Because You’re Worth It.’”
And we’d have to agree.

Lea Michele is shooting her first music video for her upcoming album!
And she made sure to give fans a sneak peek of the set before the production kicked off Sunday.
“SO EXCITED SHOOTING MY VERY FIRST MUSIC VIDEO TODAY FOR THE FIRST ALBUM SINGLE!,” she tweeted, along with a couple of photos of scenes from the set.
The 27-year-old Glee star has yet to reveal when her album will be released, but she did recently dish to Elle regarding a song she recorded about Cory Monteith that will be on it called “You’re Mine.”
“The album was done, and the label said, ‘Do you want to add anything?’ I was like, ‘I might regret it if I don’t,’” Michele told the mag.
“It makes me so happy, this song,” she continued. “It makes me think so much of Cory. It was ours. When I think if him, I play this.”
Are you excited for Lea’s album?

Big thanks to Penelope for the scans!
On her personal style:
“I would say it’s very relaxed and simple: jeans, flats and a leather jacket. Lately, I have mixed the Californian style with the dark side of New York. I would wear black every day if I could. For red carpets I love experimenting.”
On her fave basic pieces:
“Definitely my Fiorentini + Baker motorcycle boots and myGivenchy bag.”
On her role as a L’Oreal spokesmodel:
“I had been a fan of L’Oreal since I was a little girl. I remember I had so many products in my house and everyone knew how important it was for me to work with them. Honestly, I am a real fan of their cosmetics, so being part of the L’Oreal family is amazing. It’s so nice to be part of a company that you truly believe in, so this way you can tell people how much you love their products.”
On her fave designers:
“I have so many favorite designers: Zac Posen, Oscar de la Renta, Versace and Stella McCartney.”
On her fashion icons:
“I think that is one of the hardest questions because they are so many, but I have always looked up to Penelope Cruz, she always looks beautiful, classy and sophisticated. I probably would say that she is one of the most beautiful women in the world.”
