Lea Michele covers Marie Claire Mexico's August issue in a photo taken before her boyfriend Cory Monteith was tragically found dead in Canada.
Cory even paid a visit to the set and watched the entire photo shoot, giving his girlfriend his full support. According to reports from on set, he was in "great spirits" and graciously obliged various photo requests from fans!
Wearing a cleavage-baring blazer and black panties, Lea looks exactly like the fierce, strong goddess that she is on the front of the mag.
The Glee star also talks about fashion and beauty with the mag.
Check out some HIGHlights…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
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 my Givenchy 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."
Beautiful, classy, sophisticated — we'd say the same of Lea!
