Lea Michele goes back to familiar ground for Elle's December issue, posing in a high school football field in a spread that can be interpreted as a bittersweet homage to Cory Monteith and Finn.
Dressed in a white Ralph Lauren jacket and Frame Denim jeans, Lea exudes determination and strength on the mag's cover thanks to her powerful stance and direct gaze into the camera.
Inside the spread, the Glee star continues to show off her inner strength in a Tom Ford quilted dress and seksi lace-up boots, and while posing next to a muscle car in a Derek Lam cropped sweatshirt and cut-out threeASFOUR jersey pants.
The fierceness is undeniable!
But our favorite shot has to be the one of the 27-year-old dressed in a blue Prabal Gurung jacket and Emilio Pucci denim cut-offs with a football helmet in her hand.
It just gives us all the feels!
Check out the full spread in the gallery (below)!
