Petite celebrity 5’1″ Lea Michele graces the January issue of Marie Claire. The 26-year-old actress looked stunning for the risque shoot. She was wearing designer items such as Eres hotpants and a Marchesa jacket for the Yu Tsai shot front page, while opening up about everything from how “GLEE” has changed her life to her nine tattoos.
Michele continuously tries to break away from those ties through her photo shoots in a variety of magazines. The most recent example is Marie Claire.
Michele took a page out of the Kim Kardashian book of style, opting for dramatic smoky eyes and a skimpy, sexy outfit.
In addition to debuting her new look, Michele discusses some slightly NSFW material (or, at least, not safe for Glee) surrounding her seemingly enhanced chest. Turns out, Rachel Berry’s alter ego has always been, well, busty and made an executive decision to start showing off the girls.
“These babies are great,” she says. “They were nervous to make an appearance but feel they’ve earned their place…They definitely rose to the occasion, so I’m going to continue to give them more opportunities.”
