25-year-old Lea Michele looked stunning in a crystal embroidered plunging neck gown by Valentino with a flounce hem skirt. You can easily get washed out with such a pale shade, but I think it looked amazing on Lea; it was certainly one of her better red carpet looks. My only qualm is that the neckline was so open, I feel like I saw more than I should at the bust. Rumor has it that Lea actually “popped out” of the dress at one point on the carpet.
I’m loving that her bangs finally grew out and I could appreciate her side-parted long luscious brunette wavy hairstyle. The part allowed for me to also get a glimpse of her Neil Lane diamond stud earrings.
Lea, who spent most of her time on the black carpet posing with co-star Ashton Kutcher, finished off her ensemble with crystal encrusted “Anna” strass sandals by Christian Louboutin.
“New Year’s Eve” opens in theaters on Friday, December 9th.
