Lea Michele is similar to her sometimes Glee co-star Gwyneth Paltrow in that people either love her or hate her. Despite suffering personal tragedy after the death of her longtime love Cory Monteith, the actress and singer barely skipped a beat.
Michele admirably continued filming Glee almost immediately after her loss and her first solo album Louder goes on sale on March 4. She also happens to have a book coming out in May, so she is clearly keeping busy. It looks as though her last order of business is shedding her goody-goody Rachel Berry image. Obviously the best person to call would be fashion’s favorite creeper, Terry Richardson.
Michele posed in a blue Vionnet bodysuit and other barely-there garments, with her hips jutted and legs spread in typical Terry style, for V Magazine. The spread is far from groundbreaking, but Michele has a pretty Studio 54 look to her. (Maybe it’s an ode to Glee‘s disco themed 100th episode?) Despite the fact that she flashes her toned derrière pretty regularly on Instagram, she maintains that she is so boring her friends think she acts borderline elderly.
“My friends call me Grandma, but, like, Grandma’s killing it right now. I’m pretty sure Grandma nailed it in a half-naked Terry Richardson shoot, okay?” Michele says in the accompanying interview with Mary H.K. Choi. “So I’m fine with it. I just do my thing. I do what’s best for me. That’s it.”
Grandma is also referring to herself in the third person, but we are glad to see she’s not lacking in the self-confidence department or anything like that. The spring issue of V magazine hits the newsstands on Feb. 27.
