There’s a cute new addition to Lea Michele‘s furry family! Yesterday, the Glee actress gave her new dog Pearl a warm welcome by posting a sweet picture of her to Twitter. “Today I would like to introduce you to Pearl,” she wrote. “She’s 8 years old and is my new little love. Welcome, Pearl!” While we’re not yet sure of the breed, one thing is certain — Pearl is having no trouble adjusting to the star’s fabulous life. She’s already worked the camera at her first photo shoot with Michele, and seems to be getting along well with Lea’s tortoiseshell cat, Sheila — which has us wondering if Pearl will follow in the footsteps of her feline friend and start her own Twitter account! We sure wouldn’t mind seeing that cute face in our feed every day.

Chic should be Lea Michele‘s middle name, because anything the Glee actress wears is always a look to covet. The 27-year-old recently attended the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Glee junket, and in between grabbing lunch with co-stars Jane Lynch and Matthew Morrison at the Four Seasons Hotel in L.A., Michele stepped out in a tri-colored Fausto Puglisi dress with a yellow and lavender pleated flared skirt, paired with black Rupert Sanderson for Osman ankle-strap sandals. The actress finished her look with a must-have accessory: a black leather Donatienne envelope clutch that featured a lazer-cut fur accent. The Donatienne Megan clutch is available at donatiennehandbags.com for $325 and comes in blue, black, or black with a white heart-patterned fur accent.

Teen Choice Awards 2013: Lea Michele and the Glee Cast Remember Cory Monteith, Plus What Everyone WoreAug 12, 2013 @ 1:07 pm
Last night at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards, Lea Michele and the cast of Glee paid tribute to the late Cory Monteith, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house as Michele took the stage to dedicate her award to Monteith’s memory. “For all of you out there who loved and admired Cory as much as I did, I promise that with your love, we’re going to get through this together,” she said in her emotional speech. “Whether you knew him personally or just as Finn Hudson, Cory reached out and he became a part of all of our hearts — and that’s where he’ll stay forever, so thank you guys so much.” Such a fitting, heartfelt tribute. Kerry Washington, Selena Gomez, and Miley Cyrus were among the A-List attendees, lining the red carpet in fashion-forward ensembles. Click the photo to see what everyone wore to the star-studded event.
Cory Monteith, we will miss you. The 31-year-old Canadian actor passed away suddenly in Vancouver on Saturday, and sent fans around the world into a state of shock and grieving. He first charmed his way into our hearts as the lovable football player with a softer side Finn Hudson on Glee in 2009. “I wasn’t like Finn. I didn’t really go to school as much as he does,” he once told InStyle.com. “I cut a lot of class, so I’m glad things worked out as well as they did!” It was on that very set where he met his girlfriend, Lea Michele. A TV power couple since last January, they traveled the world together — even doing fun fashion things like stopping at a Versace runway show during Couture Fashion Week last summer — and became one of the most adorable duos of red carpet season. We can’t help but remember one of our favorite Cory Monteith moments, when the couple got ready for the SAG awards together in January. The actor told us, “Lea’s dress? It’s stunning. I am the luckiest man!” Cory, you are gone too soon.

Lea Michele helped celebrate the FEED USA and Target collaboration launch last night in New York City (the retailer’s first socially conscious design collab goes on sale this Sunday), where she played off of the Americana-esque setting by balancing her otherwise polished ensemble with a breezy tousled braid. “I wanted to do something different tonight, and I love the messy braid!” she told us. “It’s so perfect for summer.” The roughed-up plait balanced the drama of her bold liner — and it works so well in peak humidity. (The more flyaways, the better!)

“In order to get a cool messy braid that will last, prep your hair with the Beachwaver Curling Iron,” said Michele’s hairstylist Sarah Potempa, who created the look, as well as the handy self-rotating curling iron ($200; sarahpotempa.com) used on the star. “To maintain the soft wave, spritz hair all over with a texturizing spray. The finished style is the perfect easy, trendy braid for summer.” We’re obsessed with the L’Oreal Paris Texture Series Beach Spray ($7; lorealparisusa.com), which forms the ultimate surfer girl waves.

Exclusive Inside the Party: The Beverly Hilton Pool Relaunch With Lea Michele, Minka Kelly, and MoreMay 24, 2013 @ 11:30 am
Just in time for Memorial Day, the Beverly Hilton threw a pool party to celebrate the makeover and reopening of its famous Aqua Star Pool. The hotel enlisted the help of celeb stylist extraordinaire Estee Stanley to style the space with a retro Hollywood vibe, and she teamed up with DomaineHome.com and WhoWhatWear.com founders Hillary Kerr and Katherine Power to toast to the redesign by inviting all their star pals to come check it out. ”Things were freshened up,” Stanley said of upgrading the largest pool in Beverly Hills. “I wanted to keep it what it is, without making it too modern.” Lea Michele and Cat Deeley were among the A-listers present to take in the new setting, which includes avocado and lemon trees, plush white pool chairs, and a fire pit perfect for summer nights. And true to the nautical theme, Stanley even styled the entire pool staff in sailor-inspired navy and white Lacoste outfits. “It’s the best!” said attendee Sophia Bush, who posed with the newly-brunette Minka Kelly. “It’s like the chic-est afternoon pool party you’ve ever been to.” Click to get an inside look.
