Ooh, Lea Michele seems to be getting into the holiday spirit!

The Glee starlet attended L’Oreal ParisWomen of Worth event held in NYC on Tuesday night, rockin’ a lacy red Dolce & Gabbana dress.

Her stunning number featured tonal Swarovski crystals along the sleeves and bodice, which glistened every time Lea moved.

She styled her standout ensem simply with a pair of black Christian Louboutin pumps and small stud earrings, but it was her smile we lurved the most!

There’s not one thing we’d change about this! Flawless, Lea, flawless!

Dearest Gleeks: here is the first promo for the upcoming fifth season of FOX’s Glee.

The 22-second preview, unveiled Friday, comes just over a month after the tragic passing of Cory Monteith.

“Once again with feeling . . . once again with drama . . . once again with passion . . . are you ready to go . . . once again?” the clip asks in Glee font, along with footage from last season.

As FOX previously announced, the new season’s third episode, airing Oct. 10, will pay tribute to Monteith and his beloved character Finn.

Show co-creator Ryan Murphy revealed more details about the episode this week.

“Basically, what we’re doing in the episode is we are not telling you yet, or maybe not at all, how that character died,” Murphy told Deadline. “The idea being, how somebody died is interesting and maybe morbid, but we say very early on in the episode, ‘This episode is about a celebration of that character’s life.'”

He continued: “We loved Cory and we loved Finn and it feels like a huge loss and a huge heartache not to have either of them around. We’re trying to craft an episode that’s not just about us grieving but about a lot of the young fans grieving.”

Glee season 5 premieres on FOX on Sept. 26.

Brave soul Lea Michele was spotted in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Saturday as the Glee star met up with some friends for actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler‘s baby shower at the Thompson Beverly Hills hotel.

Michele, 26, looked pretty in a white lace dress, nude pumps and a pair of shades as she made her way from her vehicle to Caulfield’s Bar and Dining Room inside the hotel, where the soiree was thrown.

The sighting comes just one day after the actress reported for work on the FOX series – some three weeks after the tragic death of boyfriend and co-star Cory Monteith.

“First day of glee today..And at my first wardrobe fitting for Rachel Berry for Season Five! I’ve missed her so much,” Michele wrote.

Earlier in the week, the grieving star posted a message of thanks to her 3.6 million Twitter followers, adding that “Cory will forever be in my heart.”

Season 5 of Glee will premiere on FOX on Sept. 26. The season’s third episode will address drug addiction and the “circumstances surrounding Cory’s death,” the network’s entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly confirmed on Thursday.

Show co-creator Ryan Murphy and the Glee family will also shoot PSAs that will run throughout the tribute episode.

Monteith, who played Finn Hudson on the beloved series, was found dead at his Vancouver hotel on July 13. The 31-year-old died of a toxic mixture involving heroin and alcohol, the British Columbia Coroner’s Office confirmed three days later.

Cory Monteith arrived in our homes in 2009 in a happy burst of music, color and youth called Glee.

The news of his death in a Vancouver hotel room comes with the shock of someone dying at only age 31 (he seemed more like 22) – and also with the realization that he takes with him that music, color and youth.

Monteith was Finn Hudson, tall, handsome in a clean, square way. He looked like an old-fashioned teenage dreamboat dropped down in a school so up-to-the-minute in its heterogeneous mix he might have seemed out of place – like Ronald Reagan turning up in his brown suit to audition for the annual musical (Rent, say).

But Monteith had an open-faced quality that revealed, or betrayed, whatever emotion he was feeling (or singing) at the moment. He had an earnestness, an awkwardness, a sincerity that gave him a certain rawness – and an enduring sweetness.

The other performers on Glee tend to have the shiny, expert confidence that we want (and need) of a show that expects its characters to burst into song. Monteith never had quite that same edge: His definition was softer. He moved through the corridors of McKinley High at a slightly different lope, and that all lingers in the mind.

At least that’s how Monteith strikes me now – perhaps I’d already begun to adjust my ideas about him after he entered rehab earlier this year for substance abuse. These shadows filter into your perceptions, especially your perceptions of an actor still so early in his career – and associated with a show as bright as Glee.

Miss him already.

Of course Lea is always causing jaws to drop on the red carpet with her bold cleavage-baring looks, so this is really nothing new to us.

The Glee star, who attended the event with her TV fianc and real-life boyfriend Cory Monteith, looked very sexy in an off-white Armani dress with a plunging, ruffled neckline and a center split.

She completed her outfit with a silver Fendi clutch, Jenni Kayne strappy sandals, and intricate dangle earrings by Samira 13 jewelry.

As for hair and makeup, Lea opted for loose ombre waves, shimmery smokey eyes, and nude lips.

Lea looks great as usual, though a bit overdressed for the occasion. Nonetheless, we just love her outfit… and her cute (and super tall) arm candy just makes it look even better.
