Lea Michele: Her Allure Photo Shoot

Lea Michele bares it all: the Glee rumors, what it was like to strip down on stage, and why she’s proud to be a diva. Check out these exclusive behind-the-scenes photos from her cover shoot with Norman Jean Roy. For more of our interview with the star, pick up the December issue of Allure, on newsstands November 22.

Michele is confident in her unconventional beauty. “Have I been asked to change anything? Uh-huh. Uh-huh. When I was 15, my mother and I went to meet a manager who said, ‘You have to get a nose job in order for me to work with you,'” Michele tells us. “My mother would say to me, ‘Barbra Streisand never got a nose job. You’re not getting a nose job.’ And this was before I really even knew who Barbra was. I just knew that she was, like, the messiah for girls like me.”

Michele has heard the stories of her diva-like behavior. At a Time magazine party, when a photographer asked who she was, she reportedly replied, “Sarah Palin”—a remark that was taken to be a snotty “Don’t you know who I am?” “I was being silly,” Michele says. “But anyway, that’s a huge thing I learned…. Not everybody knows you and has the same sense of humor. At the same time, if I couldn’t be myself, I’d lose my mind.”

“I came from the theater world, where the word ‘diva’ was awesome,” she continues. “But it’s different in Los Angeles. And this all happened to me so quickly. But I came to L.A., and the first audition I went on was for Glee. And I was on the show two months later and had a very different life.” Here, Michele poses in a lace-and-silk-satin bra by Agent Provocateur and Norma Kamali briefs.

Like many young actresses in the spotlight, Michele became the subject of eating-disorder rumors when she suddenly looked very thin during the summer of 2010. Not so, she says—the weight loss was due to a surgery she had because of an infection in her jaw. “I’m half Italian,” says the actress. “I can eat some bitches under the table.” Polyamide elastane bra by Stella McCartney.

How to achieve Lea Michele’s look- Celebrity Beauty Fashion Trend: Winged Eyeliner

Here are a few tips:

1.) Fill in your brows, no sexy eye is complete without a nice thick brow

2.) Find a good liquid or cream liner. Use a small pointed brush or a pointed eyeliner pencil or pen.  Also, by using a black eyeshadow to start the wing off before using the eyeliner. Starting your liner at the corner of the eyelid extending it outward to the corner of your eye ending it with a wing out movement.  Then go back over the eyeshadow with a liquid eyeliner to seal in the look.

3.) Dramatic eyes call for a nude lip. Keep it classy and sassy. Keeping lips simple and putting  focus only on the eyes not the mouth.

4.) Curling large sections of your hair with a small barrel curling iron,  then comb lightly comb the curls out and spray with a light hairspray. To avoid frizzy curls finish off the look with some shine serum or shine spray of your choice.

Reality Tv Star Lauren Conrad Graces Allure’s Spring Issue Cover 2011

12 Apr

Lauren Conrad might be gracing the cover of Allure’s spring “Nude” issue, but don’t expect to see her baring all inside the magazine. Instead, Lauren keeps her clothes firmly in place while opening up about self-image, body issues and a leftover point of confusion from her days as a reality TV star.

First things first: If you’re wondering why Lauren didn’t opt in for the nude shoot (where stars-in-the-buff include Ashley Tisdale, Kaley Cuoco, Keri Hilson and Bridget Moynahan), look no further than her own assessment of her, um, assets:

“I’m not a sexy person,” she said. “I’m okay with it. I’ve never been the sexy girl. Whenever I’ve had a boyfriend, he’s always been like, ‘Oh, you’re cute.’

Sadly, a life in the public eye hasn’t exactly helped LC’s confidence levels, either. Remembering some recent coverage from the launch of her new fashion project, Lauren said, “It wasn’t ‘Lauren Debuts Her Line’; it was ‘Lauren Debuts a Fuller Figure,’ and I was like, ‘Oh, no!’ because I’d put on a few pounds.

Fortunately the girl’s got a foolproof method for looking her best…and it has nothing to do with diet and exercise.

If I’m shopping and I see paparazzi, my bag goes directly to my thighs,” she quipped.

Anyway, enough about the thighs; Lauren has more important things to worry about, like a new book deal, a new fashion line and ongoing status as a style icon. And while her place in the spotlight is pretty much a foregone conclusion from here on out, it’s always delightful to see how sanguine LC can be about her reality-television roots—dating back to the very beginning, when her only title was “Reality Show Talent.”

She joked, “They called me that, and I’m like, ‘What’s my Talent?'”
