Love, love Lea Michele. She’s a total hit in every way. She’s cute, unassuming, talented and down-to-Earth. She seems like someone who’d be really fun to knock a few back with.
However, Lea goes way beyond “cute” in photos from last night’s 2010 Time 100 Gala held in New York City (Yeah, and I guess 2010 is the year of resurrecting and overusing the word “gala,” since “party,” “celebration,” and “event” are clearly way too déclassé for this new narrow-nosed decade).
Michele was photographed at last night’s event in a floor-length champagne-colored dress and looked way hotter than I ever imagined she could … not that we have much to compare to — she’s the nerdiest ever on Glee. Lea looked shy and unsure of herself during the photo ops but it really only added to her appeal.
All in all, yesterday was a big day for the television actress; she spoke with Ellen DeGeneres before hitting up the, uh, gala and discussed how she almost ran Bon Jovi over in Los Angeles earlier in the week:
“I was reversing on Robertson. I pulled into the intersection and realized I was too late to make a left turn, so I reversed. And my friend was like, ‘Yeah, you almost hit Jon Bon Jovi’.”
Gotta love a girl who can publicly admit to almost killing a superstar of epic proportions. And because I do love this girl, I won’t point out the fact(s) that her dress is a little too snug around the waist and long enough to pull the front part of it between her legs and wrap it around her waist like a toga. Twice.

Love you, girl!
