Lea Michele of 'Glee' appears almost topless in racy 'Marie Claire' photo
The 24-year-old actress, whose character has often tried to change her preppy look to appear sexier, dons black Eres hotpants, mid-calf, black Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci boots and clutches a Dancia tutu over her chest in the revealing picture as she pouts and gives a smouldering glance."This show would be a huge pressure on someone who wanted to rebel and who wants to party, but I don't have those needs or wants," the magazine quotes Michele as saying. "I don't smoke and I don't do drugs. I've never been a 'Lets go out and have a cosmopolitan' kind of girl. I don't even think I've ever tasted a cosmopolitan before."
In another photo, Michele is sitting with her legs spread slightly as she puts her hand, whose nails are topped with black nail polish, between them. A third shot shows her in ruffled Dolce & Gabbana dress with thin straps pulled down around her shoulders.
Glee recently honored singer Britney Spears with a tribute episode that earned the FOX musical sitcom its highest ratings yet. Michele reenacted Spears' 1998 music video Baby One More Time, which features the star in a sexy school uniform.
Spears appeared in person several times throughout the Tuesday episode.
John Stamos also made one of what is said to be several guest appearances as Carl, a dentist who has stolen the heart of Will Schuester's love, Emma Pillsbury. Stamos recently told OnTheRedCarpet.com he is "having the best time" on the show and said the cast was "everything you would want them to be."
It was reported earlier this week that Gwyneth Paltrow, who showcases her musical chops in the new film Country Strong, is also set to guest-star on the show and will play a teacher. She even gets to belt out several solo songs.
