Lea Michele in Los Angeles

Posted on July 10, 2014

Two things we really love seeing here:

1. That she can lay off the super-vamp styles and enjoy herself in some real-world clothes that look cute as well as practical, and

2. She remembers to tip her valet. Granted, there are cameras present, but still. Nice to know she’s not a bitch to service people.

Those sandals are pretty cute. What’s interesting to us is that Lea is arguably less dressed up than her friend. We’d have figured her for the competitive type who overdresses for everything. As for the romper, it’s not our favorite kind of garment in the world, but she’s pulling it off. Besides, we couldn’t bring ourselves to criticize it too much simply because it’s  refreshing to see her this laid back and seemingly unconcerned with how she looks.

  • Qitkat

    Pretty, summery, 100% appropriate. Well done, Lea!

  • Thomas

    She always looks so cute when she’s just “out and about.” Stop trying so hard, Lea, and maybe you would come off as less annoying and desperate for attention.

    • Moocows

      Agreed, she looks best rocking her girl next door looks.

  • Lilithcat

    She does look nice. Relaxed, appropriately dressed, very cute.

  • Sobaika

    It’s so easy to like her when she’s not trying so hard to be liked.

    • lovelyivy

      Meh. She’s one of those folks who have just been seen too much. I can’t get back my appreciation of her from her Spring Awakening days, lost in a sea of of! course! style options.

      • gayle

        She is like a young Reese Witherspoon to me. She is very good at the cute america’s sweetheart appearance but I am not surprised when she gets up in a cops face asking “do you know who I am?”

  • Meg0GayGuys6

    Easy and breezy! She looks so much more pleasant, happy, and likable when she’s relaxed. More of this please, Lea.

  • Alyssa

    This is very refreshing, and I hope to start seeing a more relaxed style from her in her appearances. I know that’s likely wishful thinking, but still. That said, I cannot sign off on a romper.

    • bessann28

      Ugh, the rompers. Just… no.

  • Glam Dixie

    Just the fact the she isn’t posing or vamping at me makes me almost like the romper. Almost. She looks like she has started to be happy again and that makes me glad for her.

  • MilaXX

    I don’t hate rompers and it’s nice to see her relaxed and looking happy.

  • Sarah

    Minor quibble, I know, but that romper needs at least two inches less fabric in the straps. Her armholes are too low, as is the neckhole.

    • kimmeister

      The only reason she bought it is because it *almost* shows her sternum.

    • girlsaturday

      To be fair, Lea Michele is 5’2 – unless you can find what you’re looking for in petite sizes (which are often hard to come by) the straps are almost guaranteed to be too long. Granted, we’re talking about someone who certainly has the means to get all of her clothing altered to fit perfectly, but sometimes you just want to wear that cute new thing you bought right away and I’m not gonna dock points for that.

      • Sarah

        Hence “minor quibble.”

  • Sam Smith

    Nay on the hairband (takes it too casual), but yay for everything else. Cute look.

    • whatwasright

      Same. For once I sort of want her to dress it up more. A ponytail that looked less like she was going for a run would have really helped.

    • marlie

      If she’s really just out and about running errands, I don’t mind the headband. Compared to other stars, this doesn’t seem like a staged “oh, who knew the paparazzi would be here?” kind of photo op.

  • jonnyf8

    So maybe her new gigolo boyfriend is perhaps a good influence on her. So much more relaxed. wink-wink.

  • KingCrazy

    Nothing noteworthy here, IMO.

  • S-k-s

    I don’t think I have ever seen her look genuinely happy and relaxed like that … One of the first times I didn’t irrationally dislike her the second I saw her face.

  • msdamselfly

    Completely agree with TLo. Also like the fact that her purse looks well worn and not like a 5000 dollar showoff item

  • Hysterectomypants

    I’ve come around to rompers the way this one is being worn–casual and summery and fun. I only seem to really hate them on Taylor Swift, and I’m not sure why. I’ll echo everyone else and say that Lea is much more likable and cute when she’s just being herself.

    • marlie

      I think when they’re on someone like Taylor, especially during her gym entrance/exit tour, it screams “fake.” We know that that outfit was specifically picked and styled for that, AND the outfit is usually styled wrong. The other thing is that Taylor is sort of “twee” in general, which makes rompers too saccharine sweet. Lea’s not generally like that, so it’s not quite as annoying.

      • Hysterectomypants

        Yeah, i think that’s my objection to this look on Taylor. Plus, she seems to take rompers seriously, which makes them instantly a bit ridiculous.

    • kimmeister

      Plus, Taylor wears them with 4″ heels.

  • Mothra

    She looks cute. And I am forgiving the onesie because she looks happy.

  • lunchcoma

    I can’t believe I like something she’s wearing, but that’s pretty cute.

  • marlie

    Despite hating rompers on principle, this one is pretty cute (I like the print), and I agree that it’s nice to see her in something relaxed.

  • Judy_J

    Well, well….there must be frozen lakes in Hades, because I’m about to say something nice about Ms Michele. She’s young enough to wear the romper and not look ridiculous. And yes, points in her favor for tipping her driver. Good girl!

  • alyce1213

    I’m not a romper fan either, but this one is really cute. The print is pretty. It’s refreshing to see her like this.
    Smallest quibble, hardly worth mentioning — while I love a shoulder bag, hers is hanging a bit low.

    • kimmeister

      She’s even wearing it cross-body and it’s still low! Must be made for someone over 6′.

  • PeaceBang

    Lea! Such a redemption! Blue ikat cuteness.

  • Leah Elzinga

    This is a look I would actually believe as “coming from the gym”. And I don’t mean that in a mean way.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    I don’t recall ever seeing a star with cash dollars before. Aside from that, she looks so cute and relaxed here.

  • teensmom99

    She just looks great and happy and that’s always in style.

    • Not applicable

      agreed- we don’t talk about age appropriate once they are past teen years- but this looks super cute and young and ‘age appropriate.’ And yes, that smile looks real- so glad to see her look happy.

  • AuntyStephy

    That girl was made for rompers

  • MarissaLG

    Lookin’ like a regular ol’ Jersey girl out at the mall. Very cute.

  • MaggieSays

    I approve! She looks adorable and non-intense.

  • smayper

    Looks just like a college or just past college young thing here in Boston, walking around in the 90 degree heat.

  • http://tvblogster.blogspot.com Boop

    Thumbs up! And I’m not a fan.

  • kimmeister

    Way to go, Lea! Your body actually looks even better than when you barely cover it with a bandage dress.

    • Clash D

      She needs to check her posture though. Sloucher!

  • evave2

    She looks like a real person here and that is no small thing; her smile is at least 100 watts (I sure hope it’s not fake for the picture taker, but it doesn’t look like it was that close so maybe it IS real).

  • snarkykitten

    My parents had a couch in that print. Our last dog died on it. :

  • Man Dala

    I think she looks awful. Maybe it’s my (not so) irrational dislike for her typing.

  • http://weirdinedgewise.blogspot.com ONEWEIRDWORD

    Perfect summer look.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    It is a pleasure to see Lea wearing something summery and cute, and relaxed.

  • quiltrx

    I’m just happy that her bag appears to have stuff in it AND she is carrying it like a normal person :)

  • majorbedhead

    I don’t love the sandals, but she looks very cute here.

  • Columbinia

    Looking ordinary and carrying cash. Who knew these things happened in LA?

  • SophieB210

    I was certain one of the things they loved seeing would be a purse with things in it.

  • Danielle

    The romper doesn’t even offend me. I think because she’s not wearing it to be twee like TSwift. She looks breezy and comfortable, perfectly suited to a day out an about.
