Lea Michele Covers Marie Claire UK (PHOTOS)

Lea Michele is slowly but surely becoming a magazine covergirl.

After announcing her love of vegan baked ziti in Glamour, the Glee diva graces the cover of November’s Marie Claire UK, stepping out of Rachel Berry’s buttoned-up cardigan in favor of a beautifully-beaded Roberto Cavalli gown.

She also goes (almost) topless in a few sexy photos for the cover shoot, telling the magazine she was “comfortable” showing her “sensual side.”

Lea also said her crazy-big Glee success is even sweeter after years of TV producers telling her “there wasn’t a place for me in television.”

“I wasn’t pretty enough. No one could figure out what I was,” she said. “The great thing about Glee is that it gave me a chance and it shows that you don’t have to look like how everyone else looks.”

For the record, she looks pretty gorgeous to us!
