Lea Michele Steps Out in White Lace Dress After Return to ‘Glee’

Brave soul Lea Michele was spotted in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Saturday as the Glee star met up with some friends for actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler’s baby shower at the Thompson Beverly Hills hotel.

Michele, 26, looked pretty in a white lace dress, nude pumps and a pair of shades as she made her way from her vehicle to Caulfield’s Bar and Dining Room inside the hotel, where the soiree was thrown.

The sighting comes just one day after the actress reported for work on the FOX series — some three weeks after the tragic death of boyfriend and co-star Cory Monteith.

First day of glee today..And at my first wardrobe fitting for Rachel Berry for Season Five! I’ve missed her so much,” Michele wrote.

Earlier in the week, the grieving star posted a message of thanks to her 3.6 million Twitter followers, adding that “Cory will forever be in my heart.

Season 5 of Glee will premiere on FOX on Sept. 26. The season’s third episode will address drug addiction and the “circumstances surrounding Cory’s death,” the network’s entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly confirmed on Thursday.

Show co-creator Ryan Murphy and the Glee family will also shoot PSAs that will run throughout the tribute episode.

Monteith, who played Finn Hudson on the beloved series, was found dead at his Vancouver hotel on July 13. The 31-year-old died of a toxic mixture involving heroin and alcohol, the British Columbia Coroner’s Office confirmed three days later.
