Lea Michele's Surprising Reaction to Her New L'Oréal Paris Gig

09/27/2012 at 05:00 PM ET

Lea Michele L'Oreal Sara Jaye Weiss

She’s one of the biggest stars on television, has a smoking hot boyfriend and regularly shows off her body in sexy plunging gowns on the red carpet. However, Lea Michele is still stunned about being named the newest face of L’Oréal Paris.

“Growing up I was never really considered the typical beauty,” Michele tells WWD. “So the fact that I’m now the face of such an incredible company and brand is so awesome — that they would look at me and consider me is unbelievable.”

Maybe she’s just being modest. But in case Michele needs a self-confidence boost, we’d like to direct her attention to this stunning image, which was snapped while she was getting ready for a party for the beauty brand in New York City on Monday.

“I think I have a type of look that is very relatable, that’s different and unique that girls can look at and say, ‘I feel like I look like her,'” the Glee star says.

That’s sweet, Lea, but we’d kill to look like you. Or at least have your hair. Tell us: Do you think Michele is the right choice for L’Oréal Paris’s new campaign?

In the beginning I thought Lea was a little arrogant but she is coming across very nice and sincere. I pray she keeps that. She seems to appreciate all that she is getting which she is VERY deserving of. Always be grateful and appreciative and your fans will never leave you. I think you are a true gem!

Lea Michele is HOT. She is talented and seems really close with the cast and her family which is a bonus too. She is a perfect choice for a beauty product-at least as a guy I can appreciate her ads ;)

Given the extent and soctistipahion of the mis-information you are spreading or sharing with likeminded. So while you are sitting around the campfire telling ghost stories, let me remind you that the explosion of the deficit occurred under Bush, primarily, though not exclusively, as a reasult of huge tax breaks to the wealthly along with substantial spending increases- including billions for the Iraq war which were not even placed in the budget for review. (Not union for union wages, as you seem to obsessively and erroneous carry on about.) As for the recession/depression, that too was a Bush and bosses creation. In this case, while you are hunting in the couch cushions to get some small change before they go into union wages, Wall Street and the financial community ran a few scams that enriched them at the public expense. Remember regulation? Well while you are so panicked about some workers getting a say in their workplace and their wages, your sponsors stole the country blind, got bailed out and insist that they not be monitored or regulated because they promise not to do it again.How about disclosing your funding sources. My guess is they are the same scoundrels who fattened on the tax breaks and gourged on the public trough again when the disaster they created required massived public investment to prevent another Depression. So, seems like you guys are busy blaming working people for the policies and practises that Bush and finance in particular collaborated on. If you blame Obama, tell idiotic fairy tales about health care, and vilify anyone seeking a piece of the American pie, you think we will forget how we got into this mess? And do you think we can’t tell who is paying for your 3rd rate propoganda. Say hi to Liz Cheney. She ought to be nutty enough to be on your board and your payroll.
