Lea Michele Wears A Lacy Top As A Dress At 'American Horror Story' Premiere!

The star’s sexy red carpet look can be yours for $52 — but we recommend wearing it as a top! Lea definitely took a risk in her super-short get-up — but is it way too short?

Last time we saw Lea Michele out and about, we were disappointed with the baggy, shapeless maxi dress she wore during Paris Fashion Week! Well, it looks like the stylish star definitely got the memo. When she turned up on the red carpet for the premiere of The American Horror Story in LA on Oct. 3 Lea put her stellar shape on full display in what appeared to be a super short lacy frock, complete with a cutout — but it turns out the bold star was flaunting her figure in a top!

Confidence is key if you want to attempt to wear a shirt as a dress — but it isn’t an impossible move, especially if you’re on the petite side! Personally, I’m just over 5’1, so I’ve definitely paired longer tunics and tops with opaque tights before — and usually you can never tell! In this instance, Lea definitely is cutting it dangerously close in the form-fitting top sans tights, although she just got away with it. However, if you’re a taller girl I would stay away from this trend. Instead, pair the top with leggings and a pair of booties. Lea completed the look with a pair of Brian Atwood pumps.

The best thing about Lea’s look is definitely the price! When the Glee gal came down the red carpet, I thought she was in a bold, high-fashion frock from an edgy designer — but it turns out her top is totally affordable! At just $52.38, you can achieve Lea’s red carpet glam at home, thanks to the ASOS Lace High Neck Cut Out Top that she wore last night — although again, I recommend wearing it as a top, not a dress!
