Lea Michele recently wrapped up some promo's for 'Scream Queens' and not the former 'Glee' star can be seen on the October 2015 cover of Flare magazine. On the cover which was shot by Nino Munoz, Lea is sitting pretty in a MICHAEL KORS FALL 2015 yellow & dark purple printed embroidered dress which is accessorized with gold statement jewelry. Beauty wise, her look featured a smoke eye which was offset with a complimentary pink lip and wavy tresses with bangs.
In the issue, Lea talks Scream Queens, life after Corey Monteith, her self help book, her goals and more. Continue below to see her fashion spread & to read some excerpts from her interview. For more on her feature, visit Flare.com and pick up a copy when the issue hits newsstand.

On 'Scream Queens' & if it has a feminist message:
“This isn’t that serious—we’re just drinking Emma’s pee water and getting buried up to our necks and burying dead bodies and sh-t like that, and I had to stick my finger into a pustulous cyst on the show the other day and it was disgusting. “I think that the feminist message in Scream Queens is that girls are f-cking badass. Ryan was saying the show is totally girl power. It’s mainly a female cast, all of whom are incredibly talented, strong and successful women. But also, think of any scary movie: it’s not the strong man that survives in the end; it’s the girl. Girls are so much stronger than they know, and especially more than society makes them believe they are.”
On her goals:
“I’d be like, ‘You’re crazy. You’re writing these goals down, but it’s never gonna happen.’ So I would start doubting myself a lot. But then those goals would just be burning on that page and I’d be like, well, I’m not just gonna throw this away,” she says. I show her my own multicoloured to-do list and she oohs over it with the lust reserved for a Céline bag: “I love that list.”
On the woman she looks up to:
“Emma speaks up for herself, she stands up for herself, she takes care of herself, and those are the kinds of girls I want to be around. There is enough gossip, craziness, unhealthy sh-t—girls against girls—in this f-cking business. My goal is to be as much of a positive role model as I possibly can be.”
On life after Corey Monteith:
“I wanted to make sure that I was okay with me, feeling strong and feeling happy on my own. I didn’t want anybody to fill any holes for me—that sounds sexual! I wanted to make sure that I was a whole person again and that no one was coming into my life to put me back together. I needed to do that on my own. I worked very, very, very hard and I got back to that place where I was genuinely happy and strong and ready to live again and see the world and, you know, bring in more beautiful experiences. And that’s when someone miraculously came into my life.”
