Lea Michele wore this at a pre-Grammy event honoring Barbra Streisand, at which she performed FOR Barbra Streisand. What I didn’t realize is that apparently she had never seen Funny Girl — the movie featuring the song “Don’t Rain On My Parade,” which she sang on both Glee and the Tonys telecast, and which many thought was her way of auditioning for a Broadway revival — until Ryan Murphy told her to watch it. Which sort of makes all her stuff about idolizing Barbra ring a little hollower. But I’m being harsh: Really, I thought Lea looked very nice in this dress, and that it was a perfectly subtle and understated way to be glamorous enough for the occasion, without looking like you want to upstage the honoree. That is a tough row to hoe, and so I applaud her.
However, I can’t decide how I feel about her Grammy dress, so let’s take it to the slideshow and then hash it out in the polls.
