While Beyonce is covering next month’s Haper’s Bazaar UK, Lea Michele has been honored with the same privilege for the magazine’s US twin. Inside the September issue, the Glee star dons the most fabulous fashions for her cover spread. (Moschino, Valentino, Gucci — oh my!) Below, have a peek at the glamorous photo set, and check out our round-up of the New Year’s Eve star’s classiest quotes from her Harper’s Bazaar interview.


** On her career aspirations: “I plan on playing every role on Broadway.” Darren Criss better watch out!

** On resembling middle schoolers: “I don’t look like a lot of other people, you know what I mean? I look like I’m 12.”

** On Glee’s Holly Holiday: “I am obsessed with Gwyneth Paltrow… I love talking with Gwyneth. She just gives good advice. She said, ‘Don’t ever read anything about you.'” We’re sure Gwennie added, “But be sure to read my new cookbook!”

** “Bethenny Frankel is smarter than all of us.”

** “I have a small life.” Well, she is only five foot three.

** “My schedule is insane, but I can out-eat you.” Well, then have you assistant call our assistant to set up a pie eating contest.

** On the Glee movie: “In 3-D my nose is going to look fabulous.” 

It’s just like that old saying: there are no small roles, only small actors (with giant appetites) who live small lives.
