Lea Michele (Rachel) loves to show off some skin on the red carpet, and it stands to reason that she knows a thing or two about fashion. So when Harper's Bazaar chose to feature Lea in an episode of its YouTube show, The Look, is there really any question why?

The Glee star joins Harper's Bazaar’s executive editor, Laura Brown, and she takes the sassy Brit on a L.A. shopping trip that gives the two gals plenty of time to talk about clothing and style.

Yet when she’s not all glammed up for a red carpet, Lea’s personal style is surprisingly laid-back.

“I wake up for work at, like, 4am in the morning sometimes. And getting dressed up for me generally means whether or not I’m wearing UGGs or high heels. And if I’m wearing high heels, it’s generally these, this one pair,” Lea says. 

“I’ll do just skinny jeans, heels, and then I love comfy sweaters.”

So what about the classic little black dress? Not so much, Lea says. “Super, super tight dresses for me are not my fave,” she tells Laura. “I prefer to exhale.”

Well, the ability to breathe does seem pretty important. Solid logic, Lea.
