Though Lea Michele and Cory Monteith walked the red carpet separately, they were inseparable once inside Saturday’s 11th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball sponsored by Audi, Grey Goose, Kayne Anderson and smartwater. Michele wore a patterned pastel gown by Emilio Pucci, featuring an exposed back that showed a little skin.
Though Michele was coy, Monteith wasn’t shy about what they were doing at the ball. “It’s a bit of a date night, yeah,” he told Marc Malkin. Michele posed for photos with Ashley Tisdale, a Valentino-clad Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Jamie Lynn Sigler (in Nicole Miller and carrying the “Lara” slate pearlescent with ice ends clutch by Edie Parker).
With Glee on summer hiatus, Monteith treated himself to a vacation. ”It was amazing,” he told Malkin at the bash, held at a Brentwood, CA estate.” I drove from here to Vancouver then I went to Tokyo and then I drove back from Vancouver to here.”
Whitney Cummings, LL Cool J, Elijah Wood, Dave Grohl, Ryan Kwanten, Johnny Knoxville, Kim Raver, Sarah Drew, Eric Dane, Rebecca Gayheart, Soleil Moon Frye, Whitney Port, and Balthazar Getty were also at the event.
