Lea Michele takes the mantra "If you've got it, flaunt it" to heart.

The singer/actress wore a nude-hued Valentino gown to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and InStyle Miss Golden Globe 2013 party and she showed some leg, some back, and some cleavage. She was largely covered up but showed skin in all the right places, thanks to strategically placed slits. The pale color of the dress popped against her sunkissed skin, creating a "wowsa" effect.

Since the star was showing just enough skin, she didn't need to over accessorize, which was a smart move on her part. The clutch, bracelet and earrings were all she needed to complete this winning look.

While the cut of this gown could have been matronly on a celeb with less confidence, Michele's huge smile and posture give it a youthful edge. Plus, all that boob baring and back showing and thigh flashing prevent it from looking "too mature" for her. The pouf in the three-quarter length sleeves also gives it a "fun" vibe.

Lea Michele is steadily becoming a red carpet star to watch. PopCrushers, what do you think of Lea Michele's gown? Are you loving it as much as we are?
