LEA Michele brings a little Glee to Hawaii as she shows off her tanned bikini bod.
The 26-year-old star flaunted her toned figure in an orange bandeau two-piece as she enjoyed a sunshine break with co-star boyfriend Cory Monteith.
She kept sun-safe with a black baseball hat as she splashed in the surf and waded in to waist height.
But 30-year-old Cory avoided the waves, choosing to keep his clothes on and take snaps of the scenery instead.
The couple – who play on-off lovers Rachel and Finn in the musical series – celebrated the New Year in the sunshine resort and, after a week of rest and play, Lea tweeted her happiness.
She wrote: “Having the most amazing vaca:) Feeling so rested and relax and happy! Also rockin’ some sweet tan lines right now.. lol”
She may be escaping the blanket coverage of the Les Miserables movie — having missed out on the part of Eponine, nabbed by newcomer Samantha Barks.
But at least 2013 sees the release of new animation, Dorothy Of Oz, which also stars the voice talents of Patrick Stewart, Dan Ackroyd and James Belushi.
For the meantime, the New York-born actress is content to enjoy her holiday.
The pair arrived at the beach on Friday, and she immediately decided she was in “paradise”.
She tweeted: “In paradise and I’ve never been happier:) Time now to rest, relax, and enjoy some fun in the sun! Xo” On New Year’s Eve she added: “Happy New Year’s Eve! It’s the last day of 2012.. A year that was filled with so many blessings, tons of love and much much happiness!
“Gonna enjoy this day and welcome in the new year tonight surround by the people I love most:) Can’t wait to see what 2013 brings.. Xo”
