Lea Michele has a hero — and it might surprise you who!

The Scream Queens star shared a throwback Thursday photo from Coachella with none other than chef Guy Fieri.

“#TBT to meeting my hero @GuyFieri,” Michele, 29, tweeted (along with some googly heart eyes meant for the Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives star).

“If you know me than you’ll know that meeting @guyfieri was one of the greatest moments of my life..#fangirling,” she wrote on Instagram, next to another pair of heart googly eyes.

Though Fieri, 48, is known for taking restaurant patrons to flavor town, we’re not sure there’s much in his repertoire that would be in line with Michele’s vegan diet.

Fieri announced his latest (non-vegan friendly) venture last month — a new “mouth-watering barbecue” restaurant on Carnival Cruises. But perhaps he could whip something up special for one of his biggest fans?

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

That’s a surprising one. I wouldn’t walk into my yard to meet this clown.

Ally1, that’s hilarious! Basically they’re the same bloated-ego, self important goofballs so not super surprising. Daring of her to admit tho.

Wow will never get over how nasty people are in comment sections. She is exaggerating she enjoys the show Diners, Drive in and Dive. I hardly think she looks up to him as a role model or anyhting.

Lea is not vegan and has not claimed to be vegan since 2011 and even then she said she would switch up her diet. She never was strictly vegan just limited animal by product in her diet. She has said this several time and even said it in her book.
