Not only does she look gorgeous, but it's so good to see Lea Michele smiling after everything she's been through this year!

Yesterday the Glee actress jetted from New York to Los Angeles International Airport, and the night before that she attended the L'Oreal Paris Women of Worth event at The Pierre.

A cheerful Lea chatted with Extra on the red carpet and dished on what she's up to over the holidays. "I have my amazing family with me. My mom and my dad -- we're just going to do something -- the three of us -- and spend time [together]," she said. "I have the most incredible family. I love my dear friends. They are always there for me and so wonderful. I'm so thankful for them."

And aside from Kate Hudson, Lea revealed that another friendly face from the Glee cast helped her out a lot this year. "I've got to give a shout out to Miss Amber Riley," Lea said. "She's the best. I love her so much. I'm so proud of her [and] she's been there for me so much through everything. I'm so thankful this year for those friends and my family." Awww!
