Leah Michele wore a backless Pucci and squeezed hands with Cory Monteith at the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball in Los Angeles on Saturday. The two ‘Glee’ costars were coy when asked if marriage plans may be in the offing. ‘You’re going to have to wait and see,’ Monteith reportedly said. The ball, founded by Eric Dane of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and his wife Rebecca Gayheart Dane, raised $1 million to help the homeless. The evening’s honorees were John Landgraf, president and general manager of FX Networks; Shawn Levy, director and producer of “Real Steel,” “Date Night,” and “Night at the Museum;” and LL Cool J, star of “NCIS: Los Angeles.” [Society News LA]
