Lea Michele is still in shock and disbelief over the sudden death of “Glee” co-star and boyfriend Cory Monteith. It’s a severe blow at a time when her own career is soaring.

Her stunning photo spread, all in black, in the latest issue of Marie Claire’s Mexican edition seem all the more tragic.

Lea covers the August issue of the fashion magazine wearing a sexy, short tuxedo jacket and black satin panties with no bra.

She looks gorgeous in all black designs in her photo spread. But there is also a certain sadness about them in the wake of her tragedy.

Monteith, 31, was found dead in his Vancouver hotel room July 13 after a night of partying with friends. An autopsy found that he died of acute heroin and alcohol poisoning. He’d been struggling with substance abuse for years, and Lea once helped to get him into rehab.

Lea is reportedly suffering from the shock of coming to terms with the sudden death of someone close to you. It can produce symptoms akin to a post traumatic stress disorder.

Fortunately, she’s had the cast of “Glee” to help provide support. Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy has been especially helpful, according to press reports.
