    Lookin' good, Cory Monteith!

    The Glee star made his first red carpet appearance tonight since completing a stint in rehab in April.

    He and his Glee love Lea Michele were among the VIPs at the 12th annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball at a private home in the tony Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles.

    Monteith looked incredible in a grey Calvin Klein suit, white shirt with small polka dots and a matching tie.
    "I think he looks great, doesn't he?" Michele (in Valentino) gushed to me about her boyfriend. "He's the best."

    He certainly is. Monteith is a passionate supporter of Chrysalis, an organization that helps homeless and low-income individuals gain employment.

    "Chrysalis is empowerment," Monteith said. "It's not just a handout. It's empowerment. It's taking people who just need a help up."

    Monteith entered rehab in late March. "Cory Monteith has voluntarily admitted himself into a treatment facility for substance addiction," his rep said at the time. "He graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery." 

    The 31-year-ol actor was first spotted out of rehab about a month later when he and Michele were photographed at LAX catching a plane for some vacation time.

    It was at the Butterfly Ball last year that Monteith finally confirmed that he and Michele were a couple when he told yours truly that the two considered the evening a "date night."

    Hosted by New Girl star Max Greenfield, this year's guest list also included Colin Farrell, Rebecca Gayheart-Dane, Eric Dane, Ali Larter, J.J. Abrams, Colin Egglesfield, David O. Russell and Ben McKenzie.

    More than $1.25 million was raised tonight.

    "I'm happy I could be here to support an amazing organization," Monteith said.

    And so are we.
