A Look Back at Cory Monteith's Model Moment for Self Magazine—See the Pics, Plus Behind-the-Scenes Footage at Cover Shoot

It goes without saying that we're deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Glee star Cory Monteith over the weekend, and we've taken a moment to reflect on his most memorable roles, his romance with Lea Michele, and of course, his vibrant career in Hollywood that won fans over effortlessly thanks to his charismatic personality and terrific talent.

And of course, not to go unmentioned is Cory's adorable style and handsome good looks.

After all, what girl didn't fall for Finn and his athletic-meets-adorable charm on the hit show?

When it comes to admiring Cory's style, we have to hand it to him: he could pull off any ensemble with ease, but he certainly stole the show whenever he stepped up his style game in a dapper suit or more formal look.

One of our favorite fashion moments of his was when he posed for Self magazine's December issue a few short months ago modeling an array of festive holiday attire alongside model Michelle Ouellet.

The hunky actor showed off his cool confidence in playful ensembles including a tartan plaid blazer, royal blue slacks, a swanky velour sports coat, coordinating bow ties, hip sunglasses, sneakers and more.

The perfectly-accessorized star held his own next to Ouellet, who was beautifully decked out in pretty party dresses, fancy high heels, bold fur coats and ornate hair accessories to boot.

Does it get any cuter? We think not!

"I'm dressed up all…fashionable!" he said with a smile while filming a candid behind-the-scenes video at the cover shoot for the fitness magazine. "All the clothes are loud and in your face. I look like Jack White. It's awesome!"

Indeed he did!

Especially in a head-turning striped blazer boasting a bold red, white and black motif paired with slim-fitting red pants.

Certainly not an easy look to pull off, but Monteith masters it!
