Cory Monteith was always a hit on the red carpet, but the Glee star was looking particularly handsome on June 8 at the Chrysalis Ball.

It was the late actor's first red carpet after his recent stint in rehab.

He wore a slim grey Calvin Klein suit, a white shirt with polka dots and a skinny tie.

In what appears to be his last interview before his untimely death yesterday, Monteith told E! News that he was looking forward to getting back to work on Glee.


Even when she wasn't with Monteith, Michele always had her beau close to her heart. At Beyoncé's July 1 concert at Staples Center in L.A., she proudly pointed out to friends that she was wearing her "Cory" nameplate necklace.

At Chrysalis, Monteith talked about how important the non-profit was for helping 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. Not a handout. A help up. It's helping people do what they already can do."

Looking at Monteith on the carpet, Michele cooed, "I think he looks great, doesn't he? He's the best."

Monteith's suit matched Michele's Valentino dress perfectly. He laughed, "I guess we should have called each other first."

Earlier today, a source told E! News that Monteith was committed to getting sober.

The source said, "He would say this was his last chance."
