After tweeting her gratitude to fans for their support following Cory Monteith's death, Lea Michele was spotted out for the first time in Los Angeles, Calif., on Sunday.

The brunette beauty was snapped by photographers while in a car with a female friend. She had dark sunglasses on but seemed to be carrying on a conversation, keeping her composure. A closeup of the photograph reveals Lea also wore a necklace that spelled out Cory's name.

Monteith was found dead in his Vancouver hotel room on July 13 from what was later determined to be a lethal mix of heroin and alcohol. His body was cremated following a private viewing with his family and Michele.
