She chose a sparkly gown with a daring plunging neckline for the red carpet premiere of New Year's Eve in Los Angeles earlier this week, and for an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno Wednesday night, Lea Michele went for an equally racy look.

The Glee star, 25, stepped out in a black and gold lace Emilio Pucci mini dress with a sexy keyhole design.

The frock was so short that Jay Leno even joked the hemline was the reason for her family's exile.

When he asked her about the origin of her real last name (which is Sarfati) Michele said, "It's Sephardic, which is Spanish/Jew."

"We're from Spain, got kicked out... went there, went there."

Leno then teased her: "Now why did you get kicked out? Was the skirt too short?"

It's not her first time raising eyebrows for rocking a super-high hemline. The star made news back in October when she wore a $52 lace ASOS top as a dress.
