Lea Michele, the peppy actress who plays Rachel Berry on the hit series Glee, is the newest face of Candie’s, E! News reports. Though the news has not been confirmed, a source close to the fashion brand told E! that Candie’s chose Michele because the two have a similar fan base.
"Lea's fans are the same as Candie's fans," the insider said.
Michele will allegedly appear in a series of print ads for the company later this year. Reps for Candie’s and Michele have neither confirmed nor denied the news.
If the rumors about Michele’s new gig are true, the actress is joining an elite group. Vanessa Hudgens is a celebrity spokeswoman for the brand, while Britney Spears, Hayden Panettiere, Ashlee Simpson, Fergie, and Jenny McCarthy have also been Candie’s girls.
Founded in 1981, Candie’s sells juniors’ jewelry and apparel. Lea Michele, 25, worked on Broadway as a child and rose to fame after joining Glee in 2009. The singer/actress won a People’s Choice Award last night for her role in the popular Fox series.
"Such an incredible night!,” Michelle Tweeted. “ Im so so grateful and happy:) Back at home now celebrating in PJs eating pasta with my cousin watching movies!"
