It seems like Lea Michele is getting out of her “Rachel Berry” comfort zone!
The singer is one of the endorsers of Candie’s, and in the brand’s fall 2012 ad campaign, the Glee star flaunts her thin but toned legs in a lace mini-dress with matching fuchsia heels. In another shot, she again showed off her legs in a thigh-high turquoise mini-skirt with a lively floral top. Along with the print ads, Michele will also star in her first television commercial for the Candie’s clothing and shoe brand. She said in a release:
“The idea behind the commercial is very cute. I’m walking down the street, pass by a Kohl’s store, and this amazing pair of Candie’s shoes in the window catches my eye. Well, there just so happens to be a stock boy working in the window, and while I’m staring at the shoes, falling in love with them, he thinks I’m looking and falling in love with him, but girls love their shoes, so…”
Lea might have been able to fool the stock boy, but she can’t fool anyone about her current on-cam and off-cam boyfriend, Glee co-star Cory Montieth. The couple made their relationship public last February.
Michele debuted as a Candie’s girl in January, and she joins a stellar list of the brand’s former spokesmodels: Vanessa Hudgens, Hayden Panettiere, Fergie, and Britney Spears.
I wonder if these ads are a hint for what Rachel Berry will be like in the fourth season of Glee.
