Michele, who was one of the best dressed starlets at this month’s Golden Globes, follows in the the footsteps of previous Candie’s models including Hayden Panettiere, Fergie and Britney Spears.

“Britney Spears is definitely my favorite past Candie’s girl, her campaigns were gorgeous,” Michele mentioned in a statement.

She’s the “people’s choice” for Favorite TV Comedy Actress… And, Lea Michele could soon be Candie’s choice…

The 25-year-old part-Spanish Glee star is reportedly the new spokesmodel for the fashion brand.


“Lea’s fans are the same as Candie’s fans,” an insider for the company tells E! News.

Lea will reportedly appear in a series of print ads later this year as part of her endorsement deal, according to other sources.

Representatives for the singer/actress—who rocked the red carpet at the People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday—and Candie’s representatives have yet to release an official statement about the alleged contract though.

Should Michele sign a deal with the clothing company, she’ll replace Candie’s most recent spokesmodel Vanessa Hudgens.

Other previous celebrities who’ve pitched for the brand include: Britney Spears, Ashlee Simpson and Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson.

Michele has previously starred in commercials for Dove, Chevrolet, Nike and HP TouchPad.
