NEW YORK, N.Y. – Lea Michele is moving from a locker to a much bigger closet. She’s the star of the new Candie’s ad campaign, dubbed “Hanging at Home,” shot at a private mansion in Beverly Hills, Calif. The images show her poolside, in the kitchen, in a bed with satin sheets and in a walk-in closet, wearing a new outfit and pair of shoes in each one.
The 25-year-old star of “Glee” is following in the high-heel footprints of former brand spokeswomen Britney Spears and Fergie, among others. Michele says she particularly liked Spears’ old ads. “I think they’re fun and flirty and show off her body great.”
Michele does a little showing off here, too, with some sexy poses, some silly poses and some glamorous ones.
Anyone who has seen Michele do a turn on the red carpet knows she has her moves down for the camera.
She has become a “get” for designers eager to show off their gowns on a hot young starlet. At the recent Golden Globes, she wore a silver Marchesa gown that was straight from the runway.
Her sentimental favourite gown, though, was probably the one she wore to her first Globes in 2010: a black, strapless Oscar de la Renta with a full skirt.
