Gleek chic: Lea Michele has been named the new face of Candie's.

Looks like Rachel Berry’s going to have some new shoes to sport with her white ankle socks and animal sweaters!

Glee’s Lea Michele has been named the new face of Candie’s, E! reports. The actress replaces Vanessa Hudgens, who has held the title of Candie’s girl for the last year.

Previous celebrity spokeswomen for the brand—now sold exclusively at Kohl's—include Jenny McCarthy, Ashlee Simpson, Fergie and Britney Spears.

FashionEtc has learned that the new Candie's campaign won’t launch until January 25, and don’t expect the ads to reflect the goody-two-shoes persona of her Glee character.

Michele recently defended that racy GQ photo shoot, in which she and costar Dianna Agron appeared in skimpy lingerie paired with crop tops and micro-minis alongside costar Cory Monteith, saying, “Would I do it again? Absolutely."
