The first and last time we ever purchased a pair of Candies, Jenny McCarthy was their spokesperson. But they’re alive and kicking and after moving on from Britney Spears (who famously leaked unretouched photos of her own campaign) and Fergie, the brand has just shown Vanessa Hudgens and replaced her with the slightly more family friendly Lea Michele.
E! News reports:
“Lea’s fans are the same as Candie’s fans,” an insider for the fashion brand told E! News.
Lea’s rep could not be reached for comment and Candie’s has also remained mum on the stylish new appointment, though a source told E! News that Michele will appear in a series of print ads for the company later this year as part of her endorsement deal.
We have no doubt Michele will be paid very well for the gig, which might explain how a woman who wears Marchesa and Oscar de la Renta almost exclusively on the red carpet agreed to front what is essentially a cheaper version of Nine West.
