Having a Glee addiction means coming up with an excuse to stay home on Thursday nights, randomly breaking out into song, and suddenly feeling the urge to join a chorus, STAT. It also means that after years of watching Rachel Berry saunter down the halls in animal sweaters, blouses, and pleated skirts, we can’t help but automatically associate Lea Michele with these collegiate-inspired closet staples. However, for her new Candie’s campaign, the actress is ditching her TV alter ego’s prepster style for flouncy dresses, printed pants, and tons of heels. Taking cues from previous Candie’s girls like Vanessa Hudgens and Britney Spears, Lea ups the flirt factor in a big way for the brand’s Back to School ads.

The Fall campaign, which just dropped this morning, showcases Lea hitting the stores dressed in the label’s printed trousers, striped blazers, and body-con minis. Staying true to Candie’s sweet vibe, she’s kept her makeup young and fresh with pink lips and retro waves. And sure, from the looks of the ads, it doesn’t seem like the star snagged any actual school supplies on her mini shopping spree…but let’s be honest: cute clothes will beat out pencils and pens any day. The collection hits Kohl’s stores this fall, but until then, what do you think of Lea Michel’s look?
