Lea Michele is regularly seen hitting the red carpet in designer creations. But it seems she is not above donning some budget threads too.
The Glee star appears in a brand new campaign for Candies, looking adorable in the retro-inspired collection for next season.
Proving she can model as well as she can sing, the 25-year-old is seen in artfully clashing prints, leaning against a bicycle in a striped jacket and polka-dot jeans.

Regularly seen in labels like Armani, Victoria Beckham and Carolina Herrera, she is going for a sophisticated look befitting of an A-lister.
