After being named the face of Candie’s Spring 2012 campaign, Lea Michele reprises her role for the brand’s fall back-to-school ads.

In the campaign, titled “You’re The One,” the Glee star is shot walking down the street while getting distracted by Candie’s shoes (left) — and a cute boy (below).

“I’m so happy to be a part of this brand right now [because] it’s so accessible to my fans,” Michele tells PEOPLE. “I love reading online when they’re like, ‘I’m buying this!’ or ‘Can’t wait to get that!'”

Months ago, while shooting the campaign, the actress posted a picture of herself wearing the new collection on Twitter and her followers already wanted to get their hands on the clothes. “Everybody’s like, ‘As soon as I can get that dress I want to!’ and they can because it’s sold at Kohl’s — which is available for so many people — and that just makes me really happy.”

Something else that makes her happy? The fact that the Kohl’s line did a television commercial (below) this time around. “It’s so fun because I love being able to act out and have fun,” she admits. “I love it!”

Candie’s is sold exclusively at Kohl’s department stores nationwide and on

This is a great ad and she looks great! The guy is so cute, but he is no Cory! ;)

Love this ad campaign. It’s very fun and flirty, with just a hint of sexy. I’m lusting after a couple pairs of shoes and a jacket or two. I don’t have legs like Lea’s so I can’t pull of those very dresses, but they’re really cute. Lea looks fabulous, and the guy is cute, too.

Lea looks best with Cory at her side. ;)
