Lea Michele (Rachel) is currently the face of Candie’s — having starred in both their Spring and Fall 2012 campaigns — and now the colorful, flirty clothing brand is giving back to her.

In honor of Lea’s 26th birthday, Candie’s unveiled a giant billboard featuring one of her ads in New York City’s Times Square. What’s more, the billboard is adorned with a huge pink that proclaims, “Happy 26th Birthday, Lea” for all to see.

Lea may live in Los Angeles right now, but the Broadway veteran will always think of New York City as home. Now, she can still be a part of the city, even if she’s thousands of miles away. Sounds like a pretty great present to us!
