Claire Danes is going to help Gucci peddle the finer things in life.

The actress has signed on to be the face of the iconic Italian label's line of fine jewelry (not to be confused with its line of crummy jewelry) in a new ad campaign slated to roll out this fall.

"I am honored to be working with Gucci on their jewelry campaign," Dane said in a statement Thursday. [Creative director Frida Giannini] is a very inspiring and creative woman. Her vision is extraordinary and I am excited to be a part of it."

"She is very natural, fresh and has a carefree attitude that is reflected in the roles she has chosen," Giannini added, referring to her company's newfound muse. "Claire's sensual, confident beauty and her passionate, independent and strong character embodies today's Gucci woman."

In other model moves, Danes, 29, was seen last year grooving in a commercial for the Gap.

After taking time out from her busy big-screen career to play Eliza Doolittle in a Broadway revival of My Fair Lady, Danes is up next in the 1930s-set drama Me and Orson Welles opposite Zac Efron, Ben Chaplin and newcomer Christian McKay as the titular auteur.
