Audrina Patridge: from TV screen to "insane" billboard

Audrina Patridge can be found on Hollywood's Sunset Boulevard on an "insane" billboard sporting a black two-piece.

She says it was insane seeing herself on a huge billboard for her latest Bongo campaign.

"It's gigantic. It's so big. When I saw it, I was like, 'Oh, my god, that's way up close and personal,'" said Patridge to People magazine.

"I'm so appreciative of it. I never in a thousand years thought I'd ever be up there. It's insane, but it's amazing."

25-year-old brunette's, who is the face of the denim brand, advertisement showcases one of the label's new bikinis.

"It was really about promoting the brand's spring and summer lines. Bongo has bathing suits now, which they've never had in the past. I think they really wanted to promote that, and since I'm always in a bikini, it just kind of made sense. It was an amazing shoot," explained Patridge.

"I love Bongo. My mom used to wear it in the '80s. It's been around forever. They have all kinds of apparel, as well as accessories. The clothes are actually cute. I don't like to just slap my name on something. I like to be involved. I need to like the product, otherwise I'm not going to represent it," she said.

Patridge is excited to be promoting Bongo's first ever swimwear line.
She took to Twitter to encourage everyone to get it:
"Get my party look! To enter, just Follow @ and tweet: 'I want to rock 's @ look! ,'" she tweeted.

Former Hills star now gets her own VH1 show: Audrina. It premiers in April. and follows "the quiet beauty's low-key life with her family," said MTV Remote Control Blog.

"Ultimately, this is the story of a young woman with dreams, goals and ambitions all put through the no-BS filter of her family," said Jeff Olde, Network Executive.
