Nikki Reed is trading in her honeymoon duds for something a little more star-spangled.

The 27-year-old actress is set to play American flag-sewing Betsy Ross on the upcoming season of Fox’s Sleepy Hollow – and Entertainment Weekly has the First Look.

Reed, who married Ian Somerhalder earlier this year, looks every bit the part of the iconic figure in the newly released photos. Sporting a tight bodice dress with a full skirt, the Twilight actress completes her colonial look with a feather in her hair.

Season 3 of Fox’s supernatural drama will rewrite American history with Ross (Reed) being the only woman in George Washington’s “Culper Ring” of spies – and oh yeah, her flag will have supernatural powers to help others along the way. Bet you didn’t learn that in history class.
