Pretty! Shay Mitchell At The Target Neiman Marcus Launch

The Target Neiman Marcus Holiday Collection Launch Party

Pretty Little LiarsShay Mitchell looked lovely as she attended the Target Neiman Marcus Holiday Collection launch party in New York City, on Wednesday (November 28).

The actress – who went slightly edgier than her usual look – hit the red carpet in a sheer top, black and gold patterned jeans and Skaist Taylor for Target vest.

Earlier this year the 25-year-old opened up about struggling to fit in during her early years.  “I grew up in a predominantly Caucasian neighborhood, but my mum is Filipino-Spanish and my dad is Irish. All my friends had fair complexions with blonde hair and blue eyes. In high school I was an outcast,” Shay said. “I wasn’t cool to hang out with. I ate my lunch in a bathroom stall because that was the one place I could go where I wouldn’t been seen.

“Growing up, I wish I hadn’t tried so hard to fit in. I’d tell myself to just embrace what you were born with because it’s beautiful and you were made like that for a reason. It’s tough being a girl. I think we need all of the support we can get.”

But Shay hasn’t had any problems fitting in with her PLL co-stars. “I’m so close with each of the girls for different things. Trojan is my go-to when I want advice on something. She’s literally like her character—so smart. Lucy is so cute and southern. We joke around a lot on-set. And Ashley is like the fun, carefree little sister who I never had.”

Target and Neiman Marcus are teaming up to offer a gift collection from 24 different designers that will be available in stores on December 1st. The two companies will make a joint $1 million donation to the Council of Fashion Designers of America.

PLL Season 3 premieres on Tuesday, January 8, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
