It was a weekend of play for Pretty Little Liars’ Shay Mitchell. On Friday (June 28) she and a friend attended Beyoncé’s performance at L.A.’s Staples Center.
Holding up merchandise she says via Instagram, “Booyah. @iamjessicagomes and I are excited beyond words about our new @Beyonce tee’s !!! #MrsCarter”
She also modeled her look for the show. She writes, “Going to see @Beyonce !!! sunnies- @karen_walker , tank- #ovo , pants- @juicycouture , heels- @officialzara , clutch- @alexanderwangny #wiw #ootd”
On Wednesday (June 26) Shay posted a photo of herself at her Elle Canada cover shoot. The Huffington Post Canada also got to interview the actress.
On her transition into the limelight she explained, “It’s still really crazy. I walk down the street in Yorkville [in Toronto] and the restaurant/bar where I used to do bottle service — I remember it, I see myself hustling on that little patio. It’s really cool to then come back here and see my cover [of Elle Canada]. It’s just really cool and it’s been such a blessing from the show to get to do all these things that I’m doing and have all these experiences. It’s really fun.”
She also shared the best advice she ever was given.
