Shay Mitchell Covers Seventeen Magazine Prom 2012 Issue
02. January 2012
Shay Mitchell graces the cover of Seventeen Magazine for its Prom 2012 issue. The actress shares about her own prom, prom advice and more.
Shay talks about how to pick the perfect prom dress. She says, ”For my prom I really wanted to wear a bright color — something that was going to pop and stand out. [You have to think about] how you are going to shine in your photo and how you’re going to look different.”
She also confessed about how she went solo on her prom. She reveals, ”I was dating my first boyfriend in high school for a long time, and we broke up before the prom. I hadn’t met anyone else that I really wanted to go with, and my friends have always been amazing. So I went with my friends and got a million photos with them,” Shay told Seventeen.
“My dress was about $175, and for accessories I went through my mom’s closet. The earrings, bracelet and rings I wore were all hers.” Shay’s one splurge? Her shoes! “I bought nice, crystal shoes — you have to get something that makes you really excited. It doesn’t have to be expensive, but I really did feel like a princess putting my shoes on,” she explained.
She also recalls about her prom disaster. “I washed it again and we had to redo it with a curling iron. And I had to redo my makeup because of the tears! I was like, ‘I should have gotten it done professionally!’ — but my mom came through,” Shay told the magazine.
“In high school, I knew the guys, so I would have asked. Now I’m the shy girl! I see a cute guy in Starbucks and I’m like…Oh..Okay, and I walk out. But who knows? Maybe I will ask somebody on a date soon!”
