Behind the Shoot: Shay Mitchell

Go behind the scenes of our shoot with April Cover Model Shay Mitchell!

“Pretty Little Liars” star Shay Mitchell walked into the studio ready to switch her skinny jeans and Hermes belt for patterned sports bras and Nike kicks. The 27-year-old half-marathon finisher from Canada was no stranger to our Los Angeles studio locale. She spends her free time unwinding on long runs through Santa Monica!

Queen B

Beyonce’s Pandora station blasted through the speakers as Shay danced in and out of poses through-out the day, stopping to get her hair looking as fab as Bey’s from stylist Chip Adams.

Decision, Decisions

More than 10 wardrobe changes occurred throughout the day, proving that Shay’s fashionista status extends to workout gear too. Her fave outfit? Our cover choice: Nike Aeroloft 800 Vest ($180) and Pronomadic Tight of the Moment ($130).

Lunch Break

The crew noshed on eats from Tender Greens, a salad spot down the street from the studio. But Shay brought her own lunch: hard-boiled eggs for an energy-boosting protein fix.

Pretty Big Hair

Shay posed for a hair touch-up, looking effortlessly gorg in her Nike Pro Bra ($30) and 2’’ Rival Short ($50).

Shay Selfie!

Shay sported Nike from head to toe, gushing with the same energy she felt during her first-ever half marathon at Nike Women’s in San Francisco last October. She paused to take a selfie with her makeup artist and hair stylist, showing off Nike 2’’ Epic Run Shorts ($50), Pro Safari Moves Bra ($80) and Gym Vintage Full-Zip ($55).
