Shay Mitchell is one of the most beautiful actresses on television right now, but her Pretty Little Liars character, Emily Fields, isn’t exactly the most fashionable — preferring jeans, sweaters and sneakers, Emily probably wouldn’t get all dolled up for prom.

But Shay would! In her Seventeen Prom cover story and photo shoot, Shay opened up about what she wore for her own prom, and went glam for her party girl photos.

For starters, who would have thought that Shay, a longtime working model, would go to prom without a date? She tells Seventeen, "I was dating my first boyfriend in high school for a long time, and we broke up before 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!”

But what did she wear? “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." See photos from Shay’s actual prom night here

As for her dream prom date, she shares the same lust-object of millions of women: “Ryan Gosling. He is so cute and funny. It's important to have a date who can make you laugh, not someone you're going to feel nervous around."
