Shay Mitchell is gracing this month’s cover of Esquire Philippines, and she looks beautiful! Donning black lingerie, the Pretty Little Liars star shows some skin in the black-and-white cover. Check it out!

“So excited to be on the June cover of @esquireph shot by @yutsai88 ! Such a fun shoot with the team@davenmayeda & @beautybyrokael styled by@sophiabanksc,” Shay captioned the gorgeous photo of the magazine cover. The international magazine dubs her “The Sexiest Woman Alive” — and we couldn’t agree more!

The ultra sexy black and white cover also features quotes from inside the magazine, including one from Shay. “When she talks more about her passions and philosophies, she becomes more fierce, more curt, less polite. It’s very sexy.” Is she chatting about her on-screen counterpart Emily Fields? Because those insights totally apply to the decisive, independent character who has seen such growth over the last four seasons on Pretty Little Liars. Or might she be talking about someone else? There are so many cool, powerful women who fit that description. We suppose we’ll have to check out the magazine to find out!

It’s pretty cool to see Shay on the cover of a Filipino magazine. Shay was born and grew up in Canada, but her mother emigrated to the country from the Philippines when she was 19 years old. Shay has since visited the country on both vacation and for work. In 2012, she was there to promote the third season of Pretty Little Liars, telling Yahoo! Philippines, “I know people here are so amazing and I just can’t wait to explore.” The Philippines has since started adapting their own version of Pretty Little Liars for TV. Very cool!

What do you think of Shay’s magazine cover? Who do you think she’s talking about in that quotation? Sound off in the comments below!
