Lucy Hale Talks Hosting Fashion's Night Out
Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale is hosting this year's Fashion's Night Out at the Beverly Center in Los Angeles on Thursday, and she told The Insider's Brooke Anderson that she is flattered by the opportunity.
"I don't think I've ever been to a fashion show, so to host one to get to host one is quite exciting," Lucy gushed.
Fashion's Night Out launched in 2009 originally for the purpose of celebrating fashion while restoring consumer confidence. Due to its huge popularity, the event has continued in cities across the country.
"It's going to be a great night for everyone involved," said Lucy.
It's been a great year for the 23-year-old actress as she was also able to star in Jackson Harris' music video Come Back Down to Earth.
"That was like a dream of mine growing up," said the Tennessee native. "[Jackson] was actually a friend of a friend and he watches the show and is a fan of the show and asked if I'd be in it, and I was like, 'Absolutely!'"
But pretty soon Lucy's not only going to be starring in music video -- she'll be making her own. She recently signed to Hollywood Records to put out a country album next year.
"It's the music that speaks to me, it tells a story. And I think it fits with my lifestyle and what I want to speak about and what I want to say to people and it's been very fun so far," she said about why she chose the country music genre. "This is what I've wanted to do since I was 15 years old and the timing wasn't right until now, so to actually get to do it is pretty awesome."
Lucy also shared that she's co-writing almost every song on the upcoming album, which is tentatively scheduled to release in the spring or summer of next year.
"I'm 23 years old so I've experienced love, I've experienced heartbreak, and experienced going out and having fun with my girlfriends," she said. "So it's just sort of an introduction of who I am and the things that I've gone through so far, and I just hope that people can relate to it."
