This Is Why Lucy Hale Doesn't Have Snapchat
The 26-year-old actress is just one of many in the young Hollywood crowd trying to navigate the pressures of having a private life in a social-media-savvy world: "I just have to set a boundary for myself."
Lucy Hale will watch your snaps, but you probably won't see the 26-year-old actress and country-music singer "face swapping" anytime soon.
"I have one [to] just play with filters,” explained the Pretty Little Liars star of Snapchat, which quickly is becoming the hottest app celebrities use to engage with their fans. During Nylon's Young Hollywood bash held at Hyde in West Hollywood on Thursday evening, Hale said, "I already do so much social media, and I feel like, with Snapchat, I would go overboard and get too obsessed." (She currently boasts 13.7 million followers on Instagram and 5.05 million on Twitter.)
Though the actress, who donned a white eyelet-lace Sachin & Babi minidress and metallic Brian Atwood pumps for the event, does admit it is "really entertaining" watching other people’s silly snaps, she explained, "I just have to set a boundary for myself."
Lip Kit creator Kylie Jenner also hit the fete with sometimes-partner-in-crime and sister Kourtney Kardashian's ex, Scott Disick. The two skipped the carpet, but hung out with Jenner’s friends at a back booth in the hotspot. When it comes to social media status, Jenner is a pro, but she recently admitted that she doesn't always show her true colors to her 60 million-plus Instagram followers and 15 millon-plus Twitter fans.

"I don't know who Kylie Jenner is," the 18-year-old reality star divulged earlier this week in video posted to Snapchat, explaining that she doesn’t typically speak much on her social media platforms because it makes her "vulnerable."
Jenner’s pal model Shaun Ross also hit the BCBGeneration-sponsored soiree. When asked what he feels the difference between young and old Hollywood is, the 25-year-old told Pret-a-Reporter, "Young Hollywood doesn’t always embrace old Hollywood, and we really have to embrace those that paved the way for us."
Modern Family co-stars and wingmen Nolan Gould and Rico Rodriguez were among the other boldfacers that stopped by the event. A fan went up to the pair at the end of the night to commend the actors on not becoming child stars who have gone off the rails. Gould joked back, "We haven’t — yet. But thank you!"
