There are a number of snaps from Wrestlemania week and events that just didn't quite fit anywhere else, so I've collected them all here into a salad of Wrestlemania fashion - with plenty of dressing (ha ha...see what I did there? :) ...Ok, yeah...it was a bad pun...but you love me for them :)). Prob about to be the tastiest salad you've ever had, right?
If you saw this and thought "Hey - Mandy and Lana buy their boots at the same place!", well....yep I had that same though too :). Mandy reminded us that she's the Gold Standard of WWE by rounding off this white crop top and blush pencil skirt combo with metallic gold ankle booties. As with Lana's outfit, these seem like a bit too brazen a way to finish the look, at least in this material. I'd love them in beige suede, though! Then again, I could totally see this color and silhouette paired with her ring gear. So, the boots themselves = yaas, the circumstances = less yaas. Minus the boots, I like the way this look works on Mandy. It fits her trendy, sexy style, without being overblown and I like the minimalist influence of the unadorned silhouettes and fabrics. As a side note, it's quite similar to the look Maryse wore for Axxess. I wonder if the French Queen is giving Mandy some style inspiration? Hmmm :)
Charlotte's cutout floral dress was her look of choice for both the Rick Flair statue unveiling and her Toys R Us meet and greet. This is a gorgeous dress, playing on the season's dark floral trend, a look that made waves in the fall and has stayed strong through the spring. The wide-ranging mix of colors in the print keeps the styling fresh and garden-y, but less starry-eyed than a light-background print. The side cutouts give an extra dash of flirty-ness, while the sheer lacy details the edge of the bodice bring an interesting extra dimension. Charlotte plays that up nicely by echoing it in her shoe choice: black ankle strap sandals with sheer fabric at the vamp. This is a wonderful summer dress than could be lightened up more with bright accessories (yellow sandals, aqua bag), as well as working its way into fall when topped with a blazer or motorcycle jacket.
Stephanie also attended the Rick Flair statue reveal and, like Charlotte, chose a dress for the event. This checkerboard print isn't my favorite per se - possibly due in part to the somewhat drab sage-gray color - but I absolutely love the way the print is used on the piece to create shape. The smaller scale in the middle accentuates the waist, while the larger rint at the bottom enhances the a-line shape and adds to the hourglass visual. So, despite my lack of excitement about the pattern, I think the piece is wonderfully conceived and a fantastic choice for Stephanie. She completed the look with one of her favorite pairs of sandals, her St. Laurent Tribute sandals in black. She also gets fierce point for the super cute braided ponytail!
Maryse created a fabulous layered effect by wearing her ivory capelet dress from BCBG over this sheer-printed sheath dress. I'm wild over the unique way she used these two pieces together - what a great way to get more out of your wardrobe! And the look is amazing; the extra dimension the underlayer adds to the cape dress works flawlessly and looks incredibly chic! She finishes this masterpiece with her Valentino Rockstud pumps and a neutral bag with a chain handle for a bit of extra edge. Equally appealing is the black monochrome outfit she wore for a business summit with Alicia. Maryse paired a simple v-neck peplum top with flowing wide-leg pants. Note the difference in the look they create compared to, say, a leather legging or a mini pencil skirt. The look comes off polished and professional. It's a crucial part of being a fashionista to dress appropriately for the occasion, whatever it may be and Maryse is a master at it! She finishes the look with a barely-visible pair of black embellished sandals that we'll be getting a better look at shortly *wink*.
Comparable to Maryse as a fashionista is Foxy, with an equal innate grasp of the right look for an event. She, too, went with an all-black look and wide-leg pants. She topped hers with a v-neck blouse as well, but added a beautifully tailored jacket and statement necklace. My favorite part of her look is the dash of quirkiness thrown in via patent leather oxford flats. That is trademark Foxy! I love how she always throws a curveball into her fashion and never lets it get boring.
What better way to end Halloween night than to come home after Trick-Or-Treating and check out diva-fierce.com's Top 7 Halloween costumes. Why seven? Idk. It's a number I like :).
#7 goes to Brooke for one of the cutest monster costumes ever. The ladies of wrestling generally go for general themes rather than specific identities, so it can be hard to stand out, but this one does! And that's especially true because it's so out of character for Brooke. When you think "Brooke", you think fierce, sexy, smoking hot. 'Cute' isn't at the top of the list. This costume lets her show her playful side and let her personality..well...run wild :D. That's a win!
#6 goes to Eva Marie for he Jessica Rabbit look. It's rare that a cartoon personality matches a reali-life look so well, but these two characters where made for each other! Jessica was a femme fatale par excellence. Eva Marie has no trouble in that department. She rocks the gloves! And,of course, the shared red hair seals the deal. Eva was born to be Jessified!
#5 goes to AJ for her Kitana costume. This is a great get-up and spot on Kitana's look. BUt what I love most about it is that its just a plain-a$$ cool costume. Even if you're one of those people (all 5 of them) who have no idea what Mortal Kombat is, this gear still looks massively cool. Who doesn't love blue metallic? Plus, we all know AJ could ttly pull off the Kitana role. Fab on all levels + picking a character that's "you" = memorable!
#4 is all about Velvet Sky's Freddy Krueger look. She nails it - right down to that hat and striped sweater! She gets MAJOR points, though, for the rips in said sweater. They add an element of the fearsome and grotesque that made this costume stand out. It's easy to associate Velvet with hotness, but really, would you want to take Freddy on a date? Umm, no. Changing up your look - from hot to horrifying - is brilliant!
Welcome to the place where wrestling & fashion join hands. #BeInspired #LoveFashion Let the Fierce be with you! ;) Peace & Glitter!
