In case you still were hesitating or unsure about whether you truly, madly, deeply NEED the Impact Knockouts 2016 calendar, the Impact Wrestling Instagram page has showcased a few more shots from it. And it looks like it is everything we guessed and dreamed it would be: HOT pics, killer neon colors and fab shots! Madison rocks a lime green bkini top paired with a barely-there purple swim skirt. Rebel makes her presence known in a foil-print string top and cute turquoise bottoms. Jade goes for some of her coolest fashion ever: a shimmering monokini paired with a jaw-dropping pair of strappy booties..oh my! Love those! Christy shines like the sun in a yellow bikini paired with print bottoms and rocks a bunch of gorgeous jewelry (that's how you layer necklaces, folks!)
OK ..let's talk fashion, shall we? We've done some catch up on Divas' past, a lil' 'shoot review...now in-front-of-the-lens style.
We're in a serious dearth of anything KO's, other than matches atm, but let's not forget about Christy Hemme's fantasmic style! She did the announcing at Bound For Glory earlier this month in this keel-me-over gorgeous sequined lace one-shoulder gown that looks like it might be from Mac Duggal. Everything about this gown is flawless: the cut, the color, the fabric! And Christy went minimal on the accessories, letting the piece stand on its own -brilliant! I love how when Chrusy gets a chance to make a statement, she takes it and runs with it! Remember my whole blathering about finding excuses to wear gorgeous pieces? Here's a How Its Done 101 lesson.
We change up style gears dramatically when we move on to Natalya's look from Buffalo. She's taken her trademark chic style and added a very glam-tinged street aesthetic to it. One of the things Nattie does best is to metamorphosize her look without losing the core of her style and we see a great example of that here. She's paired this chic sheer-paneled LBD with nude cap-toe pumps. In her "Pure Chic Era" circa late '14-early '15, she's have left it at that, or topped this look off with a blazer. But here, she goes with a fringed leather jacket, which gives the look a totally different feel - much more mod, much more attitude, with a big dose of the 80's. See how much one small change can do for an outfit? Oh the glories of fashion! :)
I always have my eye out for outfit inspiration and Knockouts' and Divas' photoshoots are a great place to get ideas! That's not saying that you have to copy what they've done exactly. It's more fun to just play on a riff, to rhapsodize on the premise of what the ladies have done. So, the Inspiration Board will give you a bit of both: the inspirational pic and a season-appropriate ensemble that you can copy or be inspired by in turn.
Welcome to the place where wrestling & fashion join hands. Inspiration. Reviews. Musings. Retros. FASHION. Covering and craving gear to gowns since 2011. May the Fierce be with you! ;) Peace & Glitter!
