Get ready, loves! It’s that time of year again: Silver Snap time! Every year, it is our tradition at Diva-Fierce to collaborate with all of you to choose the ONE very best photoshoot of the year from the Divas and the Knockouts and award them our Silver Snaps. This year’s polls will be up a little later this week. In the meantime, enjoy an hors d’oeurve: our Honorable Mentions for 2017, both from the Divas’ (ok, ok, Superstars…but they’re still DIVAS to us!) offerings.
Nikki sent our raves and craves into overdrive and had us re-writing our 2018 #SquadGoals with her rendition of this photo gallery of New York city night life in the Chinatown Squad photoshoot. This set is everything a fashion ‘shoot should be: jaw-dropping outfit, killer poses, fabulous background. The dark, glamorous energy of New York sets the perfect stage for Nikki’s subtly sparkling blush bodysuit and curve-kissing pencil skirt. Her embellished waist belt stole my heart, while silver accessories in the form of a ruffled clutch and ankle-cuff sandals completed the look with just the right amount of shine. I was (still am!) wild over how Nikki incorporated so many trends (blush, metallics, ankle straps, bodysuits, waist belts), while still creating a classic and sophisticated look. The styling felt both luxurious and a bit dangerous, contrasting with the downtown vibe of the backdrop, even as the color palette harmonized perfectly. Nikki slayed pose after poised, self-assured pose, giving the impression that the big, tough city is just her plaything. The images in this incredible ‘shoot are the kind that haunt our dreams …inspiration boards!
Also earning a shoutout is Becky’s impressive work in the High Oct(K)ane gallery, where her chosen outfit combined the high drama we’d expect from an editorial ‘shoot with the accessibility we’d see from a streetwear set. In echoing Kane’s nightmarish stylings via spike bracelets and a chain belt, she touched on the incoming punk trend, which worked brilliantly, feeling both appropriate and relevant. She also nailed her poses, including the historically challenging squat, cementing her place on this year’s list of top photoshoots. Kudos, Becks – we’re lovin’ it over here!
