I'm not sure who turned off the color for January, but the lady Superstars were wearing a LOT of black. I think we could have officially called it the Color Of The Month! Fortunately, they gave a ton of great variations and unique personal style with it as well, which made it certain that black wasn't in the least boring!
Alicia Fox kicked off the black trend and I'm pretty sure that her sense of style doesn't even know what the word "boring" means..or that it even exists, actually. This look is totally AMAZING. It's a clasic Foxy funky, trendy, fierce cataclysm that pairs a v-neck top with leather shorts, which is simple enough. But she takes it to a whole new level with this high-low tuxedo jacket! The piece picks up on the flowy-topper trend and I loooove the way she pairs the long coat over a shorter underlayer. She gives it casual panache sheepskin-lined mid-calf flat boots, left open with the tongue rolled down in front. The styling is super hot and utterly fierce all at once. Foxy's style = #Goals.
Maryse did her part in the blackout via the Tatiana dress ( by House of CB London, sadly sold out) LBD which got a fab twist from the studs at the shoulders and short sleeves. This is classic style, done in a classically Maryse-way: simple LBD, spiced up with tough, glittering studs for a rock-queen vibe. She keeps the look more polished than edgy by finishing it with her current favorite crossed ankle-strap pumps. I enjoy seeing her play up the sleeker side of the studwork.
Charlotte is no stranger to black and this look found her exploring the color at its most minimal: black top, black leggings, black suede OTKs. It could all be a yawn, but it isn't - because she topped it all with an of-the-moment capelet that added just enough panache to give this look distinction. Sometimes, one choice is so incredibly significant! :) I also love the way she left her blonde hair long and loose, but with body - so soft and pretty!
Stephanie gave this high-stance blazer another turn and this time, she really cranked the sizzle by pairing it with a sheer-inset top with a super-deep scoopneck. Wowza! You probably couldn't get away with this at your run-of-the-mill office, so we're fortunate that this is WWE and risky is encouraged! After that jaw-dropping moment, she takes things back to refinement by adding wide-leg pants and simple black sandals. She accessorized with crystal statement earring that I'm 100% on board for - even with the daring statement of her top, one little extra detail is perfect - it hits just the right note with its tough of shine. This was apparently as great month for hair, as well as for black - I'm loving Steph's polished ponytail! It's youthful, but confident and shows off those earrings swimmingly!
The one deviation from all this black is only a slight one: Carmella's gray distressed bodycon t-shirt dress, which gets some sultry appeal form the lace-up front. It also has some torn details near the hem, which I'm not sure how I feel about and could probably have been perfectly happy without. We don't get much of a look at her footwear, but the peek we are privy to suggests strappy ankle booties, which are a big "hell, yes!". I'm a huge fan of her fedora, as well - it's gives a fantastic artsy twist to this urban look. +1, Mella!
Maryse had fun with shoulder -details all month, as this outfit featured a sheer top with baffled moto-type embellishment. A criss-cross strap brassiere below added further interest, as did her pairing with a black pencil skirt and a double-buckled belt, which spiced the look up with a touch of shine. the real dash of sass came further down though: she finished things off with her red velvet OTKs! She also gets props for resisting the temptation to echo her boot shade with bright berry lips - this apricot shade is so much softer and sweeter! And stunning! After slaying a crimson and black version of her ring attire, Maryse took the new wider corset design into cerulean territory. The red was smoldering, this blue has icy steeliness - opposite vibe, similar result: the crystal embellished wide waist would be noteworthy at any time, but paired with her sky-blue stone-encrusted sparkling brassiere, it's jaw-dropping. If she keeps this up, I may need a hand crank to get my lower mandible off the floor.
Lana also got on the black bandwagon with this sequin sheath, embellished with gilded scrollwork. It's beautiful, but has definite gilding-the-lily vibes. I think I might have preferred a simple wool crepe beneath all that intricate metallic detail. Also worthy of mention is Lana's new shorter hair-do. While I love long hair, change is good and I'm happy she switched things up a bit. It should be fun to see where she can take this new look!
