There's a new face on FashionHap :). It belongs to Asuka, the current NXT Women's Champion. Having already earned rep in the ring as a stellar worker, the Japanese superstar is now heading toward earning a style rep as well. She wore this embellished black dress during the WWE's tour of Japan earlier this month. I love how the mix of metallic takes this dress out the realm of the classic LBD into something more vibrant and interesting. She finished it with chunky tan sandals which echo the gold tones of her dress. I could see strappy black sandals or pumps working here as well.
From a newbie to an icon: Maryse combined a bunch of familiar elements (black bodysuit, lace tights, patterned OTKs (by Isabelle Marant) and sleeveless trench), but took them to new heights via a single piece of stop-the-world-in-its-tracks jewelry. There's a better look at this piece coming in future FashionHaps, but it is a crystal bedecked bodychain and was created by DeMode Jewelry, a brand new company headed by a young Serbian designer with an amazing vision. I'm not even sure how Maryse got this piece, because the collection can not yet be shopped online. I guess when you're Maryse, you just attract things like this. Another day, another piece of crave-worthy, unavailable-to-the-public fashion. Hum-ho, NBD. ;) Maryse had the slayage in full force this month. From that ring outfit, she glided into a simple, sophisticated LBD (little blush dress ;) ), paired with Louboutin Cataclou studded espadrilles. The metallic sheen and confident attitude of the heels add just right dash of toughness to this spare, minimalist dress. Next up is a capri romper done in navy and white color blocking that takes the idea of athleisure off the street and on to the couture runways. Maryse elevated the look to something from a Gaga-video-meets-Vogue-shoot by completing it with transparent cap-toe booties. Oh. My. This is literally scaling hot and haute at the same time. I may not be able to go on after this. ... *regroups*
Ok and then this happened: Natalya. In. BALMAIN. *keels over*. There will be no future FashionHaps because Brie can not officially form words anymore. ...J/K. But ssly, I'm having trouble keeping it together. Please, please tell me this is from a future shoot?! Please! I will beg, if need be. There's this and the Maryse and amazing Renee-snippets. I'm a masochist, really...'cuz I will prob not survive reviewing such a shoot, but go on, ladies..slay me. I'm in. :) Just...Balmain. efifjdiuoyglqipojhoiuogtgn. That bodysuit (and note, there was some debate as to whether Nat should go with black or white. Imagine..two versions of this. Or maybe be safe..and don't.) And this. JACKET. #WantIt. Cropped leather? Oversized grommets? Yaaaaaaaassss. More, please.
Nattie wore another leather jacket for this meet-and-greet with Charlotte. Fortunately, I can form words about this one ;). I love the cropped length, I love the zippers. I love her cool-as-a-cucumber pairing with blue denim - that's such a classic match-up! And I love the peep-toe booties at the bottom. A sleek, fierce shoe is such a fab way to complete a strong, straightforward look like this.
Charlotte's outfit was even more casual: a deep rose heathered tank, paired with rolled jeans and her Maddye booties. I'm a fan of elevating a casual look with heels and the way this neutral shade keeps the whole look light overall is a nice touch. And aren't her heart sunnies so cute? :)
Nikki's denim-on-denim look has the fun attribute of being a play on black-and-white, due to the ultra-pale wash of her cropped denim shirt. Her bandeau, strappy sandals and au courant choker add just right touches of black to an overall bright white(ish) ;) look. It's a great way to be casual and cute. Bonus: this outfit could be replicated by knotting a jean shirt (or white/light linen/oxford) at the waist, instead of using cropped shirt. Nikki's second look - also exuding laidback vibes - is this navy maxi dress, worn during her visit to Del Mar, CA. It's rare that we get to see the 24/7-glam Nikki wearing flats! But these thong sandals compliment this dress flawlessly and cement the easy, breezy chic vibe.
Welcome to the place where wrestling & fashion join hands. #BeInspired #LoveFashion May the Fierce be with you! ;) Peace & Glitter!
Brie: shoe-lover :) fashion-lover and generally glamorous semi-dork
