We're kicking off this FashionHap with a little MaryseFest! First up is this LBD, which Maryse paired with statement OTK boots. Seriously, these are NOT your everyday OTK's - look at the patterning! That craftmanship adds extra oomph to this classic look. Of course, it's helped along by Maryse's super-sized chain necklace. I love the presence this type of piece has, especially when set against a black-on-black look.
From there, we're heading over to a couple of her TV appearance looks. Maryse has made her return fashion all about statement dusters, set over a curated collection of bodysuits. This black lace-up front one-piece is the under-garment for both of these outfits. The first look incorporates a piece I completely adore: a gray, lace-embellished piece with a wonderful modern-femme vibe that could swing either gothic or boho. In this case, it looks graceful and feminine, but also FIERCE, due to being layered ovr the very right-now bodysuit. Maryse's second duster has a definite glam-rock vibe. Another gray background serves to highlight shiny, patent leather stripes. It has a look-at-me! quality that makes it perfectly at home on a stage...or on a WWE catwalk ;). Maryse finishes both outifts with those killer OTKs, showcasing a skill I have long loved about her: that of re-using pieces, but still keeping them fresh!
Her final offering is a surprising one. Worn at meet-n-greets on the Euro tour, this look is comprised of a cardigan layered over plaid pants, topped with a leather biker jacket and finished with knee boots. The plaid pants really made me look twice, as I'm not used to seeing Maryse choose something this busy for daywear. I'm not sure how many more times I'd like to see them, but they work really nicely with this outfit, providing the coordinating print for a complex selection of colors. Her multi-hued scarf does something quite similar in helping to connect all the shades in this look and adds a chic dollop of panache as well.
There's a reason I talk about (and Divas' wear) LBD's a LOT; they're nearly always faaaaabulous! So, even though I see a lot of little black dresses, I was immediately caught by this look of Lilian's. It has a similar vibe to the Maryse outfit that kicked off this FH, with a few mini changes: unembellished suede OTKs vs. statement ones and a cross pendant instead of the massive chain necklace. The latter piece lends a bit of a rocker vibe to Lilian's look and works well with the pretty, slightly boatnecked silhouette of her dress. While Maryse's look comes off fashion-forward and chic, Lilian's has a certain rebel-hearted simplicity. Which one speaks to your style soul?
Stephanie has been slaying lately with her dress choices and she does it again here, with this side-embellished eyelet sheath. Navy is such an under-rated color and it's so fantastic to see Steph wear it! I love how the flush of blue lights up her skin and eyes...much more than black. That's one of my favorite things about navy - it has all the chic and practicality of black, with just a bit more brightness. Queen Stephanie's chunky-heeled platforms give this piece a 70's nudge. I love how she chose to stay with light ivory, instead of a black or nude shoe. It's an unexpected summery twist!
Charlotte's recent tv outfit is as straightforward as it gets: leather jacket, tee, denim. The detailing at the hem of her jeans is really special though an brings a cool 70's vibe to the outfit. She's finished it off with her current fave Kendall+Kylie Abi pumps. She opts for a blazer over skinny jeans for her next look, a combination I'm generally a fan of. It strikes me as just a bit bland in this instance, but that could be the photo angle. I applaud how she elevated the look with a more complex hairstyle. I'm imagining this combo finished with pointy toe pumps in a bright color (perhaps red, to match her championship belt? ;)) to spice it up!
We finish up this FH right where we began: with an LBD and OTK's, only this time, it's on Natalya. The three-quarter sleeves and higher neckline keep this dress very classic, while Nattie's choice of shiny gray leather OTKs brings a nice spark. Her high bun and half up-do are a wonderful look for her, and I especially like it paired with a simple dress such as this. The whole look strikes a nice balance between simplicity, chic, edge and joie di vivre. Does Nattie's pairing top Maryse's or Lilian's? Tough to choose? I hear ya. I can totally see myself wearing Nattie's dress (and hairstyle ;)) with Lilian's boots and Maryse's necklace. How's that for basically choosing ...all of them? ;)
