We have a bonanza’s worth of fashion to cover over the next couple of days, so hang to your fedoras, honeys! We’ve got boatloads of Bellas, and bits of so much more.
We’re kicking it off with Maria, who let out her inner Taylor Swift (did you ever think you’d see that comparison? :)) as she topped her boldly belted kabooty shorts and glittering brassiere with a sparkly bomber jacket. I still haven’t gotten over my fascination with how casually cool bombers look, even though they are literfreakinally everywhere lately and I love the sparkly girly thing of adding sequins to the look, so yes, I’m all in for this piece. I can see it restyled in SO many ways. And remember – there are those holiday things coming up soon and sparkles = yes.
This first pic I ever saw of TNA’s Allie outside the ring was an Insta shot of her during that 30 second time period where she held the KO’s title. She has on a floral-printed peplum top and I was like “whoa – this is not how I usually envision Knockout’s fashion”. She has stayed true to that not-your-standard-KO path in a second peplum top and pencil skirt combo done in classic black and paired with a bevy of pearl-like beads. Her look comes off as youthful and fun and, as surprising as it is to see this kind of subtler sultriness coming from a KO, I can’t say I’m not intrigued by it. Rock on with your classy self, Allie!
This momentary pit stop in Brooke-land is not so much a fashion review as this beautiful lady is in her unmentionables, but I had to register the screeching halt I came to when I saw this pic – like omg her body looks AMAZING. And this is just a few weeks after giving birth. Like, how does she *do* that? I’m speechless. She gives you some of her tips on her Instagram, so go check that out (@realbrookeadams). And also, I can’t help but thinking: if she can do this - after having a baby – than I have zero excuse for not working out. Less than zero.
And we get to check in with Rosa, also with her post-baby body, also looking amazing and incredibly chic as well in this black midi-length dress. I love the texture provided by the sheer detailing and the way she kept the look simple and subtle by completing it with black peeptoe pumps. You could easily make this outfit cold-weather-appropriate by topping it with a cropped band jacket or draping a long wool dress coat over your shoulders.
And now…let the Bellas begin! They covered Muscle and Fitness in September as part of their wave of promotions for the Total Bellas series on E!, which premiered on Oct. 5. The concept was simple: two hot, fit ladies donning blue and black. The execution was successful, as the twins looked just as fabulous as we would expect. They gave us two variations on the color combo. The first included boy shorts and simple sports bras, while the second paired string-accented bottoms with a squared-out silhouette top for Brie and bikini-style bottoms with a zip-front halter top for Nikki. They also switched hairstyle from refined half up-dos to loose and flowing. Strappy black sandals finished Brie’s look, while Nikki finished hers with nude peeptoe pumps. The workout gear+ heels combo may not be especially practical for actually being in the gym, but as a photoshoot styling, it is killer!
The twins next look also included blue and black – black for Brie and blue for Nikki. Nikki’s piece is a typically daring item – a lace jumpsuit from Michelle Mason (ID by fashionofthedivas.tumblr.com) which is part of her Pre-Fall ’16 collection and combines sheer and solid lace in just the right places with flowy pants. I love this chic shade of midnight blue; it’s beautiful and a touch softer than black. (If you’re wild over this piece, it is available through Net-A-Porter. Perhaps for Christmas…if you’ve been really really good :).) I don’t mind Nikki’s addition of a choker, but I think she could have gotten away without it. This jumpsuit is a statement-maker all by itself! She paired it with two different sets of heels: nude peeptoe pumps and red pointy-toe stilettos. Both complement the look equally well. Her second look is a cutout pantsuit (the Morgan by A.L.C. [id by fashionofthedivas.tumblr.com]), a refined silhouette with modern flair. This simpler piece benefits from the choker – the touch of sheen at Nikki’s neck brings in a nice touch of au courant fierceness.
Brie’s black zip-front pantsuit is from Elizabeth & James (id by fashionofthedivas.tumblr). This piece looks incredibly sophisticated, but I’m not completely sure I love the fit on Brie. That may be because it’s not meant to be a maternity piece …and yes! That does mean she’s expecting :) CONGRATULATIONS Brie & Daniel! I also sort of wish she had gone for a full up-do here; it would complement the sleekness of the pantsuit. Suede chunky-heeled mary-janes in caramel completed the look. She also paired those heels with her other look, a jaw-dropping sheer-panelled dress which is super simple, except for that one dramatic plunge-front detail. The sheer actually enhances the her décolletage by creating shadow –it’s a brillt baringiant design, with everything set solely to draw your eyes front and center. The piece is an unusually risqué choice for Brie, but she slays it. This is exactly how you do “traffic-stopping” without baring everything.
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!
Brie: shoe-lover :) fashion-lover and generally glamorous semi-dork
