There's always room around here for some gear-love and we're celebrating the MITB ring-ensemble stylishness with this FashionHap.
Charlotte kicked things off with an amethyst version of her Wrestlemania look. I love this color combination just as much! It's luxe and oh so beautiful, visually cohesive and artistically stunning. Char has a talent for choosing colors that work brilliantly, both on her and within the backdrop and it's in evidence again here. And this gorgeous design is just as compelling as in its previous variation.
Lana wore a magnificent blue and silver attire that she gave us a chance to break down in-depth in her Slayed By The Blue photoshoot here. When her in-ring skills catch up to her fashion skills, she is going to be a devastating competitor :) I can't wait!
Carmella literally floored me with this look! I was wondering what she was going to do to turn her Staten Island Priciness look into something special for MITB and did she ever deliver! The metallic mint and ice green was a surprising and aesthetically appealing choice that I instantly loved -even before I realized the pattern was made from money. Omg -so brilliant! It has that designer vibe that has been so prevalent lately of making a beautiful-looking print out of a whimsical pattern. In addition, it's utterly befitting of her character. The black printed waistband was another designer nod that felt appropriately street-worthy, as did the sports-bralette styling of her top. She completed the look with white sneakers that were a perfect finish. Magnificent job!
Becky has the right idea with the medieval-warrior direction her look is taking. It just seems to be taking a bit to come to full fruition. From Chandra Nalaar to Ygritte-meets-Angel Dust with a dash of Merida, she seems like a concoction of lovable fighter characters that just needs that one ingredient, that unifying conceptual direction to crystallize into the one true Becky. This wide-belted leather trench is a flawless example of the good. It's medieval, yet modern, tough but with a swirling yin power that makes her look like a warrior queen.
The alt-colored camo onesie beneath is somewhat less successful, partly because of its complexity as a backdrop. I'd rather see her go with something simpler, but perhaps turn that waist belt into a trademark piece, a fashion amulet and emblem of her power. Wool, leather, metal and hardware are her materials, the deeps greens of forests, earthen browns, mystical black-blues and the grays of rock formations are her colors. They embody the raw strength and joyous life force that she brings to the game. Now, she just needs to assemble them into a cohesive expression of herself.
Naomi's newest iteration of gear is another gem. This time, the piece is done in simple, iconic black and white, with the glorious neon yellow accent being reserved for the piping, armbands, shoulder detail and waist belt. The slick contrast of the black and white highlights the glowing yellow in a striking way, while the lightning design represents her character concept perfectly. As always, she's done her hair color to coordinate, which I adore! This is another fabulous variation of a stellar concept and execution!
Tamina and leather always go well together, so it's no surprise that I'm a fan of her latex-embellished corset vest. The simple statement of the piece is offset by the awesome texture of her cutout top below. The sliced pattern not only echoes the cat-scratch distressing of her jeans but also gives a modern, urban attitude to her outfit. I love the way it transforms what could be a very plain black monochrome ensemble into something compelling and engaging. Props! Her smooth, sleek hair works in harmony with the dark, un-fussy vibe, as do her smoky eyes can cranberry lips. This is a total yaaas look for her!
