Maryse gave us her best interpretation of a harajuku girl during her visit to Tokyo on Total Divas. Although I can’t imagine actually wearing it, I find the harajuku styling visually interesting – it’s so colorful and complicated that you really have to stop and analyze each aspect of it. It’s a credit to Maryse that she gives us a creditable take on the look, despite it clearly not being anything like her personal style. You have to have a real appreciation of and talent for fashion to change gears so dramatically and not have it look like a hot mess! And Marsye looks like fun personified :). He next outfit is right back in her wheelhouse with a sensual bustier and pants set. While the color matches flawlessly, the look gets a nice visual lift from the difference in texture – the smooth sheen of her pants contrasts nicely with the velvet bustier. Her high pony and key neckline combine to show off her neckline, while her neon pink nails gives the look and 80’s-referencing pop. From there, she moves on to a floral dress with a mockneck and cap sleeves combining to create a strong, visual triangle at the top. The pairing of the two elements creates the impression of a cheongsam. I love how we are seeing Maryse’s take on traditional Asian style, filtered through her own fashion sensibilities, as well as the way she shifts her look to reference her location. Ag with her previous look, her bright nails bring a joy-inducing shot of extra color.
Mckenzie was all about black in Novembers, giving us a triad of monochromatic looks. First up is a sheer-sleeved mini dress with a squared-out neckline – a universally flattering shape that I always love. I’m also in for her powerful chain statement necklace (from Lex & Sullivan), which injects a huge dose of edge into this look, contrasting strongly with the softness of her sleeves. The interplay is fabulous and effective! We sadly don’t get to see her shoes, but I’d be craving something that echoed the tough-sweet connotation: leather peeptoe booties or chain-embellished sandals. Her next look is a scroll-covered coord set from Agaci store that reminds me of a two-piece variation of the studded dress worn by a bevy of ladies in 2016. I still like the look, although I’m a little burned out with it. Her current-fave black Carrson sandals complete the outfit. Lastly, she gave us a glittering LBD with a bodycon silhouette. It’s nothing we haven’t seen before, but her gorgeous half up-do gives it interest and a bit of drama, making the look stand out. The Carrson heels are back once again to complete the ensemble.
Natalya was favoring black as well – she wore this sheer-accented midi dress from Elizabeth & James that we previously saw her wear in Nov of 2016. She’s switched up the short leather jacket for an on-trend black overcoat. And it looks just as polished and chic now as it did then.
Nikki’s sporty side was on full display in this November candid as she paired black leggings with a knotted graphic tank. The combination is solid and, although I don’t find it particularly exciting, I love the way she used the DIY knot to define her waist. Black high-top sneakers complete a look that is casual and comfortable. Next up is a velvet jumpsuit she wore while helping John promote Daddy’s Home. This is classic Nikki – sexy, trendy and breezily glamorous. I’d have loved to see the piece hemmed just slightly – that super-long length makes the look less polished, not to mention constituting a potential tripping hazard. She gave us another look that is firmly in her wheelhouse with this date night ensemble a fabulously chic pairing of a white, drapey plunge-front top that just drips 70’s glamour with flowing black suit pants. The high-waist silhouette defines her waist perfectly, which is crucial with a look comprised of multiple fluid pieces, as this one is. Classy peeptoe pumps round out this unstudied, but decidedly sophisticated outfit. I also have to say that Nikki’s choice of pose just ups the glamour quotient *heart eyes*. For the NBC Universal holiday party, she wore an off-the-shoulder dress by Opening Ceremony in one of her favorite shades of blazing red. The ruffled details add movement and femininity, as well as being spot on-trend. Nude strappy Jimmy Choo sandals accent the look. I love the way Nikki matched her black Chanel bag to her sunglasses for a more modern take on coordinating than matching her bag and shoes. This looks chic, but also fresh.
This look from Danielle/Summer was for a photoshoot for Jute Magazine and typifies the warmth and texture of the autumn. This sweater is fabulous: the rich burgundy-and-beige pairing is woven and combined in such a fascinating and appealing way, while the looped gray fringe looks both cozy and sophisticated. A pleated satin skirt provided a nice dose of shine, as well as textural contrast, making this a perfect holiday party look…or just a fun way to celebrate the beautiful palette and luxe vibe of fall. I’m drooling over her ankle-tie burgundy suede pumps that round off the look in the most luscious way! I love this look in its entirety.
