Wrestlecon came to Dallas the same week as WrestleMania, so it was truly a wrestling takeover of Texas! It also brought out stars by the airplane load...which meant more fashion for us! :) Oh, darn.
Brooke showed off two outfits at Wrestlecon. The first was this wine sheath, which she paired with lace-up gladiator heels (shove over, Kendall :)). I love the warmth of the burgundy-with-caramel combo - doesn't that just sound so inviting and decadent? A lariat necklace and a pretty headband brought out the bohemian feel to this earthy color pairing. Next up was Brooke's take on the L(ong)BD, as she went with a black maxi dress, finished off with a beaded statement necklace. The look is uncomplicated, but amazing! I also commend Brooke wholeheartedly for her adorable and modest poses. I love how she's let us know about her forthcoming arrival, but doesn't make her belly the center of attention. It's refreshing and beautiful to see how's she's handled this. I didn't know it was possible to respect her more than I did previously...but I do. Very best wishes, Brooke...as always!
Also during WM week came NBC's Summer Press Day, which included Barbie Blank-Souray, wearing a stunning midi LBD. The color and silhouette of this sheath is ultra-classic, but the straps at the bodice create the impression of a sexy cutout, making it oh so modern! It's a perfect representation of the best of Barbie's style - chic, but with a dash of sass! She finished the look with au courant slim ankle strap sandals of the SW Nudist or SL Jane variety - flawless choice!
We've seen Natalya's incredible HoF dress...but did you know she topped it with a leather jacket en route to the venue? Tres cool! Even cooler is who she ran in to: Velvet Sky, who was in town for Wrestlecon. Velvet paired this graphic print tunic with black leggings for her trademark grunge-glam look. I love the flutter sleeve on her tunic - sooo pretty! Rose pink lips and nails give the whole ensemble a bright pop.
Stephanie joined Natalya at a Be A Star rally in Dallas, wearing the same Alexander McQueen sheath we saw in at the Superstars for Hope event. The dress's level of formality fits this outing perfectly: it's polished and refined. And the distinctive fabric and strong shoulder detail make it truly special! Steph finished the look with her YSL Tribute sandals.
Meanwhile, Natalya looked fabulously chic in her black monochrome outfit. She topped a basic tee-n-leggings combo with a statement peplum jacket, for an elevated casual styling. This jacket truly *makes* the look - I love how tiny details like the oversized buttons and slightly raised shoulders make it a unique, but completely wearable piece. And the silhouette is to die for! She finished the look with classic black pumps (see background of Steph's photo). This is a flawless example of how one statement piece pulls a whole look together.
We got a glance at Bayley and Sasha's looks at the NXT Takeover. Bayley chose a distinctively striped top in a forest green shade that suits her wonderfully. I'm also a fan of her make-up here - the warm, bold amber eye and pinky-nude lip is gorgeous! PS her hair looks amazing :) Sasha chose a black fit-and-flare top. I adore the simplicity of this canvas, but I'm missing her trademark touch of glam. The necklace she wore to the HoF would have been a perfect addition. Alternatively, a more intricate hairstyle could have brought that bit of spice that really made this styling cohesive.
Lastly, Charlotte wore this sleeveless sheath with a modern, sexy zippered detail. The interplay of the leather piping against the woven fabric of the dress creates interest and brings a bit more attitude. Char enhances that with her pin-straight, asymmetrically parted hair - a strong and streamlined style that suits the dress fabulously. I appreciate how much attention Char pays to her outfits and how she works to change her style up periodically. It's fun as a fan, and as a blogger, to see her keep things fresh and unexpected. It's a true credit to her vision as the division leader and a WWE representative that she's aware of such details and works them.
