Hot on the heels of a pair of KOs group shots, we get a massive collection of snaps of nearly every Knockout, with one pic apiece..except Jade, who wrangled two ;).
Allie kicked things off with this sweet shot, in the same look we saw her in when she accompanied Maria about her business back in September. This time, she's accessorized the black peplum top+pencil skirt look with a pretty flowered statement necklace instead of pearls. I'm wild over this color - it makes me think of summer! And this necklace would spark a casual turtleneck and jean just as well as it does this pairing. I wonder if she echoed it with peach heels? ;)
Next up is Sienna. This is the first we've gotten to see of her in photo and I'm not quite sure what to make of this leather and lace melange of a look. It kind of gives me goth-hot-mess vibes - especially with the addition of the feather boa-collar, but I'm happy to wait and see what else she has to offer. Maybe it will make her style intentions clearer. I love the white block streak in her hair -the look is distinctive and super cool! I'm also loving her brandy lip shade!
And speaking of Brandi :) (nice segue, huh? :)), she gives us a peek at her ring gear, done in spectacular white, with a shimmering snake appliqué. For anyone who wondered why I chose the basilisk for her in our Fierce Beasts feature, this was my inspiration. I'm curious as to why she chose this unique symbol and what it means to her. Maybe she'll blog about it someday and tell us! This shot is simply fabulous - Brandi's pose, the classic juxtaposition of black and white. I love everything about it , right down to her gorgeous half up-do. I would happily take a whole 'shoot of these.
And then we come to Rosemary, who is very unique! She reminds me of a throwback to characters like WWE's Ariel and Katarina Waters' Winter persona for Impact. Her look is vampire-grunge and seems to have a lot of theatricality involved. It makes it a challenge to apply as street fashion (but I'll see what I can do ;)), but it's still wicked fun to enjoy. The red and black combo does its job flawlessly and the boots+dress pairing is an interesting combo. The modern dress with the almost-Victorian boots feels a little offbeat, but if you re-imagine this concept through the lens of McQueen, it's easy to see how it could work. Then again, this could totally go early-Hole too, so we'll see where she takes it. Should be a wild ride!
The Lady In Purple is Raquel, who is looking very Maryse-esque in her zip-front bodysuit with glittered brassiere. She does the strappy connector and a collar as well - although I think I'd prefer those in matching fabric for aesthetic purposes. If I leave aside the Maryse comparisons, this look is modern and sexy, and very fitting for Impact. She gets a couple of bonus points for the fun purple hair!
Jade's gear has gotten so awesome since her Dollhouse days! She's consolidated all the crazy into a few select color pairings, standardized her seductive keyhole top and added a chevron waist to her pants. All of this is complete fantasticness (Yep. Made a word. Deal.). The black cropped hoodie vest is a nice twist of an accessory to bring in as well.
And, last among our blue and purple people, is Laurel, who pairs a bralette top with belted kabooty shorts in a look that gives me strong Michelle McCool vibes, especially with her blonde hair. This pale aqua shade is amazeballs and the white piping really sets it off well. She gets props for the nailhead stud details and major fierce points for her "Shhhh" pose, which is at once intriguing and unique. And hot. :) I'm really impressed with how polished Laurel's gear is for a new debutante..and that makes me really excited to see more of both her in-ring work and her fashion!
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!
