In response to my requests for more photoshoots (ok, not really...but I did tweet a couple people :)), WWE has released this Batman v Superman-themed photoshoot, featuring a plethora of Divas. The 'shoot's photos used a background that matched that of the movie poster, with a few special-effect sparks added as well. The lighting was quite interesting, especially for a WWE 'shoot, and brought extra dimension to the pics in terms of light and shadow and a cinematic feel. There is an interesting mix of pictures gathered here. Some fit the theme quite well and some look as if they were fashion 'shoots where the Diva was photoshopped onto the background.
Lana's pic fits the latter category. Fortunately, it detracts little from the quality of the shot. Between her all-black ensemble, which pairs her trademark cropped jacket with a bodycon LBD, and her bold collar necklace (which I am pretty sure is this piece from J. Crew), her outfit is cool, polished and stylish...in other words, everything we've come to expect from our fav ravishing Russian :).
We get a couple of pics from Jojo and I really love how she used two very different looks to convey the duality between Batman and Bruce Wayne. Her leather fit-and-flare dress nods to the black rubber of the superhero, while her bold windowpane bustier -paired with slim pants- suggests the power and seductiveness of the playboy billionaire. And the differences don't stop there. She contrast flowing curls with a slicked down hairstyle, free-flying red nails with buttoned-down white and cranberry lips with warm peach. She gets serious Fierce points for putting so much effort into showing the two opposite sides of the character. Great work!
Paige has found another leopard-lined jacket to wear for us, this one a black leather moto style. She pairs it quite simply with a black semi-sheer tee and black jeans. The most superhero-y element here is her fingerless gloves. It's her character and the attitude she conveys via her poses that sell these snaps; somehow, I can ttly envision Paige as a superhero...with some anti-hero tendencies :). Can't you? Lastly, I applaud her use of an ice pink lip! It's unusual among the divas in general, but after Paige's love affair with the taupe lip, it's almost shocking to see it on her. A little shock now and then is a good thing :).
Several of the divas got head snaps only...and just a single one! Boo. That fact adds to the "photoshopped onto a background" feel. That's particularly unfortunate in Becky's case because I really like this shot of her playing with this fabulous hat! Her metallic gold top works beautifully with the officer's cap..and she is working that pose! This look really had the makings of being a great 'shoot in its own right and I'd have loved to see what else Becky would have done if given that opportunity.
I'm pretty sure Charlotte is wearing her asymmetrical peplum top from BCBG here, although it's hard to be 100% sure without seeing the whole piece. It's also hard to have much else to say about a single shot of half an outfit...#FashionBloggerProblems lol. That choice makes it feel like this snap was included just because it could be which is really unfair to Charlotte; she could have done so much more with this project, given the right timing and a chance.
The single shot head snap works out the best for Tamina because her look is all about one thing: this amazeballs hairstyle! The braids, the curls!...The color!! It's just fantastic and this shot, abridged though it is, lets us fully appreciate all the glorious detail. So, let's just take a moment and do that!
