After regaling us with a selection of can't-unsee-that sweaters, WWE redeems itself somewhat by releasing a gallery of Bella Twins shots. Some are golden oldies revisited, perhaps my favorite of which is a BTS from the twins' day of frolicking atop a piano in a collection of lovely neutrals. Tidbits are here from their somewhat risque carwash 'shoot, their cowgirl's celebration of the American West and several gear 'shoot outtakes. In addition, some new snaps have been added, including Nikki's turn as a NASA astronaut, which, though not especially fashionable, is visually impressive. he complex, metallic silver spacesuit is one of the few outfits which truly shines (no pun intended) against a plain black background and her poses are dynamite! In a similar vein is the NASCAR-themed snap. It's well-designed and, because of the simple color scheme, works successfully, despite the complexity of the ladies' outfits and the backgrounds (sponsors are great for competing, but no so easy to make aesthetically pleasing ;). Other fun new pics include several shots of Brie and Nikki in brighty colored oversized hoodies with massive sunglasses in neon shades and brightly colored thigh-high socks. While these again don't do a whole lot for my desires as a fashionista, I appreciate the fun use of color and the twins' unique and glamorous poses which, by acting as a counterpoint to the casual fashion, bring a lot more interest to this artistic endeavor than if they had gone with more staid ones. They continue to show their love for casual glamour in a classic black-top + denim 'snap. While this looks like an unreleased item from a couple years ago, the fashion choices are excellent. Their matching black bustiers are gorgeous and the pairing of the more formal top with casual denim succeeds brilliantly. Brie spikes hers with a chin belt, while Nikki opts for a flower-embroidered piece. She completes her outfit with strappy sandals, while Brie goes for fierce peeptoe patent booties. Both looks are A+. The twins score equally well with a more casual iteration of their style, in which they rep their WWE t-shirts, Brie in her red "Brei Mode" piece and Nikki in her black "Fearless" tanks. Nikki adds suit pants with a slightly formal vibe to her look, and then reiterates the casual feel with a baseball cap. The fit her of pants appears to be slightly off - which may be just a function of the camera angle. I think it disrupts the look a bit, though and I would have loved to see her try a belt here. I applaud her, though, for trying this pairing and pushing boundaries beyond leggings and denim. It's a much needed exploration and I hope she does more of it! Brie's outfit works a better, but doesn't take the same risks. She pairs her teewith jeans and adds a red plaid button-down tied at her waist, as was her wont in this latest style era. A bold pendant and a red headband complete her simply stylish look with classic Bella chic.
