A triumvirate of divas paid tribute to the Big Apple in a SummerSlam-week photoshoot (yaaay, new shoots!) and I couldn't resist a little #tbt in the title ;) ...Take a moment and hearken back to the days of Lita, Stacy, and Trish killin' it in NYC. Rapturous siiiiiiiigh. ...Ok aaaaand...moving on to some superstars killin' it in NYC right about now.
Lana kicks things off with a metallic golden mini dress. Between the unabashedly confident color and the strong shoulder silhouette, this piece has a distinctively 80's feel to it. The wide waist belt helps it still feel feminine, while Lana's choice to leave the look mainly unadorned (outside of gold hoop earrings (#That80sThingAgain :)) and a hint of brassiere showing at the neckline) helps it to not fall victim to that decade's overblown vibe. Lana also gives the look a modern spin via her gorgeous braids and fierce lace-up heels. I like her choice of white stilettos over black; they feel lighter and more summery, but still have an attitude! As usual, Lana slays the poses. She rocks "socialite", "pop star" and "temptress" as if she was born to do so. Her pinky-peachy-nude make-up palette enhances her natural beauty, without getting in the way of her portrayals. I also applaud the way she used the background in her snaps. She manages to capture the feel of the city, while still finding spaces visually quiet enough to allow her styling to shine.
Next up is Jojo, sporting a cropped moto-styled zip front vest and a pair of crazy fun holographic oil-slick leggings (Update: I initially thought these Sparkle & Fade Rainbow Oil-Slick leggings were the ones, but based on the hem,I'm leaning toward the Poprageous Oil-Slick pair. What rocks about that is...there are a few still in stock :)). I'm head-over-stilettos for these leggings; they are so super cool! Jojo added a wide waist belt to the top and while I love the extra touch of hardware that the belt brings in, I think I might have gone for a longer (possibly leather peplum ;)) top to create a similar effect but leave the main focus on that fab legwear. Like Lana, Jojo opted for white sandals. Her chunky-strap version grounds this look and provides an unexpected light-catching pop to the bottom of her look. Also like Lana, Jojo hits an absolute smash on her poses. They just might be my favorite aspect her 'shoot..like, holy wowza-ness!!! From "studied pensive" to the "over-the-shoulder flirt" to the" fierce-walk stance", Jojo rocked my world with every pose she hit here. Dear WWE, let this girl loose! There's a photoshoot-queen-in-the-making here for freakin' sure!
. Lastly but not leastly is Summer, who works a fabulous black and white look. She pairs a high-necked cutout crop top with a latex pencil skirt for a thoroughly fierce contrast in textures. Her white top is sexy, but softens the dominatrix feel of the skirt to something still powerful, but less whip-and-chain :). The look is modern, trendy and just risky enough to create the crucial je ne se quoi. If I could wish for anything here, it would be that Summer and her mirror could spend some quality time working on facials. She has two fabulous ones: her open-mouthed, occasionally deadpan, glare and her light-up-the-world smile, but a girl can't live on binary options alone. I'd love to see her play around a bit more. A smirk, a close-mouthed stare, a gentle eye-roll perhaps: these are the condiments on the photoshoot entrees of life :). I can unequivocally praise her berry lip. I totally adore that shot of color injected into this mix. And those HEELS. The cut of those shoes is basically everything. Also, there are side-tie tassels. *heart eyes*.
Final thought: the group selfies shots by all three ladies were such a jazz and perfectly captured the "girl squad having fun " vibe! And the funky golden camera definitely is in the running for the Awesomest Prop Award.
