WWE recently posted a gallery of Superstars wearing kilts. All hypotheses of potential commando-going aside, there's a beauty and grandeur in these pics we don't often get from WWE 'shoots. It's the result of the incredible backdrops: wild countryside, gothic gardens, traditional-architectured cities. The scenery gives these shots an otherworldy feel that's aesthetically inviting. It's unfortunate that the backdrops, as well as the kilts, are photoshopped. The pics have an assemblaged vibe that jars the otherwise magnificent artistic expression in the shots. I think simply using brand new photos of the ladies -even with the same created backgrounds - would have enhanced these photos dramatically and possibly made them one of the top 'shoots of the year, due to the uniqueness of the "location". Note to the 'E: art os fine, but give us something real, too , please :). I have to give the styling department MASSIVE props for their role here: First: finding a deep mint tartan for Charlotte and a plum-berry one for Sasha really is quite spectacular! Nikki and Becky's red and its ilk are quite common among traditional clan colors, but the other two? Not so much. The plum is also beautifully coordinated with Sasha's gear - the color harmony is complex. the plum doesn't quite match the pink, but appears to at a quick glance, while the deeper blackberry shades echo the background of her gear and the yellow stripes of the tartan reprise the ringwear's yellow piping. It's beautifully chosen. The tartans are also a fun choice to utilize given the current popularity of plaid. Think of the color pairings: blend your black watch with emerald, or find a purple plaid and match it with pink! I'm also a fan of how most of the ladies have picked warrior-like poses or expressions; they befit the primal, tribal vibe. Becky's, in particular works fabulously well, conveying both fearlessness and doggedness. Along with her red hair, it calls to mind Merida of the Brave fable - a fitting comparison indeed.
