Every week, following WWE.com and TNAWrestling.com’s photoshoot updates, we’ll take a look at the newest Diva and Knockout shoots and give you the opportunity to voice your opinions on them in a feature we lovingly call Unwrapped. Let’s unwrap this week’s eye candy, featuring Brie Bella, Beth Phoenix, Melina, Nikki Bella and Tara:


The Bella Twins & Melina
It’s a rather unimaginative salute to Cinco de Mayo, but the Bellas and Melina, three Divas of Mexican descent, have joined forces for a photoshoot, donning the colors of the Mexican flag. The main gist of the shoot is that they’re all together, showing their Mexican pride in green, red and white. They’re all wearing flowers in their hair too, seemingly a trick Melina picked up from the Bellas. I suppose I should be glad that there’s no silly props to be seen, but I still think they could have done more, maybe with the setting, to do full justice to the liveliness and spirit of Cinco de Mayo. Even so, the women all look great, and if nothing else, this shoot serves to represent a measure of diversity that’s present in the WWE.

Beth Phoenix
Abound in neutral colors, Beth is posing in a tight gray dress and black boots while in front of a steely background. This color scheme suits Beth really well, her blonde hair popping against the gray. Her poses are friendly and relaxed, just diverse enough to be interesting. The color scheme helps to tone everything else down visually and pulls everything together. For instance, her sexy dress, skin tight and strategically cut on the chest, looks a lot more chic when placed against a gray background and with black as the only competing color. That’s not to say that Beth didn’t do her fair share towards making this photoshoot great, but it goes to show you how much just a choice of color can do.

Melina
Posing on her own this time, Melina is bucking the norm, so to speak, wearing a billowy skirt. The outfit as a whole is beautiful and classy, something that you don’t see too often in the wrestling world. It pulls off a mean feat too: not only does the outfit cover up a good deal of her, but it looks good doing so. It doesn’t overwhelm her or look matronly, even compared to the skimpy attires we see so often on WWE Divas. The taupe and navy blue look great together (though some might decry the top and shoes as being too matchy-matchy), and Melina looks very down to Earth, playing her her skirt, lounging on the floor and smiling sweetly. It’s not a photoshoot that fits with her character by any means–heel Melina would probably sooner sneer at you than smile–but I can’t help but love a photoshoot that manages to make a Diva look down to Earth, classy and stylish at the same time.

Tara
Now here’s a photoshoot prop I can get behind. Tara’s posing with a stylish motorcycle, one that looks almost as tough as she does in her leather and fishnets. Tara pulls off some interesting poses on the motorcycle, riding it and lying against it. I can really appreciate this photoshoot for its use of a prop that actually serves a purpose and has something to do with the woman posing with it. Tara looks right at home with the motorcycle, and unlike most models you see posing with gigantic motorcycles on those magazine covers, she actually looks like she can ride it. The photos do a lot, from showing off Tara’s sick physique to the beautiful details on the motorcycle. I just wish there were more of them. I know, I know, I always make this complaint with TNA photoshoots, but I don’t think it would’ve hurt to give us a few more shots of that pretty motorcycle and its rider.
