Diva Dirt Style Jury: WWE Hall of Fame 2012

Divas beware, we judge what you wear! Welcome back to an old favorite here at Diva Dirt — the Style Jury! We’ve dusted off the Diva Dirt Style Jury for this year’s WWE Hall of Fame! Which Divas looked red carpet ready and which looked like they belong in the Style Jury Hall of Shame? We have compiled all of the looks and marked them on a scale of 1-10. At the end of the scoring, we work out the combined score for each look and the Diva with the highest combined score is our winner and the Diva with the lowest combined score is our loser.

So, let the proverbial runway show begin! (Click on images for full view.)

AKSANA
Erin: From the front, the slits and sparkles remind me too much of a budget prom dress. The back is a lot more interesting, but somehow I don’t think she was walking backwards all night. 5/10
Melanie: This looks more like a prom dress to me. The color is rich and deep, but it looks almost as if she has some Christmas tinsel stuck to her dress. Points for the hair, though. Not a bad look, but not my favorite. 5/10

ALICIA FOX
Erin: The color and texture is nice, but the cut is just kind of dull. It doesn’t look like a dress one would wear to a “once in a year” kind of event. 5/10
Melanie: Gorgeous! Alicia has had some iffy years at the Hall of Fame in years past, but this year she has blossomed into the grown up, beautiful fashionista we know she can be. From the sparkly gown to the effortless-looking bun, Alicia looks grown up, sophisticated and beautiful. I love this look! 9/10

BELLA TWINS
Erin: I really hate the shortness at the front of the skirt. There’s a way to do the asymmetrical thing, but pulling the hemline practically to your belly button isn’t the way to do it. 3/10
Melanie: This dress reminds me of a mullet haircut. Long trains would look beautiful if it wasn’t for the front of the dress, which just looks mismatched to me. Sorry, girls. I think these dresses would’ve looked better with a more traditional hemline and big trains. 3/10

EVE TORRES
Erin: From the top, it looks promising, but the complete absence of a bottom half makes it look like she’s wearing a super long slip that’s peeking out from under the dress. If she lost the sheer bottom half, the dress would look so much better, albeit kind of short for an event like the Hall of Fame. 5/10
Melanie: On first look, Eve looks stunning, but when you see all of the netting compromising of much of the bottom half, it makes me rethink my stance. The top half looks beautiful and Eve’s hair looks gorgeous. I just feel the bottom half is too distracting, and she’d look much better had the skirt hemline continued to knee-length, perhaps. 6/10

LILIAN GARCIA
Erin: Simple, but effective. The cut in the back and the silver accents make a dress that’s eye-catching enough for the event, but doesn’t veer into the “cheap” territory. 7/10
Melanie: Perhaps a little simple for a big red carpet event, but having seen other Divas go too far over the top, Lilian’s dress is a welcome change. I like the silver accents. Lilian looks beautiful. 6/10

NATALYA
Erin: Classy, which isn’t a common attribute here. The all black may not make her stand out, but the neckline and drapng at the back makes the dress interesting enough for me. 8/10
Melanie: The first word that comes to mind is ‘elegant’. Natalya couldn’t look more classy and elegant if she tried. This gown looks positively stunning on Natalya and her hairstyle compliments it perfectly. 9/10

ROSA MENDES
Erin: Way too much going on here. The cuts in the dress, along with the bright color and that random headband, make it look like some stereotypical “gypsy” Halloween costume. All she needs is a tambourine. 3/10
Melanie: I like the headband – it gives Rosa a different look compared to the other Divas, and I like the color of the dress, but the big slits which show off her tattoos are perhaps not appropriate. The back of the dress, to me, looks better than the front. 3/10

TAMINA SNUKA
Erin: Doesn’t really flatter her. It just hangs there, like a hot pink one-shouldered potato sack. 4/10
Melanie: Points for the beautiful smile and hair straightened, but the dress and color don’t look too flattering, I’m afraid. Sorry! 3/10

VICKIE GUERRERO
Erin: The color is nice, and the cut’s flattering, but while the lace trim on the top looks good, around the leg slit it looks like something ironed on. Still, I’m really impressed that she found something so eye-catching but flattering and age appropriate. 7/10
Melanie: Great color for Vickie. It’s age appropriate and classy, without being too showy as if she’s trying to keep up with the young girls. Her hair and earrings look good too. 6/10

So, how did the girls score? Let’s put our scores through our highly scientific “Ensemble Classification Calculationomagraphier”® and see who we’ve deemed the winner and loser. The following is in ascending order by their calculated score:

Bella Twins: 6/20
Rosa Mendes:
6/20
Tamina
: 7/20
Aksana: 10/20
Eve Torres: 11/20
Lilian Garcia: 13/20
Vickie Guerrero: 13/20
Natalya: 17/20
Alicia Fox: 14/20

LOSER: BELLA TWINS and ROSA MENDES (TIE). It’s a tie for last place between Brie (last year’s winning look) and Nikki Bella, as well as Rosa Mendes. Lo siento, ladies!

WINNER: NATALYA. Natalya proved that an LBD (little back dress to those not fashion-inclined) is perfect for any occasion!

    The Bellas’ dresses would have been gorgeous if the bottoms were full length with a slit up the side. The colors suit them, but the design is full-on tacky prom dress.

    Same thing goes for Eve. Thicker straps in a halter style, with a full bottom and a slit, and she would have looked like a goddess. Change the hair to, because it doesn’t flatter her face shape at all.

    Yaaay it’s back. You should also do Style Jury for the Photoshoot of the Month pictures.

  • Jhonmarco

    I was only feeling Natalya’s dress here. Everyone else was either a mess or just meh.

    The bella dresses we’re beautiful in my eyes.

    Natalya looked the best. Alicia and Rosa looked cute. As for Eve I’m disappointed. She ususally dress so nice.

    I miss Maryse on this type of posts

  • StraightEdgeGirl84

    Nattie was the most beautiful of these choices. However best dressed goes to Lita who looked stunning far better than the younger chicks hovering around.

    I only like natties,alicias & rosas…..

      Same here!

    This was a huge mess.
    The divas have some of the worst formal fashion sense I’ve ever seen.
    Get your priorities straight.

      So we’re clear:

      When the Divas come out looking fab, they are flamed relentlessly for not making wrestling their focus but when we don’t like what they wear, they don’t have their priorities straight.

      Gotcha.

      Personally, while I don’t care for the style of some of the gowns, most of them are what’s in & they wore them well. The Bellas looked amazing in dressed that flattered their figures & showed off some killer leg. I wouldn’t personally be caught dead in a mullet dress but it worked for them. Same with Rosa, loved her outfit but I wouldn’t wear it myself. When critiquing an outfit, your personal feelings on that style should be put aside in favour of how the cut, color, fabric, etc looks on the wearer.

    I only seem to like Alicia and Nattie here. The other girls look like they’re going to homecoming or senior prom. Alicia looks gorgeous and natural while Nattie looks classy and elegant! Eve looks gr8 too, im feeling her dress but i dont like the bottom bit. Im not really feeling the Bella’s dresses while Tamina looks beautiful but her photoshoot seems so vague.

  • mahsitti

    Eve (ghastly prom dress) and Tamina (unflattering maternity dress) had the worst outfits imo. Natalya and Aksana’s were my favorites, while the rest were just okay. I didn’t think the Bella’s or Rosa’s were *that* bad.

  • WWFoverWWE

    It was a hot mess for the divas fashion wise.

    • https://twitter.com/#!/StephMCK2 StephMC

      A lot of these girls look uninspiring! I just like Nattie here!

  • Faye

    Damn, they really downsized from last year, didn’t they?

    It’s true, for the most part, the Divas looked like high school clowns. I liked Natalya’s choice of dress, but I didn’t love it. Alicia looked wonderful! I loved the loose bun & the dress was cute on her. I wouldn’t be caught dead in it, tho.

    Although this was a formal event, I thought Rosa’s dress kicked ass! So what if her tattoo was visible? It’s a part of who she is, and let’s not pretend that the WWE is “pristine”, tattoos come with the territory. I thought it was cool that she didn’t abide by the boring dress-codes of these formal gatherings. As well, the headpiece was adorable! ME WANTE. I loved her shoes. Go on, girl. Get it!

  • Anthony

    I know I may be in the minority here, but I thought Eve looked incredible.

  • redsandman99

    Natalya looked the best to me. Eve’s dress had potential until I saw the bottom.

  • MomoMufFinSsFTW

    For me The Bellas,Rosa,And Natalya were the best, but all were ugly except rosa imo

  • Kessuki

    Natalya could wear that to any other award show and get thumbs up – she looks good. the rest need to have a word with themselves. lol

  • Blowbangfan

  • RayneWoman

    They could have worn better dresses. A lot of the other divas were missing from this shoot. Where’s Beth? Where are the Funkettes?
    I liked Natalya’s dress here just like everyone else.
    Rosa, Rosa, Rosa….whatcha wearing gurllll???
    The Bella’s dresses look like prom dresses here.

    Natalya looks so gorgeous in the dress. She’s my best dressed. I agree with you guys about the Bella’s dress. I did like the way the dress flew in the wind while they walked during the ceremony though. Besides her hair, I really dont like Eve’s look. At all. I think she’s channeling Vegas showgirls a little much with her recent choices. Its not really working for her. I do like her new wrestling attire! Overall I felt like the girls’ choices for the event were very casual or prom-like. The only one who truly rocked it was Natalya.
