Diva Couture: Champions of Style 2012

divacouture Another year has come and gone which means a year of Diva and Knockout outfits have flashed across our screens. We saw it all this year, from feather headdresses to sequined bras…there were many fabulous and interesting outfits. Who were the fashions icons of this year? Here are my picks for the best dressed of 2012.

EVE

Eve Torres: Eve took on a whole new character this year. She went from everybody’s favorite athletic and friendly girl to a woman who would use any man to get what they want. I’m not going to lie and say I didn’t love every moment of it. Eve began wearing more detailed ring attires at the beginning of 2012 and ditches that tacky “BELIEVE” necklace she used to wear (THANK GOD). She really caught the attention of male viewers in a blue top she wore during an angle with Zack Ryder. At Wrestlemania, Eve debuted a sexy silver and black outfit complete with some heavy duty make up to finish off the perfect look.  And of course, everyone’s favorite new Eve look this year. Glasses. Eve in glasses. I loved every second of it.

 

GAIL KIM

Gail Kim: 2011 saw the return of Gail Kim to TNA. Last time we saw the Korean beauty in TNA she wore flowers in her hair and mini-skirts. Yeah, that look wasn’t going to work this time. Kim began to wear lots of lace and leather outfits, which were perfectly paired with her attitude. I would not mess with any woman who walks around in a leather top. Let’s not forget Gail’s best accessory for most of this year, the Knockouts Championship. I don’t think any Knockout wears it better.

 

NATALYA

Natalya: Many often forget how stylish Natalya really is…except those of us who follow her on Twitter. Have you SEEN the pictures of the shoes this girl posts? One thing I really admire about Natalya is that she’s taken her love of fashion into her ring attire. Ring attire doesn’t have to look like spandex or boring and that’s something Nattie gets. She’s debuted countless new outfits this year and every one of them is mesmerizing. I think it’s about time Nattie got something pink and silver to match all these outfits though. I’m thinking something butterfly shaped. Trust me, it won’t look as gaudy as I’m making it sound.

 

KELLYKELLY

Kelly Kelly: Sure, she only has a handful of appearances in WWE this year but fashion was, this was Kelly’s best year. I loved every outfit I’ve seen her in outside of the WWE ring, especially her gorgeous green dress she wore on Extra where her Wrestlemania match was made official. Her Wrestlemania attire was something new and different, I loved it (okay, maybe it just looked a lot better than the crap Maria Menounos was wearing). Although, Kelly is no longer in the WWE she’s still continuing to be a stylish woman in her own life. She’s even ditched her signature blond locks for a gorgeous new brunette look. Keep up the great fashion!

 

ALICIA

Alicia Fox: I have a soft spot for Alicia Fox. Sure, not everything she wears is exactly fashion. Sometimes, it actually looks kind of scary. But you’ve got to love this girl. Why? Because she takes risks. She will try something unconventional almost all of the time, and it actually pays off more than you’d think. I loved her themed outfits this year, such as her sailor outfit or her skeleton ring gear. She brings her wild personality into her outfits.

Those are my picks for this year’s fashion icons of the squared circle. Do you agree with my picks? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below!

    I totally agree about Eve. She has had amazing fashion sense this year plus I truly beliEVE she should have been named Diva of the Year. I hope her new ring gear color will be purple.

    I also think Kaitlyn should have been added to the list. Her ring gear has Come a long way from that multi-colored crap she used to wear in the beginning of 2012 on NXT.

  • velvelove

    Gail & Alicia

  • theprincedann

    Velvet Sky has new attire since her return and I like it lots more. I think Aksanas catsuits are great too xD

    off the list, I’ll agree most with Gail, I’ve loved her attires this year, especially the lace tops.

  • BillyGP

    Kelly yes but they all wore nice outfits

    I agree with this list, the most fashioable of WWE and TNA I also love Layla’s gear, she picks really great colors, and Kaitlyn stepped up from her god awful neon, looks like the 80′s threw up on her, gear. The pants are a change, nice to see a girl in actual clothes!!!

  • misschrissi7

    Brooke Tessmacher should be on the list. She has great style

  • aldo

    Eve was the best

    I like alicia’s it different and stands out as well as eve’s. Very creative

  • JD Sensations

    They are all smoking hot.

  • Blac Chyna

    Natalya wardrobe is lacking lately she use to have awesome attires

  • k2evecrew

    Kelly always got her hair done & her outfits was always on point , maybe she can start Alittle clothing line like how velvet did

  • Raekon

    I agree with the list.

    - Aksanas suits are great, most of all her red one.
    - Rosas valet outfits had been great partially
    - Kaitlyns newer attires are far better than what she wore before and the streetware look really looks great on her
    - Tara had several great outfits and were also known from her Victoria times for her great attires

  • Deezo88

    Alicia Fox. :)

  • Steven6

    I sometimes wish Rosa’s wrestling would have worked out because we would have seen some great outfits through the years I bet. I can’t stand the blue two piece she wears as a manager every show now….
    But back to this year, Alicia is definitely an individual. She stands out most in the fashion stakes for me.

    I’d say gail out of the pics but i think layla,rosa,gail,alicia,tara is all i can think right now…

  • K2Evefan

    I agreeo completely but i definitely would have put layla in there as well. Her ring gear since her returm has been amazing and beautiful.
