Jillian in “Her Way”
We’re debuting a new format for our Eye Candy posts – complete with more detailed critiques and “graded” categories. View the photoshoot we’ve “hung” on our wall, read our critique, vote, and last but not least – sound off in the comments!
The Look: Oh my God, Jillian’s alive! That thought was the first thing that came to my mind when seeing this photoshoot, the second being “why is she wearing a toddler’s t-shirt?” You know, the cutesy ones with slogans like “Daddy’s All-Star” and “Don’t [cartoon of a bug] Me”. It’s not very witty or cute, but I guess I have to give her props for sporting something a little out of the ordinary. The black pants and boots make up her requisite ring attire, so there’s nothing really exciting about that. Her makeup, as always, is a bit much, only further emphasizing the comparison between her and a sex doll. Though it seems the closeups are the ones that make it obvious. The shots further away from the camera make the makeup less noticeable and thus a lot less harsh. I will admit, though, that the winged eyes are kind of cool. Grade: C+
The Poses: It’s all sass in this shoot. The poses are pretty standard, but the looks she gives saves them from Kelly Kelly levels of boredom. Her eyes are intense and sexy (I never noticed how pretty here eye color is!), and though her lips still look like they’re devouring the rest of her body, she avoids emphasizing them by not doing the dreaded “fish lips” pose. Kudos for that, Jillian. Grade: B
Uniqueness: This shoot is pretty lackluster if you’re looking for something new or exciting. The poses are your standard fare, and Jillian’s ring attire (which she’s wearing here) is probably the most boring of all the Divas. Thus, adding those factors together, you have yourself a photoshoot that’s pretty “blah”. The only unique thing is that fact that Jillian actually has a new shoot. Other than that, Blahsville. Grade: C
Overall: If it’s “her way or the highway”, I’d rather take the highway. Her way of doing things, like photoshoots, obviously isn’t putting her in the forefront of the WWE’s priorities, so unless she wants to completely disappear off fans’ radars, she needs to divert from that set path. Grade: C
