Welcome to a special edition of the Diva Dirt Style Jury dedicated to the Diva of the Year, Maria! Ms Kanellis has been on TV so much this week, in so many different looks, that we have opted to make her the first Diva to receive her own Style Jury special! Just like the normal edition, we’ll mark each look with a score out of ten — the score with the highest average score will win the title of Maria’s best look for the week. Click each photo to see the look in full size.
Let the proverbial runway show begin!
MONDAY NIGHT RAW
Erin: The dress, with its sparkles and bright colors is perfectly Maria, but it kind of looks like a modified Wonder Woman get-up or a cheesy Spartan woman costume. Tone down the gold and it would look a lot better. The giant golden butterfly the landed on the side of her head needs to go, too. 6/10
Melanie: I like the colour of the dress and the gold fits well, but I think there’s far too much of it. I think simpler use of the gold would work better, it looks as though the designer [maybe Maria herself?] has gone for too much detailing with the gold. It’d be nice if it just accentuated the ‘v-shape’ going down her cleavage. 6/10
Erin: Really, really cute. I love the shape of the dress, and the all-over sparklyness looks great and less over-the-top in a simple silver color. It packs Maria’s flashy style in a more down-to-Earth package. 9/10
Melanie: Love it! Simple, cute, fun and flirty. Maria looks gorgeous when she goes for the understated look and this is just perfect. 10/10
Read on for more outfits and to see which has been branded our winner.
ATTACK OF THE SHOW
Erin: For once, the glove doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb! The vest and jeans work good together, with the simple black and blue coloring allowing her to pile on the necklaces and still look pulled-together. I’m not 100% feeling the vest, though. 7/10
Melanie: Far too much going on here with the chains, the glove and even the jacket doesn’t suit. The top and jeans would have sufficed. 5/10
FRIDAY NIGHT SMACKDOWN #1
Erin: Again with the sparkles! I like the combo of sparkly top, jeans, and slightly-sparkly jacket. It pulls together nicely but still catches your eye. 8/10
Melanie: I like this almost as much as the ECW outfit. The glove does ruin it though. I think Maria would look effortlessly beautiful if she was a ‘jeans and a top’ kinda girl. The cardigan is absolutely gorgeous, it’s got a loose shape to it without being too uncomplimentary, in fact I want to know where she got it! 9/10
FRIDAY NIGHT SMACKDOWN #2
Erin: This ring gear is pretty generic for Maria–I’m used to her standing out in the ring. I absolutely hated the green leopard print monstrosity, but this is winding it down just a little too much. The jacket looks cute, though. 6/10
Melanie: Compared to her usual ring attire, I much prefer this. It has a whole understated feel to it as though Maria hasn’t tried too hard and it all comes together well. The jacket is cute, the bottom half is cute. I’m not a fan of the skull or whatever on the top, but it’s better than the norm. 6/10
So, how did the looks score? Let’s put our scores through our highly scientific “Ensemble Classification Calculationomagraphier”® and see which we’ve deemed the winner and loser. The following is in ascending order by their calculated score:
