Diva Dirt Style Jury: Week of October 12th, 2009


Welcome to the Diva Dirt Style Jury! No more are the separate ‘Best’ and ‘Worst’ lists, instead we have come up with a scientific approach *cough* to compiling our weekly fashion column. The Diva Dirt team will weigh in on the different looks from the week gone by & mark each look with a score out of ten. The look with the highest average score will be our best look and the look with the lowest average score will be the worst look. Click each photo to see the look in full size.

Let the proverbial runway show begin!

Erin: I like the colors, as you don’t see that combo on Divas very often. (Not girly enough?) Though I’m not sure what design accent’s going on on her leg and top. It’s not the most creative ring attire, but hopefully she can develop an interesting signature style pretty soon–this is a decent start. 7/10
Melanie: This, to me, has a touch of the Glamazon mixed with the Rosa about it. It definitely seems like an amalgamation of the two, but I like it. I like Alicia’s little belts every week too. Alicia looks great in the darker colour scheme, but I hope she begins incorporating some brighter colours soon too. 7/10
Steven: I’m really becoming a fan of Alicia’s gear as of late. As usual, Alicia is simple without being boring. Also, the copper accents really work for her. 8/10

Erin: It’s tough to judge this outfit when you can only see the top at one angle, but to me it looks like a tube top with a sequined vest layered over it. It really doesn’t look that bad, but I’d probably like it better if it were all in one matching piece. It looks like it would be a cool, stylish cut. 6/10
Melanie: From what we could see on screen, it looks like a cute outfit for Beth on television. Not something you’d wear everyday but for TV, it works. I love the hair band and the way her hair looks here and the shiny vest is cute. 7/10
Steven: Something about this outfit is just off to me. Maybe if the vest wasn’t so tight. I know it’s meant to be that way but it gives the illusion that she’s busting out of it. I could live without the sequins too. 5/10

Read on for more of this week’s outfits and to see who’s been branded our winner and loser.

Erin: I like that Jillian’s sort of moving out of her bland ring attire, but this kind of looks like it’s busting at the seams, and not in an intentional way. I think the laced-up seams could’ve been better placed. I like the blue, though.. 5/10
Melanie: I like that Jillian no longer wrestles in jeans so that’s the plus side, but on the negative side, what she’s wearing is a little blah and lacks personality. I’m not a huge fan of royal blue either. 4/10
Steven: Jillian’s ring gear has always been a little on the boring side and this outfit is no exception. 5/10

Erin: I know she didn’t step foot in the ring during this match, but a TUBE TOP? To WRESTLE? That’s a FCC fine waiting to happen. The whole outfit, from the hot pink tube top to leather shorts to the hooker boots is just not conducive to wrestling, or any activity not linked to an occupation famously portrayed by Julia Roberts. I’m just going to assume that Lacey hasn’t fully grasped the concept of ring gear, because this makes Velvet’s ring attire choices look sensible. 2/10
Melanie: Seriously, this would have been a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen… if Lacey had actually gotten in the ring. As trashy as she looks, it’s sad that she looked better than her teammates but still, not a fan of this. 3/10
Steven: I was wondering how long it would take for TBP’s skankiness to rub off on Lacey. That said, she still looks less trashy than her teammates. 6/10

Erin: I loveee gray, to I’m really digging the top. The cut of it is cool too, even though midriff-baring tops went out with N’Sync’s popularity. Hey, she’s got the body for it.. But what’s the stuff around her neck? That’s not a necklace, it’s a jump rope! Or maybe it’s the camera man’s cord that got caught around her neck. Yeah, I’ll go with the last one.. Still like the whole look, though. 7/10
Melanie: This was very simple, but you know what? It works. She looks effortlessly great and unlike Erin, I like the oversized necklace. Michelle really is coming into her own with the style stakes this year, she’s impressing me a lot. 8/10
Steven: I have to admit, Michelle is looking awesome from head to toe (or as the case may be, head to waist). Even her hair is on point for once. 10/10

Erin: Great Gatsby! She looks like she watched Mia Farrow prance around in flapper garb and got inspired. It’s not all that terrible for a costume party, but here she looks like she’s a few weeks early for Halloween. Maybe if she lost the ultra-long faux pearl strand (that’s distractingly hanging around her right boob), it’d look less like a silly costume. 5/10
Melanie: Dear God, woman! Mickie, Halloween is still two weeks away. She looks like a flapper out of a 1920s costume movie. Unlike Michelle, here’s the wrong way to wear oversized jewellery also. Not a flattering look at all. 3/10
Steven: I’m loving Mickie’s 50’s flapper style. Definitely a departure from the outfits we usually see the Divas in. Along with the side ponytail, this look is pure gold. 9/10

Erin: Get it? Rose, Rosa? Yeah.. I like that they’re attempting to personalize her tights, but it’s a bit silly. The top’s certainly unique, with the criss-cross action, but I’m not sure I like it. It just looks too fragile to wrestle in. And the pale pink looks like something better suited for Kelly Kelly, not a bitchy heel like Rosa. 5/10
Melanie: I like that Rosa is showing continuity in her different ring gear — not that she’ll need it much now she’s on ECW — but baby pink isn’t working for me. Rosa rocks the hell out of bold, brash colours like scarlet red. This is a little too timid for Rosa and not nearly edgy enough. Back to the fierceness please! 5/10
Steven: While it’s not exactly my cup of tea, this look is way better Rosa’s hot pink gear. The baby pink color clashes with her skin tone and the mesh neck strap is a dealbreaker. Maybe if it was in a darker color it would have gotten a higher score. 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 this week’s winner and loser. The following is in ascending order by their calculated score:

Lacey Von Erich: 11/30
Jillian: 14/
Rosa Mendes: 16/
Mickie James: 17/
Beth Phoenix: 18/
Alicia Fox: 22
Michelle McCool: 25/30

LOSER: LACEY VON ERICH. Wrestling in a boob tube shows how naive Lacey is.

WINNER: MICHELLE McCOOL. Scoring the first 10 out of 10 score in Style Jury history, Michelle showed that grey doesn’t have to be boring.

Thoughts? Complaints? Conspiracy theories? As always, let us know in the comments!

She keeps it dark and relatively simple for her style, and I like the results. The dress is cute, though I’m not sure how I feel about the thigh-high boots.. They *almost* clash with the rest of the look. Other than that, it’s a pretty nice ensemble. 8/10
