Diva Dirt Style Jury: Week of October 5th, 2009

ddstylejury

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!

ALICIA FOX
Erin: Not digging the mosaic or whatever’s going on on her tights. There’s just too much going on, and a crazy pattern like that isn’t all that figure-flattering, even though Alicia’s a really skinny girl. Her hair and headband kick ass, though. 5/10
Melanie: I like it, but I’m not loving it. I felt she could’ve gone for more of a black sequined look like Michelle wore on SmackDown or Torrie used to wear, that would’ve looked better. As is, I think it looks a little garish. 5/10
Steven: Alicia’s really been on a black kick as of late, huh? This is probably my favorite of all of Alicia’s in-ring outfits. 9/10
Tiffany: I was digging this attire on Ms. Foxy.  Alicia has proven time and time again that black suits her and that she can work it quite well. 7/10

EVE TORRES
Erin: Eve kind of looks like she stepped out of the 80’s: members only jacket, black sequins, tights, belly chain, teased hair.. I wasn’t too coherent/alive for the 80s, so I’m not an expert on the style of the era, but I’ve never been too big on it. On Eve, it doesn’t look as “costume party” as it could, but I’m still not liking it all that much. Though, I do like the seafoam color on the jacket. 6/10
Melanie: Not feeling this one at all. The jacket looked Ninja Turtle-y, the bra under the jacket was trashy. The pants, I thought the bottom half may be salvagable but on closer look they had this weird look to it and the crotch looks really gah. Oh and the Jessie Spano hair? Put down your Saved by the Bell DVDs, Eve. 4/10
Steven: Loving the green leather jacket, but I could do without the tights. Overall, not a bad look. 7/10
Tiffany: I don’t understand the concept of cropped jackets (especially matched with teeny-weeny tops).  Then again, I don’t understand the outfit altogether.  Perhaps if the sleeves were a bit longer and the jacket was zipped up more (think Lacey Von Erich circa her TNA debut), then it’d be more to my liking.  As it stands right now, this outfit doesn’t do much for me.  Pass on the shiny tights. 6/10

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

LACEY VON ERICH
Erin: Lacey towers over Madison and Velvet as it is, so for her to wear head-to-toe black pleather isn’t doing her much favors in that category. It just doesn’t fit in well with TBP’s style, even if we at Diva Dirt tend to loathe their lingerie and general trashiness. I think it’s important for a team to have a cohesive look, and this doesn’t really help them achieve that. It’s not an eyesore by any means, but it just doesn’t “work” for someone whos’ supposed to be a “Beautiful Person”. 6/10
Melanie: I like the bottom half, but I’m not feeling the top. Lacey has this beautiful blonde bombshell look that can translate to something classy rather than trashy [think Heidi Klum over Pamela Anderson], I think she’d look far better with more clothes, not less. I loved her hair tied back though. 6/10
Steven: Two members of TBP wearing pants? That has to be some sort of record. I gotta say, Lacey is looking good this week. However, the Hot Topic fishnet gloves are a bit much for me… 7/10
Tiffany: Lacey looked pretty alluring on Impact in that all black ensemble.  I liked the fact that she pulled her hair up.  At least, she looked like she meant serious business.  The red mesh/fingerless gloves were a nice touch and not overdone in Maria or Rosa fashion. 8/10

MARIA
Erin: 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
Melanie: Finally a look I can get behind! There is a God! This was pretty understated for Maria but she chose the right pieces; the top was cute as were there leggings. I don’t think the thigh high boots work too well as Erin pointed out, but overall [if we can get past the glove] she looks great. 8/10
Steven: Reminds me of Lillian’s dress on her last night, only better. The belt-corset combination kinda distracts from disco ball look of the dress. Good week for Maria. 7/10
Tiffany: I thought Maria looked presentable this week.  Nothing more, nothing less. 6/10

MICKIE JAMES
Erin: The bottom half is what catches my eye, and not for good reasons. The pants are baggy and unflattering, and the boots don’t help matters–they make her look stumpy and just do her no favors. The top is a lot cuter–the purple is pretty and the details are really cool. It just doesn’t go well with the rest of the outfit, other than the specks of purple throughout. It’s just so damn unflattering, but I guess her sinature in-ring style is unflattering in itself, so… 5/10
Melanie: This wasn’t blindingly metallic & bright, so I guess I should be grateful. I don’t know though, I think there’s too much detail on the top — with a ‘soothing’ pastel colour, it doesn’t need that much detail. 6/10
Steven: Another variation on Mickie’s usual, but in a gorgeous shade of purple. It almost looks like a everyday outfit. Definitely better then those god awful metallic outfits. 8/10
Tiffany: It’s about time that Mickie splurged on another outfit, and this one didn’t disappoint.  I’m not a fan of Mickie’s recent attires, but the purple was a nice change from the usual brown/grey/blue.  I’d prefer it if Mickie changed her look altogether, but the updates I can live with. 7/10

SARITAYLOR
Erin: I guess the blue and gold is the common denominator between the two, but I don’t like it. It’s too NFL cheerleader-esque and doesn’t look as cute as their past collobarations. Those past successes prove that they don’t have to look like they’re cheering on the St. Louis Rams. 4/10
Melanie: Gold on blue just does not work for me. Taylor’s top looks mustardy, I hate mustard. Overall, not good. 3/10
Steven: It seems whenever Taylor busts out some decent ring gear, it’s negated by Sarita‘s not-so-decent gear. I understand it’s lucha libre inspired, but that doesn’t make any it any less fugly. 5/10
Tiffany: Hate to say it, but… Taylor looks rather decent, yet Sarita puts a kink in her flow.  These two cancel each other out, again. 5/10

TIFFANY
Erin: I like red and I like gray, so these two together are prety nice. It’s a pretty casual look for her “GM” persona, but I like the change of pace. The sling’s gotta go, though.. ;P 8/10
Melanie: I really like this. Red is obviously Tiffany’s colour, because it just goes on her beautifully. I really hate her usual office-look with the blazers and such, so nice to see that ditched. This wasn’t a bad look at all, perhaps a little safe. 6/10
Steven: I’m usually a fan of Tiffany’s secretary look but this week I just wasn’t feeling it. The gray skirt and red top clashed horribly and was just hard to look at. Better luck next time, Tiffany. 4/10
Tiffany: Tiffany has a great shape, but this outfit does nothing for it.  I can’t fault the girl for the sling, but it all makes her look a bit gaudy.  Moreover, she looks rather bright and cheery for someone who’s just survived a “car crash.”  Is Christmas coming early this year? 4/10

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:

Saritaylor: 17/40
Tiffany: 22/40
Eve Torres: 23/40
Alicia Fox: 26/40
Mickie James: 26/40
Lacey Von Erich: 27/40
Maria: 29/40

LOSER: SARITAYLOR. Royal blue & champion’s gold aren’t enough to make winners of Sarita and Taylor Wilde, unfortunately.

WINNER: MARIA. Check the temperature in hell… the unthinkable has happened. Maria, put this date in your diary: The Diva Dirt team has finally found a contribution to fashion that we appreciate.
