Introducing Diva Dirt Style Jury: Week of September 7th, 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!

THE BELLA TWINS
Erin: Is there a 2-for-1 special going for red ruffled polyester? I dig wrestlers having signature looks but this one stinks, especially on twice the Divas. 3/10
Melanie: Honestly, their overuse of colour sets off my gag reflex. They have nice legs though, so good to ditch the pants. 2/10
Steven: I’m ready to see this cha-cha inspired gear make it’s way to the garbage bag. 3/10
Tiffany: This outfit gets a 4 from me, for lack of imagination and too many damn ruffles. I think I’m being generous. 4/10

JILLIAN
Erin: Too bad she was stuck behind a podium on “contestant’s row”, because I really want to see more of the outfit. From what little we could see, I kinda liked it. 7/10
Melanie: She looks good but nothing too exciting here, so she gets a middle of the road score. 5/10
Steven: Cute and simple, but nothing mind-blowing. 8/10
Tiffany: Jillian looked great this week.  I love the simplicity, and it’s well put together. 8/10

KATIE LEA
Erin: I’m not quite sure if I like it. I definitely think it fits her character and demonstrates some creativity on her part, but I can’t imagine being able to even stomach it on any other Diva. That’s a testament to her spooky persona, I guess.. Still, I think the look could be a lot more cohesive. 6/10
Melanie: Not a fan of this particular style, but it’s unique and her own & she makes it work Tim Gunn-style. 6/10
Steven: Loving the gothic look on Katie, especially the top. The blonde dreads gotta go however. 7/10
Tiffany: Katie gets an automatic 8 for this outfit.  I’m a fan of the gothic-kooky girl look.  Or as Tazz would say, “Zombie hot.” 8/10

KELLY KELLY
Erin: Kelly’s gotten the memo that if you keep a look simple, and you’re less likely to fail. The glaring hot pink is kinda much (We know you’re a girl!), but it doesn’t really hurt the overall look. 7/10
Melanie: Extremely pleasant surprise from Kelly. Simple and classy. 7/10
Steven: I love that Kelly went for classy rather than trashy. The high-waisted skirt looks great on her. 9/10
Tiffany: Kelly made me proud this week.  She looked all grown up.  Hardly the glorified stripper of yesteryear. 7/10

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

LAYLA
Erin: I love that shade of blue, and her new style is kind of intriguing.. It’s not the best “signature” ring attire in the WWE or even on Smackdown (Rhinestone overkill, for one..), but at least seeing it in every shade of the rainbow isn’t going to be all that boring. 7/10
Melanie: I’m liking Layla’s new attire, this shade of blue looks amazing on her. 8/10
Steven: Same outfit, new color. The electric blue looks great on her though. 7/10
Tiffany: I’m really not a fan of Layla’s recent attires.  The structure of the top is rather off-putting, and studs are only digestible in small doses.  The hair was looking good this week, at least. 5/10

MADISON RAYNE
Erin: Just because they’re selling cheap white lace by the foot doesn’t mean you need to incorporate an entire roll into your outfit, Madison. Waaay too much of what otherwise could have been a good thing. 4/10
Melanie: Torrie Wilson, is that you girl? I was never a fan when Torrie rocked this look but it looks ‘cute’, I guess. She does pull it off. 7/10
Steven: Maddie’s giving off serious Torrie vibes. That said, I didn’t like her gear much either. 5/10
Tiffany: Madison was sending off major Torrie vibes this week, from head to toe.  I like the look, and it’s nice change of pace from the lingerie she’s grown so accustomed to. The color works like magic on her. 9/10

MELINA
Erin: I like the dark colors–they’re a departure from usual Diva outfits. It’s definitely one of Melina’s better outfits since her return–no extraneous parts and the designs look cool instead of gaudy. Who says you can’t mix black and brown? 8/10
Melanie: A nice change from her usual colours, the copper colour complements her. 7/10
Steven: Not a fan of animal print, but I love the overall color of the outfit. 8/10
Tiffany: I’ll admit, Melina gave me major hair envy this week!  Real or not, girl is a walking Herbal Essences ad.  Plus, her outfits always remind me of a Mortal Kombat character.  That gets an automatic 9! 9/10

MICHELLE MCCOOL
Erin: I like the layering concept with both the tank tops and the skirt. The skirt isn’t too tiny and the tank top doesn’t reveal much, so it’s not your usual Diva-meets-hooker street clothes. It may be a bit too sparkly for my taste, though.. If the skirt was a plain black and she could keep her right boob covered, this look would get an A+. 8/10
Melanie: I really like this look, it’s chic and fashionable, Michelle has been looking really good lately. 8/10
Steven: Definitely loses points for that sequined skirt *shudder* Otherwise, not a bad look. 6/10
Tiffany: The shawl adorned too much like drapery, and the whole outfit actually shot better backstage than it did onstage.  Michelle can work a dress as good as (if not better than) the rest of them.  I could have just done without the extra piece. 7/10

ROSA MENDES
Erin: It’s pretty simple, and we didn’t get that great of a look at it, but it’s tough to go horribly wrong with an all-black ensemble. The one part that interested me was the one-shoulder sleeve, but aside from that, it didn’t really wow me.. 7/10
Melanie: She’s found what works for her and she’s sticking to it & rocking the hell out of it, I might add. 7/10
Steven: Rosa is looking hot as always, even in a simple black dress. The weave is even looking a little better. 9/10
Tiffany: Black is certainly Rosa’s shade (and she knows it).  It’s nice to see that bit of continuity in her apparel.  7, I’ll even give the weave a pass. 7/10

ROXXI
Erin: I’m not big on stars in the decorative sense–too Avril Lavigne for me. On Roxxi, it looks a little more “American Gladiators”, which is probably a step up, but that’s not saying much. 5/10
Melanie: It seems a like a more ‘traditional’ wrestling outfit, but it doesn’t work in 2009. 4/10
Steven: Kinda plain to be honest, but not horrible. 5/10
Tiffany: Roxanne, for the love of God put OFF the red light! 3/10

TARA
Erin: Apart from the cheesy cap, she pulls off the badass look better than any other Knockout–or Diva, for that matter–ever could. Quite frankly, if we’re talking MMA fashion, I’m just glad she’s not wearing something with the word “Affliction” emblazoned all over it. 7/10
Melanie: Tara looked so hot, her body looked toned and the black suits her incredibly. 7/10
Steven: Tara’s looking badass in her black-on-black ensemble. The electric tape is a bit distracting though. 8/10
Tiffany: Tara was looking mighty venomous in her MMA gear this week. 8!  I want to see more. 8/10

TAYLOR WILDE
Erin: Reminds me of Layla’s outfit in the cut and color, but Taylor doesn’t go rhinestone-crazy, so she wins that contest. It think the white laces are a kinda cute touch, too. The shorts kind of look uncomfortable, though. Maybe if they were a tad bit longer.. 7/10
Melanie: I really like this outfit and the bangs, she looks cute and well put together. 7/10
Steven: The electric blue seems to be pretty popular, huh? Taylor pulls it off wonderfully here. Loving the laces down the side. The bangs are cute too. 9/10
Tiffany: Love the blue.  Taylor knows what works for her and is sticking with it.  Can’t fault her for that.  I just wish she’d share the wealth with her tag partner! 8/10

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:

The Bella Twins: 12/40
Roxxi: 17/40
Madison Rayne: 25/40
Katie Lea: 27/40
Layla: 27/40
Jillian: 28/40
Michelle McCool: 29/40
Kelly Kelly: 30/40
Rosa Mendes: 30/40
Tara: 30/40
Taylor Wilde: 31/40
Melina: 32/40

LOSER(S): THE BELLA TWINS. I guess we’ll never forget the way these “ladies in red” look tonight, but they won’t be fond memories.

WINNER: MELINA. Beating out Taylor by a single point, Melina wins this one by the skin of her teeth, or should we say tights?
