Unwrapped (July 17th, 2011): Alicia, Gail, Melina and Winter


Every week, following WWE.com and ImpactWrestling.com’s photoshoot updates, we’ll take a look at the newest Diva and Knockout shoots and give you the opportunity to voice your opinions on them in a feature we lovingly call Unwrapped. Let’s unwrap this week’s eye candy, featuring Alicia Fox, Gail Kim, Melina and Winter:

Note about TNA photoshoots: Many of the new photoshoots on ImpactWrestling.com only consist of 3 or fewer photos, which hardly lends enough material for an Unwrapped post. In order to make it worth your (and my) while, I’ll only cover ones with 3 or more photos to them. Please don’t leave comments asking about a missing photoshoot.

Alicia Fox
This photoshoot screams “cute”, though not in the most obvious ways. Alicia’s dress, with its tube top and short skirt, may come off as merely sexy to some, but the floral print and frilliness, paired with the headband, is definitely cute in my book. Her poses switch between two different locations, a stark white backdrop and a much more interesting spot that plays with different shades of gray. Her poses are overall of the cute variety, her smiles and the positions of her arms creating photos that are interesting in their sweetness. It’s easy to pose looking all sexy and unapproachable, and Alicia manages to go beyond that to create a different mood for her shoot. It’s fun and makes you think that, despite her heelish tendencies, she might have some niceness in there somewhere.

Gail Kim
I love how rich the colors are in this photoshoot, from the walls to the carpet to even the tan shade of her dress. It all pops. The lines of the dress make it come alive, and its form fit compliments Gail really well: it’s both very fashionable and very sexy. The setting and clothing makes it a decidedly sexy shoot, with the colors and dark lighting and tight dress, but Gail makes it much more interesting with her poses, sitting picturesquely in a chair and leaning up against a wall, creating shadows and allowing the warm colors to pull it all together. Gail, like Alicia above, shows that she can do so much more than the 2-dimensional “sexy” act, and her photos are all the better for it.

Melina
Damn, those boots are intimidating! The gold, spiky boots look like second skin on Melina, almost like when Angelina Jolie’s shapeshifting character in Beowulf sprouted heels out of her feet. She makes them even more interesting/terrifying with a few of her poses, the perspective of the camera slightly warping her. It’s certainly interesting. The rest of her outfit, a dark, draped dress with gold accents, is a nice compliment, color-wise, and the accent at the back looks almost like it was taken from the set of some television show set in ancient Sparta. Her poses overall are more of the usual Melina fare: arms up, sly smile. I think the shoot would have felt more cohesive if the camera angles were used in more photos, creating a bizarre shoot that really would have stood out. And if any Diva could pull off a surrealist shoot, it’d be Melina.

Winter
Wow, I don’t know if I’ve ever seen Winter look sexier! She’s wearing all black, which isn’t exactly groundbreaking for her, but the dress, with its corset-like accent, the tall boots and gloves are jaw-dropping. Her poses are the same, with her eyes practically piercing your soul. I’m not quite sure what the feathery thing she’s holding in two of the photos is, but I kind of like it. It’s like she domesticated a small animal and decided it would look better as a glove. Obviously, that’s not the story, but it wouldn’t exactly be outside the realm of possibility for Winter. This shoot is, like I’ve said, the most sexy I’ve ever seen her. She’s truly knocked it out of the park.
