Unwrapped (June 19th, 2011): AJ, Gail & Rosa


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 AJ, Gail Kim, and Rosa Mendes:

AJ
The last Diva I can remember rocking Converse boots was Trish Stratus, but she certainly didn’t wear them like this. AJ is leaning more towards a girly punky look, pairing the boots with a dress bearing multiple patterns and several pairs of rubber bracelets. You’d think the leopard print and the polka dots would clash with each other, but I suppose the placement of the prints and their black and white coloring helps them work together. Of course, a pair of knee-high Chuck Taylors isn’t the first thing you’d pair with a strapless dress, but she definitely makes it work. I think it helps that she’s got a cute vibe about her. It comes off as a genuine signature style, not some fashion miscalculation. Her poses help reinforce that cute persona, as she’s kicking up her heel, playing with the dress, and smiling all the while. This style certainly works for her, and really makes her stand out. I hope she allows that difference to stay in future shoots, and doesn’t just succumb to the usual Diva heels-and-dresses looks.

Gail Kim
Almost everything Gail does she does with the agility of a cat, and even in this photoshoot you can see it: she’s posing on a chair in high-heeled boots and looks perfectly at ease. You can almost picture her landing on her feet if someone tipped over the chair. In addition to the footwear, she’s also wearing a white strapless top that matches the boots along with some some black jeans. She looks amazing, and her poses serve to add even more interest: she props her feet up against the back of the chair, sits on the back of it, lounges across it and even crouches in front of it. It look like she was constantly moving, and I like the effort to create diverse photos. She really uses the chair for all it’s worth, even going so far as to demonstrate her in-ring agility with it. Maybe her next photoshoot can step up the agility demonstration even more–posing on a fire escape, anyone?

Rosa Mendes
Going for stylish simplicity, Rosa’s wearing a long-sleeved black dress and black boots with a major pop of brightness delivered by a white hat. The hat becomes her posing partner, in a sense: it’s constantly moving, she’s constantly got a hand on it, and she seems to be posing around it. In a way, it becomes a bit repetitive, but I still think she rocks it. She’s certainly got a cool enough vibe about her to make the hat look stylish, and not like some try-hard accessory. She really looks great. The poses are nice and diverse as well, but I still think there was too much attention paid to the hat–it’s almost the focus of the shoot, instead of Rosa. Maybe if it stayed put for a few shots, I’d feel that it blended in better. Still, she pulls off the look, and I’m sure not every Diva could do that. Hats tend to either look super stylish or super ridiculous to me. Rosa definitely falls into the “super stylish” category.
