Unwrapped (June 26th, 2011): Alicia, Brie, Kelly & Velvet Sky


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, Brie Bella, Kelly Kelly and Velvet Sky:

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
There’s a lot going on here, from the hot pink heels, the tie, the gold thing hanging from her hip to the mirror. This could easily turn into a jumbled mess, but Alicia manages to hold it all together, the gray color scheme neutral enough to not compete with her fiery red hair and Barbie heels. I’m usually of the mindset that you can break a look by over-accessorizing, and maybe Alicia could have ditched the tie or the gold dangly thing, but the whole look is kind of charming in its untidiness. Her poses are good, and most interesting when the mirror is involved, producing some really unique photos with her reflection and the bright white frame in the background. It’s a loud, busy photoshoot, but it’s a controlled chaos.

Brie Bella
Brie looks very casual and beautiful, her hair loose and wavy, and her single long necklace is more than enough jewelery. She looks perfectly at ease, enough so to make it look natural that her posing partner is a chair. The way she uses it is interesting: sitting on it, crouching beside it and even leaning against it. At times, it looks a bit unnatural, like she’s selling the chair in a catalog, but I like the way its colors play off the ones she’s wearing. The gray top (which is really cute, and unique with its cape-like back) and black mini skirt, in a strange way, compliment the colors of the chair. I’m sure it wasn’t the intention at all to find a chair whose color plays off her clothes, but the photos are better for it.

Kelly Kelly
For a simple celebratory photoshoot, this shoot is pretty interesting. Kelly’s shiny golden ring gear plays well against the silver of the Divas Championship belt. Her poses do well to show off the belt while not merely holding it–she interacts with it and makes for some fun photos. You can genuinely tell she’s psyched about holding that belt, and it probably has something to do with the fact that she had just won it, given the fact that she’s wearing the same gear. She manages to make the belt look important and not just like the Barbie accessory we like to degrade it as. As a title it may importance, legacy and a sense of legitimacy, but I’ll be damned if it doesn’t look good with Kelly.

Velvet Sky
Velvet Sky’s main objective in this shoot is, clearly, to show off her t-shirt. The poses aren’t diverse, and I don’t suppose they’re meant to be. So, since the focus is the shirt, I’ll take about that: it’s a clever way to celebrate the length of her TNA tenure, saying that she’s been “letting the pigeons loose” since 2007. It’s a cute shirt, and is something I’m sure would be a decent seller if it was marketed as official TNA merchandise. Unfortunately, though, it looks like this is one of a kind, since it’s being auctioned off on eBay as we speak. Maybe in the future it can become an official t-shirt. Until then, it made for a cute little shoot that reminds us just how long we’ve known Velvet Sky by this name, or rather, how long it’s taken us to get used to that name.
