Unwrapped (June 5th, 2011): Alicia, Kaitlyn, Natalya & SoCal Val


Every week, following WWE.com and TNAWrestling.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, Kaitlyn, Natalya, and SoCal Val:

Alicia Fox
We can all gauge how recent an Alicia Fox photoshoot is by looking at her hair, and it’s clear that most of her photoshoots (save for one) have been waiting in the wings a while, and this one’s no exception. Here she has her old, non-fire engine red hair, and is missing some of that attitude we’ve seen as of late. Who knows, maybe the ‘tude is all in the hair? Regardless, Alicia looks very pretty here, going rather simple with a dark dress and heels. The design on the middle of her dress is really cool, and adds some edge to the look. Her whole disposition in these photos, contrary to the look, is sunny, and her posing is cute and friendly. It’s not the most captivating or interesting shoot Alicia’s done, but it’s by no means boring. She adds little touches here and there to make the photos stand out. Still, I kind of feel that she could’ve taken a cue from her dress and looked a little more textbook “fierce”, showing a bit more attitude to match the ensemble. Something like the floral dress she wore a few photoshoots back would probably work better with these cheery poses.

Kaitlyn
Kaitlyn looks like she just hopped off a Harley, wearing all black, lots of leather, studs and fishnet. She kind of looks like Tara‘s WWE counterpart. Hey, maybe Tara could lend her her motorcycle for a few shots. Kaitlyn even has some edgy hair going on here, with black streaks running alongside the bright blonde. Altogether it’s a look that not everyone can pull off, but I think Kaitlyn does it well. It helps that she looks nonchalant in these pictures, relaxed and cool instead of looking like a try-hard. It kind of, in a way, reminds me of Ashley Massaro‘s look, even though hers was more punk rock than hard rock like Kaitlyn’s. I have to say that Kaitlyn pulls it off a lot better, keeping it relatively simple instead of throwing on everything she owns that has studs and tossing up devil horns. I’d like to see what else Kaitlyn can do with this kind of look–it sets her apart from her fellow Divas, something that a relatively new Diva like her could use.

Natalya
Natalya‘s mixing both put-together and casual looks here, pairing a tailored jacket, sweater vest, button-down shirt and heels with skinny cargos. Color-wise, is all goes well together, being dark and simple. Some small aspects, though, prevent the look from working. One is the untucked shirt that kind of goes against the tidiness of the vest. It’s makes her look more like a rebellious private school kid than a fashionista. The pants, with their pockets and overall casualness, don’t work perfectly with the trimmed look up top either. Maybe if she lost the pockets, the whole look would flow better. Still, I really admire her going for a look that, at least compared to what a lot of Divas wear for shoots, is slightly androgynous. I’m not saying a Superstar would wear it or that its overtly masculine, but it’s kind of reminiscent of the Old Hollywood female stars who rebelled by wearing pants instead of skirts or dresses, her smirking and super casual poses helping to reinforce that aesthetic. Of course, this look isn’t some statement or big deal, but I like what it calls to mind, so she gets points for that.

SoCal Val
There were a few new photos of Knockouts this week posted on TNA’s website, but it seemed like they were all in 3s. Personally, I don’t feel it’s fair to judge a photoshoot based on only 3 photos, so I’ll wait for more photos to be added (which they usually are) before I give them the Unwrapped treatment. This SoCal Val shoot is similar to those, since only a few photos were posted before the full shoot was unveiled. In this shoot, she’s wearing what pretty much amounts to a lingerie set, a pink, polka dotted set over black bottoms and stockings. She, of course, looks sexy and puts a bit of a spin on the look by untying the back. For a photoshoot that’s pretty much her hanging out in her underwear, it’s not trashy, and I think it has a lot to do with her poses–she doesn’t look like she’s trying to get on the cover of Maxim with serious, sexy faces. She’s having fun with it and lets the clothes make the statement, rather than the lack of them, and I think that’s what separates the sexy photoshoots from the trashy ones. SoCal Val demonstrates that pretty well here.
