There are some more details out on the "fashion consulting" session that took place a few months ago.
As noted earlier, Ember Moon told Chris Van Vliet that when Triple H left NXT and the show was rebranded as NXT 2.0, a meeting was held with the female talent to encourage them to "dress sexier" and to wear things that are more revealing. Moon stated that Mandy Rose was referenced as an example of what they wanted.
Moon stated, "Like I see where this is going between booty butt cheek shorts meeting and them telling girls to alter their gear to make it more revealing. And some people were very uncomfortable with that. And they were like, 'Nope, this is what they want. You got to do it.' It didn't matter how that person felt. And I was like, this isn't what I signed up for anymore. This isn't about the wrestling. This isn't about the art that we create in the ring. This is turning into everything that I left on Raw and Smackdown."
Per an Instagram post, the meeting happened last October and WWE brought in Melanie Pace to speak to the NXT talent. Pace's Instagram bio states that she is an "on air expert" and "fashion stylist."
Fightful states that talent blamed John Laurinaitis for the meeting but there's no confirmation that he had anything to do with it. Vince McMahon would have the final say on anything that happens in the company and Laurinaitis would follow through on orders but it's also worth noting that there have been reports for years about women during the Divas era being hired after Laurinaitis found them in bikini catalogs.
Fightful reports that one talent at the meeting said that they were encouraged to dress similarly backstage but "dress sexier" wasn't said but it was implied. It was also noted that numerous women refused to go to the meetings.
