She may not be the WWE's best female wrestler and she may not be the most liked WWE Superstar backstage, but there's no denying just how good Lana looks, pretty much all the time. Arguably the most attractive female WWE Superstar, she's undergone a variety of changes to her look in a short period of time.
She first started out as the manager of Rusev. She wore a suit to the ring and while it didn't reveal much, there was something about that look that almost made the WWE Universe tolerate (if not even like) Rusev. Forget that he hated the U.S. or tried to destroy John Cena, he had Lana and that made him awesome.
Then Lana went on to work with Dolph Ziggler. She traded in her business suit for a jean jacket and skirt. Not the best look of her many, but still, not too many women can rock a jean skirt like Lana could.
She went back with Rusev and now, she's trying to make a go of it on her own. Her new gimmick is terrible, and as much as fans aren't behind her push as a wrestler, she's still considered fantastic eye candy.
Throughout her entire career, she hasn't been shy about posting or sharing on social media her many photo shoots or day-to-day moments. As fans who love Lana, we can only hope she keeps it going.
Here are 20 photos of Lana looking as good as only Lana can. Enjoy. I'm sure she would have wanted you to.
21 Calvin Klein
If this is how you promote an autograph session for an E! Autograph Signing, then you can pretty much guarantee she had the longest lineup. Something tells me these are not the kind of undergarments Lana wears on a regular basis but even still, she's doing a fine job promoting the Calvin Klein brand.
The eldest of four siblings, Perry was born in Gainesville, Florida. She spent several years of her childhood in the Latvian SSR, where her father worked as a Christian missionary and Perry and her family remained in Latvia after it restored its independence from the Soviet Union in August 21, 1991. So her character was not a total fraud and she had legitimate first-hand knowledge to draw from... interesting. I wonder if that's where she met Rusev for the first time.
20 If You Smell What's She's Cooking
I wouldn't exactly call this a regular outfit for the kitchen or prepping a meal, but if this is what she wears when she's doing her meal prep or cooking dinner for Rusev, one thing is for certain, who cares what it tastes like. This is the kind of look that screams, 'hey, I can't cook, but I'm hot'. I'm sure people will forgive.
From an early age, Lana aspired to become a ballet dancer like her mother. She attended the Riga Choreography School (the ballet school of the Latvian National Opera) and began dancing with the Latvian National Ballet at the age of 14. I don't think this is a ballet outfit either, but who really cares. It's still pretty darn steamy. What time is dinner ready?
19 A Little Summertime Boating
I'm a bit surprised there aren't more boats gathered around in this picture just to catch a look at the bombshell in the white bikini posing her swimsuit and her butt looks in it for the world — that sort of thing can draw attention. I can only assume many of these people didn't realize it was Lana.
The reality is, in an environment like this, there are beautiful women everywhere. It might be hard to argue that any of them look as good as Lana does at this very moment in time. Something about the classic white suit and the long blonde hair would make anyone stop in their tracks. She looks like she's having fun with this photo too and that's always a plus.
18 Superman To The Rescue
There is something sort of dirty yet misleading about this photo. Imagine a movie where a damsel in distress only puts herself there because she has a crush on Superman and wants him to save her. She has evil intentions trying to persuade the Man of Steel to fall for her
charm come-take-me-now face.
You have to admit, if you were Superman, it might be tempting. You've got to love the ripped t-shirt, the inviting body position, and the car. I mean, somebody put that on the side of their car and you have to admit, it's pretty awesome. If you weren't a fan of Superman before, you should be now. Lana makes you want to decal your car. I wonder what she'd wear if you put Rusev on the side of your vehicle?
17 Leopard Bikini Equals Awesome
There's not much to this bikini and something tells me the WWE Universe is totally ok with that. Lana also looks a whole lot happier than when she first showed up on the scene in WWE and was always mad for the sake of her Bulgarian boyfriend.
Lana's real name is Catherine Joy Perry and she was born March 24, 1985. Before she made her way to the WWE, she was working as an actress, dancer, model and singer. She definitely not one-dimensional and as you can tell by her desire to get better as a wrestler, she puts her full effort into everything she does. She clearly puts a good effort into her physique too because this picture shows us how hard work pays off.
15 Welcome to the Jungle
I'm not too sure if Lana is a Guns N' Roses fan, but when she wore the jean jacket with Dolph Ziggler, it suggested she might have been an 80's hair band kind of girl. One of the band's hits was called "Welcome to the Jungle" and this is the type of photo that could have been used for the album cover. For all we know the photographer strung a bunch of household plants together and made it a backdrop in his living room. Either way, who cares. Lana looks amazing in her gold bikini and showing off her long blonde hair.
At the age of 17, she returned to the United States and lived in New York City, where she danced at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Ballet Hispanico, Broadway Dance Center, and the Martha Graham Center of Contemporary Dance. Lana later enrolled in Florida State University (FSU) in Tallahassee, Florida, majoring in dance and acting.
14 National Bikini Day
Is bikini day really Lana's favorite type of day or is she just saying that because she thinks that her fans from the WWE Universe want her to say that? She does pose for a lot of bikini photos so it wouldn't take much to convince us that she's telling the truth, but does it really matter? She knows how to please her fans and her fans are pleased with this blue bikini selfie she took and posted on Instagram.
Lana knows how to use her assets having parlayed the exposure into a modeling career, appearing in photo shoots in publications such as the RIDGID Tool Calendar and working as a spokesmodel for the energy drinks Matrix and Red Bull. To her defense, she is wearing flip flops and is probably going to the beach. Maybe bikini day is her favorite holiday.
13 Don't Mess With Lana
If I was going to get my butt handed to me by anyone, this photo makes me realize that at the top of my list for @$$ whoppings would be one delivered by Lana. She looks like she's gearing up for a major round or two with the gym or a trainer or something. It's not just the outfit, but the look on her face that tells you she's serious about whatever it is she's about to do.
Is she starting a workout? Finishing a workout? Hard to tell, but she makes it look like going to the gym would be fun and hard work. Perhaps this is all part of her workout regimen as she works harder to be taken seriously as a professional wrestler. She's been faced with a lot of naysayers and people doubting her ability. If she puts the time in, she could do just fine.
12 Go Broncos!
There are few things hotter than a woman in your favorite team's colors. If you're a fan of the Denver Broncos, you couldn't have a better rep sporting your former quarterback. If you're not a fan of the Broncos, a little appreciation is probably due based on how good Lana makes the jersey look.
Before marrying Rusev, Lana dated actor and former football player Isaiah Mustafa. Mustafa is widely known as the main character in the series of Old Spice television commercials. He's gone on to by synonymous with the brand, but before that he was quite the athlete getting a couple shots with different NFL teams. No, the Denver Broncos were not one of them. Lana has since moved on from the "Old Spice Guy" to the Bulgarian Brute, which also kinds of sounds like the name of a cologne for men.
11 Gotta Eat Here
Lana wants to know what your favorite kind of food is? Mine would be pizza, but that's probably not nearly as healthy as the plate of food Lana has in front of her. What makes this photo so sexy, isn't so much what Lana looks like (although she does look great), it's that she's about to chow down on a plate full of food.
In order to have the body Lana has, there's no such thing as skipping meals or going halfway on food. As a professional athlete or entertainer, you've got to eat a regular helping of food and make sure your body is getting the nutrients it needs. Clearly, Lana knows what to feed her body because she looks great. Her diet is doing her wonders... even if she has the occasional cheat day.
10 Black and White Boxer
There's something about this photo that makes Lana look very different. The more pronounced cheek bones, the extra makeup, and the skinny nose. All of it works however, it's just not what the WWE Universe is used to. That goes to show you her range as a model. Even when the photographer decides to make Lana look completely different, she still looks great.
This black and white photo gives us the impression she's ready to go and open up a can of whoop @$$. The photographer also managed to accentuate the twins which isn't going to make any of Lana's fans sad. If Ivan Drago's trainer from Rocky IV was an actual boxer, she probably would have looked a lot like this. Don't lie... you know you like the look. Who wouldn't want to go a few rounds with this beauty?
9 Lovin' Life
Lana isn't just about posing and looking good. Apparently, her Instagram posts are meant to be motivational. "Live the life you always imagined" is her slogan for this photo and it makes you wonder if the life she imagined was becoming a WWE Superstar. From Lana's perspective, it's not a bad life if you can get it and she's done pretty well for herself.
One has to assume she is living her dream. In June 2013, Lana revealed that she had been signed to WWE and was sent to their developmental branch NXT. On the November 6 episode of NXT, Lana became Rusev's "social ambassador", using a Russian accent and developing a character who majored in Foreign Affairs and Business and Social Media Marketing in college. She gets to travel all over the world and pose for pictures like this for a living.
8 The Huntsman?
What exactly is going on in this photo? It's kind like Marilyn Monroe meets Cruella Deville from 101 Dalmatians as Lana looks straight into the camera and tells you with her eyes that she's having a devious time. It's an odd image, but she still rocks it.
Lana made her main roster debut on the January 31, 2014 episode of SmackDown, where she and Rusev appeared in a series of self-promotional videos and speeches. In early May, Lana began dedicating Rusev's matches to her "hero", President of Russia Vladimir Putin, as well as adopting an anti-American, Russophilic gimmick. It caused a little bit of controversy with the mainstream media, but any attention is good attention. Is this image supposed to represent the colder Russian winters? Or, is it just a coincidence?
7 Simply Ravishing
Stealing a page out of Rick Rude's book, Lana wants her fans to know that she's simply ravishing in this bikini shoot. While it doesn't look like the most comfortable of places to lay out and relax, she is right about the fact that she makes it all look good.
While this isn't the look she's sporting in the games, Lana has appeared in three WWE video games. She made her in-game debut at WWE 2K15, appearing during Rusev's entrance and winning celebration. She went on to make her managing debut in WWE 2K16 and appeared in the follow-up, WWE 2K17. They should have made it so you could style your character for Lana like this and then have her lay down and distract your opponent. I swear it would work.
6 Winter Wonderland
This is the kind of photo that makes everyone jealous of a guy like Rusev. It's one thing if your wife/girlfriend looks great in a bikini, but it's another if she can make being all bundled up for winter look attractive. Lana doesn't just make this look good, she makes you want to go out and immediately buy her a Christmas present.
If she wants to win any ugly holiday sweater contests she's going to need to pull out something a bit different, but depending on who is judging, she might be able to swing a couple votes in her favor just by giving them the same look she's giving the camera. Lana makes the hot and cold weather look work although we know from her earlier Instagram posts her favorite holiday isn't winter, it's National Bikini Day.
The WWE Universe has come to know Lana as being anti-America and pro-Russia. Even going as far as to promote Vladimir Putin. She's taking a break from all her Putin love to show us she has a little love for America too. Posed next to the flag and sporting an American one-piece suit, she makes you proud to be an American (if you're American, that is).
For fans that truly believe Lana is anti-America, remember she moved from Latvia to the United States when she was 17 and he character is becoming less and less about politics. She's more about her dancing background now and while we've yet to see her sport a U.S. wrestling outfit to the ring, you never know what the future holds.
4 The Wedding
Lana and Rusev got in a bit of hot water when they tweeted and shared on social media the announcement of their engagement to each other while their respective story lines in the WWE were promoting them having issues with one another. It was a direct conflict and the WWE had no choice but to pair them back together.
Since that time, they appeared on Total Divas and the wedding between the two was a major focus of the show. In this photo, she's looking fine in her wedding dress and she's glowing as the beautiful bride to be. Since the wedding, the couple is still together in real life but their stories on television have them going in separate directions. True Lana fans hope she does well, but they miss her with Rusev.
3 Extra Rounds
We showed you the earlier photo of Lana getting ready to spar a bit and looking quite unique. While we believe this photo to be from the same shoot, Lana is looking a bit more like herself here and sporting the boxing hoodie to go along with the gloves.
She has never been shy about getting physical and expanding her reach. After working as a backup dancer for performers such as Keri Hilson, Nelly, Pink, Usher, Akon, and Rich Boy. She went on to appear in acting roles such as an episode of The Game in 2011, the lead role in I.C.I.R.U.S. in 2011, the musical comedy film Pitch Perfect in 2012 and the 2015 sequel Pitch Perfect 2. In March 2015, it was announced that she would be starring in the WWE Studios production Interrogation, alongside WWE Hall of Famer Adam "Edge" Copeland.
2 Happy Valentine's Day
Pretty in pink. Lana is looking gorgeous here as she gets ready to celebrate the February holiday and is sporting that look that says less Valentine's Day card and more romance novel. Either way, it's working and it makes you realize Rusev is one lucky guy.
But, Rusev wasn't always the lucky guy. For a while, the WWE separated Lana and put her with Dolph Ziggler. It was an awkward pairing and it wasn't really a match that made a lot of sense other than Lana being upset with Rusev for mistreating her. Ziggler meanwhile has gone on to do absolutely nothing significant in the WWE and Lana went back to Rusev for a while. Ziggler probably isn't too worried. He's known to be quite the playboy backstage and probably gets a few Valentine's Day cards of his own.
1 Holy Baywatch Batman!
If this picture was released before The Rock starred in the Baywatch movie, someone should have called him and the producers and put Lana in the film. The movie wasn't a huge box office success like most of The Rock's films are and maybe Lana (even if only as an extra) could have helped save the movie.
It's a classic red one-piece and for years the ladies of Baywatch fame melted hearts and had guys drooling over their running along the beach scenes. It's no wonder. It's one of the least revealing swimsuits that Lana wore over the course of this list, but it's also one of the hottest. If they make a Baywatch sequel, fans need to start a petition to ensure Lana makes the film.
