Originally wtffashionshark.com was purely about celebrity fashion disasters, so common these days that it allowed me to expose a new collection of horrors on a weekly basis. Then I started putting it in the odd introductory paragraph, which has since grown into a weekly discursion on current affairs. It’s an odd mixture, I grant you, but one that seems to be popular. Of course, if you’re not interested in the politics you can skip to the ‘fashion’ and if you’re not interested in the fashion, you can stop reading after the first few paragraphs…
Anyway, the blog started out because sometimes I simply cannot believe that “celebrities” go out in public in the vilest outfits AND NO-ONE LIES ACROSS THE FRONT DOOR AND STOPS THEM LEAVING. And you have to ask yourself – how can this be? Do they not have friends or family or agents to speak up and say “Are you having a laugh?”. And then we come on to stylists. I can see that some people may need a helping hand, but in many cases the hand in question is not helping them, it is slapping them repeatedly across the face with a wet fish. Why don’t the “celebrities” just say no to the suggested item of clothing, or better still, wrap it around the neck of the said stylist and pull hard? Honestly, no jury on earth would convict. They would be carried shoulder-high out of court by cheering jurors. Instead they end up in wtffashionshark….
As we all know, the word “celebrity” is probably the most inappropriate word in current usage. All sorts of the most ghastly people with no discernible talent are now counted as “celebrities”. Often you need have only a pair of inflatable breasts and a dalliance with another “celebrity”, preferably married. This site will try its hardest to avoid Hiltons, Kardashians, anyone from TOWIE, ZOWIE (OK, I made that one up), Real Housewives of Nowheresville or anyone off Emmerdale, Hollyoaks or similar, although sometimes so horrifying is the ensemble that they just have to be featured. And some people are not getting in because otherwise they would be in every week, and yes I mean you Nicki Minaj, Jessie J and Su Pollard.
Here’s another thing. Such is the need to get noticed that outfits have become smaller and smaller and more and more tacky. More legs, more (inflatable) breasts, see-through skirts worn with large knickers, the recent and appalling trend of see0through trousers, slits where slits should not be (known on this site as genitalia curtains). And sometimes all of them at the same time. And it is all rank. WTF has declared war on them all. As you will find out….
