Maybe 'WTF' in this case means "Who'd They Fit?" ...

'Asymmetric Jeans' turning heads online
A Ukrainian fashion designer's latest jeans are going viral not for their $377 price tag but for their bizarre asymmetrical design.

Designer Ksenia Schnaider took to Instagram to unveil the "Asymmetric Jeans," which feature one fitted leg and one flared leg.

Schnaider said the jeans, which have sparked a wide range of responses online, will soon be offered for $377 on her web site.

"I was told the idea was too crazy and that nobody needs jeans like this, so I gave up on the idea for a couple of seasons, but in the end I decided to go for it" ...

I was watching the documentary on BBC Four about Orson Welles, and Mark Cousins (the director) filmed some of it in Chicago, Welles' old haunt. During that bit, I thought, what's the raised railway system from The French Connection in New York doing in the Windy City? Then I twigged they had one in both cities. It'll be on iPlayer if you want to check it out, around 20 minutes in I think.

‘I’ve just had some Botox done down Superdrug.’
‘Are you mad?’
‘Funny, that was the first thing they said.’

Mental Health: Tougher checks before Superdrug Botox

High street retailer Superdrug is to introduce tougher mental health checks before performing cosmetic procedures, following criticism by the NHS.
Prof Stephen Powis, the medical director of NHS England, said the injections risked fuelling mental health disorders - and the health service was left to pick up the pieces.
Superdrug started offering Botox and dermal fillers last year.
The retailer said it was "fully committed" to the issue.
