Wendy Shay has stumbled across so many fashion blunders it is almost a ridiculous thought that she will continue to take risks in the world of style. She had many heads nodding no during her red carpet heydays until she put the icing on the cake, where she wore a crop top spandex outfit to have a photo-op with popular ex Ghanaian President John Kufour.
Just when you thought that was it, she hits the internet and TV with a barrage of heavily promoted videos with little to no styling in them. Despite that, here on FashionGHANA.com, we saw light in Wendy Shay’s style and recognize her signature casual style that she did rock quite well, which was her exposed belly and unzipped pants.
What can we say, it was definitely her unique presentation, and it was beginning to stick, all up until today? Wendy Shay decided to take on Goth fashion and expose it to her audience. In case you are a little curious about Goth, it is a subculture that began in the United Kingdom during the early 1980s. It was developed by fans of gothic rock, an offshoot of the post-punk music genre. The name goth was derived directly from the genre.
It is usually aligned with death, rituals and satanic beliefs. People who consider themselves as part of the Goth scene usually prefer to wear black clothing, platform shoes, piercings and makeup. They wear black as it is a symbol of death, darkness, the mysteries of the universe. All of these things are themes of Goth music, art, and fashion.
Not All Goth Is Doom & Gloom
Are we aligning Wendy Shay with the spiritual realms of Goth, of course not! She is obviously simply making a fashion statement. In fact, it could be merely for a themed shoot or video as we never know with these celebrities. But in this unique picture, her hairstyle, platform shoes, choker, and all-black outfit are a heavy resemblance of most that embrace goth fashion, especially in the UK. And unfortunately for her style diaries, it seems her fans were not ready for it.
In addition, not all wearers of Goth fashion are followers of doom and gloom. One amazing style influencer we love bringing goth fashion to the world of black and African fashionistas goes by the name of Theresa Fractale. See her images below.
