Oh dear, oh dear, words cannot describe the sheer cringe-worthy horror we’re experiencing this morning after seeing this image of British TV cook Nigella Lawson – it honestly has to be one of the worst items of ‘swimwear’ we have ever seen. And, quite frankly, we’re not exaggerating.
The author of How to be a Domestic Goddess and presenter of numerous cookery programmes was not in fact wearing the sinful wetsuit as part of her religion – nope, that’s right, she willingly chose to wear this monstrous cover-up whilst holidaying in Sydney, Australia, reports the Telegraph.
God only knows why. Perhaps she wanted to protect her English rose skin from the Aussie sun’s burning rays? Or maybe she was afraid of wrinkling up like a prune in the sea? We’ve actually run out of possible answers to excuse this fashion faux-pax mystery!
But if we’re sure of one thing, it’s not due to the fact Nigella wanted to hide her curvy figure – she’s very proud of those curves and she’s never been one to count the calories.
It’s being dubbed the burquini (geddit?) – can you see it catching on?
