1 Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller
The Man Reppeler was launched in 2010 by Leandra Medine and, as a New York native, it’s fair to say fashion is in her blood. Medine started the blog as a hobby, with its roots beginning at a visit to Topshop with a friend. "We were laughing at how everything was so man-repelling: acid-washed harem pants and enormous shoulder pads, and I just said, ‘That’s it! That’s the blog,’” And so The Man Repeller was born. The concept of Medine’s blog isn’t necessarily about man repelling, but rather about dressing for oneself and feeling comfortable, whether your clothes are totally off-putting to men or not. Medine’s humour and personal style have made her blog one of the biggest in the industry (plus it helped that just three days after it launched, her site got featured on Refinery 29). She’s since worked with countless designers, is almost always dressed in covetable clothing and, of course, sits front row at fashion weeks with her other blogger friends and magazine editors. Can we trade places?
