Leandra Medine and Her Androgynous-Chic Blog Influence Fashion

 - Mar 15, 2013
Leandra Medine is the creator and voice behind the now-infamous style blog The Man Repeller. According to Medine, a man repeller is a woman who dresses not for the opposite sex, but to suit her own personality and satisfy sartorial curiosity. The art of man repelling is based in experimentation -- Medine's influence has led to such brazen fads in street style as pattern-blocking, extreme thematic dressing and underwear as outerwear.

Since the creation of Man Repeller, Medine's influence has extended even further into other branches of the fashion world. She even recently had the opportunity to act as a model for Rebecca Minkoff's Spring 2012 runway show. Her creative take on style, combined with her quirky-sassy persona, makes her the perfect contender for Internet fame.
