A member of The Big Jewcy and contributor to StyledOn andJewlr Magazine, Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller has definitely impressed usover the past year in her ability to exude an apparently un-sexy yet utterlyfashion forward sensibility. Ironically, while being carefree about hownauseating men find her drop crotched trousers and shoulder pads, Leandra hasscored many a lady-crush. Women from Manhattan to Finland are drooling over ManRepeller, which chronicles items as standard as a breakdown of Bergdorf‘sSeptember Magazine to Leandra’s most recent trials and successes in theirfitting rooms. Despite her only starting to grace the blogosphere this pastSpring, Man Repeller has definitely provided its readers with enough laughs,inspiration and images to merit its impeccably tasted author a place on ourBest Dressed List. While she is the first to admit that the way she dressescan’t catch a man’s attention, her ability to intersect American and Parisianstyle at any price point has certainly caught our eye, along with the likes ofRefinery29, Elle Finland, Nylon and designer and friend Kimberly Taylor, whonamed a not-so man-repelling dress after her. While adding phrases such as “ladyboner” to the fashion vernacular, Leandra’s proved that when it comes to ManRepelling, while you may be committing to the single life, the juice is worththe squeeze.
