Leandra Medine is an American author and fashion blogger best known for The Man Repeller, a humorous website for serious fashion. Good fashion is about pleasing women, not men, so as it happens, the trends that we love, men hate.

Medine’s first foray into blogging began in 2009, with her first humor blog, Boogers + Bagels, hosted by web-publishing service, blogspot. The blog’s final post was published on April 19, 2010, shortly after the launch of Medine’s second, and most famous, blog, The Man Repeller. Prior to the completion of Boogers + Bagels, Medine had started to incorporate “Man Repelling” terminology into her Boogers + Bagels blog posts, with such articles as “Daily Man Repeller” and “Man Repeller Du Jour” percursing her ultimate transition to The Man Repeller. blog.Medine started The Man Repeller blog in May 2010 as a hobby. The idea for the blog came during a trip to Topshop with friend Rachel Strugatz, now a reporter at Women’s Wear Daily.

To understand what the Man Repeller is about, all you really need to do is get hold of the home video of Leandra Medine playing with her brother at an Upper East Side gym. Their mother is holding the camera. Leandra is wearing, as protection against lice, a shower cap. She is 8 years old, and she says, for posterity, “This is my outfit. Do you like it? If anyone doesn’t … I don’t give a shit!”

Seventeen years later, Medine spends all day telling other women not to give a shit what anyone thinks about their outfits. At ManRepeller.com. Man Repeller is kooky from its words on the pages to the images related to the articles, here is just a snippet from a recent blog post called “I Found the Perfect Jeans”:

“HERE’S HOW TO WEAR THEM FIVE WAYS

Fact: locating perfect denim is akin to achieving ideal companionship, but here’s a question worth canvassing: what happens after you’ve uncovered your happy ending? Do all the fireworks and salsa dancing emojis continue to populate the movie screen that is your life? Do Taylor Swift songs play every time you and your loved one (be s/he human or cotton) are reunited? Are there fights? Ruts that seem insurmountable?”

For more of the blogpost jump on to manrepeller.com to read the fun yet fashion forward post. Man Repeller is a blog that i have been inspired from with the signature humour of the blog being infused with fashion referencing style in a unique way. With fashion being taken serious at times on red carpets with worst and best dressed, this is a refreshing take on fashion in a fun and creative way. This is well grounded with an audience and following of more than 184,000 Twitter followers, 547,200 Instagram followers and 144,000 Facebook followers.

In 2012, Medine was also featured in Forbes’s “Top 30 Under 30” as one of the year’s “most influential trendsetters, while The Man Repeller was recognised in TIME’s “25 Best Blogs of 2012”,and received “Best Overall Blog” at the 2012 Bloglovin’ Awards. Leandra Medine success as a blogger is something I inspire to achieve, gaining the readers and following to be influential in the fashion industry.

Giddy Up Fashion Lovers

The Melbourne Cup stakes were off and racing today, where fashion filled the race track with bright pops of colour and flamboyant designs. My favourite look of the day was the gorgeous Gigi Hadid who was pretty as a picture in a pink lace Alex Perry and Jonathan Howard jewelled star headpiece. http://resources0.news.com.au/images/2014/11/04/1227112/157744-aec6f34e-63c7-11e4-bdd3-73a977145716.jpg Of course Melbourne Cup is all about the fascinator, with the ladies trying to pick the perfect headpiece that will stand out from the rest. However standing out for all the wrong reasons was newly engaged Gabi Grecko, sporting her new engagement ring. http://resources0.news.com.au/images/2014/11/04/1227112/224176-7f20c32e-63c5-11e4-bdd3-73a977145716.jpg Swiss special guest Bec Hewitt was eye catching in a black and white Roberto Cavalli tassel dress and neon green Neil Gregg headpiece and matching accessories. http://resources1.news.com.au/images/2014/11/04/1227112/223869-2e90c948-63cc-11e4-a822-f0e45dcacc2e.jpg Red is a key colour of the spring racing season and looked radiant on Megan Gale and Rachel Finch sporting Yeojin Bae and Ward & Wylie headpiece. http://resources2.news.com.au/images/2014/11/04/1227112/094578-0bbcdd28-63ac-11e4-8f83-4f43733686cd.jpg http://www.mamamia.com.au/wp-content/gallery/2014-melbourne-cup/458354428.jpg Popping colours of red, orange and yellow were contrasted with pretty pastel shades of lilac, mint and pink trackside with most women opting for sleek and chic silhouettes. Rebecca Judd was slimingly opulent in a corseted Dolce and Gabbana dress and Hatmaker headpiece. http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/11/04/1415062344680_Image_galleryImage_Rebecca_Judd_in_the_Birdc.JPG Protectionist was the winner of the big Melbourne Cup day which sums up the ladies of the races in regards to their fashion perfectly. The spring races season has produced some amazing diverse looks with Derby Day being contrasted with blacks and whites, and Melbourne Cup brought out the bold and colourful putting a spring in the fashion step. The spring races fashion queen this year of course would have to go to Jennifer Hawkins. With a killer outfit at the Derby Day in a striking all black lace dress by no one other than Alex Perry of course! http://resources0.news.com.au/images/2014/11/01/1227109/249624-45134110-6169-11e4-a822-f0e45dcacc2e.jpg The dress was classy with an edge, with lace that looks like leather. Jen Hawkins definitely marked her 10 years since making her fashion debut at Flemington, the face of Myer can do no wrong! What was your favourite spring racing season look?

Orange is the new black!

This weekend I took to this trend with my outfit consisting of the bright orange colour fashion must have this spring wearing the Babydoll Maxi dress from Hello Molly Fashion.

The fiery hue has been spotted all over spring 2014 ready to wear shows, making its way from lips to clothes, bags and shoes. With the addictive television series Orange Is The New Black not even realising they were predicting a major colour moment for this seasons fashion trends.

Dare Hair

Bold hair colours is a new trend that is sticking around this spring with celebrities from Kylie Jenner to Nicole Richie daring to stand out. I completed my weekend look with a pastel blue toned hair colour that complemented the orange dress to my surprise. New brands have taken advantage of this array of colours on the top of our heads with Nak hair for the brave and permanent colour and Dare Hair Colour around for a good time not a long time with wash out hair coloured products.

The Myer SS15 Launch injected fun with coloured hair by Kevin Murphy to set the ice cream pop tone with high-profile names providing a star-studded boost to the show, which had models stomping down the catwalk with candy-coloured hair.

Style Crush: Christine Centenara.

title

She is the darling of the Australian fashion world, super Stylist and consultant to Kanye West and Ksubi, and recently Senior Fashion Editor at Vogue Australia (moving over from Harpers Bazaar). She is the uber stylish Christine Centenera.

She has incredible style. One of those people who is just always immaculately put together and always wears her fashion, never lets it wear her.”

Christine´s style may be defined as “too brave” or “too much”, often seen in bold outfits Christine’s look mixes fashion and function: strong shoulder blazers, baroque style, peplum, lace, controversial see-through fabrics and is never intimidated by matching oversized clothes with statement shoes. Or even layering patterned pants, draped shirts and jackets with her signature sunglasses for impeccable street style.

  She likes to keep it simple with basic colors though: black, white, nude and grey.
