man_repeller-11
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.

Fashion Snapper- Mario Testino

In celebration of one of fashion’s most sought-after snappers, Mario Testino’s 60th birthday, I thought I would share some of his amazing work as a fashion photographer.

mario_testino_3067_north_990x

Mario Testino began his career by selling portfolios for 25 pounds in London to wannabe models. Today he is best known for his highly polished, strikingly bright ad campaigns and his exquisitely styled photographs of the couture scene all which possess a deceptive air of insouciance.

Testino has shot the likes of Madonna for Versace as well as the late Princess Diana for her famous Vanity Fair cover in 1997.

His unerring ability to take beautiful pictures which sell clothes stems his popularity with designers and fashion editors.

Repost from Instagram “SELFIE WITH ANNA WINTOUR AND BAZ LUHRMANN” at the Chanel show. 

Close to home, Mario Testino most recently shot the Vogue Australia November Issue cover featuring Blake Lively:

Vogue-Australia-Cover-November-2014-Blake-Liv-001918

Mario Testino has a perpetual connection with the best fashion supermodels, working alongside Kate Moss, Cara Delevigne and Miranda Kerr for campaigns.

v4-My-Burberry-Campaign-ON-EM

Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne are two of the most famous faces in the world of modelling but have never been shot together, until this year. Burberry released the campaign of the two for the My Burberry fragrance last month in which is another archive in Mario Testino’s career.

You can visit Mario Testino’s new YOUTUBE Channel for fashion films and behind the scenes at https://youtube.com/mariotestino

Another defining moment in Testino’s career was the release of the book  “Kate Moss by Mario Testino”

A photographer’s tribute to his greatest muse

Mario Testino is recognized as the ultimate fashion photographer of his generation but his pictures of Kate Moss transcend fashion. The consequence of two decades of extraordinary friendship, and phenomenal glamor, this iconic collaboration is an intimate insight into the lives and minds of two of the world’s definitive style leaders.

It follow’s the journey of one of fashion’s most creative collaborations, from early days backstage at the shows to behind-the-scenes glimpses of the ground-breaking editorials they continue to produce for the world’s most respected magazines.

blog-_MG_5895 blog-_MG_5896 blog-_MG_5899 blog-_MG_5900

To top of his amazing career Mario Testino prevailed the “In Your Face” exhibition first shown in Boston 2012 and most recently in SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL. The exhibition gives the public an inside look at some of today’s most elusive and exclusive subjects through the lens of renowned celebrity photographer and Vogue and Vanity Fair contributor Mario Testino. Testino’s first US exhibition represents the brilliant range and quality of his thirty-year career and includes striking, larger-than-life images of international superstars such as models Kate Moss, Stephanie Seymour, and Gisele Bündchen, actors Brad Pitt, Nicole Kidman, and Gwyneth Paltrow, musicians Mick Jagger, Madonna, and Lady Gaga, and athletes David Beckham and New England’s own Tom Brady.

Lastly I would like to wish this amazing artist a big Happy Birthday, with many more defining moments still left to come in fashion photography from this man.

Spring Fever

Orange is the new black!

10702081_10152367814315373_979297595607472020_n

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.

The Ear Cuff 

FROM THE RUNWAY, CELEBRITIES ON RED CARPETS, RIGHT DOWN TO THE AVERAGE FASHION SAVVY GAL THESE BEJEWELLED PIECES HAVE MADE THEIR MARK ON THE FASHION INDUSTRY AND ADD A GREAT TWIST ON THE CLASSIC ELEGANT LOOK, ADDING A STRIKING ELEMENT OF EDGE.

The “ear party” is the new “arm party” as with most trends, over time looks and statement pieces are recycled and worn all over again, with the ear cuff popping up from the 90’s. Designers like Jean Paul Gaultier and Ryan Storer are making gorgeous cuffs that are spotted on almost every celebrity about.

In Vogue: The Reader’s Eye

“Do people/celebrities on a cover persuade you to purchase a magazine?” In my last class at fashion college I was asked to answer this question, the beauty of a simplistically gorgeous fashion shot on the cover of a magazine, the image on the cover definitely has that powerful impact to draw in the reader and consume them. July-2013-Fashion-Magazine-Covers-Pictures “The best cover is always the next one, the one you haven’t seen yet.” Anna Wintour

Vogue is a globally recognised fashion and lifestyle magazine that is published monthly in 23 different national and regional editions. Kinee Diouf stars on the cover of Vogue Netherlands magazine for the July 2013 issue. This cover is stunning with an array of colour, the cover was photographed by Ishi who has captured a beautiful image with Kinee Diouf looking larger than life. With the shot captured from a below angle it gave the Vogue cover a unique and original magazine cover the angle of the shot rarely on the cover of Vogue. With the sky as the background and the dark colour of Kinee allows for the colours of the garment to shine giving the cover an arty yet fashionable edge which I love. gisele-bundchen-elle-brazil-may-2011   This is an incredible image on the cover of Elle Brazil May 2011 issue, Gisele really resembles and transforms into Bridget Bardot with a recreation of such an iconic image with a current supermodel. The Black and white effect allows the reader to appreciate the image with no distractions of colour which gives it the vintage look. Elle Brazil showcased Gisele Bündchen, photographed by Nino Muñoz, duplicating an iconic image of Bardot wearing only black tights. Bardot’s continued influence on fashion, hair, and image proves that no matter what year it may be, her style will always inspire women to embrace their inner bombshell. clooney-w-mag Spotted: George Clooney in a customized Giorgio Armani suit, shirt and shoes designed by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. Blending in with the black-and-white polka-dot background, also designed by Kusama, Hollywood’s leading man stars as W magazine’s latest muse in its eighth annual art issue. A man on fashion covers is highly unlikely with Vogue US only ever producing 5 covers with men on the magazine, this cover is an interesting one at its best with the celebrity George Clooney as the focal point and the pink typography to bring colour to the cover and making W the magazine known to the reader. Men on the cover of fashion magazines can produce just as amazing shots as women, this image with the clean cut suit has been given an edge with the dots giving it an arty edge and to emphasis this with the added background which created a super loud cover. Wild as this outfit is, of course, he pulls it off. Because he’s George Clooney. The three covers I have shown in my blog are all different with celebrities and models on the cover, ranging with effects and shot angles. To answer the question i asked at the beginning of the post, personally celebrities on the cover don’t persuade myself to purchase the magazine, a beautiful shot with a unique and diverse outlook on the fashion magazine industry has a powerful impact with myself to want the magazine.

Fashion Spotlight: My Celebrity Style Icons

Aside

Following celebrities on Instagram gives the public an insight into their lives and especially their style, celebrities are a main source of inspiration for my style and this post is going to give you a peek into my wardrobe giving you an insight into my celebrity style icons and where to buy pieces the celebrities have worn that I love.

With her trademark blonde wavy locks, siren red lipstick and grunge meets hip-hop wardrobe. Rita Ora’s edgy street style fashion is a huge inspiration for my fashion choices. With her fun and fearless 90’s infused love of colour-popping prints, body con, hi-tops and denim statement looks. Beanie’s are an item of fashion that I have an obsession with collecting and Rita Ora knows how to rock a beanie in an outfit and those cool ripped denim and edgy jackets that are huge statement pieces that I love.

Rihanna plays by her own rules when it comes to fashion, daring and fearless in her fashion choices constantly taking risks with mixing style. Rihanna’s mixture of fashion inspires my style to be bold, fashion for myself gives me a layer of confidence with bold pieces in my wardrobe. Rihanna can make Celine and Nike dunks look good and walk down the red carpet in a sheer floor length gown.

Cara Delevingne is a fashion rebel glamour girl, with her off-duty style she has a knack for throwing on a pair of jeans, a comedy T-shirt and tomboyish beanie hat, paired with a goofy face, and still look utterly stylish. Her outfits have got her noticed just as much off the catwalk as on it, as has her refreshingly quirky attitude. I draw inspiration from Cara through her ability to mix with relaxed and glamour, changing from one style to another effortlessly, with the colour palette of black being a major source of inspiration and adding pops of colour into outfits for a change-up.

Nicole Richie has evolved in the fashion industry with highly coveted off-duty style, and her theme of style being bohemian chic. The designer also also experiments with rock and roll and grunge high fashion with both her off-duty and red carpet style being a fashion icon whom inspires a lot of girls fashion sense. The socialite turned fashion mogul has the ability to transform her look from funky boho chic to on-trend elegance in a second. Nicole Richie’s mixture of styles is what inspires my fashion to always mix looks and not stick to one trend, which has given me a wardrobe full of different trends. Nicole Richie’s bohemian chic style that is full of colour, patterns and animal prints is an aspect of her style I love and is her signature look that I gain inspiration from.

Naya Rivera is known for playing Santana on the hit tv show Glee, however its her style that I love. Her sexy style has been shown on the red carpet recently, with her apparent love of crop tops, plunging necklines on dresses and pantsuits, and leather everything! With a tomboyish side that comes out in her day to day style, Naya is the perfect mixture of sexy and trendy. Naya Rivera’s ability to mix style for different events and everyday life is inspiring. Crop tops and leather are two of my favourite fashion pieces that Naya knows how to style and mix to be on trend, with having an essence of sexy and edgy that influence my fashion choices.

Naya Rivera has a unique style that can pull off a variety of looks and styles of clothing, my favourite pair is the pencil skirt and crop top, Naya knows how to rock that look and styles looks to suit the occasion but always wears different cuts that show off her body that can look sexy yet sophisticated.
