2014 is a year of firsts. First time the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is in London. First time there are TWO Fantasy Bras. And the first time that Brazilian Bombshells Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio will share the honor of wearing the Fantasy Bra on the runway.

Here is a video to take a look behind the scenes of the girls first trying on there fantasy bras. Sporting $2 million worth of jewels, it’s an undergarment too pricey to be wasted under a blouse, so this year’s incarnation is branching out.

“This year, it’s more than a bra,” Mitro says. “It’s on our Dream Angels frame, so it’s a bra frame that our customers are very familiar with, and [Mouawa] jeweled them and they’re custom-made for each of the models. So they started working on these bras back in the summer — it takes several months to do. But what he did very different this year is he did an outfit, so they each have neck pieces and arm pieces and body pieces. So it’s really a jeweled body piece beyond just the bra.”

Look for them on the runway with the countdown on to the 19th annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and Foxtel has confirmed it will be airing the world’s most celebrated fashion parade Express to Australia on Thursday December 11 at 7.30pm, exclusively on FOX8. Joining them on stage will be performers Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande and Hozier. The theme of this year’s show is “Angel Ball,” which culminates with the models wearing a lingerie version of a tuxedo.

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.
