Thank the stars for Leandra Medine, whose blog, The Man Repeller
, has made dressing for fellow fashion lovers (and not, say, men)
Though her mixed-up, layered-up style can be seen as the impetus for hundreds of copycats around the world, she's really just the latest in a long line of man repellers who, when it came to what they wore, didn't give a damn
about anyone else's opinion. Read on as we break it down for you, from a queen who accessorized with a beard to a designer who made "shocking" a part of her DNA. Fellow man repellers, this one's for you!
