Thank the stars for Leandra Medine, whose blog, The Man Repeller, has made dressing for fellow fashion lovers (and not, say, men) the standard.
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.
