Ever since she first appeared in the international fashion scene Leandra Medine has been the most obstinate blogger out of the bunch. On a daily base she updates her blog The Man Repeller with a vibrant mix of style reports and personal anecdotes. The latest fashion trends and updates can be found there too, but don’t expect anything too serious. Leandra likes a humorous approach, which we can clearly see in her quirky streetstyle looks.

Leandra doesn’t wear designer clothes just to look pretty and show off. She likes to communicate her vision on fashion as well. Therefore she’s not your average blogger model, although she has been the face of Uniqlo and Vero Moda. She even walked a Rebecca Minkoff fashion show. All brands who appreciate Leandra’s quirkiness, just as much as her followers and visitors do.

As if her blog and social media channels aren’t enough for her to let people hear her voice the brunette blogger even wrote her first book; Seeking Love, Finding Overalls. Fun to read, like you’d expect from her. Just as fun as her video’s are in which she tackles fashion dilemma’s as well as certain do’s and don’ts while rocking the latest designer looks.

Original, quirky outfits which always have the power to draw your attention to them. Like a Tory Burch tule skirt matched with an oversized Philip Lim turtle neck. Or a pair of super flared Tibi jeans. Leandra has an eye for detail too. She parades in Chanel clogs, Prada turbans and Balenciaga belts. Her looks are chic and fashion forward, yet she doesn’t take herself too seriously. Plus, she doesn’t care if she looks hot (for men; Man Repeller) or not, she just wear what she likes and we love her for that.

Streetstyle-icon: Julia Jamois

She is a former model, but Julia Sarr Jamois is best known for her personal style. As a fashion editor at Wonderland magazine she visits the international fashion weeks and is the prime target for streetstyle photogs.

Julia mixes remarkable, colorful fashion pieces with funky sunglasses. Combined with her original hairstyle she often creates an outstanding, almost cartoonesk appearance for herself. Julia sets trends, dares to experiment and always stays true to her own quirky style.

No wonder this half Senegalese half French beauty was named one of the 100 most stylish people by US Vogue and is a true hit on many streetstyle blogs like Jak & Jil,, The Sartorialist and, from now on, Tean Peter Stigter too!
