She’s walked runways and covered magazines, and now she’s become a fashion installation. Leandra Medine–whose “Man Repeller” blog really needs no introduction at this point–scored a gig promoting Christian Louboutin‘s 20th anniversary and subsequently ended up doing the chicken dance in the windows of Saks Fifth Avenue.
Taking a page from the Daphne Guinness book of department store “installations,” Medine’s version didn’t take itself quite as seriously as Daphne’s Barneys window display. According to Footwear News, Medine took requests from fans via tweets: She made “silly faces”, performed the chicken dance, and tried on Louboutins for fans during her hour-long appearance.
Medine told Footwear News, “I’m a shoe hoarder. If I could only spend money on one thing, it would be shoes.” We’re sure her closet is drool-worthy in that regard. And what about her meteoric rise to fame? “It’s every girl’s dream to work with brands like Louboutin and Saks,” she told the trade. “For [names] as big as these to want to partner with me — a regular girl who accidentally became a fashion blogger — is huge. I still have to pinch myself because I don’t believe it.”
