NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Many ladies love their handbags and will spend a lot of money for the latest and greatest, but a new study says what is inside those bags may be covered in germs worse than what you’ll find in the bathroom.
Leandra, who started her blog just more than two years ago to chronicle the sad state of her love life, has made nearly every facet of her life public knowledge under the guise of Man Repelling. Still, when the 23-year-old wed her on-and-off-again boyfriend (Abie Cohen, the dude commonly known as "some guy who works in finance, I think"), she kept most of the details under wraps.
Beyond one diarrhea joke via Twitter, most of us had no idea Leandra would tie the knot on an unsuspecting Thursday night, and that leads me to believe she may or may not even discuss the night on her blog. To make up for lost, unblogged time, here's every detail I could possibly compile about Leandra Medine's wedding, plus photos for your gawking pleasure.
First, the nuptials, which took place in a Midnight in Paris-inspired purple velvet gilded room at Manhattan's St. Regis Hotel, were decidedly the anti-Kate Middleton. Despite rumors that she would walk down the aisle in custom Prabal Gurung (she confirmed in her Avenue interview earlier this year), Leandra said "it didn't work out" and instead wore off-the-rack Marchesa (it was "tight on top and then it explodes at the bottom") along with a much-coveted arm party. Medine said her dress looked a lot like a longer version of Miranda Kerr's 2011 Met Gala dress (and it does), but in true MR form, she supplemented the one-shouldered dress with a custom white satin Rebecca Minkoff moto jacket. In not-so-MR-form, the bride also wore fake lashes. Anyway, bridesmaids (including the ladies of DANNIJO) were told they could wear any dress, as long as it was a shade of mint, light pink or light yellow to match their custom floral headpieces. After exchanging vows in bedazzled platforms (complete with LM and AC , Leandra threw on a white leather vest by Lyndsey Butler. Lastly, the Man Repeller has no idea if there was cake, mostly because she was too busy thinking about Celine handbags. She hasn't disclosed where she'll be honeymooning, but she did take the time to tweet (at herself, no less) that it smells like the ocean. Phew.
