We've coming to the end of five days of fabulous hats and frocks at Ascot and the royals certainly haven't disappointed in the style stakes. Well, we know they have access to some of the best designers and milliners in the country, but not all of them get it right... While Ascot is a celebration of pomp and ceremony, it's also a chance for the royal family to show off their fashion prowess, be it setting a trend or coveting one.
If you bet that the Queen would wear pink for Ascot Ladies Day , your luck is in. We all know she loves a bold colour block coat but she saved her fuchsia number and matching hat for Day 3 of the Berkshire races. For the first day she opted for a lime green Stewart Parvin coat and Rachel Trevor-Morgan hat, while yesterday's choice was a summery yellow number.
The Duchess of Cambridge showcased a white lace Alexander McQueen dress for her outing to Royal Ascot yesterday. At first glance, it looked like Kate had reworn her Dolce & Gabbana number from her Ascot debut last year, but on closer inspection, it had slightly different features - such as a higher neckline and a scalloped hem. The Duchess accessorised with a bespoke matching hat, a Loeffler Randall clutch and the Queen's pearl earrings.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
