The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this year was certainly not a drama-free affair. A handful of models, including Gigi Hadid, Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva, Irina Sharipova and Dasha Khlystun were unable to secure visas to walk the runway in Shanghai. Musical performer Katy Perry had to cancel as well, after she faced the same issue.
This week, the Guggenheim International Gala was the art party to attend. And not just to view the controversial “Art and China after 1989: Theater of the World” exhibition—the two-evening affair is best described as a Dior-sponsored bacchanal. On Wednesday evening, the youthful and stylish set descended upon the Upper East Side institution for the Gala Pre-Party kickoff, where the sisters Haim were the musical guests and the main topic of conversation.
It’s practically a fact that most holiday events are a minefield for uncomfortable situations. For example: being grilled by grandma about your dating life, keeping it cool while drinking eggnog alongside the CEO and running into that one-night stand under the mistletoe. Simply stated, we’re often invited to dress up and step out of our comfort zones a few too many times between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve. So, why not dress in an outfit that’s the sartorial equivalent of a security blanket?
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
