“When I am an old woman I shall wear purple” begins Jenny Joseph’s poem Warning, which is all about the joy of shedding your inhibitions as you age. I like the sentiment, but I don’t think it’s going to pan out that way for me. That’s because I’ve recently learnt that I, and indeed you, will probably be wearing purple much sooner.
No surprise that Adwoa Aboah, the striking, skinhead model who seems to have racked up more column inches than any other in 2017, won model of the year at Monday’s Fashion Awards. She showed up in a glittering minidress, all the better for keeping eyes on her, but there was more to the outfit choice than that. The frock’s designer, a bearded 29-year-old New Yorker called Michael Halpern, may not be as recognisable as Aboah — but he’s every bit as zeitgeisty.
Did you just flick me the Vs? Excuse me? The Vs. The two-fingered salute. The forks. An obscene hand gesture? I’d never be so lewd. My mistake. I’m seeing it everywhere, ever since I discovered Beyoncé’s new Christmas clothing collection. What’s the link? Beyoncé, or Queen Bey as she’s sometimes known, has launched a line of festive bits and bobs for the pleasure of her fans.
@RosamundDean@JonathanDean_@TheSTStyle Really enjoyed this, agree with the spirit (no pun intended) of it, and going to buy your book (though also found myself being swayed by Jonathan's evocative descriptions of the loveliness of a beer every night - whoops) x
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".
