Fashion is incredibly powerful when it comes to making me feel confident. If you look good, you feel good. There are no rules for me, but I almost always opt for flat shoes in order to feel comfortable and self-assured. Nothing can knock your confidence like tired, achy feet. Whether for a first date or business meeting, I'm much more confident with my feet firmly on the ground. I usually wear flats with a pair of high-waisted trousers to elongate my legs.
You may have noticed Selena Gomez is having a major fashion moment. Her recent sartorial tour de force is proof that the superstar has shaken off her cutsey Disney roots and transformed into a full-fledged fashion player. With the release of new music, Selena's back and better dressed than ever, whether she's nailing the art of streetwear in *that* dinosaur sweater or wearing of-the-moment pink — in her own directional way, of course.
If there's one thing we love to do here at ELLE (aside from eat an entire box of truffles), it's champion women. From up-and-coming activists to legendary feminist mavericks, a sorry-not-sorry attitude can have the power to inspire and galvanise. One fearless female who continues to fascinate is Gabrielle Chanel.
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".
